It’s striking how so many immigration activists don’t seem to particularly like this country. They tell us that America is a teeming mass of racist, sexist, homophobic bigots. But then they insist on bringing the rest of the world to live here. Immigration is how the Left decided to punish America.
Instead of the Census Bureau collecting detailed information about how many rental units have “broken or missing stair railings” (382,000 in 2010) or have had mold in their bathrooms in the last twelve months (1.1 million in 2010), how about the government tell us how many immigrants have committed crimes?
Not only have our post-1965 immigration policies increased America’s welfare, criminal, and terrorism caseloads, but now all Americans are being asked to give up their civil liberties to fulfill Teddy Kennedy’s dream of bringing the entire Third World to live here in America. […] The National Security Act of 1947, creating the CIA, expressly prohibited the agency from engaging in domestic operations. But now we have to spy on “Americans” because of all the al-Awlakis, Tsarnaevs, and Zazis. We have created two huge problems where none existed before — domestic terrorism and government spying — all so the Democrats can win elections and Mark Zuckerberg can underpay his employees.
We have no choice about native-born criminals. We can do something about the people our government chooses to bring here and set loose on the public. Murderous immigrants aren’t a naturally occurring phenomenon, like an earthquake. They are entirely a result of government policy.
Before Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act extended “civil rights” to the entire world, immigrants to America were far more varied. Seven countries each provided 5 percent or more of the total number of immigrants each year — Italy, Germany, Canada, the United Kingdom, Poland, the Soviet Union, and Mexico.
The companion lie to the “America is a nation of immigrants” lie is “diversity is a strength.” Praising diversity is simply part of the PC dogma, a mantra constantly being pounded into our heads. […] Contrary to everything you’ve heard, never in recorded history has diversity been anything but a disaster.
America is not the natural state of the world. The natural state of the world is Darfur. The British Empire spread Anglo-Saxon culture around the globe — Protestant morals, individualism, and the rule of law. Most British colonies rejected those values. Only the ones populated by actual British people — America, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand — managed to hold on to them and, as a result, prospered. The empire’s most successful experiment was the United States. Anyone who hesitates for a moment to recognize that some groups have it over other groups in producing free and prosperous nations has been brainwashed beyond reclamation.
The entire time it was processing immigrants from 1892 until 1954, Ellis Island received only 12 million immigrants. […] There was no welfare, and certainly no welcoming committees of ethnic grievance groups.
Contrary to PC nonsense about America being a “diverse” melting pot, America has never been a “nation of immigrants.” Most Americans have always been born here. Even as late as 1990 — a quarter century into Teddy Kennedy’s scheme to remake the nation — half of the American population traced its roots to the black and white populace of 1790.
The problems stemming from unchecked immigration are all over the news. You’ll just never be told they are problems of immigration — children living in poverty, childhood obesity, teen pregnancy, out-of-wedlock births, abysmal high school dropout rates, income inequality, “homegrown” terrorists, massive Medicare frauds, Internet crime, identity theft, prison overcrowding, the vast number of uninsured used to justify Obamacare, sex trafficking, the epidemic of child rape, the destruction of our national parks, drunk driving casualties, drug-resistant tuberculosis, measles and other viral outbreaks, bankrupt government pensions, lower reading and math scores, and shorter “Americans.”
