As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by CIS.ORG:

One of the most troublesome — but small-scale — portions of the annual inflows of legal immigrants consists of 3,000 to 4,000 self-petitioning spouses of citizens.

It is worrisome because every one of these entrants is granted a green card because of an odd reason: a failed marriage between a citizen and an alien. Either the alien spouse was abused by the citizen in the marriage or the citizen was falsely accused. There are no other reasons for these grants of status. They petition for themselves as no one will petition for them.

The article goes on to state the following:

Many of these marriages are more-or-less blessed in advance by our government; this happens with the issuance of a K-1 fiance visa to the alien at the request of the citizen.

In many cases a conniving alien, usually younger, more attractive, and more assertive than the citizen marriage partner, falsely claims abuse and brings misery to the citizen. To make matters worse, the Department of Homeland Security refuses to listen to the protests of the citizen involved, as it gives the green card to the alien without anything approaching a hearing.

In their report, CIS provided a chart showing the nations with the largest number of “self-petitioning” spouses in 2017. The chart also includes the number of “immediate relatives of US citizens” who were admitted to the United States in 2017.

Seven nations among the top-10 in terms of raw numbers gave us disproportionately larger numbers of these claimants when compared to the overall flow of citizen-related family migration. These were Jamaica, where the proportion was 218 percent; Peru, 208 percent; Honduras, 193 percent; Ghana, 191 percent; Mexico, 146 percent; Nigeria, 139 percent; and Brazil, 130 percent. In these calculations if a nation had the same proportion of self-petitioners as citizen-related family migrants, the proportion would be 100 percent.

President Trump has blasted the “chain migration” system multiple times. Below are two Twitter posts from November 2017.
