DAVIDSON: Immigration and Cultural Preservation

What number of immigrants can be effectively assimilated?

Democrats want to flood the country with iIlegals, hand them all sorts of benefits, and induce them to someday become Democrat voters. Here is a quick quiz, however. Which U.S. president said these words verbatim, at one of his early State of the Union addresses? Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama, or Trump?

“All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public services they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens.”

“In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan. We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.”

President Clinton took this stance which seems out of character when compared to the Democrats of today. Roughly 61 million immigrants, for an overall increase of 18 million since the year 2000, currently reside in the U.S. including their American-born children. Based on various estimate, of that total, about 15.7 million are here illegally.

As President Clinton noted above, we are all rightly disturbed. Population and immigration researcher Steven Camarota notes, “These numbers raise profound questions that are seldom asked:

* What number of immigrants can be assimilated?

* What is the absorption capacity of our schools, health care system, infrastructure, and labor market?

* What is the effect on the environment and quality of life from significantly increasing the nation’s population density?”

“With 45 million legal immigrants and their young children already here,” he ponders, “does it make sense to continue admitting more than one million new legal permanent immigrants every year?” President Clinton didn’t think so.

One in Five

Our longstanding immigration pattern changed after 1970. Back then, the 13.5 million immigrants represented one in 15 U.S. residents. Since 2000, with rising and largely uncontrolled numbers of immigrants, the pattern has changed. Today, about one of every five U.S. residents is an immigrant, but possibly that figure might even be higher.

These immigrants, immediately handed a federal basket of goodies, will vote in the direction that those who applaud mass immigration have steered them.

Camarota observes that the “number of immigrants and their young children grew six times faster than the nation’s total population from 1970 to 2015.” In short, we have been culture-swamped. Did you get to vote on having the immigrant population here grow six times faster than the total population?

Cultural Preservation is Not Xenophobia

People who have lived here their entire lives have rights to the preservation of their culture, the same as a Laotian, a Rwandan, or a Norwegian has to theirs. Rather than imply that those who want to see order restored in the face of immigration challenges are xenophobic, perhaps we all need to give strong consideration to these kinds of questions:

1. How does the increased pressure on social services as a result of escalating immigration reshape our tax structure?

2. How have other nations fared after they launched a wealth redistribution effort like ours?

3. Historically, what other nations survived such an onslaught?

4. If the survival rate is ominous, how are we going to fix the situation here?

5. Who specifically will do the job?

If we don’t know that answers to such question then, obviously, we have no business adding to the problem as a result of ignorance, laxity, and the quest to pursue a political agenda. Unless we strive to support the health, well-being, income, and prospects for our citizens, we have no business rolling the die concerning their welfare.

A Right and a Responsibility

In the words of the late Barbara Jordan – the first African-American woman elected to the Texas Senate, and the first woman to serve Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives – “It is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest.”

Have you wondered yet how the flu just happened to magically disappear? That’s not opinion. It is fact, apparently. In the words of Matthew McConaughey’s character from “Wolf of Wall Street,” the flu is fugazi (it’s a woozy, it’s a wazzy…fairy dust). If you still don’t believe that people are assigned covid, then you’re not paying attention. Here’s a quick example, for ya: This author knows a person who went to get tested, the place ended up taking too long so she had to leave early (without being tested) – she later received a notice that she tested positive. Funny how that worked out, huh? Check out Fauci ripping Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) for daring to get his state back on track… https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1367510351827369985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367510351827369985%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F03%2Ffauci-rips-texas-governor-reopening-businesses-ending-mask-mandate-video%2F From Fox News: Texas’s Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday said he planned to open the state next week “100%,” roughly a year after the coronavirus pandemic broke out throughout the U.S. Abbott issued an executive order that rescinds many of the state’s previous orders, allowing all businesses in the state to fully reopen and revoking the statewide mask mandate as of next Wednesday.

If you voted for a pro-choice, anti-American, beta male, weak-on-the-border presidential candidate last November, who hurt you as a child? Who taught you so poorly in your youth? Shame shame. From Axios: Fresh internal documents from the Department of Health and Human Services show how quickly the number of child migrants crossing the border is overwhelming the administration’s stretched resources. Driving the news: In the week ending March 1, the Border Patrol referred to HHS custody an average of 321 children per day, according to documents obtained by Axios. That’s up from a weekly average of 203 in late January and early February — and just 47 per day during the first week of January. The same documents, dated Tuesday, say the shelter system is at 94% occupancy and expected to reach its maximum this month. LOOK: H/T: Right Scoop
