If someone wants a good reason why U.S. immigration policy needs to be more restrictive, he need look no further than the life and career of George Soros. A native of Hungary, Soros is an immigrant and a naturalized U.S. citizen. Our country, most patriotic citizens would agree, has suffered significantly from his citizenship.

By John Vinson

For generations, the state of California was the Golden State, the Promised Land, embodying all that was prosperous and optimistic in the United States. It was, in fact, the very essence of the American Dream. But no more. Now, its schools are a wreck, unemployment runs rampant, and some of the highest taxes in the union prey on the middle class. Every year more and more of those who can leave, do. What happened to the West Coast jewel that shone so bright for so long, and now sits by helpless as its economy and culture continue to spiral download? In this thought-provoking article, John Vinson identifies the driving force behind California’s decline: wholesale, uncontrolled immigration.

The Case against Amnesty (June 2013)

By AICF Staff

This article neatly summarizes the many arguments against the current amnesty being considered by Congress. Amnesty of illegal immigrants will subvert the rule of law, making a mockery of the laws that supposedly govern us. It will provide downward pressure on wages, further reducing the living standards of American workers forced to compete with huge numbers of the foreign-born. It will add greatly to the financial burden of the federal and state governments, as newly legalized arrivals place added demands on social entitlements. America’s educational systems will be overwhelmed, as well as the bureaucracy assigned to manage the new residents. And America’s cities, highways, parks, and public places will be further degraded by a new influx of the relatives of the newly amnestied. Here in a succinct single article is the ammunition you need to argue against this dangerous bill.

 

Exposed: The Real Reason for Amnesty (June 2013)
By AICF Staff

For years the advocates of open borders–in and out of government–have sanctimoniously declared their cause to be one based on compassion and tolerance. They have smeared their opponents–those who favor tighter immigration controls–as racists, bigots, and xenophobes. In this no-holds-barred article, we expose the truth behind their goals: it is not a simple  humanitarian concern for the welfare of illegal aliens. Instead, what these liberals, as well as some “conservatives,” seek is raw political power.

 

Mechanization: A Solution to the Farm Labor Issue (March 2013)

When proposals come forward to stop illegal. immigration and deport the illegal aliens now living in the United States, a common response is that we need the illegal immigrants because “they do jobs Americans refuse to do.” This article demonstrates why that argument simply isn’t true in most cases.  In nearly every job category in the U.S., native born Americans are the majority of workers.

 

The Coming Triumph of Mexican Irredentism

By: B. A. Nelson, Ph.D

Download the PDF for FREE

Irredentism occurs when a particular people within a larger national community see themselves as separate and apart. Commonly it involves this people living along a border next to a country where people of their ethnicity are the majority. And commonly too, it involves a movement of the two separated groups to unite politically, or at least come together more closely.

Nelson provides a detailed account of irredentism in history. Many Americans imagine that irredentism could not happen in the U.S. because of our strong tradition of assimilation, but he warns that assimilation under the best of conditions is not easy and by no means guaranteed. Then he argues that if current trends continue, particularly mass immigration, an unassimilated Mexican-descended population in our southern border states could make Mexican irredentism a reality.

Ethnic Conflicts Abroad: Clues to America’s Future?

By: Glaister A. Elmer, Ph.D. and Evelyn E. Elmer, Ph.D.

A courageous husband and wife team of sociologists tackle the one world, melting pot myth head-on in this comprehensive review of ethnic conflict across the globe. Some quotes:

  • Conflict not harmony is the rule wherever and whenever two or more well-defined ethnic groups inhabit the same territory….
  • The largely unconsidered result of past and present immigration policies is that the United States is in the process of changing the racial and cultural composition of its population to a degree probably unprecedented in human history except for situations involving the military conquest of a society by a foreign aggressor….
  • The United States might eventually find an unwanted place in world headlines alongside other ethnically-divided countries such as Lebanon, Sri Lanka, India, Northern Ireland, and Israels occupied territories.

The Great Betrayal: U.S. Immigration Policy 1965 – 2012

By: AICF Staff

Download the PDF for FREE

Beginning in 1965 and continuing for decades thereafter,  elected officials in the White House and Congress have adopted immigration policies that have flooded the country with millions and millions of newcomers with languages and cultures vastly different from America’s European-derived heritage despite assurances to the contrary. About the Immigration Act of 1965, Sen. Hyram Fong of Hawaii promised, “Our cultural pattern will never be changed as far as America is concerned.” And Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts vowed, “our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually.”

But U.S. political elites either lied or profoundly misunderstood the consequences of their own policies. For America does indeed admit nearly a million immigrants legally each year, in addition to uncounted hundreds of thousands more illegally.

In this update to the original Great Betrayal, published in 1993, the authors concisely recount how America’s population is changing in direct response to the deliberate immigration policies adopted by America’s leaders.

Miami Today — The U.S. Tomorrow

By: John Ney

Download the PDF for FREE

In this monograph Ney argues that false beliefs and convictions often prevent Americans from thinking intelligently and realistically about immigration policy. One example is the notion that our country can easily absorb any and all immigrant cultures and become culturally “enriched” in the process.

Ney maintains that cultures have a powerful internal dynamics which keep them from blending easily, and when they do blend the lower elements of the differing cultures are often more likely to predominate than the better ones. Ney uses the conflicts in the city of Miami to illustrate his point, while examining the cultural impact of mass immigration throughout the U.S. He affirms that we must change our misguided views or face dire consequences.

The Path to National Suicide

By: Lawrence Auster

Download the PDF for FREE

In this ground-breaking essay that helped fuel the national groundswell for genuine immigration reform, Lawrence Auster argues that the recent emergence of bitter divisions over language and culture in schools, in hiring, and other aspects of American life — often expressed in the movement to alter our national heritage in the name of a vaguely defined “multiculturalism”— shows that America’s ability to assimilate a vast diversity of populations from around the world is not infinite.

Auster writes that our current policy of open and ever-widening immigration is leading our country into an unprecedented danger. As increasing racial and ethnic diversity makes the re-affirmation of our common culture more vitally important than ever, we are, under the mounting pressure of that diversity, abandoning the very idea of a common American culture. We are thus imperiling not only our social cohesiveness but the very basis of America’s national existence.

 

Sociobiology and Immigration: The Grim Forecast for America

By: Glaister A. Elmer, Ph.D. and Evelyn E. Elmer, Ph.D.

Authors of Ethnic Conflicts Abroad: Clues to America’s Future? (see above), sociologists Glaister and Evelyn Elmer scientifically analyze the effect of third-world immigration on the United States. Sociobiology, as they define it, is the attempt to identify the “behavioral predispositions of homo sapiens as a species,” and, further, to identify the predisposed behaviors of different races. They conclude that “current trends, history, sociological research and sociobiological theory suggest that the United States has thoughtlessly placed its future in peril by embarking upon an unprecedented experiment in the large-scale mixing of multiple peoples with highly diverse cultures in a democratic society.”

Assimilation: The Ideal and the Reality

By: B. A. Nelson, Ph.D.

In this well-researched and heavily footnoted study, Dr. Nelson, author of The Coming Triumph of Mexican Irredentism (see above), traces the history of the assimilation of various ethnic groups into American society. His findings show that historically even groups of related European immigrants, such as the Irish and the Germans, have assimilated in differing ways and at varying rates. He concludes that far from being a uniformly reliable and universal phenomenon, assimilation of different ethnicities over the years has been an unpredictable process. Open-borders advocates therefore make a naive and possibly calamitous mistake when they assume that all immigrant groups will assimilate on schedule.

Immigration and Migration — A Historical Perspective

By: John Lukacs

This monograph, by the legendary historian John Lukacs, author of more than 30 authoritative works of contemporary history, analyzes the crisis confronting America and the West presented by the influx of foreign-born from the Third World. Written in the 1980s, near the end of the Cold War, but even more topical today, this work identifies the real danger confronting the West: not attack by the Soviet Union but immigration from the Third World.

Immigration: Wrong Solution for Social Security

By: John Attarian

Everyone knows that America’s Social Security program is in trouble. A declining birth rate among the most productive citizens and taxpayers combined with an aging population mean that more pensioners in the future will depend upon fewer producers to pay the bills. Some open-borders advocates have proposed increasing the levels of immigration from around the world as a solution. Author Attarian dissects this disastrous proposal, exposing it as a simplistic fraud. Importing massive numbers of uneducated and unskilled workers will place more demands on the retirement system than it can possibly cure. In addition, it will overburden nearly all other segments of government and society, including healthcare, education, the environment, etc. What is needed to remedy the Social Security crisis is sound fiscal policy, not heightened immigration.
