Immigration today, immigration tomorrow, immigration forever? In recent times there has been much controversy over President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign-trail suggestion that we temporarily halt immigration from Muslim nations (which has been modified). The Left claims such a notion is “discriminatory,” un-American and even, most ridiculously, unconstitutional. Yet there’s a simple way to avoid this debate altogether:
Institute a moratorium on all immigration.
This is a serious proposal — and a necessary one. Consider: with the U.S. having a replacement-level fertility rate of 2.1 children per woman, immigration is theonly reason our population is increasing. As to this, our numbers have swelled from 100 million people in 1915 to 200 million in 1968 to 320 million today. And it’s projected they will reach approximately 400 million just after 2050.
Obviously, such growth involves strain on natural resources, social services and infrastructure. Yet while the Left purports to care about the environment, it also pursues open-border policies with jihadist-like zeal. But when will enough population be enough? When it stands at 450 million? A half billion? A billion? The Left likes to push “family planning.” But what about national-family planning?
In addition, more than 94 million Americans are not in the labor force, and the real unemployment rate is far higher than the government’s fraudulent figure of approximately five percent. Moreover, recent years have seen companiesreplacing American high-tech workers with foreigners (often forcing our countrymen to train their replacements, as salt in the wound). What rational case can be made that the U.S. needs more people?
Actually, there is one rational, if nefarious, case: the desire for political power. Since the institution of the Immigration and Nationality Act in 1965, 85 percent of our legal immigrants have come from the Third World. Upon being naturalized, 70 to 90 percent of them vote Democrat. In contrast, the Republicans derive approximately 90 percent of their votes from European-descent Americans. Do you see the rational case, or at least the rationale, now?
This post-1965 immigration model, along with oft-offered-amnesty to illegal migrants, has ushered in great demographic upheaval. Where our country was almost 90 percent non-Hispanic white in 1965, it’s now just 61.9 percent so. This is precisely what is being spoken of, by the way, when you hear the media and politicians talking about the “demographic changes” that are pulling the nation left.
ABSOLUTELY! TIME TO STOP, AND SEND THEM BACK!
Immigrants are the source of most evil in the United States. Always have been, always will be. But I have no doubt Trump will take care of that. He will make America great again.
If they just have an "OPEN SEASON" it will get done quicker & cheaper! This crap should've happened 20 yrs. ago! Then we would not have had that maggot BO & Michael running around the White House with those two girls that don't even belong to them! What an embarrassment to the American people!
Hopefully those you'd murder will fight back with extreme prejudice. This once great Republic doesn't need racial and ethnic bigots, especially those wearing tin foil hats..
Agreed, also, 100%
That 1965 imigration law clearly states they are not allowed to immigrate poverty to the country. This is a fact they icnore as they flow in dependant classes of people who spend their lives sucking off the American citizen tax payers. Enough already! The illegals are sucking the system dry along with the refugees which are seperate from those coming in threw the legal system.
Mooch Obama is complaining now about having a feeling of hopelessness, well how does she think 60+ million American's felt when we voted Donald Trump in as our new president? The obama administration robbed our pay checks for 8 years and handed our earnings to those who did noty earn it. Many of them reside here illegally. It's way past time to not only stop this practice but to send these moochers packing back to where they came from. And please take Mooch and O with you!
