One of the talking-points of the globalists is that we must flood the country with millions of immigrants right now, because demographics. And we are dying off so fast that we don’t have time to vet them – even if they are tuberculosis-ridden jihadis, the borders must be thrown open to all comers.
However, the demographics argument can be refuted with one word: Israel.
In 2015, the U.S. Patent Office awarded 3,804 patents to Israel, and 3,415 to India. Soaking wet, Israel has 8 million people, while India has 1.3 billion. Clearly, when it comes to progress, population means nothing.
And what about geopolitical power? Remember back in 2009 when Vice President Joe Biden was trash-talking Russia? Here’s a quote:
“Russia has to make some very difficult, calculated decisions. They have a shrinking population base, they have a withering economy, they have a banking sector and structure that is not likely to be able to withstand the next 15 years, they’re in a situation where the world is changing before them and they’re clinging to something in the past that is not sustainable.”
And what has happened since then? The Russians steamrolled the Obama/Biden administration in the Ukraine and Syria. And considering their victory in Georgia, they are on a three-war winning streak against the USA, which has more than double the population. And if you believe the Democrats, Putin kicked them right out of Washington by seizing control of our presidential election with superior cyber-war skills.
The hyper-xenophobic Japanese have essentially zero immigration, and are often cited as a people dying off. And yet, Japan still sports a $4.7 trillion economy, the third-largest in the world behind the USA and China. Not too shabby. Does anybody really think the wheels will fall off of Japan if they don’t embrace mass-immigration?
But what about Social Security? Who will pay into it when we are all too feeble to work? Don’t we need mass-immigration to keep Social Security afloat? Well, if that were the real reason for our mass-immigration policy, then why don’t we have an age-limit for immigrants? According to the Migration Policy Institute, the median age of an immigrant was 43.1 years in 2013 – halfway to retirement age.
Also, think about what happens when a 45 year-old IT worker is replaced with a 25 year-old immigrant from India. The American stops paying into Social Security because he no longer receives a paycheck. And since the Indian is paid much less (the whole reason for bringing him in) he pays less into Social Security. So, there is a net loss of revenue to the program; the difference, of course, being diverted into corporate profits. Not only that, but once the Indian gets his green card, he can sponsor his parents to come here, thus worsening our demographics! What’s more is that some immigrant seniors qualify to receive Social Security. As of 2010, there were 5 million senior immigrants in the country.
Now, if you intend to operate a slave state, then yes indeed, mass-immigration is the stuff. Or if you are trying to stuff the ballot box with Democratic votes, then mass-immigration is the proven elixir. And those have been the two guiding principles of our immigration policy.
By and large, the scare-stories about demographics that you read in the media are flat-out propaganda – just like the self-driving car hype.
