The immigration debate seems to have gone crazy.

President Obama’s widely popular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which offered some 750,000 young immigrants brought to the United States as children a temporary reprieve from deportation, is ending… except it isn’t… except it is… President Trump claims to support it but ordered its halt, while both Republicans and Democrats insist that they want to preserve it and blame each other for its impending demise. (Meanwhile, the Supreme Court recently stepped in to allow DACA recipients to renew their status at least for now.)

On a single day in mid-February, the Senate rejected no less than four immigration bills. These ranged from a narrow proposal to punish sanctuary cities that placed limits on local police collaboration with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials to major overhauls of the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act that established the current system of immigration quotas (with preferences for “family reunification”).

And add in one more thing: virtually everyone in the political sphere is now tailoring his or her pronouncements and votes to political opportunism rather than the real issues at hand.

Politicians and commentators who once denounced “illegal immigration,” insisting that people “do it the right way,” are now advocating stripping legal status from many who possess it and drastically cutting even legalized immigration. These days, the hearts of conservative Republicans, otherwise promoting programs for plutocrats, are bleeding for low-wage workers whose livelihoods, they claim (quite incorrectly), are being undermined by competition from immigrants. Meanwhile, Chicago Democrat Luis Gutiérrez — a rare, reliably pro-immigrant voice in Congress — recently swore that, when it came to Trump’s much-touted wall on the Mexican border, he was ready to “take a bucket, take bricks, and start building it myself… We will dirty our hands in order for the Dreamers to have a clean future in America.”

While in Gutiérrez’s neck of the woods, favoring Dreamers may seem politically expedient, giving in to Trump’s wall would result in far more than just dirty hands, buckets, and bricks, and the congressman knows that quite well. The significant fortifications already in place on the U.S.-Mexican border have already contributed to the deaths of thousands of migrants, to the increasing militarization of the region, to a dramatic rise of paramilitary drug- and human-smuggling gangs, and to a rise in violent lawlessness on both sides of the border. Add to that a 2,000-mile concrete wall or some combination of walls, fences, bolstered border patrols, and the latest in technology and you’re not just talking about some benign waste of money in return for hanging on to the DACA kids.

In the swirl of all this, the demands of immigrant rights organizations for a “clean Dream Act” that would genuinely protect DACA recipients without giving in to Trump’s many anti-immigration demands have come to seem increasingly unrealistic. No matter that they hold the only morally coherent position in town — and a broadly popular one nationally as well — DACA’s congressional backers seem to have already conceded defeat.

Good Guys and Bad Guys

It won’t surprise you, I’m sure, to learn that Donald Trump portrays the world in a strikingly black-and-white way when it comes to immigration (and so much else). He emphasizes the violent criminal nature of immigrants and the undocumented, repeatedly highlighting and falsely generalizing from relatively rare cases in which one of them committed a violent crime like the San Francisco killing of Kate Steinle. His sweeping references to “foreign bad guys” and “shithole countries” suggest that he applies the same set of judgments to the international arena.

Under Trump’s auspices, the agency in charge of applying the law to immigrants, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, has taken the concept of criminality to new heights in order to justify expanded priorities for deportation. Now, an actual criminal conviction is no longer necessary. An individual with “pending criminal charges” or simply a “known gang member” has also become an ICE “priority.” In other words, a fear-inspiring accusation or even rumor is all that’s needed to deem an immigrant a “criminal.”

And such attitudes are making their way ever deeper into this society. I’ve seen it at Salem State University, the college where I teach. In a recent memo explaining why he opposes giving the school sanctuary-campus status, the chief of campus police insisted that his force must remain authorized to report students to ICE when there are cases of “bad actors… street gang participation… drug trafficking… even absent a warrant or other judicial order.” In other words, due process be damned, the police, any police, can determine guilt as they wish.

And this tendency toward such a Trumpian Manichaean worldview, now being used to justify the growth of what can only be called an incipient police state, is so strong that it’s even infiltrated the thinking of some of the president’s immigration opponents. Take “chain migration,” an obscure concept previously used mainly by sociologists and historians to describe nineteenth and twentieth century global migration patterns. The president has, of course, made it his epithet du jour.

Because the president spoke of “chain migration” in such a derogatory way, anti-Trump liberals immediately assumed that the phrase was inherently insulting. MSNBC correspondent Joy Reid typically charged that “the president is saying that the only bill he will approve of must end what they call ‘chain migration’ which is actually a term we in the media should just not use! Because quite frankly it’s not a real thing, it’s a made up term… [and] so offensive! It’s shocking to me that we’re just adopting it wholesale because [White House adviser] Stephen Miller wants to call it that… [The term should be] family migration.”

Similarly, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand claimed that “when someone uses the phrase chain migration… it is intentional in trying to demonize families, literally trying to demonize families, and make it a racist slur.” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi agreed: “Look what they’re doing with family unification, making up a fake name, chain. Chain, they like the word ‘chain.’ That sends tremors through people.”

But chain migration is not the same as family reunification. Chain migration is a term used by academics to explain how people tended to migrate from their home communities using pre-existing networks. Examples would include the great migration of African Americans from the rural south to the urban north and west, the migrations of rural Appalachians to Midwestern industrial cities, waves of European migration to the United States at the turn of the last century, as well as contemporary migration from Latin America and Asia.

A single individual or a small group, possibly recruited through a state-sponsored system or by an employer, or simply knowing of employment opportunities in a particular area, sometimes making use of a new rail line or steamship or air route, would venture forth, opening up new horizons. Once in a new region or land, such immigrants directly or indirectly recruited friends, acquaintances, and family members. Soon enough, there were growing links — hence that “chain” — between the original rural or urban communities where such people lived and distant cities. Financial remittances began to flow back; return migration (or simply visits to the old homeland) took place; letters about the new world arrived; and sometimes new technologies solidified ongoing ties, impelling yet more streams of migrants. That’s the chain in chain migration and, despite the president and his supporters, there’s nothing offensive about it.

Family reunification, on the other hand, was a specific part of this country’s 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, which imposed quotas globally. These were then distributed through a priority system that privileged the close relatives of immigrants who had already become permanent residents or U.S. citizens. Family reunification opened paths for those who had family members in the United States (though in countries where the urge to migrate was high, the waiting list could be decades long). In the process, however, it made legal migration virtually impossible for those without such ties. There was no “line” for them to wait in. Like DACA and Temporary Protected Status (TPS), the two programs that President Trump is now working so assiduously to dismantle, family reunification has been beneficial to those in a position to take advantage of it, even if it excluded far more people than it helped.

Why does this matter? As a start, at a moment when political posturing and “fake news” are becoming the norm, it’s important that the immigrant rights movement remain accurate and on solid ground in its arguments. (Indeed, the anti-immigrant right has been quick to gloat over Democrats condemning a term they had been perfectly happy to use in the past.) In addition, it’s crucial not to be swept away by Trump’s Manichaean view of the world when it comes to immigration. Legally, family reunification was never an open-arms policy. It was always a key component in a system of quotas meant to limit, control, and police migration, often in stringent ways. It was part of a system built to exclude at least as much as include. There may be good reasons to defend the family reunification provisions of the 1965 Act, just as there are good reasons to defend DACA — but that does not mean that a deeply problematic status quo should be glorified.

Racism and the Immigrant “Threat”

Those very quotas and family-reunification policies served to “illegalize” most Mexican migration to the United States. That, in turn, created the basis not just for militarizing the police and the border, but for what anthropologist Leo Chávez has called the “Latino threat narrative”: the notion that the United States somehow faces an existential threat from Mexican and other Latino immigrants.

So President Trump has drawn on a long legacy here, even if in a particularly invidious fashion. The narrative evolved over time in ways that sought to downplay its explicitly racial nature. Popular commentators railed against “illegal” immigrants, while lauding those who “do it the right way.” The threat narrative, for instance, lurked at the very heart of the immigration policies of the Obama administration. President Obama regularly hailed exceptional Latino and other immigrants, even as the criminalization, mass incarceration, and deportation of so many were, if anything, being ramped up. Criminalization provided a “color-blind” cover as the president separated undocumented immigrants into two distinct groups: “felons” and “families.” In those years, so many commentators postured on the side of those they defined as the deserving exceptions, while adding further fuel to the threat narrative.

President Trump has held onto a version of this ostensibly color-blind and exceptionalist narrative, while loudly proclaiming himself “the least racist person” anyone might ever run into and praising DACA recipients as “good, educated, and accomplished young people.” But the racist nature of his anti-immigrant extremism and his invocations of the “threat” have gone well beyond Obama’s programs. In his attack on legal immigration, chain migration, and legal statuses like DACA and TPS, race has again reared its head explicitly.

Unless they were to come from “countries like Norway” or have some special “merit,” Trump seems to believe that immigrants should essentially all be illegalized, prohibited, or expelled. Some of his earliest policy moves like his attacks on refugees and his travel ban were aimed precisely at those who would otherwise fall into a legal category, those who had “followed the rules,” “waited in line,” “registered with the government,” or “paid taxes,” including refugees, DACA kids, and TPS recipients — all of them people already in the system and approved for entry or residence.

As ICE spokespeople remind us when asked to comment on particularly egregious examples of the arbitrary detention and deportation of long-term residents, President Trump has rescinded the Obama-era “priority enforcement” program that emphasized the apprehension and deportation of people with criminal records and recent border-crossers. Now, “no category of removable aliens [is] exempt from enforcement.” While President Trump has continued to verbally support the Dreamers, his main goal in doing so has clearly been to use them as a bargaining chip in obtaining his dramatically restrictionist priorities from a reluctant Congress.

The U.S. Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) made the new restrictionist turn official in late February when it revised its mission statement to delete this singular line: “USCIS secures America’s promise as a nation of immigrants.” No longer. Instead, we are now told, the agency “administers the nation’s lawful immigration system, safeguarding its integrity and promise… while protecting Americans, securing the homeland, and honoring our values.”

Challenging the Restrictionist Agenda

Many immigrant rights organizations have fought hard against the criminalization narrative that distinguishes the Dreamers from other categories of immigrants. Mainstream and Democrat-affiliated organizations have, however, generally pulled the other way, emphasizing the “innocence” of those young people who were brought here “through no fault of their own.”

Dreamers, TPS recipients, refugees, and even those granted priority under the family reunification policy have all operated as exceptions to what has long been a far broader restrictionist immigration agenda. Trump has now taken that agenda in remarkably extreme directions. So fighting to protect such exceptional categories makes sense, given the millions who have benefited from them, but no one should imagine that America’s policies have ever been generous or open.

Regarding refugees, for example, the State Department website still suggests that “the United States is proud of its history of welcoming immigrants and refugees… The U.S. refugee resettlement program reflects the United States’ highest values and aspirations to compassion, generosity, and leadership.” Even before Trump entered the Oval Office, this wasn’t actually true: the refugee resettlement program has always been both small and highly politicized. For example, out of approximately seven million Syrian refugees who fled the complex set of conflicts in their country since 2011 — conflicts that would not have unfolded as they did without the American invasion of Iraq — the United States has accepted only 21,000. Now, however, the fight to preserve even such numbers looks like a losing rearguard battle.

Given that a truly just reform of the country’s immigration system is inconceivable at the moment, it makes sense that those concerned with immigrant rights concentrate on areas where egregious need or popular sympathy have made stopgap measures realistic. The problem is that, over the years, this approach has tended to separate out particular groups of immigrants from the larger narrative and so failed to challenge the underlying racial and criminalizing animus toward all those immigrants consigned to the depths of the economic system and systematically denied the right of belonging.

In a sense, President Trump is correct: there really isn’t a way to draw a hard and fast line between legal and illegal immigration or between the felons and the families. Many immigrants live in mixed-status households, including those whose presence has been authorized in different ways or not authorized at all. And most of those felons, often convicted of recently criminalized, immigration-related or other minor violations, have families, too.

Trump and his followers, of course, want just about all immigrants to be criminalized and excluded or deported because, in one way or another, they consider them dangers to the rest of us. While political realism demands that battles be fought for the rights of particular groups of immigrants, it’s no less important to challenge the looming narrative of immigrant criminalization and to refuse to assume that the larger war has already been lost. In the end, isn’t it time to challenge the notion that people in general, and immigrants in particular, can be easily divided into deserving good guys and undeserving bad guys?

    I must say that some of the commenters on my website are rather delusional….

    Although reported rapes have increased a good deal in San Jose over the last decade, that’s a very poor measure of crime since rape-reporting is so extremely variable. For example, some of the absolutely worst urban centers in America have relatively low or average rates of *reported* rape. So maybe actual SJ rapes have gone up and maybe they haven’t.

    By contrast, homicide is the gold-standard in crime since reporting is close to 100%. And although San Jose homicides were up quite a bit in 2016, they plunged by something like 40% in 2017, making that city once again just about the safest in the entire country, despite having so few police officers.

    If you check, you’ll discover that crime rates in San Jose are roughly the same as those in tiny Beverly Hills, or perhaps even a little lower. So I guess you must be very glad you don’t live in a horrific urban hell-hole like Beverly Hills 90210…

    What is the hispanic rape rate vs. the white rape rate? Can this even be figured out in light of how the DoJ reports offender race?

    Most on the far right do indeed overestimate the hispanic penchant for crime (as you exposed), but I can overlook this vice. After all, they are undesirable invaders and quite unattractive to boot.

    I suspect rape statistics become more reliable once you eliminate black areas from the data. In African countries it is routine to have billboards telling men not to rape women, and the locals express confusion about the idea of rape being wrong. Likely black communities have high rates of what we regard as rape, but the locals either do not or do not care enough to report it.

    Going over pages of the Illinois sex offender registry I’m struck by how Hispanics are so glaringly misidentified. Those with obvious Hispanic names not to mention appearance are routinely categorized as race being unknown or as white. I’m not sure if this is due to employee stupidity, bureaucratic ineptness or what but there’s definitely an undercount of Hispanics in the statistics.

    Most on the far right do indeed overestimate the hispanic penchant for crime

    Maybe they’re looking at what goes on in Latin America where the murder rate is sky high and assume, quite reasonably, that that’s what will move up here if it hasn’t already.

  7. Examples would include the great migration of African Americans from the rural south to the urban north and west, the migrations of rural Appalachians to Midwestern industrial cities.

    Those internal migrations, which resulted in massive economic benefits for Blacks and Appalachians, only occurred because immigration was temporarily shut down by WW1, the quota-based immigration restriction acts of 1920 and 1924, and the stringent enforcement of immigration laws by presidents such as FDR and Eisenhower (“Operation Wetback”), forcing industrialists to use domestic labor resources.

    The great pause in immigration, 1914-1965, allowed economically disadvantaged native born Americans to monopolize the domestic labor market and thus rise into the middle class in massive numbers.

    Ever since immigration started increasing again with the repeal of the quota based system in 1965 and the lax enforcement of immigration laws on the part of all presidents since Eisenhower, the American lower middle class has been sliding back towards poverty, as a direct result of unemployment, lower wages, higher housing costs, and higher taxes at the state and local level (where taxes are, unavoidably, regressive), all caused directly by mass immigration.

    Furthermore, post-1965 immigrants tend to vote for the cultural left, who in turn dismantle the traditional systems of morality which used to shield the native born lower class from self destructive behavior (see Murray’s Coming Apart for details).

    Is Chomsky ignorant of all this, or does she choose to play dumb because she hates old stock Americans and wants policies to be implemented which will harm them?

    The ideal immigration policy would consist of the following:

    1. Deport, or encourage the self deportation of, all illegal immigrants (Operation Wetback 2.0)

    2. Remove all artificial incentives which discourage the post-1965 legal chain immigration from operating in reverse (hope of family reunification in America, welfare, affirmative action, no go zone policing, undo toleration for Central American gangs and militant Salafists, etc.).

    3. A complete and permanent moratorium on legal immigration, with one exception:

    4. Unlimited immigration of Afrikaners and Ulster Protestants. These peoples are extremely similar to America’s core ethnic group, old-stock White Protestants. They would reinforce their traditional morality and demographic dominance, much as Jewish immigrants do for Israel. Furthermore, they would be grateful for asylum from their current oppressors, the ANC and IRA. The US government supported, or negligently tolerated groups and individuals who supported, the Marxist terrorist groups Umkhonto we Sezwe and IRA. Americans thus have a moral obligation to rescue these brother nations from the tyranny thus established. There are a total of only 2,750,000 Afrikaners and 1,000,000 Ulster Protestants. The maximum possible immigration of these groups would thus not have the negative economic consequences of the current mass immigration.

    You know what, Mr Unz, try using Google and seeing how much violent crime has spiked in San Jose in the past few years. At the risk of losing my commenting privileges, I must say you are beginning to sound like the Hispanophile, Fred Reed. San Jose used to have almost zero incidences of violent crime and now, you can’t drop your kids off to play basketball at a park and be sure that they they will come home alive. Let me reiterate, almost all crime in San Jose is a direct result of Hispanic immigration.

    Ha, ha, ha… If I banned every commenter who said totally ridiculous things, there wouldn’t be too many left on my website!

    I read the SJ Merc every morning, and also saw that big year-end story on the “horrifying” spike of violent crime in San Jose during 2017 you cite. However, the actual facts were a bit less alarming.

    SJ Violent crime did raise by 7.2% that year, but for various reasons, it rose throughout CA, including by 5.5% in my own city of Palo Alto. Is 7.2% so much larger than 5.5%? My guess is that the silly story was pushed by the SJ police union, looking for a big budget increase or something.

    Furthermore, as I’d already mentioned, homicides dropped by something like 35% in San Jose that same year, reducing the figure to among the lowest anywhere in urban America. Since you’re apparently terrified by being killed by San Jose gang-bangers, I’d advise you never to visit Tokyo since everyone who watches movies knows that the Yakuza gangsters are always massacring innocent bystandes on every street corner, not to mention the huge numbers killed by Ninja warriors and Godzilla on his episodic rampages.

    Here’s a website providing aggregate crime data for San Jose through 2016 (prior to the huge homicide drop in 2017). Offhand, the crime rates seem about the same as it was 15 years ago:

    And for comparison, here’s ultra-wealthy Beverly Hills, with has roughly comparable crime rates:

    My heart bleeds for the people of Beverly Hills, who risk being killed in a drive-by on every trip to the grocery store.

    Crime statistics mean very little. White men have a history of violence, which will become apparent if this invasion continues. However, only white men can create the kind of cultures most people want to live in, so the invasions of all white cultures will continue until force is used.

    Otherwise, South Africa will be our fate. White job creation caused migrants to swell the population by a factor of 10. They used democracy to turn the white culture into their culture, typified by the ANC. Now, they are threatening to use democracy to vote themselves a license to steal, confiscation of land without compensation. Will the whites fight or flee?

    Although reported rapes have increased a good deal in San Jose over the last decade, that’s a very poor measure of crime since rape-reporting is so extremely variable.

    That’s right. Plus, feminists (and their cuckservative servants) have successfully expanded the definition of rape that has engineered a 50-100% increase in *reported* rape, even if the actual incidence has not changed under apples-to-apples measures.

    Add to that the well-documented fact that 40% of rape accusations are false (and that women get a financial incentive to make such false accusations).

    Murder is the crime that counts, since the victim can be identified and recorded. There are no ‘false accusations of murder’, nor can a person be murdered twice.

    Don’t do it. Do not attempt to violate the sovereignty of the US via crossing the border illegally in any manner.

    That’s hysterical. How about Druze or Kemetism or even Cargo Cult? Clearly, the idea is to pretend Trump is both driven and blinded by some obscure,” illegitimate” religion we can make fun of and at the same time pass off the author with a faux intellectualism. As if the author actually had done a valid analysis of Trump and Manichean belief – and why that matters.

    Trump is a Christian religiously, and clearly understands negotiation and compromise politically. Sun Tzu is a better understanding of how Trump thinks and acts, if the author is attempting an extremely weak parallel between the dualism in Manichean thought and Trump’s much less simplistic behavior.

    When stupid Belgians overnight introduced democracy the dominant group, always forget which, lost power.
    Any group losing power resists, nothing special, happens anywhere.

    We need Israel’s wall and Israel’s immigration policy. Despite his many problems we must give credit to Mr. Netanyahu for his candor. Israel can handle the occasional terrorist but it can’t handle the demographic flood from Africa that would change it forever. Importing millions of additional south of the border types to this country will ensure that we become much more like Honduras.

    One thing superbly clear, is that no one of significantly Jewish heritage, should be pimping for mass immigration and open borders –

    Unless they first prominently, loudly, and consistently denounce the State of Israel for its ethno-centric strict anti-immigration policies … Israel so ethnically-biased they even reject highly religious black JEWS from Africa, via specious claims they are ‘not really Jewish’ etc … unlike totally atheist Ashkenazic white Jews, fully accepted as instant Israelis tho believing in nothing

    Eldest daughter Aviva Chomsky is here re-inforcing the long-running theme that her father the celeb ‘leftist’ Noam Chomsky, a ‘Zionist lite’ part-backer of Israel, was always a ‘limited hang out’, ‘controlled opposition’ pseudo-dissident

    Noam Chomsky and some others, were allowed to become ‘celebrities’ upon their agreement to join in pooh-poohing the JFK assassination files, which Noam claims ‘were not important’ … later making the same argument re 9-11

    That crime will move here as the Hispanic drug gangs move here. And as the post-Christian Hispanics arrive, continuing to rediscover their pagan ancestry.

    Historically, not merely white/Gringo atheists have endorsed the latter, but so have many rather devout Protestants. I first heard the logic 3 decades ago from a Southern Baptist and a Pentecostal, both with long histories of ‘missionary’ work in Mexico and Central America. They said that to break the stranglehold of Catholicism, you sometimes had to help them get halfway re-paganized.

    So, both Anglo-American liberalism and Anglo-American Protestantism play key roles in Mexican American crime rates. Bad philosophy and bad theology do that.

    First off, the so called “wildly popular DACA”, you mean the illegally imposed Obama legislation, then supported by the Zionist media?

    Polls mean absolutely NOTHING in America. The ZioMedia purposely hides the innumerable downsides of mass immigration, and play up the guilt to make the sheep get in line. Popularity in the 21st century is only a measure of the power of the Zionist media to manipulate the indigenous American population to work against it’s own interests.

    If you love your country, you are against mass Latino immigration, because what is happening to America is not something anyone would wish in their worst enemy.

  33. “the U.S.-Mexican border have already contributed to the deaths of thousands of migrants, to the increasing militarization of the region, to a dramatic rise of paramilitary drug- and human-smuggling gangs, and to a rise in violent lawlessness on both sides of the border”

Other than the fact that Obingo allowed these children to come here in the first place. Aren’t a bunch of these DACA kids part of the child invasion of a couple years ago?

Where, I ask you do migrants (“who make less than whites”) get the money to afford new cars, homes, phones etc…, which many white families cannot afford? Drugs, illegal activities, crime and cartels.

    My hometown in Pennsylvania is a shining example of the effects of illegal immigration. No one knows exactly how many illegal hispanics are here, but after having worked in Los Angeles for a few decades I wouldn’t hesitate to compare my area in PA to east LA. Some cities, like Hazleton, have gone from a small percentage of illegals to a current majority of the population. This area has also had a massive influx of blacks from the Bronx and Philadelphia within the last ten years. The last reports I’ve seen on our area give it a homicide rate 200% higher than Philadelphia and 800% higher than New York. Economically, we are tied with Little Rock, Arkansas, for last place in the nation.

    The daily news here offers the same droning reports of massive heroin busts and murders, hispanic domestic violence and child sexual molestation (a few blocks away an 86-year-old Mexican raped a 6-year-old girl, etc), blacks with a chronic penchant for infanticide, Dominican school kids settling their differences with machetes, packs of black teenagers roaming the streets day and night to beat up and rob people for their money and cell phones. A public service announcement last year even urged students not to walk alone during the day on their own college campuses. Add to this the endless reports of people dropping like flies from heroin and opioid overdoses.

    You can’t walk safely in any neighborhood anymore. Like LA, you live in your car going from one place to another, and the place you go to is likely a mall or store or bank where the video monitor ads they flash in your face are all in Spanish.

    Another effect of illegal immigration, I had a middle-aged cousin, a professional investor, who was killed during a robbery attempt, stabbed in the heart with a letter opener by an illegal Mexican. And now as tax payers we have the privilege of paying about $50k a year to house that Mexican in a steel cage for the rest of his life.

    To use an art metaphor, it looks like we’ve gone from Norman Rockwell to Hieronymus Bosch in about a decade.

    And I no longer see a political solution to any of it.

    This changes nothing to poor in the USA, and also in European countries, feeling poor, and being seen as poor.
    In Germany poverty is defined as an income lower than 60% of the average income, something like that.
    The attraction for migrant to come to W Europe is that for many being poor here is far more attractive than being rich in where they come from.
    And indeed, without doing anything.
    More than half of our poor are of non western origin, they cost us three billion a year.

    Is there any discussion of immigration law that benefits corporations? How do they benefit? Will the media ever actually inform anybody?

    Is there any mention of the value that immigrants bring by paying taxes? And because this is so why are we only discussing human rights issues? Do immigrants make all Americans richer some how?

    Is there any discussion of how much wealth matters? So much so that misleading discussions of human rights are used to obscure the importance of wealth?

    Is there any discussion of how wealthy immigrants can easily buy access to beneficial outcomes via immigration law?

    There are many Americans wealthy enough to live in the United States yet renounce their own citizenship. Whose human rights are affected? Is this an option for less wealthy citizens or do they lose the rights wealth only affords? Is there such as thing as rights guaranteed by wealth that exceeds rights of being a citizen?

    Wealthy foreigners invested heavily in real estate allegedly displacing US citizens and driving the housing market. Is this good? Is this a human rights issue? Is this fraud? Is this just the free market that demands unimpeded flows of capital from anywhere in the world? Does this benefit Americans somehow? Is the country wealthier because we sell things to foreigners and the citizens suffer from exclusion in their basic needs via both supply and price?

    I believe in freedom.

    An important freedom is the ability to live where one wants to live.

    On the other hand, it seems wise that a country should have jobs, housing and other assistance available before it accepts immigrants. It makes no sense to tell people that they can come and then have no place for them to live and no way for them to earn a living.

    Put those two together, and I believe that a nation should strive to create jobs and housing both for its own population and such that people who want to live there can come.

    In school, economics taught there were three inputs into a business. Materials, capital and labor. The US believes in free trade across borders for materials and goods. And goes absolutely ballistic if anyone tries to say that money can’t cross borders. But the same free traders want to say that people are always trapped where they are, even when the free movement of materials, goods and capitals has destroyed the means of making a living where they are.

    America was based on the dream of people being able to move to America to start a new life. That is one of the most important of human freedoms, and if America is going to say it believes in freedom then it cannot deny this important freedom.

    HI Ron, since we live nearby, let’s meet for coffee sometime.

    You must read the Daily Post, editor Dave Price. Back in 2015, in September, you may recall the flap in Menlo Park, involving the big Pine tree that was cut down in Fremont Park, across from Peet’s Coffee.

    A clutch of tree-huggers showed up and one of them chained himself to the tree as the Park Dept had cordoned off the area. The police and fire folks showed up, and talked the guy into unchaining himself. The Daily Post got some great copy, pictures of tree-huggers and chains and Sensation!

    That was too bad, as the tree crushing him would have done the world, including trees, a world of good. The tree was a favorite of the Menlo Park kids…dozens would climb it, etc. and it did have a fetching charm with its curling trunks and branches.

    I am alert, and had noticed the tree apparently tipping. I got out my measuring tape and logged it for a few days. When it started accelerating its downward path, I went to the maintenance dept. with my numbers. They immediately cordoned off the tree and prepared to cut it down.

    I called the Daily News 3 times about it and told them of course that I was the guy who had discovered it. They refused to credit me with “saving the children.’ That is liberal Dave Price who hates my guts for various events in the area.

    Now some of the tree’s lovable limbs lie there for the kids to play on, embellished by a wood-carver who has carved a bear in its cave, a throne for the kids, and so on. No dead and maimed kids.

    I got a letter from the maintenance dept of Menlo Park, thanking me. Nothing more until I ran into the female mayor a year later and told her about it. She said she would set up a little ceremony at City Hall to hand me the keys to the city or something.

    A couple weeks later I called in and was told that that was not gonna happen…but that they had written me a letter of commendation and to come in and pick it up. I did not.

    The Word about Joe Webb had been delivered to the Mayor..

    That is the world of Liberals. I probably saved the lives and limbs of several kids, but never give the conservatives anything. No good deed goes reported by the liberals. if it was a conservative or a White Racist!

    The kids love the play area of the remains of the tree. And I enjoy watching them.

    The other thing…you must read the Daily Post. Every day there is Mexican crime reported in it, and that is only a part of it. A few years ago I did a crime study of Mexican crime in our two counties and discovered that Mexicans were doing about twice the rate of crime as white. (There are almost no blacks here anymore since the Mexicans have taken over East Palo Alto, etc.)

    I read other material that suggests a 3 to 1 crime rate for Mexicans in general compared to whites.

    The other thing I notice is that cars with 2 or more Mexican males are not tolerated by the local police in downtown, etc. I have seen them pulled over by the police. For out-of-area folks on this list, Redwood City is walking distance away from Menlo Park, particularly the Fair Oaks area…which is heavily Mexican.

    I you go into the county courthouse in Redwood City, the floor that hears the normal crime stuff is wall- to- wall Mexican. The only Whites appear to be suits/lawyers.

    I had to call the complaint line for code violations on housing issues, and was told (last week) that complaints could not be anonymous except in Fair Oaks. Does that suggest anything?

    We are also building a new jail, which will be filled with Mexicans you can be sure. The aging White folks pay it. Of course, Redwood City, my more or less hometown, has only survived the Mexicans (about 50% now) because it is the county Center. Now that the Facebook and other techie crowd has begun its invasion, the Mexicans are starting to get driven out and will go to the East Bay.

    It is interesting that only now is the County beginning to talk about enforcing health laws in the Mexican part of town…what with houses filled with Mexicans, one family to a bedroom, and garages also housing families.

    Now that the techies need a place to live, the County decides to enforce. Move the Mexicans out…ok with me, but… a few years ago I called about all of this and was told by a County flak re enforcement of occupancy rules and sewer taxes (never mind schools ) , etc…that “what did I want them to do, use Gestapo tactics?”

    Gestapo tactics are not needed when Zuckerberg Speaks, and Money.

    So Silicon Valley saves Redwood City, The Dreamers move in as the nightmare moves out. Now we got white zombies, babbling about rainbows, but they don’t shoot you.

  83. Growing up in the Chomsky household, I’m reasonably certain that the author has heard of Cesar Chavez. Not exactly the kind of guy you’d think would be promoting xenophobic Republican policies, right?

    Chavez was strongly against illegal immigration, because he had some crazy idea that a glut of poor workers with little to lose diminished the bargaining power of existing workers. Back in the day, such people were called scabs, and they were the scourge of attempts to give workers decent pay, minimally safe working conditions, and leverage against bosses who abused their positions.

    But that was a crazy time when Democrats were known as the party of the working man, and trade unions were occasionally useful for something other than crony capitalism and bullying members into voting against their best interests.

    It’s basically the one thing that even die-hard Socialists and free-market Capitalists can agree upon: an unregulated supply of anything drives down the value, whether you’re talking about dollars or human lives.

    Just as “humanitarian intervention” is used as a moral smokescreen for endless foreign wars, excessive rhetorical compassion for immigrants and refugees is a smokescreen for enriching the affluent at the expense of the political power and working conditions of everyone else. It is about establishing a permanent underclass to serve while progressively denying them both the example and the means to assimilate culturally and improve their socioeconomic position.

    In other words, it is as far from the American Dream as you can get without going full-on feudalist monarchy.

    Speech isn’t free. White nationalists, as discussed previously, are making sure speech is tightly controlled. The sham is their white nationalism. Outrage is created by the press, although there doesn’t seem to be too much to be specifically outraged about. The so-called white nationalists goal is to restrict speech since the public won’t tolerate a group that appears to be racist and hateful enough without actually doing anything illegal. All dissent will then be made illegal by public demand.

    A notably loud group from Kansas managed to stiffle dissent at military funerals. Free speech by law here means keep your distance far away. In other words go away and shut up.

Einstein was a bit of a fraud and a terrible human being. How many Nobel Prizes have been issued for Economics and how many recipients are Jewish? Dr. Nassim Taleb has some interesting ideas on these charlatans.

    Jews like many blacks have no humility and are egomaniacs, thus their belief system that they should control the world.

    They have contributed no novel ideas to western intellectual thought but are happy to merely paraphrase and relabel concepts developed previously by great European thinkers e.g. Pinker’s book is no more than an aggregation and restatement of prior, original thinkers, Jews conduct symphonies composed by towering European geniuses and so on.

    Unless we are able to pry our collective selves out of this zombified Zionist worship, this will never stop. The Zionists use whitey as their toolkit to shape the world as per their liking and in return we are “enriched” with diversity, many a times from the very nations we’ve helped them destroy.

    Now that they are aching for a war with Christian Russia, I think the days of whitey and indeed many people are numbered. Which is why I’ve left this madhouse circus long back since I don’t think it’s possible to re-program people’s mind which has been poisoned by such crap as Diversity and the notion of American “exceptionalism” pushed by the same bunch who pretends to be Leftist and right ones to fools dumb cattle like us.

    The truth is that Europeans drove out muslims and Turks to keep their precious real estate.

    We captured California, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, and whatever else in the Mexican War of about 1848. Mexico captured the area from the Spaniards, and the Spaniards captured it from the injuns.
    I think it was Buchanan who pointed out that there is a peace treaty of about 1850 wherein we compensated Mexico with about 8 million dollars. Also, there were only about ten thousand Mexicans living in these territories. How many Indians lived here before the White man?.

    There were about 50 language groups of Indians in California alone…I seem to have read somewhere. Whites took the land from Stone Age folks. Inevitability.

    I spent most of my life in South Florida, an area in which approximately 40% of the population is foreign-born and mostly Spanish-speaking. One consequence of this is that many entry-level jobs–as waitresses and sales clerks, the kinds that allow people to work their way out of poverty,-require applicants to be bilingual. After Hurricane Andrew, many Spanish-speaking people migrated north to Broward County (Fort Lauderdale) and the bilingual requirement exists there too.

    Often studies of immigration focus on recent immigrants and conclude that they take jobs Americans don’t want–such as in agriculture or slaughterhouses. Academicians, by and large, do not study what happens when the linguistic composition of a whole area changes.

    These changes are especially hard on the poor and working class. Imagine being a poor, African-American male educated in a chaotic inner-city school and trying to find a job with a bilingualism requirement in place. When I taught ESE students, I was told that it takes a year for students to acquire conversational English–when they are being taught English full time in school. Imagine the hurdles for people who are older and are not in school? What should they do for the year it takes them to learn Spanish? What about immigrants from Haiti or Brazil? Do they have to learn Spanish and English both to be economically competitive?

    It is very easy to condemn opposition to immigration as racism while ignoring the very real economic effects on the working class. Academicians benefit from immigration because 1. No one is requiring them to learn Spanish to keep their jobs and 2. There is an increased demand for their services because of the extra students.

    Note that nowhere am I claiming that immigrants are especially prone to crime or are any worse or better than anyone else. I absolutely reject those claims as untrue, especially after controlling for family composition, social status, and other variables.

    I do suspect, however, that academics are so out of touch with working-class America that they do not even think to ask the right questions to find the answers about how such Americans are affected.

    Yes, opposition to immigrants is often colored by racism; however, there are real grievances as well.

    Why is the US responsible for uniting families, when it is the immigrant who abandons his family and homeland?
    Yes, immigration can be a major, destructive force. Look at Europe.
    There is no reason why we need any more immigrants, since we have 330 million already. I don’t want groups with high birthrates turning US into China or India. We are already experiencing water shortages, more people makes it worse. More people makes lots of things worse.
    We have had loosey-goosey chain migration for 50+ years, enough already.
    “Chain migration” does not have to be offensive. “Chain” can be used in several ways, in this case it clearly describes a situation in which one migrants links to another, then another, with each new link then bringing in a wide range of relatives.

    Is it fake? Are those headlines made up?

    The one I cited, “Beyond Pro-Choice: The Solution to White Supremacy is White Abortion,” reads awfully like another philosophy that had a “solution” for a certain group of people in mind.

    Those entry-level jobs that now require bilingualism allow people to save money to start businesses or support themselves while they acquire needed skills.

    The Chomsky Brigades always side with Idi Amin. They chuckle and chortle when he says he’s the Last King of Scotland. Bibi is where he is because his brother died saving Chomsky from his Idi Amin fetish. But Idi Amin gets more respect fromChomsky than the GI Joes that fought the Bohemian Corporal.
    It matters little. Chomsky gonna hate. Morality and Christianity in particular always gets in the way of any rational discourse on Idi Amin.
    Sure Mexico is short on Idi. Pancho Villa and the Spanish Inquisition do not co-exist well with Idi and his kind. That Spanish Inquisition lives on in Mexico though you’ll find. The Non-White World is the Place where Time Stands Still.

    Is it known that Ms. Chomsky is a Zionist or a religious Jew? Most Jews are neither.

    Her opinion that illegal immigration doesn’t matter is certainly deluded.

    Thank you! There would be almost no crime in San Jose at all, were it not for Hispanic immigration. Oh wait, I used to date an Hispanic/Spanish engineer who worked for General Electric during the 1990’s, I am pretty sure he committed no crimes, excepting, maybe urinating in public during pub crawls, he was a party animal, as are most Europeans.

  131. Patricus says:

    It is remarkable that Hispanics have such a low rate of murders and assaults when the central American nations have the highest rates in the world. Somehow those who immigrate illegally just happen to be the most peaceful characters. Something doesn’t add up.
