More than 140,000 Bangladeshi nationals — larger than the population of Dayton, Ohio — have entered the United States since 2005 for no other reason than to reunite with extended family members, newly released data reveals.
Previously unreleased Department of Homeland Security (DHS) information shows the large-scale mass immigration that has occurred where foreign relatives can enter the U.S. simply because their family member is an immigrant. This process is known as “chain migration.”
Since 2005, the U.S. has admitted and resettled 141,501 Bangladeshi nationals who entered because their foreign relatives were already living in the country.
The scale to which the U.S. has mass immigrated Bangladeshi nationals comes after 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a Bangladesh national, allegedly attempted to detonate a suicide bomb in New York City, New York on Monday, injuring at least three individuals.[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/12/11/revealed-chain-migration-imported-more-than-140k-bangladeshi-nationals-to-u-s-since-2005/” target=”_blank”]
