2. Open the Floodgates
“Ever since the passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, legislation that has single-handedly altered the face of America forever, the United States has become a cauldron, not a salad bowl, of cultural and ethnic differences. Once a nation largely comprised of European immigrants, that demographic is expected to become the minority in a few short decades. And the people just keep coming.
Today, it is automatically assumed that because America got its start as a ‘nation of immigrants’ that it is somehow expected to keep its doors open forever. We are expected to forever comply with the words of the poem, ‘The New Colossus’, written by the Jewish-American Emma Lazarus, engraved on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, which says:
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
It seems the shelf life of that verse expired a long time ago. California can barely take care of San Francisco, let alone America taking care of the world’s “wretched refuse.” Perhaps we would do better than to worry about some tarnished Civil War-era statues of dead outhern generals and think more about editing that plaque”.
“The golden door” is the real reason the masses of 3rd world workers are coming to the US – remittances – dollars are worth a fortune in the 3rd world. Countries like India are building massive luxury skyscrapers off US wealth and armies of tens of millions of foreign workers + foreign corporations remit billions out of the US economy every year.
European immigrants of past centuries came to the US to build America, not suck her dry.
The future does not look good for America. We are being drained by most other world powers, and collapsing as a result.
Trump has done nothing to stop the decline.
