Dick Durbin: ‘Chain Migration’ Is A Racist Term

Quote
Durbin also took offense to Trump’s use of the term “chain migration,” which refers to the ability of immigrants to bring their extended family into the United States.

According to Durbin, the term is racist and offensive to African Americans because it is reminiscent of slaves being transported to the United States in chains.

“I said to the president, ‘do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African Americans believe they migrated to America in chains, and when you speak to chain migration it hurts them personally,'” Durbin explained. “He said, ‘oh that’s a good line.'”

THIS is why I refuse to pearl-clutch over the term 'sh*thole'. With these people it'll never end until you offer them your throat.

At some point people need to suck it up.

Durban is a proven liar and Leftwing fruitcake. I'm glad Donny blew this immigration deal up if he is dealing with this absurd garbage at the table.

Exactly.  We have to stop allowing the Alinskyites to tell us what we can and cannot say.  Until we do, they will continue to enslave us, the worker class.

Durbin is obsessed by race.  Isn't that by definition racist?

He's obsessed by identity politics, an affliction he shares with just about all on the left, and too damn many on the right.    It is the curse of our times.

Jerry Cantrell and Layne Staley formed a racist band.

Remember kids, 'racist' is a liberal code word for 'criticizing any current or future Democrat voter from a loyal, self-serving special interest group.'

He did OK, considering all the challenges he faced at Glenbrook High.  The Thatchers are proud of him.

This song is also racist....

You read my mind, honestly.  The first thing I thought of was "Chain of Fools".

Also, a great song.

Only a liberal leftist mental midget would come up with a lie like that!

Is there anything good coming out of the state of Illinois lately?

We have Hillary Clinton, Obama, Durbin, Rahm, and reams of other bad things like a shrine to Barrack on the shoreline.

How about a wall around Chicago to keep the bad inside rather than it spilling out to infect the rest of us?

I'll see you the triple :facepalm2:

And raise you :banghead:

That is a term widely used throughout American history for many races.  If you look at Wikipedia it doesn't consider slavery chain migration.  I wonder if he finds Restaurant chain offensive too since slaves were cooks to slave owners?  Ridiculous stuff.  I am sure you could find liberal websites talking about chain immigration.
U.S. Constitution
Article 4 Section 4

"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."

Declaration of Independence

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future s

The last time I heard the word "Chains" in relation to slavery, it was Democrat Joe Biteme threatening blacks the Republicans would put them "in chains."
