But only if you stop chain migration should they be permitted to stay. And apply for citizenship and pay your taxes if you love it here so much. Otherwise, go back to where you're from.

gohogs, how does that have ANY relevant context to this discussion? Oh, are you lost in the comment boards again? I know you have a problem sometimes in your trolling keeping up with where you are. I guess this is one of those cases.
