How GOP built family reunification a dirty word
( CNN) The media has focused relentlessly on Donald Trump’s closed-door meeting last week with US senators, where he had allegedly referred to African people as “shithole countries.” Republicans and Democrat alike have rightly condemned the language as disrespectful and inappropriate, and report stores have treated the speculationand controversyover whether Trump utilized that exact motto or a different one.
By contrast, very few are paying attention to another of the President’s word choices — less disgraceful but nevertheless, one with huge potential consequences.
Trump is shifting the narrative on pedigree migration by using an ideologically loaded expression — “chain migration” — instead of the more neutral words that have long been used in America to describe an essential feature of immigration policy: “family reunification” or “family migration.”
