Prescott Congressman Eli Crane Introduces Bill on Chain Migration


Prescott-area Congressman Eli Crane is looking to tighten restrictions on chain migration. He introduced the Nuclear Family Priority Act, which would limit chain migration to only those within a visa holder’s immediate family.

In a release from his office, Crane said, “The current family-sponsored visa system has resulted in endless chains of foreign nationals overwhelming our immigration system. Worse, it further incentivizes illegal immigration by encouraging distant relatives of immigrants to arrive and reside illegally in the U.S. while they wait for a visa to become available.”

Crane also pointed out that since President Joe Biden took office, eight million criminal aliens have crossed the border into the U.S.
