Immigration patriots are fighting back against Donald Trump’s dalliance with a DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] Amnesty, and there’s evidence they’re having the predicted impact. But in the furor, the H-1B “temporary” worker program has been pushed to the background. Patriots need to keep their eyes on this program as well. Most VDARE.com readers... Read More

One usually doesn’t think of fashion models as skilled workers. President Donald Trump, married to a former fashion model, would beg to differ. And a good test of his commitment to patriotic immigration reform will be his willingness to persuade Congress to repeal legislation enabling foreign models to work here. That law is a part...

Here’s something I did enjoy watching—as opposed to the Clinton/ Trump debate.It’s intelligent, instructive, and thought-provoking, and so the opposite of retail politics. It was balm on my wounded psyche, 84 minutes of sunlit good sense after a raging storm of gibberish—a panel held at the National Press Club (boo!) last week: Immigration and Less-Educated...

The Answer: End Muslim Immigration. (Ask Trump)
Another day, another Muslim massacre. When Radio Derb went to tape, the week’s big story was the terrorist attack on Istanbul airport on Tuesday—three terrorists, Muslim of course, who all died in the attack, a further 45-odd innocents dead. But then on Friday there was the Dhaka, Bangladesh attack (28 dead). And on Saturday, another... Read More
Just a few after-thoughts. (1) In distilling an article to post (2,800 words) out of the weekly podcast (6,400 words), we truncated my coverage of Brexit cynicism, which now looks more relevant each passing hour. Here’s what I said in full on the podcast: Last in the negativities, but by no means least probable, there... Read More
Yet Another Reason To SHUT IMMIGRATION DOWN!
The best book written in recent years about our immigration system has been Michelle Malkin and John Miano’s very well-researched 2015 publicationSold Out: How High-Tech Billionaires & Bipartisan Beltway Crapweasels Are Screwing America’s Best & Brightest Workers. If you’ve read that book—and even if, like me, you are still unsure what species and genus the... Read More

We who seek to promote rational immigration policy have set out on a road both long and hard. Arrayed against us is the mighty political-commercial power ofcrony capitalism which has, in the post-industrial West, filled the vacuum left by the collapse of socialist ideology. The culture of our age is also against us. In North... Read More
What, Actually, Is Forcing Americans From Their Homes?
Conservatism Inc. thinks it finally has found Donald Trump’s Achilles heel: his failure to adhere to libertarian legal wonk orthodoxy—Trump supports the use ofeminent domain for economic development. But this is simply yet more evidence that Conservatism Inc. is out of touch with the GOP base—and with reality. As The Atlantic put it: “The trouble... Read More
You know a topic has attained the level of Mainstream Concern when it gets a cover story at The Economist magazine. The last (January 18th) issue of that magazine features as first leader a 1,300-word warning about imminent technological changesdestroying great swathes of the market for human labor, in particular the office-worker sector of that...

If it's a tsunami you're afraid of, what happened in the Indian Ocean last month is probably not what you should be worrying about. The tsunami Americans need to fear is the man-made wave of globalization that has helped gut the American work force by exporting its jobs overseas in part through the cute little... Read More
After some 30 years or so, the Washington Post finally sent a reporter to the movies to discover the astounding news that Hollywood doesn't like corporations. The occasion for this revelation is the re-make of the 1962 thriller The Manchurian Candidate, a film I have never cared for and the new version of which I... Read More
The good news, as reported across front pages last week, is that some 250,000 new jobs were created in the American economy in the last month. The bad news, at least for those who hold the jobs or would like to, is that they may soon go overseas. The June issue of American Demographics explains... Read More
If you ever get into an argument about immigration, sooner or later (probably sooner) somebody will majestically inform you, "But immigrants take jobs that Americans won't do. Without immigrants, lettuce would cost 10 dollars a head." Sometimes the lettuce will cost 20 dollars a head, but the point—and absence of facts—is still the same: Immigration... Read More
If even Harvard professors can figure out what mass immigration is doing to America, can Big Business be far behind? The Washington Postthis week ran an insipid satire ["Hey Professor, Assimilate This!"Letters responding] on Harvard scholar Samuel Huntington's forthcoming book on the cultural dangers of mass immigration, but ironically Business Week treats it a bit...

As a belated Christmas gift to the country, President Bush this week unveiled what amounts to an amnesty program for illegal aliens—an amnesty I have been predicting his administration would endorse as soon as the smoke from the 9/11 attacks of 2001 cleared a bit.Amnesty was already on the table when the attacks occurred and...

With the state of California at the edge of financial—and perhaps political—chaos, the truth about the real meaning of uncontrolled immigration is finally seeping into the state's major newspapers. Last week in the Los Angeles Times Magazine, Fred Dickey unleashed a 5,000-word feature on the impact of illegal immigration on the state's legal—and lower-income—workers. In... Read More
Not the least of the problems that mass immigration inflicts on the Americans whose nation the immigrants are colonizing is how it affects the creaking Social Security system. The Open Borders lobby holds that immigration will save the system - a claim peddled by the Wall Street Journal and various professional Open Borders activists. But,... Read More
Back in 1993, when the propaganda campaign for passage of theNorth American Free Trade Agreement was swinging, there were three main reasons offered as to why NAFTA should pass. It would help reduce illegal immigration from Mexico; it would help modernize the Mexican economy, and it would help Americans by removing trade barriers. Not one... Read More
"Free trade" and its partner, "globalization," are the happy thoughts of the day, with few in either party of any ideological persuasion expressing disagreement. But there are reasons to disagree with the direction in which the words point. Last week an article in the New York Times reminded us of some of them. So dependent... Read More
