In less than a decade America will reach the point of unprecedented immigration going back a century, so why can’t we discuss it?
Unprecedented immigration is coming soon, both legally and illegally. Unprecedented immigration means our country has never experienced anything like it. The ramifications should at least be considered.
Yet this is a typical liberal reaction to any attempt to enforce existing immigration laws.
Well, if any law regulating immigration is a human rights violation driven by racism then there’s nothing to do but accept the unprecedented immigration. But is that reasonable?
According to the Washington Examiner,
The legal and illegal population of foreign-born immigrants living in America will break a 100-year-old record in just six years — and will continue to smash records for the rest of the century, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data.
Already 13.5 percent of the U.S. population, immigrants will surge to 15 percent in 2023, according to Steven Camarota, the director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies.
At a conference to discuss the impact of immigration on public schools, he said “the share will hit 15 percent in just six years and that will surpass the all-time high in the United States reached in 1890.”
And if unchecked, he added, “the share is projected to increase throughout much of this century.”
As we build up to unprecedented immigration numbers, public school are already feeling the impact. Breitbart recently reported,
While working-age Americans face increased workplace challenges in a global market from overseas workers, professionals, and researchers, CIS [the Center for Immigration Studies] shows how Americans’ children are losing classroom resources to the children of migrants invited by the federal government.
Immigrants and the children of immigrants comprise 93 percent of the student population Miami’s Northeast Dade County, 91 percent in Jackson Heights plus North Corona near New York City, 85 percent in Westpark Tollway, in Houston, Texas 78 percent in Annandale and West Falls Church, in northern Virginia. The districts are dubbed “Public Use Micro Areas.” and average roughly 20,600 students.
Nearly one-in-four students enrolled in taxpayer-funded schools in 2015 were from “an immigrant household.” In 1980, that share stood at only one-in-thirteen.
Over 59 million migrants entered the U.S. in the past five decades. The foreign-born population stood at roughly 42.4 million, or 13.3 percent of the U.S. population, in 2014, according to a 2015 CIS estimate. The Census bureau predicts that the foreign-born population is set to increase 85 percent by 2060. The U.S. is the most popular destination in the world for immigrants and attracts 20 percent of all the world’s migrants.
President Donald Trump hasn’t said anything about reducing legal immigration. He has merely promised to enforce laws that regulate immigration. The Left (including the mainstream media, of course) has responded with outrage and hysteria.
The racism smear is not credible. If conservatives had their way abortion would never have been legalized, so that there would now be many millions more African-Americans today. Each one would be a native-born U.S. citizen and conservatives of every race would be overjoyed.
We should stop the hysteria and rationally discuss the issue.
