The President is taking a lot of heat for allegedly asking why the bipartisan group of Senators crafting a DACA bill are baking in protections for immigrants from “shithole
” third world countries such as Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries.
Let me just say, on the record, that it’s about time someone stood up for America and our interests domestically. We should not allow the practices and traditions of the third world to creep into American society. We don’t need to import citizens who treat women as second-class citizens. We don’t need to import people who don’t know basic hygiene. We don’t need to import people who have zero skills and will inevitably end up on welfare rolls hurting our schools and public infrastructure.
We, the American people, cannot afford to educate the world and we cannot afford to employ the world. We also can’t afford to let our quality of life degrade because we import people who do not understand the basic tenets of western Democracy or the concept of being self-sufficient.
The President now denies making the “shithole” comment, but I think he should double-down and put every Senator on the record. Why do they want to import more unskilled labor? Take that back to their constituents and explain it. Why do they want to import more people who will drain public services? Let them explain, on camera why it’s perfectly fine to accept and protect immigrants from Africa who practice female genital mutilation.
This article from Newsweek in 2015 perfectly illustrates why the President is 100% correct:
African immigration to the U.S. has doubled every decade since 1970, with more than 1.8 million African-born people now living in the U.S., according to Census data. Immigrants from Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Egypt, all countries that perform FGM (also known as female circumcision), accounted for 41 percent of total African immigrants. According to the latest numbers, nearly one in five girls at risk for FGM in the U.S. are from Egypt, which tops Somalia as the most at-risk country.
The last large-scale study of FGM in the U.S. was released by the African Women’s Health Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in 2004 and found more than 227,000 American women were at risk of or had undergone FGM. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is set to publish long overdue federal data in the coming months; the last federal survey on the FGM in the U.S. was done by the Department of Health and Human Services in 1997 and found roughly 168,000 women had undergone or were at risk from FGM, based on census data from 1990.
Why do we want this third world practice in our country? Why would we import people with a third world mindset? This is not America and this is not the America that I want to live in.
The President is absolutely correct when he says that our immigration should only exist to benefit the American people. Let the best and brightest into our country and let them innovate and develop their ideas and products in America.
Mr. President, don’t ever apologize for standing up for America.
