The Economist: Battle Against Diversity Has Already Been Lost

Economy, Globalism, IMMIGRATION, Multiculturalism

The Economist gloats that the “battle for diversity has already been lost”. Who cares about the native population’s social fabric. It’s all about GDP baby:

The influx of Hispanics to the town, and hundreds of unfashionable cities like it, illustrates how much they have changed America over the past three decades. The Hispanic population has risen ninefold since the 1960s, to around 60m. Its members, many of them second- and third-generation immigrants, are dispersing across the country, driving growth and changing the social fabric wherever they go. While the white population is on the cusp of declining, most states have flourishing Hispanic communities. North Carolina, which had around 40,000 Hispanics in 1990, now has almost a million.

One county now “employs over 100 Hispanic public servants, with a premium on bilingual doctors, nurses and social workers.”

More gloating.

Emergency At The Border? Depends On Your Definition Of ‘Emergency’

It’s all in the definition of an emergency. To the progressive Demopublicans, an endless stream of uninvited migrants swamping the country is not an emergency. Open borders are a good thing, never an emergency.

Dallas Times:

They came in pairs, by the dozens, hundreds. In one group, as many as 400 immigrants crossed the border here in a single, massive group.

Many are families. And some would soon sleep for the first time on U.S. soil — but out in the open, under the stars, because federal agents are having a difficult time processing them and getting them to shelter.

“What we’re seeing is something I haven’t seen in at least 10 years,” said Joe Romero, a veteran U.S. Border Patrol agent.

And yet, when asked whether he was witnessing an emergency on the border, Romero paused and kept his eyes on the road. He and his partner drove slowly Wednesday in the shadow of a fence, long stretches of it lined with migrants waiting to be transported to begin the process of seeking asylum.

To The Economist, the fact that there are fewer individuals crossing unimpeded into the US than in years past implies that … there is no emergency.

If America has a border crisis, it comes not from any sort of invasion—in the year to September 2018, the authorities caught 396,579 people trying to cross the southern border, fewer than half as many as in 2007

Logic is not a strong suit, these days.

as of September there was a backlog of 319,000 pending asylum cases. Between 2010 and 2017 the number of asylum claims filed annually rose from 28,000 to 143,000, with many coming from Venezuela, Guatemala and El Salvador. Political instability and violence in Central America pushes people north. But some are also drawn by America’s inefficient asylum system, which lets people stay and work while their claims are assessed.

The real problem is structural. America’s immigration-enforcement system was designed to cope with the sort of migration that historically came from Mexico—single men looking for work, eager to dodge immigration police. It is not suited to today’s flow, which consists largely of families and children eager to present themselves to police so they can claim asylum. Sadly, ambitious immigration reform has eluded Washington for years, and this administration is unlikely to take up that poisoned chalice (see Lexington).

NEW COLUMN: The Trump ‘Shithole Countries’ Bygone Era

NEW COLUMN is “The Trump ‘Shithole Countries’ Bygone Era.” It’s now on WND.COM and The Unz Review.

Essentially, “once a country transitions to “shithole” status, it is well-nigh impossible to make it great again. … And once a populist president takes dictation from his globalist daughter … well, you know the rest.”

MORE:

“Donald Trump went into a gathering of special interests, on March 6. It was comprised of Goldman-Sachs Democrat Ivanka Trump, American multinational CEOs like Apple’s Tim Cook and assorted Chamber of Commerce lobbyists.

The president of the United States (POTUS) then emerged with assurances to all those lowly American workers sick of rising wages and growing employment opportunists. He was now fully committed to the importation of still more foreign workers to “give … to large companies.” Yes! He listened! Deplorables were getting sick of winning.

Ivanka, who clearly calls the shots on the un-American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, sermonized blithely about retraining American workers (who don’t have daddies to hire them).

Last year, when the same kind of cabal tried to make Trump dance to its drums, POTUS responded with his notorious “shithole countries” epithet. He was not bringing in people from, well, you know the rest.

All this made me long for the time Gen. John Kelly, formerly White House chief of staff, was present to stop first daughter Ivanka from, as the general put it, “playing government.”

Nostalgically, I traveled back in time to survey the Trump “shithole countries” designation—and destinations. Was he proven right in his aversion to accelerating the tipping point in our own country?

Haiti is located in the Caribbean Sea, east of Cuba. The country is forever convulsed by political or natural disasters. In January of 2010, this, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere—where four out of five people live in poverty and more than half in abject poverty (NYT)—was struck by a massive, magnitude-7.0 earthquake.

The rescuers, spokespersons, geological surveyors and geophysicists; the missionaries, medicine and military men and women; the aid-deliverers—most all were Westerners. Without the West, Haitians would no longer be hobbling along in their post-apocalyptic zombie land.” ….

UPDATE III (3/7/019): Putting Ivanka First And The American Worker Last

Business, Donald Trump, Family, IMMIGRATION, Labor, Welfare

United States Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, formerly White House chief of staff, used to complain how sick-and-tired he was of the first daughter, Ivanka Trump, “playing government.”

Then he was … gone.

Every person of substance who opposed the Jarvaka organism’s globalist, leftist agenda has been pushed out of the Trump administrator, starting with Steve Bannon.

As I wrote last year, “What Ivanka Wants Ivanka Gets.” And Ivanka is an awfully ambitious, busybody globalist, who likes for her agenda to Trump that of the American worker. Or, as patriot Lou Dobbs averred, Ivanka is among those who “have served the president and the nation so poorly.”

Naturally, the first daughter heads her father’s administration’s American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, together with major corporate CEOs whose prime motivation is replacing American workers. What a joke.

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 06: U.S. President Donald Trump delivers remarks as Apple CEO Tim Cook and Ivanka Trump look on during a meeting with the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board inside the State Dining Room on March 6, 2019 in Washington, DC. The board, co-chaired by Ivanka and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, is tasked with developing a strategy to revamp the U.S. workforce for well-paid, in-demand jobs and with promoting private-sector investments in workers.

This is the clincher. As Trump parrots, “We’re going to have a lotta people coming into this country. We want it. …” [What’s new?] He is parroting the Camber of Commerce, which is lobbying to reverse the rise of labor costs (read wages for the working man) and a return to the policy of cheap labor.

UPDATE I (3/7/019): Lou Dobbs: “Trump White House has ‘lost its way'”:

Dobbs called Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Tom Donohue, who was present at the meeting, an “enemy” of the Trump administration.

“That Mr. Trump would advance the interest of the globalist elites ahead of our citizens would be a tragic reversal on any day,” Dobbs said. “But today, on the same day the Commerce Department reported the United States had the largest trade deficit in our history … it all means the White House has simply lost its way.”

The longtime host concluded by saying that the path Trump is on will break “the nation’s heart” by siding with the same people who have “fed the swamp for decades.”

“The nation’s heart will be, after all, broken by the very same people who brought 50 years of consecutive trade deficit and the export of millions of middle-class jobs and who have fed the swamp for decades,” he added.
