The Case AGAINST Mass Immigration and the Case FOR Nationalism
We have always done it right in the United States. We have worked, we have learned, we have built ourselves into a superpower.
So our punishment is to house millions of individuals who are in no way, shape, or form, worthy of our kindness – they are simply impoverished.
Many assert a falsehood that mass immigration into the U.S. will aid in the fight to reduce world poverty, and this is a lie – it is simply a mistruth we tell ourselves to feel good.
Every year, on average, the U.S. brings in around 1 million immigrants. We have been doing this since 1990.
The big question we must ask ourselves is: what individuals deserve our kindness? A wonderful video breaks down a lot of the primary numbers that are relevant when we look at this issue.
According to the Numbers USA video above – the World Bank says that the desperately poor in our world make less than $2.00 per day. There are over 3 billion people in this world who make less than $2.00 per day. Africa accounts for 650 million, India accounts for 890 million, China accounts for 480 million, and the rest of Asia accounts for 810 million, and Latin American accounts for 105 million. These numbers are staggering and equally impossible for a single nation like the U.S. to make any impact on.
The funny thing about our 1 million immigrants per year statistic is that we don’t pull our immigrants from the desperately poor populations, we pull them from countries like Mexico, which is the epitome of the “better off” poor. Mexico is horribly poor, but they are also in a position where they can immigrate and adapt to the world around them when they do. Others are not so fortunate.
Almost 5.6 billion people live in impoverished states that are worse off than Mexico, and yet we bring Mexicans into our country. Mexicans are in a better position to fix their country than most, and yet we allow their best and brightest minds to come into our country rather than reform their own.
Our globalist elites – Obama, the Clinton’s, Warren, Schumer, Pelosi, the Bush family, Soros, neocons and liberals – they promote the idea that those 1 million immigrants that we take in are part of an effort to tackle world poverty. It is not. We are taking in people who are hindering our ability to help those in our nation who are poor, who are vulnerable, who are living third world lives within our first world country.
In truth, we are harming these impoverished individuals overall. The 1 million immigrants we take in are of the better educated, the most motivated, the ablest and willing to immigrate, and these are the potential difference makers, the individuals who could improve the lives of those in their countries of origin. The real difference makers in the global humanitarian effort are the people who stick around and help their countrymen.
