From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:

Coming to America

ISSUE OF THE CENTURY
Steve Sailer

September 22, 2021

The sudden crossing of the Rio Grande river at Del Rio, Texas, by 15,000 Haitians is a reminder that the most prophetic novel of the last half century was the late Jean Raspail’s 1973 book The Camp of the Saints about a million third-worlders landing on the beaches of France, and whites being unable to summon the will to be so racist as to turn them away.

Do American leaders still believe that they have the moral right to protect the territory of the American people by force? Or will we unilaterally disarm in the Scramble for America?

Few recent incidents better sum up elites’ lack of spine than this Reuters headline on Monday evening:

White House condemns border guard use of whip-like cord against Haitian migrants

Of course, the bridle reins held by the mounted patrolman weren’t actually a whip, as the press initially reported, but, still…they were whip-like….

The Washington Post made its top-center headline on Monday:

Homeland security officials will investigate after images show agents on horseback grabbing migrants, Mayorkas says

How dare law enforcement try to grab migrants! Don’t they know migrants are who we are (except that they are also better than us)?

Read the whole thing there.

    Gresham was not the first to state the law which took his name. The phenomenon had been noted by Aristophanes in his play The Frogs, which dates from around the end of the 5th century BC. The referenced passage from The Frogs is as follows (usually dated at 405 BC):

    It has often struck our notice that the course our city runs
    Is the same towards men and money. She has true and worthy sons:
    She has good and ancient silver, she has good and recent gold.
    These are coins untouched with alloys; everywhere their fame is told;
    Not all Hellas holds their equal, not all Barbary far and near.
    Gold or silver, each well minted, tested each and ringing clear.
    Yet, we never use them! Others always pass from hand to hand.
    Sorry brass just struck last week and branded with a wretched brand.
    So with men we know for upright, blameless lives and noble names.
    Trained in music and palaestra, freemen’s choirs and freemen’s games,
    These we spurn for men of brass…”

    I was going to make the following an Off Topic comment but since this new post is about the mess in Del Rio, it actually belongs here.

    According to this PA local news site, on Monday the Biden administration ordered an understaffed federal prison in rural PA to send 8 employees and 2 buses down to Del Rio, TX. This is over 1,500 miles. What are they expecting to happen that they think 2 buses and a handful of employees from all the way up in PA is necessary?

    “Kline [The prison guards’ union guy] shared concern for the outcome of the border situation in Texas, noting that “[USP Lewisburg] Our staff are trained to transport inmates in handcuffs and leg irons; this border crisis is not being handled as the BOP trains. Staff could easily be overpowered, hurt, and the bus used as a means of escape.”

    Prisoners did escape from a bus down there so his concerns are justified. Maybe they will bring their handcuffs and leg irons.

    Keep ’em coming. America is collapsing/disintegrating before our very eyes. Acceleration. 50-60% now understand that we have a post-modern economy . We now have post-modern policing and justice (Justine Diamond’s Somali killer had his murder conviction struck down, Lefty rioters have largely been left alone while Jan 6 capitol tourists rot in jail).

    50-60% now fully understand that the media is beyond a farce by now (the manifest and deep crises of the Biden admin are mostly covered as prosaically as possible, while every thing Trump said and did was scrutinized breathlessly).

    The Dems made utterly moronic comments about Georgia voting security measures being “racist”. Any attempt to prevent fraud is called “suppression” even when it parallels the voting procedures of Western European countries who due to a historical lack of diversity have been able to avoid screwing up elections due to a lack of allegations of racism enabling the kind of fraud rampant in America (back in the early 80’s the GOP signed a mutual agreement with the Dems that oversight of urban precincts would be minimized to avoid the appearance of GOP officials being too hard on minority dominant districts).

    Black worship is out of control, even as most whites instinctively wish to avoid blacks who give off even the faintest scent of underclass pathology, now more than ever what with society not applying the brakes anymore.

    The Texas border region shifted toward Trump already in 2020, how do you suppose they’ll vote in 2024?

    We all know how easy it is – especially for Washington Post reporters – to tell exactly what is going on in a scene based on a single photograph. Just ask Nicholas Sandmann.

    Anyway….

    Haiti has 11.4 million people, and a per capita income of less than \$2,000. Afghanistan has 33 million people, and a per capita income of less than \$500. Just to cite two countries recently in the news that the US supposedly has an obligation to admit immigrants from. If you offered every Haitian and Afghan an airplane ticket and a visa how many would come to the US?

    Probably 95% of all Haitians. Afghan immigration would probably be slower, owing to the small Afghan community currently here, but eventually you’d probably get 80-90% of them, as well.

    That’s 35-40 million people – about as many people as live in California – from two countries which, in the grand scheme of things, really aren’t all that big. Central America – another major source of illegal immigrants – has 47 million people; Latin America has 642 million; Nigeria has 211 million people; Sub-Saharan Africa has 1,040 million people; India and China have 1.4 billion each.

    It’s a big damn world, and there are a lot of people in countries poorer than the US who would love to come here.

    Few recent incidents better sum up elites’ lack of spine than this Reuters headline on Monday evening:

    I don’t think it’s a lack of spine – at least on the part of the leftists. They’re welcoming mass third world migration into the West, and they know that from time to time they have to pretend that there are laws and whatnot. It’s just fake passive resistance – the pettifogged exceptions to the law have swallowed it whole. Both the migrants and the left intelligentsia know that the asylum claims are nonsense, but that once they cross into the nation’s interior they will never, ever, ever go back. Once released, the majority won’t even pursue asylum claims through to disposition; of those who do, none whose asylum claims have been denied and ordered removed will actually comply with the order. They’ll most likely just disappear into the wallpaper in our many “sanctuary cities” where the municipal government will actively interfere with even the feeble efforts of Federal immigration enforcement in the unlikely event that even a Republican President actually attempts to enforce U.S. immigration law.

    I’d think Mexico has an interest in keeping the US from sliding too far into shithole status, since a sizable chunk of our population are Mexicans here for the good life. Too many people will ruin the party, but maybe the thrill of seeing rocks smash nice glass windows overcomes concern for the future. So a chunk of Mexico is happy to deliver the rocks north to the windows of the US.

  20. This is one of your best and most important Taki columns, immigration being the EXISTENTIAL issue. If we don’t handle this, it doesn’t matter what else we do right, if even possible. It won’t be our country anyway.

    I read Camp of the Saints about 5 years back. That was extremely prophetic of Mr. Raspail, considering he wrote in 48 years ago! I guess France must have already had a few Algerians or what-have-you trickling in. From just a few years of it by that point, the author really understood the attitude of worship of the others that the cultural revolutionist of the time had. He could see how the higher ups of society were already so afraid of being called names and being seen as the oppressive Whitey that’d they’d give up their lands before doing the right thing.

    Let me write one thing about the Mexicans letting these people pass through. I wrote this quickly before, but I’ll repeat it: One thing President Trump was very good at was dealing with the Latin American leaders, whether via economic threats or just man-to-man cajoling or interaction. Of course, he WANTED this done. You all don’t seriously think Biden/Kameltoe and those who run them were even trying, do you?

  23. A huge number of Haitians left the island of Hispaniola after the earthquake of 2010 which killed 200,000 people in Haiti.

    Many went to Brazil and other countries in South America. There was a huge demand for labor in Brazil in advance of the World Cup and the Olympic Games, when there was a lot of stadium construction going on, but after these events were over, a lot of unemployment ensued.

    Then you had the Covid-19 epidemic, which Steve’s article does not mention at all, but which further reduced employment opportunities.

    Haitians have been moving North for some years now, and with the TPS status of Haitians, they were accepted into the US if they arrived overland, although they could not just jump on a plane at the Toussaint L’Ouverture airport in Port au Prince unless they had a Visa.

    Until recently Haitians had mostly been showing up in Tijuana and many of them taking out residence in San Diego, or joining family members in other parts of the US.

    It is not as hard as you might think to travel overland from South America to the US, as buses are extremely cheap in South America and Central America.

    Many Haitians are probably homesick, and if the United States is advertising that it will provide free flights back to Haiti, plus some cash in hand, it is no wonder that there are so many takers!

    They Haiti situation does not necessarily mean that the same thing will happen with emigrants from Africa.

    At the present time people from Haiti are allowed to fly to some countries in South America without visas, which is a loophole that they have exploited.

    Considering that the United States until very recently had a President who became famous through a book called The Art of the Deal and who was supposed to be putting his talents at the disposal of the American people, the United States seems to have done an exceptionally poor job in international diplomacy and not finding ways to negotiate a way of plugging these loopholes to visa-free immigration.

    Consider that US citizens are not allowed to board a plane to the nearby Dominican Republic unless they have a return ticket. And yet according to Steve there is no way to stop mass migration from Africa to South America?

    Obviously the solution is to seek accords with the countries of Central and South America and with the airlines that prevent people in Africa from getting on planes unless they have visas and evidence of ongoing financial support.

    Monroe must be turning in his grave.

    “Haitians have been moving North for some years now, and with the TPS status of Haitians, they were accepted into the US if they arrived overland…”

    One thing I haven’t seen mentioned much – at all, actually – is that the USA last May just extended “Temporary Protected Status” to Haitians living here illegally because of the earthquake. There are about 100,000 Haitians still on TPS from the last earthquake, back in 2010. We have never revoked that status and asked them to finally go home.

    That TPS extension was 3-4 months ago – which is just about the right amount of time for Haitians living in Chile and Brazil to gather up there things, save up some money, and arrange transit to the United States.

    It was the TPS extension that incited this, combined with all of Biden’s other lax efforts to secure the border.

    The good news is that “racism” is a part of all this, but not in the way the media would like to advertise. We are suddenly starting to see even Democratic politicians in Texas, many of them Hispanic, demand that the border be secured. Even they are starting to realize how insane and unsustainable our border policies are, and can now disassociate border security from perceived ethnic self-interest

    I suspect more than a few Democrats, and not just in Texas, are quietly relieved that the Senate Parliamentarian ruled against including amnesty in the spending bill. For a long time Democrats have been unified on mass immigration – 100% in favor of it – while the Republicans were divided. The future may be a mostly united Republican Party and a divided Democratic one.

    It very hard to believe any country in the Western Hemisphere wouldn’t offer any Haitian living in it a free flight and a little cash to return to Haiti. It should include a ban on ever returning to the country they entered. Brazil certainly has the ability to take care of this directly without shuttling them up to the U.S. Mexican border.

    Don’t forget the Darien gap. Perhaps an underrated reason for the US once having control of the Canal Zone?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan-American_Highway

    However, because of the Darién Gap, it is not possible to cross between South America and Central America with conventional highway vehicles. Without an all-terrain vehicle, the only way to safely navigate this stretch is by sea.

    So of course the news was full of this last week.
    https://nypost.com/2021/09/17/migrants-risk-lives-crossing-s-america-darien-gap-on-trek-to-us/

    Immigration officials in Panama have reported record numbers of migrants crossing the Darien Gap, saying at least 70,000 people have made the trek in 2021. To curb the growing numbers, Colombia and Panama agreed to limit the number of people crossing through the jungle each day. The limit however has created a bottleneck for immigrants looking to get to the jungle from Colombia in the first place.

    There is some semi-good news.

    In South America, there were two countries that allowed Haitians to enter without visas: Ecuador and Suriname. But they no longer do.
    In fact, Ecuador ended visa-free travel for Haitians this year.

    But there still are Haitians all over South America, even as far as Chile.

    China mainly does two things in Africa.

    1. Operate mining companies. Even this tends to be exaggerated because operating mines in Africa is hard (mines need a lot of electricity). China’s most valuable mining operations are in cobalt extraction in the Congo, operations that have an oversized effect in powering the rise of electric vehicles.
    2. Providing loans to African governments to pay for construction projects done by Chinese construction companies especially in roads and power.

    This hardly amounts to colonization and China would be doing the same in Haiti if they had diplomatic relations (Haiti recognizes Taiwan and receives aid from Taiwan).

    On the North coast of Hispaniola there is a bordertown called Dajabon, between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, where the two countries are divided by the Massacre River.

    On certain days of the week the footbridge is open so that Haitians can transact in the marketplace in Dajabon and can actually cross without showing passports. (However they are not allowed to board buses without ID and visas.)

    However if you want to cross the border at a time when the bridge is closed, there is an alternative.

    You pay about 30 dollars and a motorbike takes you upriver to a crossing point where you are rowed across the river, and then another motorbike takes you down a dirt track, joins the road, and voila, you have made the crossing. I have done this myself.

    Haitians are used to these kind of things. The informal crossing I have described is an established business.

    It is supposed to be dangerous to cross the Darien Gap, because it is infested with criminal gangs and corrupt cops, and there is no proper road, but supposing–just supposing–that the trafficking of migrants across the gap was controlled by criminal gangs and corrupt cops who arranged for Haitian backpackers to have safe passage in exchange for a sum of money using all terrain vehicles, or just going around in boats.

    That would be a pretty good way for criminal gangs and corrupt cops to earn a living! Running a travel agency. There is probably an Android app for it.

    When William Buckley reviewed Camp of the Saints, he said: “Will you shoot them? Will you starve them?” Of course, the questions are rhetorical. To ask them is to answer them; shooting and starving are off the table. Therefore, when the essay asks about “spine,” spine = wall. Trump was correct, as usual. There exists no other definition of the general term “spine” other than “wall.” Invading ships and planes will present a problem, later on.

    Only a military can protect against invasion.

    Oddly enough, the US only defended itself when it had a Department of War. Since that was renamed Department of Defense, it has only been capable of waging offensive war everywhere else on the planet, perhaps mounting a defensive capability in DC, but certainly not at is borders.

    As for Haiti, among the most startling images of geography and human effects were a few aerial and satellite photos of the Haiti-Dominican Republic border.

    I would recommend that anyone who has not seen such photos to seeking them, and viewing.

    No wonder that the Dominican is keen to exclude their Haitian neighbours.

    I would be sure that they have other reasons besides the Haitians destroying their Haitian home, crime, etc., but at least they are not caving and saying ‘Welcome Haitians’.

    Texas State Guard
    The Texas State Guard, along with the Texas Army National Guard and Texas Air National Guard, is one of the three military branches comprising the Texas Military Department.

    The ruling class of the Republican Party — donors and politician whores and apparatchiks — is directly responsible for flooding the USA with Haitians and foreigners and mass legal immigration and mass illegal immigration and REFUGEE OVERLOAD and ASYLUM SEEKER INUNDATION.

    Trump the baby boomer treasonite is still screaming about flooding the USA with mass legal immigration “in the largest numbers ever.”

    Trump refused to deport the upwards of 30 million illegal alien invaders in the USA.

    Republican Party governors such as Abbott in Texas and Sununu in New Hampshire are pushing nation-wrecking mass legal immigration and they both push mass illegal immigration and Sununu is an open borders extremist from the Bush Organized Crime Syndicate and George W Bush is notorious for supporting mass legal immigration and mass illegal immigration.

    Eisenhower used armed troops to dissuade segregationists from getting in the way of integration. What’s to stop Abbot from using public and perhaps even private forces to establish armed checkpoints and fortified defenses along the border? What would Biden do? Order the Feds to arrest “renegade” or “illegal” border defenders (or perhaps arrest those commanding them, like Abbot himself)? That could incite major tension and possibly outright conflict between the feds and a restive “outlaw” state government. But a do-nothing Abbot could be tossed out by frustrated voters and replaced by a bigger ass kicker.

    I think the ones coming up from South America may have put some money aside. Some of the people from Central America have small farms that they mortgage or sell land from to finance their or their first kid coming here’s journey. There are also loans that people take out

    But yes, a lot of the money is coming right from the US. As I wrote here recently, I realized some time ago that the more immigrants we get, the more we get. The more friends and family who are here already, the more money to finance trips, places to stay and job connections for the people who want to come have available.

    There is definitely a vicious cycle established that grows bigger and bigger.

    Now CBS News is reporting about deported people who tried to rush back on the plane at Port a Prince in Haiti. Also a lot of them are being let go into the country with court dates. They just mentioned a plan to use Guantanamo and looking for guards who speak Haitian Creole. Using Guantanamo, sending in buses from prisons 1,500 away: All these people are putting tremendous pressure on various systems.

    I think things will get worse before they get better. If I were overseas and wanted to come, I definitely would want to get in before the door shuts. The government’s mixed messages would make me ignore the Nos and just rush to get here.

  71. @AnotherDad

    Have you calculated how many Haitians would have to be killed before they would stop presenting themselves at the border?

    This really requires a risk-benefit analysis. It would seem that if you could kill a thousand people now, it would be worthwhile and would save the lives of thousands of people in the future.

    However Chief Justice Roger Taney of the Supreme Court of the United States had a brilliant idea that would solve the problem of slavery for a generation. He would just rule that people of African descent were not US citizens, and so could be treated like animals. Problem solved. Or was it?

    As I’ve said before, I think we would have much more realistic immigration policies if the United States government were actually obliged to balance the budget. In such a situation we would actually recognize the real cost of admitting massive numbers of people with lower levels of human capital than the current population. Instead we’ve just printed or “borrowed” (haha) something like \$17 trillion in just the last 13 years.

    The reaction of Grman chancellor Angela Merkel to the 2015 immigration crisis had the same root: Chancellor Merkel did explicitly say, she did not want to see the desperate scenes s on TV (“die Fernsehbilder”) that would have been caused by the forclosure of our borders. – Pictures (=emotions, feelings) trump reasons – exactly the same thing as in the WaPo quote in Steve’s article.

    The optical mediums are what hold modern western societies together – and what makes them more and more useless with regard to reasoning (defenseless in the face of misleading/shallow) reasoning). – The George Floyd case being in my eyes exactly that: Pictures – scenes even – a superficial kind of been there and saw it myself impression – – -. Then these technically induced illusions trump over reasoning (details of the autopsy, the fentanyl-overdose – all that was before… (George Floyd’s criminal career…) – wiped out by the illusion of having seen the scene = having been there in person = knowing what’s up & what what’s up is all about.

    One thing not talked about enough is how trillions of dollars of “Washington Consensus” aid has been going for years, for decades, to various shithole countries – and the countries are not getting better very quickly.

    The Haitians who left Haiti are better than average Haitians – but they shouldn’t be allowed into the USA in unlimited numbers.

    The failure of gov’t aid is making the elite, often the same corrupt elite who get the most cash from the non-functioning aid, it makes them guilty, and makes them support more immigration of poor natives fleeing the corrupt countries.

    I feel sorry for them. Had I been born in Haiti, I might well have left for Chile, and now for the US. But it’s better for the US to deport more of them, more quickly.
