Immigration Problem? No, We Have A Bigot Problem

August 25th, 2018

We don’t have an immigration problem.

CATO study found native Texans commit 15% more crime than undocs.
We have negative immigration with Mexico.
40% of Mexico imports to US have US parts
1/3 of total US trade is w/ Mexico, Canada, and Brazil.
Back before we militarized our border, cyclical immigration allowed Mexicans to stay during harvest, and go home afterwards. But during 80’s, fueled by xenophobia, we closed border and that forced undocs to stay and start families here. Thus, of the 11 million undocs here, as many as 3-4 million would have gone home.

It’s about racism. Simple.
