The Wall Is Racist

A gut-wrenching report in the Wall Street Journal today details the horrific violence, including torture and murder, suffered by women at the hands of men in Central America, particularly in the countries from which come the migrants trying to get asylum in the United States. That we have an administration that wants to punish these legitimate refugees facing death in their home lands is simply monstrous. You cannot call yourself the “richest” or “greatest” anything if you can turn away people fleeing from rape and murder.

Those men sound just great. I have no idea why anybody would want to build a wall to keep them out.

“‘When you have a woman, she becomes property for you, and only for you, no one else,’ said Wilfredo Cabrera, who is 24 and recently left a gang. The safe houses the gangs use to store weaponry, cash, and contraband are also used to imprison girls, some as young as 12 and 13. Gang rape is not uncommon.” One woman was kept in the basement of a safe house and regularly raped.

Racism is the only reason I can think of that anybody would object to having these gentlemen around.

  1. “I have no idea why anybody would want to build a wall to keep them out”
    Progressive opposition to the wall is connected with immigration folklore (that isn’t really true but which many Americans across the political spectrum believe or want to believe)
    The basic idea is that the simple process of immigration… makes people better (yes, it sounds dumb when I put it like that).
    That is, if you let in a bunch of boneheaded macho criminals into the US the melting pot will work its magic and within in a few years they’ll turn into socially liberal guys who are in touch with their feminine side.
    Of course its pure nonsense but if you scratch at what people say it’s there.

    1. Are you serious? God, this is nuts. Not that I’d put it past some people to believe something this idiotic but…

      Immigration is always trauma, even in the best, most comfortable cases. It never makes you better. It makes you more traumatized. Say I, somebody who immigrated twice.

  2. I’ve always been told that immigration is good because that’s where all of the entrepreneurs and knowledge workers of the future come from (e.g. Steve Jobs was a 2nd generation immigrant from Syria). Immigration is supposed to be good for the economy because they build the Silicon Valleys of the future.

    However, I recently read a report that a significant percentage of 1st generation immigrants in California live below the poverty line and are not improving their situation. If this is true, it seriously weakens the argument for immigration.

    I am generally in favor of immigration. But only if the immigrant can assimilate and become economically self-sufficient and have a high propensity for self-reliance and success. I don’t see immigration as a net benefit if the immigrants themselves do not meet these standards. Instead, they are just baggage that we do not need.
