Sen. Angus King (I-ME), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that he is open to ending the practice of chain migration if it threatens national security.

Chain migration allows immigrants to sponsor other foreign nationals for expedited entry into the United States.

“I think [the topic] deserves discussion,” he said.

King said that it could allow a loophole for immigrants to bring in “people who shouldn’t be here,” but it also helped some immigrants assimilate and contribute to society.

“[Chain migration] tends to stabilize the immigrant population,” he added.

However, in spite of this effect, the senator told Mitchell he’d like to see a discussion on the risks and benefits of the program.

“It’s worth talking about, but I’d want to see some evidence first that there’s a problem here,” he said.
