A: If a law ending "chain migration" is ever passed, the effect will be devastating, especially on applicants from Asian and Latin American countries, as is the intention of the racist legislators and president who are promoting this bill. But it never will pass.

A: This racist law will never pass and it is not the law now, so do not worry about it. Immigration is a very complex area of law. It is a lot more than merely filling out forms. You need to retain an immigration attorney to handle all immigration proceedings. This prevents errors that can sometimes prove costly and may even be irreversible. You should always seek to obtain the best attorney that you can afford and not let geographic restrictions stand in the way. Some immigration attorneys will charge a consultation fee, however those that do so, will give full credit if you retain their law firm. Do not let geographic restrictions prevent you from obtaining the best possible attorney. Pick the best lawyer you can find and remember one rule: a good lawyer is generally never cheap, and a cheap lawyer is generally never good so don't choose based on price. Good luck.
