In previous decades and centuries the immigrant populations have done the following; either stuck out the understandable and predictable prejudice and discrimination that comes with any sizable influx of immigration, or they have returned to their countries of origin.
However the current wave of immigration distinguishes its self in two major ways. First those who are coming here are first and foremost the most the most class less of the countries that produced them. We are becoming a dumping ground for the worse that the world has to offer and our closest neighbors to the south are using our all too open border to relieve themselves of their most useless population. America once had standards of who came over, now those standards like everything else that is anti-egalitarian are attacked and vilified. Heaven forbid that we determine who may and may not come over our borders based on some standards beyond one’s ability to swim at night.
The other and more pressing issue is the sentiments of those that are coming here. To them we are a cow to be suckled from, we are to be used and abused. It is the stated sentiment of many pro-immigration groups that come here that we, the White European Population, need to leave the land that we have fought and died for all because some class less thugs demand it. [cite groups] Before those that came here wanted to say, they loved what America promised to them and they were loyal to that ideal and the country that proposed it. Even in the Japanese concentration camps pro-American sentiment could be found. Ted Nakashima write in his book “Concentration Camp, U.S. Style”
Compare that to the current sentiments of groups that have not been rounded up en mass, have not been persecuted to the same extent as the Japanese were at that time.
You don’t see groups like La Raza or the Brown Barrett’s asking, “why wont you let us help?” no it is more like, “why won’t you give us free everything?”
Nakashima also displays the class dichotomy between immigrants now and then.
“Our family is almost typical of the other[s] … here at the camp. The oldest son … was educated at the Uneversity of Washington, has a master’s degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and is a scholarship graduate of the American School of Fine Arts inf Fountainebleau, France. The second son is an M.D. … I am the third son … an architectural draftsman.” – Nakashima
Do you see the current wave of immigrants having or being able to obtain that level of education. These people end up as janitors and construction workers for a reason. They can’t do any better.
However there is another issue that I want to tackle with this article, the “anchor babies”.
One of the worst things that a parent can do to a child is make them an anchor baby for them. First and foremost they are using the child as a tool, they do not respect the humanity of their children merely what their birth in a specific spot can get them in terms of special treatment from the US government.
For the children as they develop they must make a choice, either treat the country that has given them citizenship like their parents did, as something to leech off of, or they must attempt to brave the ever increasing amount of anti-immigrant sentiment. Neither is a good or easy path, and ultimately it falls to those who not only broke the Laws of the US but used their children as mere tools to help them do so to bear the responsibility of these actions and the moral blame.
The citizens of the US are not to blame for rejecting the masses that have immigrated here. We want to preserve our culture and our traditions, and it becomes ever harder to do that when an unruly mass of low class proles come here and demand that we accommodate them.
If the economy was not a train wreck, if these people wanted to assimilate, and if they were not merely a classless mass seeking to leech off of us. Then integration might be possible, however we share nothing with these people and they prove their callousness by using their children as tools. Many want to compare this wave of immigration to what we have experienced in the past. They are wrong in so many ways. Are there more factors, like globalism, corrupt governments, and other issues? Yes, the reasons for immigration are complex, but throwing our gates open to the masses is not and has never been a good idea, and it is only recently that anyone has considered doing so.
In the end any illegal immigrant is just that, illegal.
