Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com

Cover story in last Sunday’s Long Island Newsday: in Trump Era, LI Immigrants Cope With Tougher ICE Actions, “Climate Of Fear”, June 7, 2019, by Will Van Sant [Email him] and Víctor Manuel Ramos. [Email him]

That headline raised my hackles right away. I am an LI [Long Island] immigrant, married to another Long Island immigrant. We’re supposed to be “coping” with something that ICE is doing? Living in a “climate of fear”?

The Derbs have no interactions with ICE at all, and our fears are in the standard late-middle-aged suburban homeowner range: crabgrass, tax audits, atrial fibrillation.

But of course the headline is CultMarx double-speak. The word “immigrant” is code for what our federal statutes refer to as an “illegal alien.”

As I keep wearily pointing out, not only is an illegal alien not an immigrant, he is positively a non-immigrant. So are most legal aliens. Before I got my green card in 1994 I entered the U.S.A. on permits stamped into my passport with the plain words NONIMMIGRANT VISA.

An immigrant is a foreigner who has been accepted by the authorities for indefinite settlement in the U.S.

All other aliens, surely including illegal ones, are non-immigrants.

So we are in the bizarro world of CultMarx polemics, where words are used in the opposite of their correct meaning—War Is Peace, Freedom Is Slavery, and Non-immigrants are Immigrants. Got it.

So what’s this 4300-word story, around four times the length of a major broadsheet newspaper op-ed, about?

Opening quote:

Fearing deportation, a Guatemalan cleaning woman in the country illegally has taught her children to go quiet when they hear a knock on the door at their Hempstead apartment. Under a policy enacted by President Donald Trump, federal agents looking for immigrants wanted for serious crimes could arrest and deport her, too.

More doublespeak there. The phrase, “Under a policy enacted by President Donald Trump” should actually read: “Under laws passed by Congress duly elected and assembled, according to the Constitution.”

But, needless to say, you won’t get two sentences into a piece of CultMarx propaganda nowadays without encountering the President’s name in some negative context.

The story continues in much the same vein for all 4300 of its words. You don’t have to have a heart of stone to find its efforts at tear-jerking strained and unconvincing:

Many legal immigrants are afraid to register for benefits they are entitled to such as food stamps and health insurance because they live in households that include those without legal status …

About 55—or 10 percent—of the students at Suffolk County Community College who are in the country without authorization forgo in-county financial aid, according to Associate Dean Patty Munsch. [Email her] Under state law they must sign a notarized affidavit promising to seek legal status if possible, in effect outing themselves.

Why are legal immigrants entitled to food stamps? Put it another way, why are we admitting for permanent settlement people who can’t support themselves?

We never used to. For an immigrant visa—permission to settle indefinitely in the U.S.A.—you used to have to show you could support yourself and your dependants, and provide the name of a citizen guarantor to back you up. What was wrong with that arrangement?

Likewise, if ten percent of the illegal aliens at our Community College are forgoing financial aid, ninety percent aren’t. Shouldn’t college financial aid be for Americans?

Browsing Newsday at the town library through the week—I refuse to pay money for the lying rag—I’ve been gratified to see that the “Letters” columns contain some scathing critiques of that story. A great many of my neighbors here in Suffolk County are glad to know that the people’s laws on entry and settlement are being enforced.

So Newsday, like much of the legacy print media, still holds on to some old-fashioned notions about fair play and letting dissenting voices be heard, even if the dissenting voices only get a couple of column inches on page A24 while the front several pages of the paper are wall-to-wall Ruling Class propaganda.

But when the final paper edition of Newsday rolls off the press, around five years from now, the last of the old-line liberals will have died or been pensioned off, and the legions of the Woke will be totally in charge. There will then be no more equivocation, no more of this mealy-mouthed petit-bourgeois “on the one hand…on the other…,” no more readers’ letters.

You will be told what to think in no uncertain terms; and if you dissent, your dissent will have no public outlet.

What I have described there is of course not peculiar to New York’s Suffolk County. Local newspapers are like this all over. Staffed as they are by second-raters and recent college graduates, local newspapers are even stupider and more rigidly ideological than the metropolitan broadsheets. Here’s another example from the Portland Press-Herald out of Portland, Maine: Asylum seekers from Africa describe difficult journeys to Maine, by Rob Wolfe, June 12, 2019.

Portland ME has gotten itself a reputation for hospitality to “asylum seekers,” which is to say, border-jumpers and visa-overstayers who have memorized enough of a hard-luck story to get them past the perfunctory screening they’re given by the authorities.

We’ve been reporting on Portland for some years. Our own Patrick Cleburne noted back in 2014 that the state of Maine in general, and Portland ME in particular, are especially attractive to people from non-English-speaking African countries because of their exceptionally lush benefits:

More than 90 percent of asylum seekers receiving assistance in Portland last year arrived from four turbulent African nations: Burundi, Angola, Congo and Rwanda.

Those four named countries have nine official languages between them: French, Portuguese, English, Swahili, Kituba, Lingala, Kirundi, Tshiluba, and Kinyarwanda.

That was five years ago, though; Portland ME is probably even more multilingual today.

ORDER IT NOW

This recent story is a collection of anecdotes targeted to tug at gentry-liberal heartstrings, anecdotes about the hardships endured by Africans making their way up through South and Central America to cross our southern border into the U.S.A., from whence they get transported up to the promised land of Portland ME.

Our treatment of these people, the story implies, is shamefully harsh:

Once the migrants apply for asylum, they must wait months to receive their work permits.

Oh, the humanity!

What kind of work will they do, once they get those work permits?

Mafumba [a political science professor back in the Congo] is weighing hospitality and tourism work, and also plans to go back to school. Nduluyele was a taxi driver in the Congo, and now hopes to make a living driving trucks. In the meantime, state and local social services will help to fill the gap.

Can’t we hurry up those work permits? Surely the authorities know about America’s critical shortage of French-speaking political science professors and truck drivers?

I have no access to the print edition of the Press-Herald. The online edition has only one reader’s letter on the so-called “asylum seekers,” urging “acceptance and compassion” for them by a reader who says she is “feeling saddened, helpless and fearful because of the state of the world.”

I did notice, however, this weaselly little footnote to the online version of the story, added in italics at the end. Quote:

Comments are disabled on some stories about sensitive topics.

You see that, or something like it, rather a lot now where elite opinion is at odds with the views of the Great Unwashed. I predict you’ll see it more and more.

Then, one day soon, there’ll be no need for it, because everyone will have forgotten there was ever such a thing as a comment thread or a “Letters to the Editor” column.

Social media, increasingly repressive, are leading the way here. And soon there will be no outlets for opinion but social media.

We shall then be living in a society of the type the German-American sinologist Karl Wittfogel (Oriental Despotism) called a “beggar’s democracy“—a society in which citizens may hold what opinions they please, and express them freely to family members across the dinner table or to friends at the bar—but in which only one point of view is permitted in public forums.

John Derbyshire [email him] writes an incredible amount on all sorts of subjects for all kinds of outlets. (This no longer includes National Review, whose editors had some kind of tantrum and fired him.) He is the authorof We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism and several other books. He has had two books published by VDARE.com com: FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT (also available in Kindle) and FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT II: ESSAYS 2013.

    “…Africans making their way up through South and Central America to cross our southern border into the U.S.A., from whence they get transported up to the promised land of Portland ME”…which along with being Bon Appetit’s official 2018 Restaurant City of the Year seems to be putting itself in the position of vying to be the unofficial Refugee City of the Year. Just a couple of days ago Portland officials commandeered the local minor league basketball (Maine Red Claws) arena to serve as the latest emergency asylum shelter in the tiny city. Portland is thought to be the only municipality in the country with a local taxpayer-funded slush fund – the Portland Community Support Fund – which provides generous hand-outs to asylum claimants; making it a very comfortable oasis to hang out in while your application process drags out. And if your application eventually gets turned down, you can always disappear into the vast nearby woods, and never have to worry about being deported. Maine also has higher than the national average welfare benefits, which were originally intended for local indigents in what has always been a very poor state, but which instead enticed a lot of welfare queens and freeloaders from surrounding states as far away as New York to move in and join the party. Asylum seekers, real & otherwise, are apparently following suit. And the city doesn’t appear inclined to stop this ceaseless caravan. It had been reported that an assistant in the Portland city manager’s office had told San Antonio officials that Portland had reached its limit & could no longer accept any new asylum seekers but the Portland City Council quickly overruled him, so there is no end in sight. Not even Portland, OR would be this crazy.

    Comments on John Derbyshire’s 1985 visa and goings-on in the world at the time:

    The United States of America, non-immigrant visa
    issued at
    LONDON

    Date issued
    21 Oct 1985

    Valid for Multiple applications for entry until
    27 Oct 1987

    U.S. Immigration, New York, N.Y.
    Admitted: Oct 24, 1985

    The last date’s stamp is unclear; slightly sloppy stamp-work by the New York immigration agent. It looks possibly like ‘1986,’ but Derb explains elsewhere that his first entry was indeed 1985. Plus, why wait 368 days from date of issuing rather than 3 days?

    The visa issue date (Oct. 21, 1985) was a Monday. John Derbyshire’s arrival, Oct. 24, was a Thursday. On the same day as Derb’s arrival, British footballer and soccer-hooligan-archetype Wayne Rooney was born in Liverpool, England, to parents of Irish-Catholic ancestry.

    [MORE]

    The weekend before Derb’s arrival, Japan’s Nintendo released its first video game system (“NES”) for sale in select markets in the U.S. (general release was not until Q3 1986; over 30 million NES sets were eventually sold in the USA, one for every three U.S. households at the time). A few weeks after Derb’s arrival (Nov. 1985), Bill Gates released Microsoft Windows 1.0. A younger Donald Trump was, in Oct. 1985, in the process negotiating his purchase of the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, a deal he soon finalized, formally gaining title on Dec. 27, 1985.

    In fall 1985, Ronald Reagan was (of course) president and it was not a U.S. election year. Planning was underway for the first Reagan-Gorbachev summit, to be held at Geneva in November 1985.

    There was, when Derb stumbled out of the plane and onto U.S. soil that Thursday in fall 1985, as yet no sign at all of serious dissident activity in the communist nations of Europe; no sign of anti-regime activity in Leipzig; nor in Krakow or Warsaw, now that Solidarity was “over;” not in Prague, not in Budapest, not in St. Petersburg. Not anywhere, really. Exactly four years after Derb’s first arrival (i.e., Oct. 1989), major nationalist-tinged protests were underway in East Germany (the earliest and largest in Leipzig) and the fraying-at-the-seams of East Berlin’s Socialist Unity Party regime was also underway, with some degree of internal chaos and resignations (Communist premier Erich Honekcer resigned Oct. 18, 1989, four years to the week after Derb’s first U.S. arrival). The fall of the wall followed (Nov. 9, 1989). Derb, arriving at the airport on that Thursday in Oct. 1985, could not have foreseen any of that happening in a short four years, unless he had some kind of special clairvoyant powers.

    In the U.S. Congress, an illegal immigrant amnesty bill had been introduced five months before Derb’s first arrival, on “the recommendation of the bipartisan Commission on Immigration Reform, chaired by Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, then President of the University of Notre Dame.” That bill had passed the Senate 69-30 a month before Derb’s arrival (Sept. 19, 1985), but would not pass the House until Oct. 1986.

    As a result of that ill-conceived bill, in the process of passing Congress when Derb dropped into the U.S. for a multi-decade sojourn and eventually citizenship, several million illegals were amnestied-in in the late 1980s; fresh illegal crossings increased and many chain-migrants were brought in by these new, quasi-fraudulent citizens. The negative effects of that bill, surely one of (if not the) worst of the entire decade, have been with us very much in the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s, with no sign of it stopping in the 2020s.

    That ugly little bill, the evil “mini-me” to the 1965 bill, was a quiet turning point for the USA. Derb was perhaps even unaware of the bill when he presented himself to the passport-stamping-agent on that Thursday, October 24, 1985.

    From Derb’s main text:

    Why are legal immigrants entitled to food stamps? Put it another way, why are we admitting for permanent settlement people who can’t support themselves?

    Shouldn’t college financial aid be for Americans?

    Thoughts I am sure would have supermajority support among 1980s Americans, and even easy-majority open support. By the mid-late 2010s, something weird has occurred, and I expect only a minority of even core (White) Americans would openly say such common-sense things.

  9. How many of those South and Central American countries that the Portland Africans transited are considered “safe” for the purposes of asylum? Why are they not cooling their heels in one of those?

  13. Bubba says:

    Long Island Newsday, the newspaper formerly known as Newsday, has been a particularly annoying liberal rag since the 70’s when I delivered it everyday after school. I hated it then (as did most of my customers), but for different reasons. Delivering the Long Island Press (descended from the Long Island Farmer) was more profitable for me as a young boy, but that came to a sad end due to a printing strike in 1977. My Newsday customers, many of whom were former Long Island Press readers, despised the politics and mocked it as Jewsday. And there were no other local daily papers that could be delivered to their doorsteps.

    Anyhoo, Newsday had a much better Sports section and was thus far more popular among the masses than the Long Island Press. And as far as I could tell the Newsday editorials were generally ignored as Nassau County remained a GOP stronghold years ago. But eventually the local corruption and skyrocketing property taxes (teachers unions) have taken their toll and liberal Democrats have since taken it over. C’est la vie…

    Thank you for that.

    I’m also old enough to remember “exchange students,” because of course, land-grant colleges have only so many slots, which are reserved for the youth of the State’s citizenry which chartered the college and maintain it. So foreigners wishing to enter the college would be “exchanged” with students of our college. Naturally, the numbers were very, very low, college being a scarce commodity reserved for a qualified few, after all.

    How quaint!

  18. “Nduluyele was a taxi driver in the Congo, and now hopes to make a living driving trucks.”

    Nduluyele is in for a nasty shock. The requirements for a real truck driver’s license are quite strict. They involve a hands-on test of familiarity with instruments, safety procedures, and operation.. Certificates to drive, e.g., air-brake equipped vehicles, buses, liquid cargoes, etc., require additional licensing. Most unconnected individuals end up taking a lengthy course that can cost well over ten thousand dollars and certainly requires a comfortable grasp of the English language. Recouping these costs is not easy as inexperienced drtivers earn quite little per mile. (Typically drivers are paid by the mile.)

    Perhaps I should have written, “Either Nduluyele or the poor American family, whom an unlicensed Nduluyele will eventually kill in a horrific traffic accident, is in for a nasty shock.”

    Mr. Bubba, a little more (older) history here. Newsday was always a Democrat party newspaper, even in the 1960’s…if I remember correctly, their motto was : “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
    Ironic.

    Newsday had a worthy opponent in the mid-60’s, the Suffolk Sun (I delivered that) which soon folded, partly because of Newsday’s predatory advertising policy: if you advertised in any other paper than Newsday, you had to pay a higher rate than those businesses which advertised only in Newsday. This came to light when Dave Wilmott (Suffolk Life) sued Newsday in the ’80’s over this practice.

    I guess this is too much inside baseball for anyone other than an old Long Islander, but there it is.

  31. Gripe sessions among the already persuaded (the anti-woke, perhaps?) aren’t going to advance the cause very far. Derbyshire and other anti-immigration polemicists need to keep one thing in mind: their success depends upon the conversion of white people who today are likely to regard them as abhorrent racists. If they aren’t aiming for this conversion, then all the nice debating points avail nothing. Therefore, may I suggest that he and his readers focus on how to acknowledge the decency and compassion that the “Goodwhites” exhibit toward aliens and to devise arguments attractive enough to win them over. Simply calling them chumps isn’t working.

  34. Alden says:
    @BengaliCanadianDude

    The Ottoman Sultans were actually not Turks at all. They were ethnic E European Slavs That’s because around 800 AD they stopped marrying and stopped using Turkish slave women. All the Sultan’s women were European slaves including their mothers.

    Full Turk Sultan has a baby boy by Slav slave. Boy half Turk half Slav. Half Slav boy becomes Sultan has boy by Slav slave. Boy is 3/4 Slav 1/4 Turk. In just 3 generations the Sultan is just 1/8 Turk. By 1700 the Sultans must have been 90 percent European Slav 10 percent Turk.

    There were good reasons for having children only by European slaves. It prevented foreign Queens and their spy entourages. It prevented rivalry between aristocrat clans when the King marries a woman from one powerful clan and the other clans resent the marriage.

    But, it bred the Turk genes out of the royal line and replaced then with European Slav genes.

    The Sultans usually killed or confined their brothers. But their sisters married into the aristocrats and upper military who also had a multitude of European slave women.

    After a while, the only ethnic Turks were those from families too poor to buy European slave girls.

    A fleet of Turkish slave ships raided the town of Baltimore on the west coast of Ireland in the 1600s.

If you intend to apply for permanent residency you will need to demonstrate an income per month over the past six months of at least least 500 days’ worth of minimum wage (approximately US$2,700*) or have savings equivalent amounting to 20,000 days’ worth of minimum wage (approximately US$108,000*) over the past 12 months.

    Paki Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is Aghast at the Idea That British People Might “Be Able to Say What They Like”
    Frei
    Daily Stormer
    June 14, 2019

    “Paki Yasmin Alibhai-Brown (YAB) is aghast at the idea that British people might, in the future, be able ‘to say what they like.’ She was attacking Boris Johnson, who, at a press conference earlier in the week, defended his right to compare burka-wearing Moslem women to letterboxes.”

    Are we saying that we should be free to say whatever we like?

    He’s given permission. What people want is not to veil what they think.

    If we don’t really veil what we think in public spaces, what happens next?

    I know what happens next. People feel they’re free to call me Paki.

    This is a Prime Minister in waiting. Is he telling the people ‘Just go round saying what you want’?

  47. @Hail

    First of all, Hail, that was a really nice comment, with your recalling of some of the history happening around the time of John Derbyshire’s arrival in America. It was a different time, as they say. There were not millions of mainland Chinese people every year coming and going (but more coming than going). In the 1980’s the Chinatowns had Hong Kong Chinese living there, and the only Chinese people I’d ever met were very-assimilated people that were originally from Taiwan.

    So, at the rate Mr. Derbyshire’s wife Rosie (arriving in late ’86) and others on fiancé and marriage visas came in, this was, and still is, a drop in the bucket compared to the illegal Chinese immigration and the family reunification chain migration mess of the last decade or so.

    Since you brought all those events of the mid 1980’s up, Hail, I’d like to add the Tiananmen Square protests of 30 years ago, and remind people that that was still 3 1/2 years after Mr. Derbyshire’s arrival here.

    Nobody, besides I guess the globalist elites that are behind, or at least encouraging, the massive influx, expected the numbers of Chinese people we have coming now. I get along with them pretty well myself, but as Peak Stupidity’s last post on Tiananmen Square noted, the people are not the ones that will be gunning for their Citizenship in the Nation merit badges.

    To those with the unceasing comments about John Derbyshire’s Chinese wife, especially attilathehen, please keep in mind the difference between the situation in the mid-1980’s versus now. I’m sure Mrs. Derbyshire is very assimilated. Now the voting for Øb☭ma business, that’s more a matter of the big fuck-up called women’s suffrage, voted in nearly a century back. I think we’ve sufferad enough from that one. End it.

There’s a big difference between one immigrant couple living and raising their kids in an American neighborhood and sending them to American schools, and thousands living in ethnic enclaves where their kids can go weeks without seeing a legacy American.

    New Quebec law stresses migrants’ skills, thousands must reapply

    Montreal (AFP) – The Quebec provincial legislature on Sunday approved a controversial immigration bill that will replace a first-come, first-served standard for accepting migrants with one tied to an applicants’ skills.

    The law is similar to a proposed plan from US President Donald Trump that would shift his country’s visa system from family-based immigration towards bringing in more skilled workers.

    The law will attempt to more closely match the skills offered by would-be immigrants with the needs of the labor market in Quebec, Canada’s second most-populous province.

    International political asylum law requires them to apply in the FIRST country they enter where they are no longer subject to the political persecution from which they are fleeing. They cannot just keep traveling until they find a country they happen to like. That’s no longer asylum, that’s migration.

    Note I said “political asylum”. There is NO SUCH THING as “international asylum law”. There is only “international political asylum law”. IOW they must be subjected to political persecution in their home country, NOT merely hungry, unemployed, threatened by gangs, or hit by a drunk husband.

    The terminology has been changed to “asylum” n “sanctuary” deliberately to deceive the public into thinking that somehow the law requires allowing gate-crashing migrants to go thru a legal process. Under international law they are entitled to nothing except a quick arrest n expulsion back across the border.

How any of these people ever passed a CDL exam is beyond me. Illinois is supposedly one of the harder states to obtain a CDL, especially since the Licenses for Bribes scandal 20 years ago.

    Also – commercial truck driving schools in the area are $3-4000 thousand dollars, which includes the cost of SoS permits, DOT physical, road test, etc.

    “Don’t some trucks have like 15 gears?”

    Once upon a time. Most carriers are updating their fleets with automatic transmissions. Pretty much the only manuals left for OTR applications are the Eaton 13 speed (actually only 10 forward gears, 2 reverse, and they count neutral as a speed) which is easier to shift than the synchronized manual transmission in a passenger car. Even construction vehicles are moving to automatics.

    You’ll find some Eaton 9 speeds, 7 speed Spicers or even 5 speed maxidynes in smaller outfits, but all the big OTR fleets are 13 speed or automatic now.

    I read American Dilemma. Part of it carefully didn’t mention integrated schools, but laid out the essential argument for them.

    One of Myrdahl’s themes is that American Whites didn’t disdain blacks because of personal experience. According to him, White parents taught their children to hate blacks in very early childhood. Even parents in communities 100 miles from the nearest black taught their children blacks were inferior.

    Obvious solution? Integrate the schools and the White children would see how normal, well behaved intelligent and nice black children are.

    We all know how that worked out don’t we?

    By Brown vs Topeka the big fraud was that the only reason black trust scores and IQ were so low was that black schools were somehow inferior and that integration would somehow result in better results for blacks.

    Brown was bizarre legally. I’d like to know how the lead plaintiff ever got standing to be the plaintiff. She wasn’t a black child who wanted to go to a White school 5 blocks away instead of a black school 1o blocks away. She wasn’t a black parent who wanted her child to attend a nearby White school.

    Esther Brown was an attorney a Jew of course. No children in the Topeka schools. How’d she get standing? The American Jewish Committee was the abomination that funded Brown and previous school integration law suits.

    The constitution is whatever any judge says it is.

    The interpretation of the constitution in school integration and bussing by the Judges was nothing more than judicial dictatorship.

    1956 the constitution requires that all children should attend their nearest public school.

    1966 the constitution requires that millions of children get on school buses costing billions a year to attend schools 20,30, miles away.

    And it destroyed so many of our great cities. Even worse than the school buses was that many of the city animals didn’t get on the buses and go back to the projects.

    They cut out of school and terrorized the White neighborhoods they were bussed into and took the city busses home. And of course terrorized the city bus systems.
