New York Times writer Bret Stephens declares that the mass deportation of American “nonimmigrants” would best benefit the United States. Stephens writes,
They need to return whence they came … I speak of Americans whose families have been in this country for a few generations. Complacent, entitled and often shockingly ignorant on basic points of American law and history, they are the stagnant pool in which our national prospects risk drowning.
Given that America is only a few generations old, he is, of course, speaking of Americans whose roots are European, especially Anglo. White people.
His main points proving that nonimmigrants have become useless to America are:
- Nonimmigrants commit more crime.
- Nonimmigrants lack serious academic achievement.
- Nonimmigrants are losing their Christian faith.
- Nonimmigrants start less businesses.
- Nonimmigrants have more illegitimate births.
- Nonimmigrants are declining in numbers.
Now, statics could easily be found that dispute some of these points, if not all of them. Such is the of nature statistics. This information is all but useless because the important questions that need to be asked are not being asked.
- What forces caused nonimmigrants to abandon the educated, family-oriented, English-speaking Christian culture of their forefathers?
- What convinced them that America was no longer worth appreciation?
- Since conservatives failed to protect nonimmigrants from this decline, why do they believe that they can protect immigrants from those same forces?
- Once the immigrants who will replace the nonimmigrants become as useless as the nonimmigrants they replaced, then what?
Stephens also states that he is a “conservative columnist,” revealing that the label of “conservative” no longer has any meaning.
