The Weirdness of Illegal Immigration

Set aside for a moment all the controversies over illegal immigration—the wall, deportation, amnesty, Donald J. Trump, “comprehensive immigration reform,” etc. Instead, contemplate what happens in a social, cultural, and economic context when several million immigrants arrive from one of the poorest areas in the world (e.g., Oaxaca) to one of the most affluent (e.g., California). For guidance, think not of Jorge Ramos, but of the premodern/postmodern collision that is occurring in Germany, Austria, and Denmark.

The first casualty is the law.

    Immigration is immoral. If they weren’t already going to hell for rectal faggotry, the priests and bishops and popes of the Catholic Church would be going to hell for their support of immigration.

    How has it helped anyone in the world to turn California into lawless Mexico?

    • Beats me, California is the American Dream destroyed.

        It was closer to a nightmare when we toured California.

    VDH’s description of his community sounds like a backwater Mexican town — no law, no standards. This is what happens in an invasion: the foreigners take your territory and turn into theirs by cultural means.

    Not the least of the law violations is the tax evasion of employers paying their help off the books.

      I would think that DonJohn’s businesses are rather dependent on it.
