Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

The toughest question of all

The only one that matters, when you get right down to it.

As Capitol Hill Republicans attempt for — what, the eighth? ninth? — time in the past two decades to jam through an amnesty that their voters have explicitly, loudly and repeatedly said they do not want, it’s worth asking a question that is rarely raised:

Does the United States — population 320 million and rising — need more people? If so, why?

And if so, why these particular people? Why illiterate, primitive Muslims who loathe Western Civ and consider its “decadence” an abomination before their warped “god”? Why unskilled, impoverished Mexican peasants with nothing useful to offer our society, possessing a demonstrated willingness to violate our immigration laws in order to come here and soak up resources, contributing nothing useful to our country?

Has any American ever spent a single moment of his or her day thinking, “Gee, I wish we had more drug mules, low-level cartel dupes, MS 13 killers, unemployable low-IQ indigents who don’t speak English and refuse to learn it, and sundry rapists, thieves, alcoholics, ISIS terrorists, murderers, welfare cheats, and surly unassimilables to liven up the place”? Other than among libtards pushing a barely-concealed political agenda and bought-and-paid-for CoC Republicans—for whom the “wretched refuse” are useful props and cheap labor respectively—where is the demand for such people?

To most ears, the question sounds blasphemous, which illustrates the rottenness of our immigration debate. Actually, “debate” is far too generous. One side has made sure that there is no debate. Good people want more immigration, and bad people object or raise questions. An inherently political issue has been effectively rendered religious, with the righteous on one side, sinners on the other.

Just as they always do, on this and every issue.

So again: Why do we need more people? For the extra traffic congestion? More crowded classrooms? Longer emergency room and Transportation Security Administration lines? Higher greenhouse-gas emissions?

We know how more immigration benefits big business and the Democratic Party. No one has yet convincingly explained how it benefits the American people as a whole. That’s the foremost consideration that should drive our immigration debate, and that’s what should determine our immigration policy.

And in a country with a sane and self-respecting population, it would. Surprising that this was published in the God Damned WaPo. I didn’t bother with the comments, I must admit; I’m pretty sure I already know what they’re like. New category, too: Immivasion. Shoulda done it a long time ago, I guess.

  1. It’s not that the Left thinks the U.S. needs more people. They need different people than the ones who are the end result of generations of free Americans. They need new people from cultures where a supreme government is part of their natural history, and obedience and servility to the State is part of their makeup.
