The Hazards Of Chain Migration

CBS New York reported on the bombing at New York‘s Port Authority this morning. Fox News also posted a story.

This is how Fox News describes the suspect:

Ullah (Akayed Ullah) lived in Brooklyn after he entered the U.S. in 2011 from Bangladesh on a chain migration visa, Department of Homeland Security Press Secretary Tyler Houlton said in a statement. 

The DHS said Ullah came to the U.S. on an F43 visa, a preferential visa available for those with family in the U.S. who are citizens.

He was considered a “Lawful Permanent Resident from Bangladesh,” Houlton told Fox News. 

This is how CBS New York describes the suspect:

Ullah is from Bangladesh. He arrived in the United States in February of 2011 and had a visa. He came in with his parents and 3-4 siblings and subsequently obtained a Green Card and became a permanent U.S. resident. Neighbors said he lived in a two-story brick house on East 48th Street in Brooklyn with parents and a brother, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported.

Somehow CBS forgot the chain migration aspect of Mr. Ullah’s arrival in America.

Four people were injured in the attack, one seriously, but none of the injuries are life-threatening.
