Where America's Immigrants Come From

Tyler Durden's picture




 

There are over 40.7 million foreign-born residents living in America. Iceland, Bermuda, and Samoa have the lowest level of foreign-born population in the United States but it is Mexico that is head, shoulders, and torso above the rest with 28.2% of the foreign-born population from just aross the border. Russia, interestingly, is 20th (just ahead of Iran in 21st place). We can only hope not all Russian immigrants are currently HFT "traders."

Top 20 foreign-born population of the US...

Legal or Illegal, we already have an immigration and naturalization policy and laws on the books.
Ergo, the (Oppps!) Immigration and Naturalization Service.

Most white Lib's here in LA hide in the remaining white areas (Santa Monica) near the coast & in the hills. Especially if they have kids.

 

They never venture into non-white LA, which is most of it. I get all over town as an appraiser & I never see them in East LA, Watts, Compton, etc.

 

Then they vote for Dem's & bash 'racist' whites for daring to raise the issue of immigration limits, welfare reform & balanced budgets.

 

I shit you not.

One thing about libs like James that cracks me up. They don't personally sponsor any of the illegals they mourn for. Much like the global warming balogney they push...they do little if any to practice what they preach. As long as taxpayers pick up the tab they just keep a mourning and a preaching. Whoops, that's two things...

Silly delusional Tsukato. It's never that easy. 

Within Brazil, the racism concept is based on two basic factors such as the skin color and the economic conditions of the people.

Perhaps, but I can still dream of a giant favela, with no social services, save basic sewage, massive unemployment, un serviced dirt streets, heaps or cheap araki, for the natives, and tons of cheap Chinese cell phones for the locals to dance to their favorite tinny music. I imagine a day when the average man needn't worry about such mundane incidentals, like even dressing, to go out on the dirt streets and dance a jig with their neighbors. A day when one man will not look down on another, for walking around in their filthy, stained bvd's. A day when women can have children of every color of the human rainbow. In short, like MLK, "I have a dream"!

"This is true, crocodile tears as long as the garden is done, car washed, pool fresh and house spotless - all by invisible minions." 

Only an ignorant white libturd who doesn't live in California would think that the millions of illegal immigrants living in California are all "invisible minions."

Here's the reality:

In 2013, Democrat Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a group of bills benefiting illegal immigrants. He signed a bill that makes it a crime for someone to threaten an undocumented person with deportation and forbids local law enforcement personnel to detain for deportation immigrants who are here illegally if the crimes for which they have been apprehended are minor and nonviolent.  Under the new law, employers who threaten employees with deportation will find themselves facing stiff fines and, possibly, the loss of their business licenses. Another bill he signed allows illegal immigrants to apply for and receive California driver's licenses. The most recent bill he signed allows people who are here illegally to apply for professional licenses. 

http://www.npr.org/blogs/codeswitch/2013/10/07/230183623/undocumented-im...

Los Angeles County officials believe that by the end of 2013 illegal immigrant parents will have received $650 million in welfare benefits for their native-born children, according to a CBS Los Angeles report:

When did you live California - 60 years ago? It's obvious you haven’t been to LA or the rest of California for decades. There are entire communities in California where English is not the primary language.

"To a certain class of people they are certainly invisible minions."

When they are the majority of the population of many communities, they are NOT invisible. They are not invisible even to the wealthy 1% who live in gated compounds along the coast. Former California Governor Arnold Schwarenegger was once an illegal and had he a child out of wedlock with his maid who once was an illegal.

Gawd sylvia, I don't mean literally invisible. Ellison wrote a book about being black in america called "invisible man," spoiler - it isn't literally about an invisible man.

Rich libs & cons seem to see immigrants largely the same way. If immigrants were coming over the border en masse to underbid all the white collar jobs there would be giant walls erected around la & ny overnight I'm sure. 

I am an invisible man. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me.

Gawd James_Cole, you're a dumb libtard. The reason that rich libs and cons are NOT erecting giant walls is because legal and illegal immigrants ARE coming over the border in masse and underbidding all the white collar jobs--IT SAVES EMPLOYERS MONEY BECAUSE OF ALL THE COMPETITION!  Silicon Valley is full of immigrants—legal and illegal!

Once again, in 2013, Democrat Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a group of bills benefiting illegal immigrants. He signed a bill that makes it a crime for someone to threaten an undocumented person with deportation and forbids local law enforcement personnel to detain for deportation immigrants who are here illegally if the crimes for which they have been apprehended are minor and nonviolent.  Under the new law, employers who threaten employees with deportation will find themselves facing stiff fines and, possibly, the loss of their business licenses. Another bill he signed allows illegal immigrants to apply for and receive California driver's licenses. The most recent bill he signed allows people who are here illegally to apply for professional licenses. 

Rich libs and cons want illegal immigrants here. They have made it easy for them to stay and work here without fear of deportation.

"My point is if the unemployment side of the chart were equally high down the line the walls would be up." 

You're crazy if you think that rich libs and cons care about high unemployment rates and that they would want to build walls to keep out illegals if the unemployment rates were higher. 

No walls were put up when the unemployment rates sky high a couple of years ago.  No walls will EVER be put up to keep out illegals! THE ELITES WANT THEM HERE! 

Your problem is that you are a lazy leftist elitist who thinks you know it all! No doubt you have lived on some form of government entitlements your entire life?

Yes, this, plus sharing a land border.  The US is isolated by water from everyone except Mexico and Canada; that raises the barrier to entry for non-Mexicans in and of itself.  Cuba and the other sources of Latin American immigration are fairly small and wouldn't be able to supply many immigrants anyway, while Mexico is fairly populous.  That leaves Canada and Mexico as the major possible suppliers of immigrants, and there's no demand to leave Canada because they have a functioning state and a decent economy.  Mexico, on the other hand, has difficulty providing basic security and order, and the wealth disparity there is immense.  If the Mexicans had a useful (to the people) government and hope for pursuing happiness in their own economy, they'd stay on their side of the border.

The solution to the US immigration problem is convincing Mexico to reform itself.  The Mexican people need to feel that they have control over their government and their own futures.  Anything else, be it fences or patrols or Ihre-Papiere-Bitte style checks inland, is a bad joke at best and more likely a pretext for domestic oppression within the US.  Immigration can't be fought any more than drugs or terrorism, but the precondition for the problem -- the desire to emigrate from Mexico -- doesn't have to exist.  It does exist because not fixing problems like endemic corruption and economic malaise is easier than fixing them, just like emigrating is easier than taking control of one's own country.  And, it's not something the US can directly fix, although there are probably ways that it can help.  In the long run, a Mexico that's more desirable to its own citizens could make for a much stronger North America, provided that the US doesn't do something incredibly stupid to earn Mexico's resentment in the process, which, given US history with Mexico, it almost certainly would.

No. The "solution to the US immigration problem" is to dismantle the 1965 Immigration Act. The Jews worked for 80 years to achieve the U.S. 1965 Immigration Act -- the purpose of which was to deliberately counteract America’s white European ethnicity, limiting immigration to a Third World influx, so as, in their words, to "make America safe" for their people.

Why?  Because, say spokesmen for the Jews, only in a culture where there is no strong ethnic majority are the Jews “safe.”

In the words of Charles Silberman in 1985, “Jews are safe only in a society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups.”

It’s demographic warfare:

And on December 2012 -- America reached a landmark point as, for the first time in its modern history, most of the babies being born in America are non-white.

“Almost from the time when the US Immigration Act of 1965 abolished the ‘national origins’ standard for immigration into the United States, a small band of Marxists and left-leaning radicals was working to exploit the new law and the new masses of immigrants that soon began to arrive in its wake as political weapons against the United States.” – Samuel Francis, 1994

Dr. Wayne Lutton, author of The Social Contract, writes: “Against the public interest, at the very time that Americans were adopting population stabilization in their personal lives, Congress opened the door to massive population growth by the 1965 Immigration Act. Historian Theodore White, an admirer of Lyndon Johnson, confessed that the 1965 Immigration Act was ‘probably the most thoughtless of the many acts of the Great Society.’ He went on to admit in his book, America in Search of Itself (1982), the changes brought about by the 1965 Immigration Act may end up being key contributing factors in ‘What could become a catastrophe—the tide of immigration, legal and illegal, pouring into this country. For the under swell, neither the census nor any other authority can provide fully reliable measurements. One starts with the obvious: The United States has lost one of the cardinal attributes of sovereignty—it no longer controls its own borders....’

"life is an IQ test"

that might be the worst misuse of the IQ test i've seen yet.

if success is defined by money, power, social influence, they can all be attained without much above average intelligence. inherit money, manipulate people, and be aggressive is as good a formula for success as IQ.

given that formula, is it any wonder psychopaths make the best CEOs?

The problem is, people who spend their time trying to obfuscate regarding IQ so as not to face truth - all the nonsense about It dosen't matter, If you judged a fish by it's ability to climb a tree it would be classed as an idiot etc etc is wrong.

The problem is it does matter. If all people are passed the same test and groups achieve differenctly, repeatedly, then it is clear that there is a difference in IQ on average. look at the difference in civilization accross the globe - it's staring you in the face but you've been brainwashed to not believe your own eyes.

I will give you temperament, but without intelligence you are not getting very far unless you are basicly other people's pet (looking at Judge Sotomayer and half the Obama staff including Bama himself).

the symbols and natural phenomemon that a brazilian aborigine and a stanford geologist are exposed to affect their test results, they do matter. you can't give everyone on the globe the same test and say 'look, these ppl are smarter.' it's all in the framing, the same way propagandists frame their narratives.

that there is a difference between 'civilizations' is a reflection of power relationships (aggression, physical dominance), most of which were built on discoveries made by a few individuals (gunpowder, penicillin, the steam engine), or harnessed from other parts of the globe, as in the US, not 'proof' that some people have higher IQs than others 'on average.' that the majority of people in well-off 'civilizations' can can piggy-back on the discoveries and victories of a few exceptionally intelligent people doesn't mean as a group they are smarter.

material circumstances are all that has stared me in the face during my travels across the globe... and yes, i've been to every continent except australia. that tells me nothing about average IQ.

next your going to tell me where "all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average" and I'm going to laugh. American exceptionalism, my ass.

once, whilst attempting to join mensa, i took the requisite iq test. one of the questions was a simple math problem, but using 'british' coins. i had no idea about british coins, so failed that particular question. had it been in usa coinage, it would have been easy. so the iq tests are culturally biased, indeed. ymmv

Dump English Criminals on Australia (a desert) and they create Sydney

Dump illiterate Chinese tin miners on malaysia and they create singapore.

Dump japanese farmers in brazil and they dominate in a couple of generations.

The end of the day, we all started living in hut, some developed higher intelligence. You saw the evidence on your travels but refused to accept what was staring you in the face and went with the "wet streets cause rain" hypothesis.

as for this "piggy-back on the discoveries and victories of a few exceptionally intelligent people doesn't mean as a group they are smarter"

yeah, the bell curve works on the basis that the very smart will be low in numbers. But unless the bell curve is up in the 100 average range, you're not going to get any super smart people - barring a freak of nature. Anything less then 90 average seems to be the limit of being able to manage modern civilisation.

Twenty-nine percent of Americans — about 47 percent of blacks and 48 percent of Hispanics — live in households receiving means-tested benefits, as reported recently by George Will. The current Hispanic population of the US is 53 million.

Illegal immigration is America’s greatest economic and cultural problem. And immigrants from Mexico are the biggest part of that problem for several reasons. In general they are low skilled and are arriving to generally be added to welfare rolls and/or to displace Americans from their jobs or lower their acquired economic gains.

They are culturally opposed to the white European foundations of the Constitution with its Bill of Rights and its separation of powers.

They are opposed to assimilation into the American culture.

And, lastly, the great waves of illegals from Mexico are added to the huge increase in legal Mexican immigrants granted in the years following the 1965 Immigration Act. This last point means that illegals are joining legals in large Mexican cultural areas in America which are strong supporters of  the Democrats’ social welfare system – a serious economic problem for the American free enterprise system.

Robert Rector and Dr. Jason Richwine in a special summary on immigration explain the fiscal cost of unlawful immigrants and amnesty to the U.S. taxpayer:

Executive Summary

Unlawful immigration and amnesty for current unlawful immigrants can pose large fiscal costs for U.S. taxpayers. Government provides four types of benefits and services that are relevant to this issue:

  • Direct benefits. These include Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance, and workers’ compensation.
  • Means-tested welfare benefits. There are over 80 of these programs which, at a cost of nearly $900 billion per year, provide cash, food, housing, medical, and other services to roughly 100 million low-income Americans. Major programs include Medicaid, food stamps, the refundable Earned Income Tax Credit, public housing, Supplemental Security Income, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
  • Public education. At a cost of $12,300 per pupil per year, these services are largely free or heavily subsidized for low-income parents.
  • Population-based services. Police, fire, highways, parks, and similar services, as the National Academy of Sciences determined in its study of the fiscal costs of immigration, generally have to expand as new immigrants enter a community; someone has to bear the cost of that expansion.

The cost of these governmental services is far larger than many people imagine. For example, in 2010, the average U.S. household received $31,584 in government benefits and services in these four categories.

James fails to realize that it is percentages of race that counts, not totals.

There are more whites on food stamps, in that whites, for the temporary time being at least, are the largest percentage of the population. To report SNAP figures any other way than percentages is inaccurate and disingenuous.

The Obamacrat, trying to make the case in 2012 in “Welfare: A White Secret” that whites are the welfare culprits, tripped himself up when he wrote: “Although the numbers show that Whites get the biggest chunk of public aid dollars, welfare critics still charge that Blacks shouldn’t collect 33 percent of welfare benefits when they only make up 12 percent of the general population.  It is the same with Mexicans.

checked out the statistics there, not even close. Somehow the chart puts welfare spending at $110 billion.

Also to be counted as recieving welfare in the percentage, unemployment counts. So a white person recieving unemployment for a month counts the same as a black or hispanic who has been on welfare for 15 years.

You make some odd generalizations that I'd like to see supported.  When you say,

They are culturally opposed to the white European foundations of the Constitution with its Bill of Rights and its separation of powers.

you do realize that the separation of powers is explicit in article 116 of the Mexican constitution, and the contents of the US bill of rights are baked into the Mexican constitution, right?  Freedom of speech and press are articles 6 and 7, assembly in 9, the right to bear arms is 10, and so forth.  They formed their constitution in 1917 after a series of coups, of which the last saw the US ambassador helping install a dictator.  As for "white European foundations," the current Mexican constitution largely traces back to the 1824 constitution of Spain, with a number of anti-clerical changes thrown into the mix to curb the power of the Catholic Church.  What other foundations are you suggesting would go into a Mexican constitution?

Too bad he left the world so early.

`America is a nation built by and mostly populated by immigrants.`

WRONG.  Or should I say: generically inspecific to the extent it's incorrect.

America is a nation built primarly by white, European, Christian immigrants who risked a great deal in coming here and whose value systems and morals differ greatly from the current crop of immigrants coming here to suckle at the teat.  The immigrants today risk nothing coming here, receive largesse at the expense of an increasingly small taxpayer base, and squat in a system they neither created nor appreciate while all Americans reap the rewards of a massive and ever-increasing national debt incurred to support and garner the votes of the people receiving the largesse.

Its a big deal because these thieves are taker, not givers. They choke ERs, fill our schools which are paid for through our taxes, get the EBT, skirt paying taxes by working under the radar for cash, etc, etc, blah blah, I could go on..... My taxes that they suck off us only go up.

I hated it when I would go to PTA meetings at my kid's school and have to endure the spanish language segments. I always wanted to jump up and scream: I CAN'T UNDERSTAND YOU!! over and over....

I get so pissed when I see people hiring them off the esplanade across from Home Depot, which is just great for potential buyers to see if you may want to sell your house. The folks that hire these illegals should be subjected to public ass beatings. I watch the cops drive by and do nothing.

Sure my statement sounds bigoted, but it's real life around here. I want my country back.

"America is a nation built by and mostly populated by immigrants."

European immigrants in the past came here legally when there were no entitlement benefits or safety nets available for immigrants.

It's a different story now.

A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents just in LA County for 2013:

I wish the US would encourage more emigration from Europe given their issues. It'd be nice to have more Europeans in the country to enhance the true stock of the country. Nothing against Mexicans or Latin Americans as I tend to find them to be generous and warm people but the amount of immigration into the US has been way beyond a healthy number.

 

As correctly stated, the welfare state exacerbates the problem by attracting those who can't hack it on their own. End that first and these problems auto-correct. Unfortunately politicians and bureaucrats would lose lots of power so this will never occur.

reconquista going according to plan.

 

Wish we could get some latinos from better hispanic countries.

 

(I could do with some more Cuban and Puerto Rican women....I love them.)

>>>Wish we could get some latinos from better hispanic countries.

Latinos from the better hispanic countries have limited reasons to want to live in the USA.

A female Peruvian friend became pregnant while legally residing in the USA on a short-term visa, and her friends were congratulating her on now being able to remain in the US permanently.

She and her husband (also non-US) left the US prior to giving birth, with the attitude of "why the hell would we want to stay in the US permanently?"

Canada 2%.

You may want to look at making Canadians think it's worthwhile to try.

Preferrential treatment. Although I'm told that all I have to do to emigrate to the States is to go there and not leave. Makes me wonder what all that paperwork/green card bullshit is for. Oh yeah, it's for the white people.

How many AMericans want to live in Mexico? Just a matter of time before the US becomes Mexico at which point people flee the US for a better life.

Nice at least to see Samoans are few and far between, as I know from personal experience they are by far the absolute laziest people on earth.  I dare anyone to find a group of people more lazy than Samoans.

Aww man, why pick on Samoans? What did they ever do to you? Just cause they are big doesn't mean they are lazy.

As I know them, I call it rather efficency. They are not lazy, they are time & subject efficient. Their speed depends upon the importance of the subject.

Wha choo talkin about Willis?  Samoans built my rock wall for half the price of the other bids, and it's sturdy without any mortar showing through.  Yeah, it took them three months instead of three weeks but in the interim, they had a house flood, a divorce, some other family issues, broken-down truck (3X) and countless other excuses (I mean acts of God.)  Plus, wasn't Joe Paupau (the throwin Samoan) one of the hardest working QBs ever?
