Note to Democrats and media: Do not use ever use “chain migration.” It’s a loaded right wing phrase like “death taxes.” The proper phrase for the provision, according to the Immigration Act of 1965, is “family reunification.”

Alter is absolutely right. It’s bad enough to hear the media use that damned “chain migration” phrase, which I heard The News Hour’s newest hire Yamiche Alcindor do tonight. There is no reason for Democrats to say it, even inadvertently.
