Immigration: Cui Bono?

Immigration is always a tricky subject to address honestly. Racists and the far right have dominated the debate and appropriated the language necessary to make even a well reasoned argument. Nevertheless, I think it is about time that some aspects of immigration, in the context of it’s supposed benefits (cui bono ?) are more widely understood and if by doing so I upset anyone, then I hope it will suffice to say that it is not my intention to do so. If you are from the USA you may like to know that the UK, with a population of 63 million, is one fifth of that of the USA, but the USA has a land mass 38 times bigger. In the USA there are 32.3 people per square kilometre, in the UK it is 250.2 per sq km.

It is a little known fact that if the immigration numbers were excluded from the UK population figures then the population would be fairly stable with only reasonable growth.

The Graph, above, shows the Total Fertility figures. These are the amount of children, on average, each woman has. Since the early 1970s the average has been less than two, you’ll notice an upturn since 2002, that’s a cultural change due to immigration [more on that below]. I want to consider why it is that the UK birth rate has remained at that low rate for 40 years.

There are a couple of reasons and they should be well known, in a country where there is an extremely low child mortality rate and which is relatively wealthy women tend towards smaller families. The poorer the country, the higher the child mortality rate, then, as a rule, the higher the fertility rate.

But a fertility rate below two does not mean that the population should be shrinking, because improved health care has increased life expectancy.

This all looks encouraging. The UK, like many developed  nations appears to be naturally compensating for increased life expectancy and improved health care with lower birth rates. This seems to indicate that we have reached a subtly new stage of human evolution of a mature civilisation.

But there is one big problem with all this, for some people at least. If you have a developed economy the economic growth based on efficiency is harder to find. It is far easier to get economic growth, especially if your economy is dependent of the domestic service sector, as the UK is, if you artificially increase the population of the country.

11.3% of the UK’s population was not born in the UK. Only 3.6% are from EU countries, 7.7% are from outside of the EU. So, if the UK’s population is 63 million, 7.119 million are not born in the UK, 2.268 million are from the EU, and 4.851 million are from outside of the EU. Without immigration the UK population would be less than 56 million, far less if you were to take away the children born to immigrants in the UK only in the last 10 years. [remember that upturn, top graph, in the Total Fertility statistics from 2002 onwards ?]  (source)

How many times have you heard that immigration is good for the UK economy ?

But all the benefits of this increased population go to the top 5% and all the costs are laid at the door of the other 95%.

For the top 5% the UK is nothing more than a market. Increase the size of the market and they increase the size of their profits, it really is as simple as that.

Don’t blame the immigrants for taking advantage of the situation in a perfectly legal way.

Blame the people who sold our country for their own profit!

I don't know about the UK but in the US your assertion would be incorrect since it is also small businesses like restaurants, landscapers and construction companies who are profiting from immigrant workers.

Also, you have avoided an important factor (likely the most important factor) that should be obvious to any non-politically correct observer and that is the notion of divide and conquer: bring in as many disparate groups into a country as possible, watch them go at each others throats and against the "government" and then use the ensuing mayhem as the pretense for the establishment of a police state and the totalitarian New World Order.

If you pick apart the fertility numbers by economic status, you start to see a more disturbing picture. Women who receive cash assistance ("benefits") are reproducing at rates two to three times the rate of other women in the society, and the current underclass of benefit-dependents will double by the year 2020 based on reproduction alone. Vast swaths of the North country and entire towns are benefits-dependent. Now add to that a heap of benefits-seeking immigrants and you have a real disaster looming not so far off in the future.

My comments:

I don´t think that reason why the UK and other European countries after WWII (unlike Japan and later on South Korea) have allowed immigration on a large scale is that it generally benefits big business. Big business can always find new markets and cheap labour abroad. For some companies immigration and a more densely populated country might even be bad. Take the prefabricated home industry, for instance. If a country gets more densely populated, prices of sites for building will most likely increase. More people will live in flats and less people will live in their own prefabricated homes.

 

But I agree that there is no significant general economic reason for big business minimize immigration. On the other hand there is no significant general economic reason for big business to increase immigration in order make more money.

 

I don´t think that the explanation to the difference between Japan/South Korea and Europe as regards immigration is that big business in general benefits from immigration. I also doubt that small business owners are the explanation. I also doubt that the reason is that some people want to establish a police state or a totalitarian state. I agree that the degree of democracy and free speech we still enjoy in Europe can not be taken for granted. For instance, Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi who launched the idea of a European Union should probably be described as a dedicated anti-democrat (read his book Praktischer Idealismus). Furthermore, a majority of the populations in the British and French empires, respectively, were not entitled to vote in the early post-war years. But I don´t think that modern followers of Coudenhove-Kalergi need a totalitarian state in order to have their own way.

Subject: Fwd: Please Read

In a quest for information I have found this, and think it appropriate to forward. Please read it and if you or anyone you know can produce information that will balance or defeat these ideas, then please share with me.  My goal is to gain knowledge not to spread untruths.

This author has in depth knowledge. So let's wake up.
Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book:

Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.

When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

Here's how it works:

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of Halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature Halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:
Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4% (True - there are 2 systems of taxations here)
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrassas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% Muslim states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos.. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend Madrassas. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

'Before I was nine, I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel". -- Leon Uris, 'TheHaj'

Today's 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world's population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this century.

Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the henhouse. The wolves will be herding the sheep.

Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

Obama appoints two devout Muslims to Homeland Security posts. Doesn't this make you feel safer already?

NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...? Just wondering...

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn't this make you feel safer already??
That should make the US ' homeland much safer, huh!!Was it not "Devout Muslim men" that flew planes into U.S. buildings 8 years ago? Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood ?

Also: This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish.

Therefore, after much study and deliberation...perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. -- They obviously cannot be both 'good' Muslims and good Americans.The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.
Can a Muslim be a good soldier??? Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, opened fire at Ft. Hood and Killed 13. He is a good Muslim!!!

Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. SO FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.  Please don't delete this until you send it on.

Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:
1) Theologically -- no . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia
2) Religiously – no… Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)
3) Scripturally - no… Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
4) Geographically – no… Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
5) Socially - no… Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews..
6) Politically - no…Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and     destruction of America, the great Satan.
7)Domestically - no… Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34)
8) Intellectually - no… Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
9) Philosophically - no… Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression.. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
10) Spiritually - no… Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly Father, nor is he ever called ‘Love’ in The Quran's 99 excellent   names.

Call it what you wish, it's still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future.

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in: United States -- Muslim 0.6%  Australia -- Muslim 1.5%  Canada -- Muslim 1.9%  China -- Muslim 1.8%  Italy -- Muslim 1.5%  Norway -- Muslim 1.8%

Another attack on non-whites. My neighbors are Muslim. I guess living here in peace for 30 yrs. is not integrating into society peacefully. Madrassa--literally translated means "school". If they learn the Quran only, what does a degree in theology say? Halal is no different than Kosher for the Yids. You should hope the food you eat would be 1/2 as clean. Corporate food, I think not.

But one thing is true: The group with the highest birthrates will take over in the very long run, if they those people don't cut each other's throats that is.
However, birth rates are already imploding in Iran and Turkey for example...

Regarding immigration, if the immigration laws can be ignored by certain groups then why have the fucking laws? If I take offense that some laws can be ignored by certain groups, that automatically classifies me as a racist? WTF is wrong with this picture?

Can I pick and choose which laws of our land I can ignore?

If our laws are subjective choices depending on who you are, then we are no longer governed by the rule of law but by the rule of men.

I demand my equal opportunity rights to ignore the laws of my choosing!

Pladizow, Europe may or may not turn into a Muslim continent within a few decades - extrapolating current trends is not always a good predictive tool.

As I recall, within the last century both Germans and Slavs have made an organized and determined effort to remove differing ethnic groups from their area of influence, and were stopped only by outside force.  I have the same advise for a Muslim owning property or a business in Germany today as I would for a Jew in 1935: sell and leave while you still can on your own terms...

Clearly the use of the word 'only' in your statement means that it cannot be a true statement. However, such is the sexual repression inherent in the mind-bogglingly stupid religion the sex-starved young muslim males have a much higher propensity to rape than their equivalent n-n mulsim peers. Please read Chris Hitchens book "God is not great" for an insight into this issue.

This charity is OBJECTIVE, not a bunch of fucking retard anal obsessed rascist arseholes like you lot. On the matter of those who rape (in the UK) they have this to say;

Myth Men of certain races and backgrounds are more likely to commit sexual violence.

Fact There is no typical rapist. Studies show that men who commit sexual violence come from every economic, ethnic, racial, age and social group. 85% of rapists are men known to their victims.

My sincere wish is that you get imprisoned for being the token "whitey" in possesion of dope and get severely gang raped by a whole gang of retard WHITE redneck rapists.

Fuck you all.

Perhaps in the UK that is the case, not so in the US. FBI figures show a huge difference in the ethnic breakdown of rapists, with black males being many times more likely to commit that crime.

Statistically speaking, they are also many more times likely to commit murder.

Lednbrass

don't waste your time with smiler, he is pointedly failing to mention that over here in the UK  a special crime unit that has been set up to deal with pakistani gangs grooming young girls

Thankfully decent muslims are not in denial because of ideology as smiler is:-

Head of the Ramadan Foundation Mohammed Shafiq sums it up best:

'There is a significant problem for the British Pakistani community, there is an over-representation amongst recent convictions in the crime of on-street grooming, there should be no silence in addressing the issue of race as this is central to the actions of these criminals. They think that white teenage girls are worthless and can be abused without a second thought; it is this sort of behaviour that is bringing shame on our community. I urge the police and the councils not to be frightened to address this issue, there is a strong lesson that you cannot ignore race or be over sensitive.'

I find it interesting that smiler wishes a brutal sexual violence upon those whose opinion he disagrees with

No one should have to accept being raped (everyone is equal), but some are more deserving of it than others (some are more equal than others)....  according to smiler....

Zealots will be the ruin of all mankind

The concerns about crime are legitimate, but pointing at "Muslim rapists" in such general terms is no different than pointing at "Catholic child abusers" or "White Paedophiles".  These crimes are very much multi-cultural and it's a dostortion to tag the crimes to race or religion.

The graphs themselves are enough - we have high unemployment in the UK.  We cannot take any more people because we can't afford to.  No need for anything more inflammatory than that.

Employers in the US are forced to compete against government and government largess for labor.  How much more do you have to compensate in order to overcome the option of just waiting on a government handout?  In the absence of government competition, the employers can find the workers they need.  The book 'Grapes of Wrath' illustrates what people will do for work when there are no other options.

Immigration here in the USA IS a real problem. It is not the main problem but it exacerbates the problems that already existed....

We don't have enough money to house the prisoners, to school the children, to build the roads & bridges, to enlarge the hospitals, that more people require....More people, means consuming more energy, more food, more traffic, more overcrowding, less free space.

More people means higher prices, because more money is competing for the goods and services that are in limited supply.....

Right now we have approx 1 million legal new immigrants here each and every year. Up to a million more illegal immigrants, and most of those are not border crossers, but Visa overstays. Overstays from the middle east and the former soviet union...They get off the plane and already have their Medi-Cal card on hand for free stuff. The city where I work is a sanctuary city in So Cal that has the highest percentage of its residents of any city in Kali on some form of gov't assistance.

In order to maintain a good sperm count, I will need to limit the schedule to 4 or 5 women per day. It's important to avoid scuffing or callousing the dispenser, too.

After one month, my small contribution to the fertility problem should be about 150 or so, expectant British mothers.

No such a thing was not possible, as the blobbing-uppityness of 19th century Sons of Heaven racism presented a hermetic barrier to the penetration of foreign devils into glorious and perfect realm of imperial Middle Kingdom golden la-la land certainly never led to even one impoverished Chinese emigrant seeking jobs in benighted total-pro-slavery-yet-slavery-abolished United States of Easter Island Time-Traveling Destructionism firmly.

Mexicans and other hispanics are a mix of Spanish, Asian, Mestizo, and Northern European. Some Mexicans are mistaken for Asian. Zimmerman is a case in point.

You'll see from that graph that the immigration graph takes an uptick beginning in 1997. This was the year that the disastrous, fascist Labour party took office and implemented Andrew Neathers policy of unbridled immigration. Prior to this policy the country would (naturally) swing left to right in opposition to the flavour of the incumbent party. Every time an election was held the new party would reverse some of the policies of the old. Labour hatched a fiendish plan to prevent that from happening the next time they were put out of power. Andrew Neather proposed throwing the country under a bus by allowing unbridled immigration. This would have two effects:

1) The swing back to the other side after losing the next election would be less severe if not halted due to the dilution effect.

2) The Labour party increased its voting base by the number of immigrants upon whom it lavished every conceivable welfare benefit.

Well said.

Not only did the policy create "natural" Labour voters from the grateful immigrants; it also ensured a higher level of unemployment for UK citizens who could then form the core of the "welfare dependent client layer" who would always vote for "more free stuff".

Kudos to the guy who dreamed that one up - 17 years in power for TB and GB ;o)

At least from an American standpoint, it's not bad if an immigrant is productive and pays taxes.  Given fiscal state of most western nations, immigration may be an easy way of keeping the social security ponzi going a bit longer.  That only works if you document the people coming in though.

It would be interesting (and totally not politically correct) if authorities took a more active aproach to immigration and try to engineer it in a way as to maximize tax revenue.

In the UK a large proportion of the immigrant population work for the government. Government employees do not pay NI (National Insurance) or PAYE (Income Tax). Their salary slip says that they do but the entity paying those taxes is the same entity which receives them. Therefore the wage slip is a fabrication. No tax is actually paid. Therefore, they are an overhead, to be paid for out of the productive part of society (private sector).

No wonder you're extinct. Somebody has money deducted from their salary but they don't pay tax? Where do you think the money goes? It goes to support the mentally handicapped in their homes and to process the vast amounts of manure that they generate. 

That's you by the way.

Without "services" you can kiss goodbye to 72% of UK GDP. Farewell to the NHS and 1.7 million jobs. To replace that lost 72% I suggest a Jurassic park theme attraction with you being the tethered goat, or diplodocus if you prefer.

If I take £5 out of my left pocket, give you a piece of paper to say that I paid it to you but then took it back and then place the same £5 in my left pocket, did you actually give me any money? The piece of paper says you did but no money changed hands. Pouring out your vitriol does not change maths. Thats the beauty of maths. It doesn't rely on your opinion and is not changed by vitriol.

Please re-read my post. I never said that we didn't need services. I said that state employees do not pay tax. I stand by that statement.

If you're talking about LEGAL immigrants, I agree.

But if you're including ILLEGAL immigrants, that's way wrong.  The fact that many of our biggest businesses are able to employ illegals decreases the "market valuation" of all forms of workers everywhere.  When certain groups are truly disposable and exploitable, everyone competing for any low-level position is forced to compete with a "second-class" level of the labor-force.

The American citizen is being driven deeper into exploitation with the threat of illegals to perform their jobs.  This happens with H1Bs, too, but to a far lesser degree because most of the increased overhead of dealing with "legal" employees is paperwork and regulations, not so much wages.

The next joke in your act will be that US prisoners laboring for 1 yuan per hour are not slaves. They are students in government sponsored vocational training.

Your offuscation and hypocricy is much of skilled. Ever think of applying to US government employment? Your skills would be well suited, as they are now for Chinese citizenism government propaganda. After all, US citizenism is just Chinese citizenism looking back at you in the mirror.

A luxury that actual slaves in US citizen nations had not.

If fox conn employees were slaves, that would be another mistake by Chinese on their path to US citizenism...

Hopefully, they are not slaves and this can be called a progress for humanity, US citizen style.

A true story to go with all the hyperbole.

A friend of mine is a fully qualified electrician. When London won the Olympics he applied for a job working on the Stratford site. He didn't get it because the majority of British applicants were not needed.

Firms employing only qualified British workers were underbid by companies employing "bozoes" (as they are known in the trade, a corruption of "Bosnian" although the term apparently applies to anyone from East of Danzig).

Essentially, only a fully qualified electrician can sign off jobs but those same jobs can be done by unqualified persons, so long as the work is "checked" and signed off by the qualified person.

So, thousands of unqualified, undocumented and non-tax-paying "bozoes" did all the work and only a few qualified, tax-paying Brits were required to sign off the work.

Shine a little light for y'all?

Chinese Citizenism = denialism and chronic inability to self-indict.

In Chinese Citizenism, all sins and all faults are to be projected onto others --- this way, all blobbing-up can proceed without guilt or shame, much like lack of shame in making shit on side of Chinese road.

Well personally: I'm in favor of some basic labor solidarity, which makes me the target of a lot of hate around these parts.

Point noted.  I don't speak much about conditions on the ground in Europe--no knowledge.  I did watch East Indians completely overwhelm the IT industry in NYC a few years back. 

It sure did save a lot of businesses a lot of payroll and cost a lot of businesses a lot of productivity.  C'est la vie.
