The West is in a major-league mess when it comes to immigration. Enlightened conservatives have known this for many years. The ostriches are just coming to their awakening, or else heads remain firmly buried in the sands of political correctness.
The pro-immigration narrative in many quarters has gone as follows. We need immigrants to grow our economy and do the jobs our own people won’t do, but don’t worry: nobody who wants to emigrate to our nation desires to change our legal system into an authoritarian structure. This policy platform does not discriminate between educated and uneducated immigrants; in fact, it tends to prefer the latter, as they have negligible wage bargaining power and will do the supposed “jobs Westerners won’t do.”
