In the May issue of First Things, writer Matthew Schmitz argues that support for mass immigration by U.S. elites often stems from their disdain for average Americans. He observed that “Confident that I opposed all forms of bigotry, I failed to notice that support for migration is characterized in no small part by contempt. Our elites portray working-class Americans as violent, hateful, and incompetent. They revel in their suffering.”
Some examples Schmitz cited were as follows: “In a 2017 column for the New York Times, Bret Stephens proposed, ‘So-called real Americans are screwing up America. Maybe they should leave, so that we can replace them with new and better ones.’ In 2017, William Kristol said during a discussion with Charles Murray, ‘Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in? . . . I’m serious.’ In 2018, Max Boot wrote in the Washington Post that Trump’s supporters were “grumpy old white people who live in rural areas and lack college degrees.” In another column, he said that he wanted to ‘keep the hard-working Latin American newcomers’ and ‘deport the contemptible Republican cowards’ in Congress who had supported Donald Trump. Jennifer Rubin, his colleague at the Post, tweeted her agreement.”

A report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) argues against the claim that America must have mass immigration because we face a “labor shortage.” The author of report, Jason Richwine, observed: “[W]hen employers complain of a ‘shortage,’ they really mean a shortage of people willing to work for the (low) wage that employers would like to pay. The percentage of working-age Americans not in the labor force remains significantly below the level from the year 2000, and employers should strive to bring those potential workers back.”

Mark Morgan, who was chief of the Border Patrol under President Obama, says that the Mexican border is more out of control than ever. He explained, “[T}this isn’t just a crisis, this is a crisis like we’ve never experienced in the history of this country since we started tracking numbers. And again, we’ve had that talk and that’s because of the demographics. There’s still this very false talking point out there that — well, back in the ’90s, the numbers were higher — over a million.” Well, first of all, again, you got to remember they were Mexican adults, we were moving, deporting 90 percent of them. With the broken asylum laws and other loopholes that are there, we’re seeing 65 to 70 percent increase in family units, and because of those broken laws, we’re allowing them in. This year, we’re expected to hit a million. . . . That’s driving this crisis, driving our resources, being overwhelmed. We have to address it.”

The surge of illegal aliens at the border making bogus asylum claims has overwhelmed U.S. authorities and forced them to release these aliens into the United States. President Trump has suggested that they be placed in sanctuary cities, i.e., cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration agents to deport illegal aliens.
The leaders of some of these communities make a big point of stating that they welcome illegal immigrants. Trump’s proposal would give them what they claim to want, even though the number might be more than they can handle.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders explained the administration’s position as follows: “We’re looking to see if there are options that make [this plan] possible and doing it in a full and thorough and extensive review. The president likes the idea and Democrats have said they want these individuals in their communities. Let’s see if it works, and everybody gets a win out of it. . . . [T]his isn’t the ideal situation. The ideal solution is real simple for Congress particularly Democrats in Congress to sit down with the president, do their jobs and help us stop this awful crisis that’s taking place at our border.”

Three Republican senators have reintroduced the RAISE Act. It would reform our current policy of legal immigration which makes the family connections of immigrants the chief priority for admitting new immigrants. This policy, often referred to as “chain migration,” greatly pushes up the numbers of legal immigration, now at the highest sustained level in our history.
The RAISE Act would replace chain migration with a merit based system for selecting immigrants. The sponsors are Tom Cotton (R-AR), David Perdue (R-GA), and Josh Hawley (R-MO). Sen. Cotton stressed that the mass immigration undercuts wages and opportunities is not good for American workers. He noted that “For decades our immigration system has been completely divorced from the needs of our county and has harmed the livelihoods of working-class Americans. ”

FOX News commentator Tucker Carlson commented on the wide deployment of U.S. troops, with one notable exception: “As of Tuesday night, we have nearly 175,000 active duty personnel serving overseas, American troops are posted in 158 different countries. For perspective, there are only 195 countries total on the entire planet. We’re almost everywhere. Keep in mind there is no world war currently in progress. This is what we’ve signed up for in peacetime.
“And yet, you may notice that there was one place American troops are not. They are not on our southern border protecting us. They should be, we could use them. Tens of millions of illegal immigrants already live here in the United States. We don’t know the exact number. We don’t even know who they are. They just show up and a hundred thousand more are showing up every month.”
