Letter to the editor of ‘The Economist’ regarding their cheerleading for illegal immigration

SIR — I am tired of The Economist’s repetitive fulminations against America deporting illegal immigrants (“Barack Obama, deporter-in-chief”, February 8th). After all, they have broken the law. But more significant by far is the message that any kind of amnesty sends to the millions of people trying to emigrate to America who follow the rules but are turned down.

I have worked in Thailand for 15 years and I see daily the hundreds of Thais visiting the American embassy to try to emigrate by adhering to our procedures; less than 3% gain admission. The situation is the same all over Asia and the developing world. There is little sympathy for those who don’t get a visa. Yet illegal immigrants from Mexico are to be rewarded for violating the law merely because America shares a border with Mexico.

Such a policy promotes rather than discourages illegal immigration. Nothing could be more illiberal and cruel, and nothing impoverishes America more than rewarding those who violate its laws. Few, if any, “nativists” oppose letting talented and educated immigrants into America legally.

    I oppose letting talented and educated immigrants into America legally. Their countries need such people and our talented and educated people don’t deserve to have their wages driven down, nor do any of us deserve to live as foreigners in our own countries. Fuck the Democrats. Fuck the GOP. Fuck the pope and all his faggot priests.

      How dare you forsake the multitude of blessings of cultural vibrancy and diversity! Imagine the wonderful ethnic foods and colourful costumes! You are a … a… a… wicked right wing racist! *sob*

    Well, there really aren’t that many Mexicans coming any more. Mexican fertility peaked about 30 years ago, and has been dropping steadily. Also, the Mexican economy is robust enough to keep young people at home. What we’re seeing now is more Central Americans. Fertility is still high there, and the economies are poor. That will change with time, just as it has in Mexico.

    What worries me are the vast number of new immigrants from Muslim countries. That’s going to be a BIG problem in the future.

      Maybe the muzzie scum shit can move to Saudi Arabia? It’s a mere 800 times the size of little Israel with a lot of oil. Surely they can live in the desert!

      Oh, wait, right….. part of the deal of selling oil to the West is importing tens of thousands of muzzies and spreading Islam. *oops*

    Apparently, ‘increasing migration’ is the #4 priority for reducing world poverty according to the Copenhagen Consensus Centre. I don’t recall ever hearing about this CCC, but it seems to be one of those organizations that wield a lot of influence behind the scenes: http://www.economist.com/news/finance-and-economics/21640361-debate-heats-up-about-what-goals-world-should-set-itself-2030

    There is one part of the immigration rules that is even worse than what the letter writer describes. On the pretext of cracking down on human trafficking, prostitutes here illegally can now get green cards and a substantial array of social and legal services by claiming that they were trafficked into the country and spinning a tale that supports this even if they were practicing their profession in their country of origin and even if the alleged traffickers aren’t apprehended. We can thank the feminazis and their cowed legislators for this.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder.
    Obama has an issue with math because 10,000,000 illegals with no skills that can’t read or write in their OWN language will take low-end jobs from single moms and Blacks for a mere $20,000.00 a year tops , this while having 3 or more kids in School and FREE Obama care .
    So how the hell do these people contribute when their kids cost close to $15K each in taxes to be in school along with other people funding their FREE health care ?
