“Chain migration” and my Palestinian immigrant father- my Daily Beast article

Posted on

 I wanted to share the story of my Palestinian immigrant father who came to America in 1957. He was the first in his family to visit the U.S., let alone live here. And like countless immigrants before and after him, after he got settled in his new world he brought over relatives.  Now 60 years later there are Obeidallahs in various states who are lawyers, pharmacists, doctors, small business owners and the like all contributing to America. I hope you will check out my Daily Beast article about my late father’s journey to America and it undermines Trump’s claim that family unification of immigrants must be stopped.
