In Jean Raspail’s 1973 dystopian novel, “The Camp of the Saints,” about 1 million poor folks from India make their way on hundreds of ships around the southern tip of Africa and up to the French Riviera. The international media use helicopters to follow the flotilla, and the news of the flotilla’s movements dominates the headlines for weeks.

As the flotilla gets closer to France, panic sets in, and fear becomes a political weapon. The government doesn’t know what to do. The president of France finally orders the French military to secure the borders and use deadly force to prevent the flotilla from landing.

Then, after pangs of conscience set in and animate him, the president tells senior military personnel to instruct their troops to use their own judgment and do the right thing. With the exception of some stereotypical holdouts, the military members take their arms and flee into the countryside.

The flotilla lands. The passengers have no desire to assimilate, and they murder people who do not welcome them. They change immigration laws and become a paradigm for other mass migrations. Across the West, pro-immigrant governments are established.

When the book was first published, it found favor in many nativist quarters. It is brilliantly written, and the standard English translation offers compelling reading and is hard to put down. It is also rabidly racist, portraying nearly all in the West as thoughtful, intelligent and honest and nearly everyone of color as avaricious, lazy and amoral.

Regrettably, the book has been seen in the West Wing of the White House.

I recount this brief summary of a French literary work because I fear its unrealistic ending and harsh, racist treatment of those seeking a better world may be animating Trump administration policies about the caravan of 7,000 folks from Latin America who are in Mexico and walking toward the United States.

Like the fictional French president, President Donald Trump has made unsubstantiated allegations that bad people are in the midst of the caravan. And like the fictional French president before his change of heart, Trump has called himself a nationalist.

Nationalism and its cousin nativism are dangerous attitudes that have come and gone almost cyclically throughout American history. They foster an arrogant aura about Americans who embrace them — we are more deserving than you because our ancestors got here before you or yours did — and they cause fear and hatred of foreign-born people.

They also lull one into the lazy mental habit of judging the moral worth of people not on the basis of their personal choices and fidelity to first principles but on the basis of their membership in groups marked by immutable characteristics of birth, such as people’s place of birth.

This habit rejects a founding American principle that we are all created equal and endowed by our “Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

ORDER IT NOW

The quoted words above are not just Thomas Jefferson’s most famous musings, which made their way into the Declaration of Independence; rather, they embody natural law. And natural law teaches that human rights come from our humanity — not from the government — and they adhere in everyone, not just Americans.

I have argued in this column that the right to travel is a natural right, even though it was not until 1969 that the Supreme Court recognized it as such. The courts protect natural rights by imposing a very high bar for the government to meet before it can interfere with them. That bar — called strict scrutiny — was crafted so as to make it nearly impossible for the government to interfere materially with personal freedoms, such as travel.

And the Constitution itself, from which all federal powers derive, does not even delegate to the federal government any power over immigration — i.e., who can come here. It just gives it power over naturalization, i.e., who can become a citizen here.

The likely claim of the folks in the caravan will be political asylum. Political asylum requires the claimant to demonstrate an intolerable situation in the home country caused by the government — not by economic forces — and aimed at the person seeking asylum. Thus, the failure of the government in the country of origin to protect basic natural rights or to enforce basic criminal laws — for example, permitting criminal gangs to rule — is a valid basis for asylum, whereas loss of a job is not.

Once an asylum-seeker has so much as the tip of her shoe on American soil, she can file an asylum claim. The claim entitles her to a hearing before an immigration judge. Most of these hearings take six to eight months after the claim has been filed to reach a judge. In the Obama years, asylum claimants were set free until their hearings. The Trump administration has detained them and separated children from their parents. The detentions are lawful; the family separations are not.

Yet people who want to work should be allowed in. My colleagues at The Wall Street Journal have demonstrated indisputably that most of the work that immigrants will do is work most Americans eschew. Their work not only benefits them but also produces family stability and increases wealth, which finds its way into the stream of commerce.

The blanket rejection by force of everyone in the caravan violates the spirit and the intentions of the laws the president has sworn to uphold. Those laws mandate a careful examination of all who want to come here — on a neutral case-by-case basis — not a blanket prohibition.

We who call ourselves Americans are nearly all descended from immigrants. Yet when our forebears arrived here, they were met simply by prejudice and government indifference. The poor folks in the caravan are likely to be met by prejudice and government force.

  1. You are not stupid Andy. You know the difference between Nationalism and Jingoism. Trump says he is a Nationalist as opposed to a Globalist. Like you. Trump is not an Imperialist. Like you. Open up your Constitution and find the place where it says the Chief Executive of the Federal Government shall be an Emperor and shall rule the world by force of arms. What is in dispute is the sovereignty of nations. Where does the Constitution stand on the idea of surrendering our sovereignty to a hand full of international corporate monopolists.

    You are not stupid Andy. You are an ideologue. You wear blinders.

    I don’t hate these migrants. They are working class people like me. And I’m sure they won’t take over your neighborhood or drive down your pay. I’m an old man. This is not going to be my problem. Still I hate to see what I always thought of as my country plunge into the third world. And so I get snotty with open borders ass holes like you.

    A daily reminder of just how poisonous “Libertarians” like Napolitano are. This country could turn into a complete third-world poverty-stricken multicultural hellhole, which it already is in many ways, and goofballs like Napolitano would be quoting Jefferson and waxing poetically about the founders, and scary “racism.” I’m sure Jefferson would be horrified to see what the US has become, as well as every other founding father. This is why Trump calling himself a nationalist is so important, we need to crush these libertarians and “Conservative” inc types before they bring us all to ruin.

  8. a founding American principle that we are all created equal and endowed by our ‘Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness’

    By ‘equal’, Jefferson meant that America, unlike Europe, would not be ruled by an aristocratic elite. The idea that he meant racial equality is absurd, witness the 1790 Rule of Naturalization which restricted US citizenship to ‘any Alien being a free white person’, and Lincoln’s 1862 comment to a ‘Committee of colored men’ at the White House that ‘not a single man of your race is made the equal of a single man of ours [click here and scroll down to page 370].’

    natural law teaches that human rights come from our humanity – not from the government – and they adhere in everyone, not just Americans

    In Islam, divine law rules the roost. Article 24 of the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam reads: ‘All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shari’ah.’

  9. [r] selected populations of the 3rd world are dangerous to me, mine, and the world. Absent vaccines, medicine, and clean water – a natural culling would have kept their numbers in check.

    The [r] evolutionary strategy for dozens of children, with few resources poured into those large families, should have been addressed by aid agencies and Dr.s Without Borders.

    We SAVED THE CHILDREN – and now they are a breeding horde of low IQ populations that have soiled their nests and now burst their borders.

    That we must tutor these people on the error of mixing drinking water and feces in 2018 is a testament to the folly of interfering with the natural processes that have kept their numbers in check.

    K selected populations of the West are told to have more children, when the solution to our demographic myopia is not adopting the strategy of rabbits and roaches to protect Western Culture, but tying aid to sterilization.

    IF that sounds harsh, wait til we see the extermination of large swaths of K selected large mammals because of our “compassion” for the least among us.

    Diversification is deified in today’s political environment… there won’t be any should these breeding populations go unchecked

    Rabid racism is the only solution to a world filled with low IQ breeding masses that threaten the very existence of fisheries, forests, and diversity of life.

  11. @The Alarmist

    regrettable, few social scientists are thinking about the biological directive of 3rd world populations to have large families because of environmental threats to their genetic material.

    Absent those threats, [r] strategy breeders fowl their nests and burst their borders. It took thousands of years for these people to triumph over their environments – which would have been impossible without assistance of Western Medicine and AID.

    If we don’t have a serious conversation about changing their breeding habits, the world will no longer be inhabitable.

  12. anonymous[340] • Disclaimer says:

    It took his Establishment water carrying for RussiaGate for me to realize that Mr. Napolitano’s columns often hide their principal objective in a fluffy civics lesson. Here, after paragraphs about political asylum, natural rights, etc., is what he wants readers to believe:

    “Yet people who want to work should be allowed in. My colleagues at The Wall Street Journal have demonstrated indisputably that most of the work that immigrants will do is work most Americans eschew. Their work not only benefits them but also produces family stability and increases wealth, which finds its way into the stream of commerce.”

    “Yet.” In other words, notwithstanding everything he’s said before to soften up your sympathies, Mr. Napolitano believes that your Uncle Sam should care just as much about a Honduran as he does for a Nebraskan, because each is worth what can be wrung out of his work “into the stream of commerce.” He lacks the intellectual integrity to say so plainly, and the evidence to show that what his “colleagues at The Wall Street Journal have demonstrated indisputably” is true. So he pushes the Founding Father button on the forehead of the TV-level dopes that he can still tingle.

    This column is a good example of why “Judge” has his nice gig in a pinstriped robe guarding the “conservative” edge of acceptable public discourse.

    It’s the spectacle of global capitalism destroying itself and taking us all with it.

    https://bloodyshovel.wordpress.com/2018/10/22/the-wars-of-the-sexes/

    It used to be that genes for better strength and health, for higher intelligence, for physical beauty, made you leave more offspring, while the unfortunate carriers of genes that made you unhealthy, ugly or stupid were unable to reproduce themselves. Well not anymore. The best people on earth today are all, thanks to the open sexual market of all against all (the extension du domain de la lutte of Houellebecq’s first novel) brought by female emancipation, squeezing themselves into big global cities, competing for status in a non-stop rat race which makes family formation impossible. They thus fail to have babies to inherit their precious genes, wasting them into these massive IQ shredders which dominate the modern world. I called them IQ shredders as IQ is the most pressing concern (no IQ no electricity, folks), but it’s really shredding all the genes of excellence that mother nature has spent millennia making for us.

    This is not exactly a race thing, as it’s genes for excellence themselves which are being wasted in the global status rat race. It’s not just Indians or Africans outbreeding Whites. It’s the worst blacks and the worst Indians outbreeding the best of their kind. The first ethnic group to literally go extinct due to feminism won’t be any European people: it would be the Parsis, long the highest-performing ethnic group in the whole of India. They are actually going extinct because their women would rather take PhDs than make babies. And they do that because women don’t actually like most men. Women are wired to like the top 10-20% of men, “top” meaning bigger, stronger and more violent. It’s how it works in most mammals, you can’t argue with 500 million years of evolution. Hate the game, not the player.

  14. Although I have come to reject the libertarian position on immigration, it has some merit that should be debated more carefully. Rejecting a desperate poor man or woman fleeing from a hellhole (or “shithole country,” if you prefer) is a lot easier from afar; I imagine that it would be humanly rather difficult if we all had to do it face to face (rather like slaughtering our own animals for meat). Still, I reject the libertarian, as well as the liberal, campaign for free immigration because I am sick of the social chaos it engenders, along with the simultaneous erosion of culture. The mainstream media, always ready to lambaste anti-immigrationists as “racist” or “xenophobic” or “hate-filled,” never even acknowledge this as an issue. Furthermore, it is hard work to raise and educate and civilize children; when you add to that the burden of acculturating thousands or millions of newcomers, the results are unpleasant to see. In any case, in all the libertarians’ vaunting of freedom, why do people like Napolitano never talk about the freedom to discriminate, to reject, to make distinctions between people, to prefer some to others? Why do they never notice how debased our culture is, with few things shared except team sports, TV shows and flag-waving? Our policy should be First things first, that is, save ourselves and then see what we can do for others.

    I respond:

    Hey Andrew Napolitano – if Thomas Jefferson really believed that every single male human being on planet earth was born “equal” and thus had an equal right to move to our United States republic, then why was he a slave owner?

    Did Tommy Jefferson believe the children of his slaves were born “equal” to some wealthy banker or wealthy merchant’s son?

    This section of the Declaration of Independence has always struck me as pure BS – exactly the same as ex Beatles John Lennon’s “Imagine” where we’re supposed to image the entire world becoming one, equal with no nations, no religions no possession. John Lennon wrote his “imagine” nonsense when he was living in the Dakota on Central Park West in Manhattan New York City – the most expensive building on the most expensive street in the most expensive city in the World – so it didn’t look like John Lennon was too keen about giving up his possessions same as Tommy Jefferson.

    It’s always the case that these open borders “Give us your huddled masses” immigration loons, traitors on the liberal Left or Libertarian Neo Conservative system right – always ALWAYS mouth off about supporting mass 3rd world immigration for the USA country, Europe in theory but work damn hard to make it impossible for these migrants to enter their wealthy enclaves as anything but low wage servants.

    Rob Reiner’s Malibu California has a large sign at the entrance to the City proudly announcing that Malibu is a “Sanctuary City” welcoming the undocumented – but unless these 3rd world undocumented migrants can afford to rent out Rob Reiner’s beachfront $10 million mansion, I doubt they will be staying in Malibu CA.

  17. @anonymous

    There is nothing wrong with team sports or TV per se, but it seems to me that when people of every sort are thrown together, they must communicate on a least-common-denominator level. Even among people of my (1950s) generation, often the only things we have in common are TV show theme songs and pop hits. There are pleasures that come in a stable culture when one can make reference to history, art or literature without effort. However interesting it might be to meet people from all over the world, it is ultimately frustrating to have to confine one’s speech to the most literal expressions and abstain from normal cultural alllusions. I think there is an overall destabilizing effect from immigration that helps in the infantilization of the populace.

  18. “It is also rabidly racist”

    CHAPTER 1. REFRAMING THE IMMIGRATION DEBATE

    In January 1979, China’s Vice-Premier Deng Xiaoping made a much-celebrated state
    visit to Washington. At one of the meetings with President Jimmy Carter, both leaders brought
    along briefing books to guide their discussions.

    President Carter eventually got to the section that dealt with human rights and began his standard lecture, stressing that China had to learn to respect human rights. Among the specific human rights that concerned the President was the right of Chinese nationals to emigrate. Like most Communist countries, China made it extremely difficult for its citizens to leave—presumably because, as a matter of ideology, no workers would ever want to leave a so-called worker’s paradise.

    “Mr. Vice-Premier,” the President said, “the Jackson-Vanik amendment prohibits our
    granting most-favored-nation status to centrally-managed economies, unless they provide
    freedom of departure for their own nationals.”

    Deng Xiaoping turned to his briefing book, leaned back in his chair, smiled, and asked,
    “Well, Mr. President, how many Chinese nationals do you want? Ten million? Twenty million? Thirty million?”

    Not surprisingly, that exchange marked the end of Jimmy Carter’s brief campaign to
    grant Chinese citizens the right to leave their country.

    Saw this article on Lew Rockwell today, No comments allowed on that site so I came to Unz to check the comments. Very glad that the folks here saw through the globalist talk of Napolitano.

    Open borders was OK during the Ellis island period when everyone coming was European. Not now. As far as to those unfilled farm and meat packing jobs, higher wages would attract whites.
    People of a certain ethnic group have been waiting for centuries to destroy the White race.

    Today there are no real white nationalist parties, the ones which are currently in existence are actually psych ops created by the tribe to discredit the white nationalist movement. The purpose was to get the general public to associate such groups with Neo-Nazis.

    So far their efforts have been largely successful. However within a few years it is highly probably that large scale White Nationalist political movements will founded.

    These movements will be started in the US as elsewhere in the Anglosphere and Europe hate speech laws will prevent such groups from being started.

    You said it. I have absolutely no respect for libertarians, anyway; they’re insincere. They like to talk about freedom and prosperity, but only to get the rubes on their side. In reality, they’re just social Darwinists who believe most people deserve to be poor and miserable. Most, if not all, of them harbor the fantasy that they’re part of the talented, chosen elite, even though most of them have never produced anything useful or expressed an original idea. They don’t actually care about your freedoms at all, and if every Republican in Congress were replaced by a libertarian, the social justice warriors would have everything they wanted inside of three months, all in exchange for a few minor concessions that only benefit the rich.

    They’re no less full of shit than the liberals themselves. And they know it, too. No one as smart as Napolitano honestly believes the kind of crap that he’s written in this article.

    If there isn’t an element of truth in that depiction then why does virtually everyone of color want to emigrate to the white West? Being avaricious, lazy and immoral does tend to create shithole nations whence they come and when there’s a preponderance of their DNA in the population our nations won’t be very nice places to live anymore.

    Judge nappy is trying to revise history and mischaracterize Jefferson as some sort of 18th century social justice warrior. While Jefferson wasn’t a rabid hater of non-whites he most definitely did not consider them equals of white Euorpeans nor did he support racially integrated societies. He no doubt would be steadfastly opposed to a caravan of Amerindians from central America and would likely use military force to repel them.

    What a kick in the teeth for lower income Americans and legal immigrants. Open borders will impoverish these people. Perhaps we could import a few million third world physicians. That would reduce the doctors’ bills. A few million imported lawyers would make the cost of legal services trivial. All these professionals would have to pick crops to feed their families.

    You say that the United States is a nation of immigrants – but so, without exception, is every other nation on the face of this planet! What sets the United States apart is that it has, relative to its developed resources and industrial capital, so few immigrants and descendants of immigrants.

    As far as separating children from their parents: such an outpouring of crocodile tears has not been seen since Captain Hook got his good hand on a can of mace. Every year something like 10 million American are arrested – and yes, if they have minor children they are very much separated. It turns out that illegal immigration is the ONLY crime that cannot be punished because that would mean separating (alleged) parents from their (alleged) children. Go figure.

    Libertarians are supposedly big champions of private property and nations are essentially just big pieces of private property. But judge nappy is saying that everyone in the third world has a “natural right” to pick up and move to another nation which we all know means a white nation with free healthcare via emergency rooms and generous welfare benefits.

    If private property owners can forbid people from coming onto their property and kicking them off then Americans have the right to prevent the rampaging horders of so called asylum seekers from entering this nation.

    And the judge repeatedly contradicts himself as when states and localities attempted to tackle the illegal immigration problem themselves by merely requiring proof of citizenship to engage in certain activities they were smacked down by federal judges who said the Cohenstitution only grants the power to make immigration law to the federal government. As I recall judge nappy celebrated the verdicts and said the rulings were spot on even though he claimed to sympathize with immigration restrictionists.

    But now he’s telling us the federal government has no power to make immigration law other than that pertaining to naturalization. His libertarianism and political opinions seems to be very situational depending on how he feels about current events. At least Ron Paul has remained pretty consistent on a range of issues.

  42. People who deliberately cross a border, especially in mass groups, without permission are not refugees, asylum seekers, or immigrants.They are invaders and invaders are entitled to no due process–they are essentially a military problem. The military can round them up and send them back using non-lethal methods, although I wonder whether a Napoleonic “whiff of grapeshot” might be in order.

    I, for one, am glad that Raspail’s brilliant and prophetic novel is being read in the White House. His insight that the apparent helpless of the invaders weaponizes them against us is a lesson that needs to be learned.

    If Nappytanto lived 200 yrs ago in Haiti he’d be among those of the 10% Whites, that agreed they just Had to allow the Other 90% of Low IQ, barely one step above a cannibal savage black, Haitians, the right to vote…Indeed, and what happened once that 90% low life, illiterate black underclass began to vote?

    Well thanks to dimwitted, lib do gooders like Nappyboy, those 90% blacks first voted to…Replace their All White rulership with fellow Black rulers!….Once they got rid of White officials and leaders and rulers…Next up, Those 90% Blacks again voted…This time the vote was to decide if it should Now be Okay and legal to…Mass Murder via butchery EVERY single Haitian White Man +Woman+Children and even White Babies!….Then as per typical whenever savage Blacks and Browns get in full control…They also Looted, Destroyed, and Burned down to ground, every thing they were unable to loot or destroy which was prior White Owned!

    Fast Fwd a couple Hundred Years to 2018….How has that Black/Brown Haitian rulership worked out?

    In 2018 todays world, Haiti has basically Remained, ever since the 10% Whites were mass murdered and all else destroyed and burned to ash, one of The entire worlds abject Worst shithole countries ever yet seen.

    And that’s the exact precise type nation America is headed for if idiot libertarians, which mainly are sold out to international Jewry and ZioJews like the Judge Nappy here, can convince enough European White Americans to go along with his and his pals promotion for packing the usa with as many non whiteys as desire to come live here.

    The vast majority of which Hate or almost hate White folk to the inth degree…They also Hate what this nation was founded on, and hate our White Founding Fathers. And whenever a group of them are seen on tv news, and they are asked “What about You folks Assimilating to American Ways, and speaking English”?…As soon as their main group spokesperson yells out…”We do Not Like You or Your American ways nor wish to speak in English! That’s why we shall Never assimilate!” The rest in the group go Wild with yells of agreement. No not All are like that, but enough of them, a vast majority sure are.

    But..They sure fuckin Love everything they use and own and enjoy on a daily 24/7 basis, Most of which Whites, especially White Men invented and built…That part they love and cannot get enough of. Maybe the Judge boy here needs Pack His personal Home full of as many low life third worlders as can tightly packed fit, eh.

    I’d also wager that if or more like When, such crazed nation wrecking agendas as mass immigration is, that He and his Ilk so love and promote, finally cause a Real, Live action, Race War or Revolt called whatever it happens to get called then….That it will be the Judge here along with too many to count White idiots like him, who will be First in line at Our Patriot camps begging Us for help, and especially armed protection from the crazy vast hoards of non whiteys he so desired we let enter in.

    I got a news flash for all such clown type fools…I for one am never ever at that point going to lend a hand, lift a finger, feed, house, nor Protect ANY of these total Traitors, period. They can go piss up a rope for all I care, and maybe they can try asking those non white nation wrecker race war mongers for help, eh…That’ll be the day!

    How is this statement:

    Thus, the failure of the government in the country of origin to protect basic natural rights or to enforce basic criminal laws — for example, permitting criminal gangs to rule — is a valid basis for asylum, whereas loss of a job is not.

    Not a contradiction of this statement:

    Yet people who want to work should be allowed in

    So are they fleeing oppression, or just looking for a job? And why do they deserve a job here, when it is difficult for those already here to find one? Doesn’t charity begin at home?

    And why are they burning American flags, and waving Honduran ones, while demanding entry? Sound more like an invasion than asylum. They don’t want to just work – they want to conquer.

    Natural law, by simple observation from anyone with an IQ over 75, clearly demonstrates that all are NOT created equal, in that everyone has the same level of intelligence, health, strength, attractiveness, financial means, industriousness, etc. And no one is entitled to such things equally simply because they are human beings. They are entitled to equal application of laws – a billionaire or super model who commits murder should get the same sentence as the meth-head street dweller who commits same, but the meth-head street dweller is not entitled to a photo shoot in Vogue or a penthouse on Fifth Ave.

    Therefore, a marching caravan of aliens has no more right to entry than someone sneaking across the Rio Grande in the middle of the night. And as for the criminal element – have you, yourself vetted each and every one of the caravaners? How do you know each one is a saint in the making? Are they all accountants, IT support and middle managers just looking for a better way of life? You know each one personally? How many are you going to invite to crash at your digs?

    You read Camp of the Saints, but you obviously do not understand it. Diversity/asylum/helping is great when it is done “over there” for people “over there” to improve their lives “over there.” When “diversity” is about to culturally enrich you up close and personal, it is a different thing all together. And when the “oppressed” are not asking for help, but demanding surrender of your country as of right and by force, it is not asylum – it is invasion.

    Judge Napolitano, you never mentioned the very backbone of true freedom: Private Property. Only that makes anyone free, prosperous, and equal.

    You only allow someone in your home by invitation. And when they misbehave, you show them the way out, and shut and lock the door after them.

    None of us has invited in these people in these “caravans.” They demonstrate they have no sense of proper behavior; they destroy the flag of our country and instead fly their own. They do not intend to be “well-behaved” in our house. We are under no obligation to allow them in.

    We are obligated to keep the door, thick, impenetrable metal, tightly shut and locked, to safeguard inside what is properly ours and not theirs.

    This is our property. Not theirs. We, the rightful owners, get to decide whether or not we want to share any of it. THAT is true libertarianism. The NAP stops where it is not reciprocated, and trespass, invasion, and burglary are clear violations of the NAP. If it isn’t equally for them as for us, we have the right of proportionate resistance and repulsion, even to the use of lethal force.

    Yeah, I was AMAZED by that one.

  63. Judge, just how many people can the lifeboat safely take on before it too sinks?

    Or, with a background in Law, are such considerations out of your area of expertise?

    When the Founders wrote the Constitution, the notion of the Social Contract was the ruling paradigm. Jefferson borrowed that and more from Locke. Citizens, having given up their right to use force to defend themselves from the predation of others are, in turn, entitled to absolute protection by their government. Governments are granted a monopoly on the use of power so as to protect the life, rights and property of its citizens. Failure to do so annuls the Social Contract. Betrayed, citizens are justified in overthrowing that government and creating a new one.

    Swamping the nation with unlimited scab labor undermines collective bargaining and results in low wages for many American workers. Immigration is not–contrary to what starry-eyed liberals would have us believe–a win/win game. Some gain at other’s expense. Mexican roofers displace white. Mexican cooks have displaced blacks from one of their traditional areas of employment. Immivasion causes real harm to real people, the people our government has a contract to defend. Mass immivasion dilutes the value of citizenship and imposes financial burdens on current citizens who must share their infrastructure and space with free-riding strangers.

    Not holding up its end of the bargain, government is subject to dismissal by the people, who have no obligation to obey the dictates of a government that has forsaken the social contract and refuses to protect the citizens rights and property.

    This is common knowledge. Why are you acting as though it were not applicable here and now? There is no mythical “Higher Law” that trumps the living contract between a government and its citizens because a government, ostensibly, exists only to represent its people. The moment it stops doing so–even if in the name of a higher good–it ceases to be the legitimate government.

    Rob Reiner’s Malibu California has a large sign at the entrance to the City proudly announcing that Malibu is a “Sanctuary City” welcoming the undocumented – but unless these 3rd world undocumented migrants can afford to rent out Rob Reiner’s beachfront $10 million mansion, I doubt they will be staying in Malibu CA.

    Recently I was in an old-money neighborhood of a major eastern U.S. city, an architectural wonderland of Victorian and Tudor-style houses. Next to a Romanesque revival church was a mansion with a lawn sign: “We welcome all people as our neighbors.” The English sentence was translated into Spanish (of course) and … wait for it … Arabic.

    Do the people living there believe that anyone is so dumb not to see through this display of phony humanitarianism? I’d be curious to know what their actual neighbors feel about it. But neither the occupants nor their real neighbors will ever have their we-are-the-world bona fides tested. Obviously, the million dollar digs next door are not going to be populated with five immigrant families, their kiddie mobs, their pit bulls, their cars and motorcycles. That’s for poor neighborhoods to deal with, out of sight, out of mind.

    I’m not sure of Steve Sailor’s take, but I think you are missing the real idiocy of your blockquote.

    most of the work that immigrants will do is work most Americans eschew.

    America is a “market economy” or at least the Wall Street Journal keeps telling people. If the crops in the field jobs – the ones that “most Americans eschew” were paying $30 an hour, employers would be beating off applicants with a club. The reality is that immigration is the reserve army of capital, which is used to destroy the real market.

    As for nativism being bad, Trump blew off Napolitano when he stated that he was elected to President of the US, not the world. To put foreigners ahead Americans would be a dereliction of duty.

  68. WOW. It took a lot of time to sort my thoughts and seperate the wheat from the chafe.

    Judge, you are no-longer doing good; the honorable thing would have been to have quit public life entirely with these four words: “It’s too evil now.”

    To those bashing libertarians over this issue I would like to say: Napolitano doesn’t speak for all libertarians, or all Libertarians either. There is a battle underway for the soul of the Libertarian (big-L) Party – i.e. whether it will be dominated by the globalist agenda or not.

    But libertarianism in the larger sense is a personal journey into questioning your own basic assumptions about what government is, and what the proper role of it is in our society.

    The open/closed borders issue will be a divisive one in any group or society that hasn’t been completely razed clean of indepedentent thought by the scythe of Political Correctness. Don’t give any group up that hasn’t been completely occupied.

    These are some extraordinarily ignorant and lawless opinions for a former judge.

    To begin with, the constitutional right of Americans to travel within their own country has nothing to do with foreigners attempting to illegally enter the United States. Trying to conflate the two is just plain stupid. Sorry judge.

    Second, having a high crime rate in your home country is absolutely NOT a legitimate ground for claiming political asylum due to a “well founded fear of persecution.”

    Third, if escaping Honduras was the goal, the caravan has accomplished this already. But they aren’t satisfied with the wages and welfare benefits in Mexico so they just keep going. Even if they were legitimate political refugees to begin with, they aren’t anymore. And the U.S. has no legal or moral obligation to grant them political asylum when they are crossing over from Mexico.

    If Napalotano’s absurd legal interpretation were correct, all 7 billion people on the face of the earth would have free entry to the U.S. merely by claiming their country of origin really sucks.

    Read Hans-Hermann Hoppe. He’ll show you the proper libertarian position: illegal immigration is trespassing. Likewise, Ron Paul advocates abolishing “birthright” citizenship and condemns welfare for migrants. Just as with conservatives, libertarians have a beltway version exemplified by the nefarious Koch brothers and you’re right, they espouse freedom only for the rich. Real libertarians like those writing for Lew Rockwell are as repulsed by SJW’s as are true conservatives. Consider the fact that Walter Block supported Trump in 2016 and that Thomas Dilorenzo writes books condemning the Progressive icon Lincoln.

    In that distant past when immigrants you identify as our ancestors came here, they weren’t coming to a welfare socialism to suck up America’s resources and gloat about it. People had to work to earn a living, or else.

    Maybe these 7,000 are all coming to work, but probably not. Either way, let them go through the same process as anybody else who wants in, and from a respectful distance, not after they’ve put the first foot in to get a 6 month stay pending a hearing. A showboat parade of “immigrants” doesn’t arouse my sympathy one bit, but then I don’t like being bullied.

    Let them try barging into another country, say Israel. Will you and the MSM bemoan what the border patrol snipers do then, or do you reserve that indignation for your home country where too few people are saying, “enough”? Try pushing your way into Hong Kong or China, where I live, to see how welcome you are to a job there. There are some serious restrictions. You’re welcome to stay a while as a tourist, provided you have money in reserve, and then it’s adios. There’s no guilt, only rules, and certainly no PC. It’s business, the way it should be with the USA, especially my home state of fruity, nutty California.

    Also, where in the Constitution or anywhere else does it say all people have a right to travel wherever they please? “Life, liberty and pursuit of property … er, happiness?” You can stretch that into a God given right enter the USA? The Constitution grants the right to interstate travel to its citizens, not to anybody anywhere. Did I misread your words in my displeasure?

    Although I do think that libertarianism in any form is at least a harmful distraction (given our current situation), the anarcho-capitalists writing for Lew Rockwell aren’t typical, and I don’t lump them in with more mainstream libertarians.

    However, libertarians of all stripes tend to back down in the face of SJW opposition, and the Rockwell gang is no exception. They too “cucked” for a few years and got their spines back only after conservatives took the initiative to push back against the left. The purging of Bob Wallace is a perfect example of their cowardice in action. It’s plain as day that they care a lot more about what respectable people think of them than they care about their own principles. In short, they can’t be relied upon. This is just one of several reasons that I think Libertarians (big “L”) in Congress, irrespective of ideological flavor, would immediately cave in to the Democrats for very little – and maybe nothing – in return. I would also remind you that Lewrockwell.com ran this very article, and I doubt they did it to demonstrate just what a clown Napolitano is.

    Yes, during the 2008 presidential primary season, the “racist newsletters” became an issue. At the time, I argued (1) they were not racist screeds, but, rather, they were recitation of the facts and (2) so what. In my view, Rothbard, Rockwell, and RP were right to direct our attention to the propensity of black folk to make babies out of wedlock, to perpetrate crimes of inter-racial violence at rates many times that of whites, and to underachieve intellectually.

    I engaged a plethora of left and thick libertarians on the issue of the newsletters. I contended that they were a pimple on the penis of a protozoa, that they had no relevance to RP’s campaign and his vision of smashing neo-conservatism, empire, and leviathan. I clashed with those libertarians who thought that racism was the sin qua non of the liberty movement.

    Nevertheless, I am reminded that Lew and Ron refused to own that which they wrote. So, Stealth, their denial of the authorship of those newsletters does constitute a form of cucking.

    However, I would beseech thee to look at Lew and Ron from a holistic perspective – examine what they have said and written in the last ten years. In addition, I would urge you to look at LewRockwell.com in its entirety. I note that the criticism in the V-Dare article was not directed at Hoppe or any of the other writers I listed above, other than Lew.

    Yesterday, at the website, a piece penned by Ira Katz was posted. Its title? The Need for Borders.

    The weekend posts included an essay by Angelo Codevilla in which he deconstructs the mindset of progressivism and a column from Philip Giraldi on news manipulation by the MSM.

    There are paleo-libertarians, like myself, who have become race-realists and who do not want our culture to be trashed by third world analphabets.

    I scratched LRC from my daily reading list over a year ago. Its stable of consistently published writers, compared to those here at The Unz Review, were weak and dogmatic. And as long as the inevitable degradation of the comments (cf., Taki’s and ZeroHedge) can be staved off, the interaction here makes LRC seem even more of an echo chamber. There are some racebaiting lightweights (Derbyshire, Weissberg), phonies (Napolitano), and Beltway fixtures (Buchanan, Kirkpatrick) at TUR, but at least they can be called out.

    Oversimplified, but:

    LRC = preaching
    TUR = teaching

    It appears that even Napolitano cannot escape identity politics, like others on the left he wants to play the Italian Victim card . The central theme doesn’t change the hoards yet to arrive here are more important than the people already here . He does not like America first and I consider him a traitor

    What about the likes of the following:

    Tom Woods
    Eric Peters
    Hans Hoppe
    William Norman Grigg (now deceased)
    Bionic Mosquito

  90. Just noticed that Lew Rockwell posted his support for Gab. Its there for all of the progressive twitterverse to see. A manly, uncucky thing to do.

    Note the difference between Lew and Vox Day.

    Yes, they were among the best. I would like to see their work here at TUR.

    OK, I just went back for a look. I was reminded of another annoyance: “Read the rest of the article” that requires a reader to hop to a different website, sometimes one peddling investment advice or some such. The ads, although not nearly as bad as Taki’s, are further evidence that LRC is operated to generate income with relatively little effort on the part of the publisher.

    I do respect your good faith efforts to help people figure things out through non-Establishment publications.

    Hey Anon – another great comment. It’s laughable that he cites The WSJ because they are all about open borders and could care less about Americans.

    Too bad Napolitano is not replaced by an illegal hot babe Russian on FoxNews because that’s what he deserves. He is a disgusting, vile, reprehensible, anti-American thug who wore a judge’s robe.

    Like the fictional French president, President Donald Trump has made unsubstantiated allegations that bad people are in the midst of the caravan.

    Is Napolitano kidding? Planning to break and enter into the USA illegally makes every single one of them a bad person by definition. Also, did he see the rioting against the Mexican police?!? They are not good and that is not normal. They should not be allowed to apply for asylum.

    Well, thanks!

    By the way, isn’t there typically another article from Mr. Napolitano by Thursday morning? Maybe he’s seen that gold box upthread …

    Dear Mr. Napolitano,
    I understand that you are an open borders absolutist – fiat iustitia, pereat mundus. But why do you undermine your own position by downplaying the relevance of the question, telling us that our choice is in any case unimport, as such caravans can’t do anything harmful to the innates?

    As any dogmatic libertarian you ought to follow your way to the end and become a Social Darwinist, telling us: In a really free society the stronger wins anyway, and if the caravan members are stronger then they (like the capitalist billionaires) deserve to win. That would at least be a comprehensible and consistent position.

    That comment was brilliant and definitely deserves a gold box!
