Expert in international law advocates Trump's placement on family visa reduction for residents

The lawyer and founding partner of Loyalty Miami, Daniel Toledo, explains why the measures to curb immigration are necessary

Faced with the pressure of the government of Donald Trump in curbing the phenomenon of chain immigration between relatives-a fact that considers a threat to the security of the United States-the number of immigrants who obtained visas based on kinship has decreased considerably in this Year, reaching the lowest level in over a decade. It showed a data analysis of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, released by the Reuters agency.

For Daniel Toledo, lawyer and founding partner of Loyalty Miami-consultancy that has been working for 13 years in the segment of obtaining visas and transfers of executives to the United States-the president is not unsure of his reasons. The lawyer warns of the fact that many immigrants sometimes arrange until fake marriage to obtain the permanent visa and then take, besides the children and the real woman, all the rest of the family, as parents, cousins, uncles, nephews, etc.  "Trump's great tantrum is that they come into the country, illegally and still rent small homes to 15 or 20 people, destroying the rented premises," says the expert.

According to Toledo, American studies show that every person who obtains American citizenship takes with them eight more relatives to the country. In addition, for every 15 immigrants entering the United States, 14 have no qualifications for insertion into the labour market.

The intensified focus on chain immigration is being accompanied by a general reduction in the kinship-based visa trials, known as I-130s, revealed the analysis of Reuters. The amount of approvals decreased by almost 25% in the first nine months of 2017, staying at about 406,000 — in the same period of the previous year, exceeded 530,000, despite the similar number of requests made during the two periods, pointed out data from the USCIS.
