Breitbart: The United States should absorb as many as 11 million immigrants each year into its economy, NPR “Planet Money” founder Adam Davidson writes in The New York Times Magazine. His proposal would double the current U.S. population in only 29 years to over 637 million people.
“If largely open borders were to replace our expensive and restrictive lottery system, it’s likely that many of these immigrants would travel back and forth between the United States and their native countries, counteracting the potential brain drain by sharing knowledge and investment capital,” Davidson says. Unlikely, considering that the U.S. grants citizenship to the children born to aliens who violate immigration and can sponsor chain-migration of their most distant relatives.
Extrapolating from a study conducted by economist David Card that claimed importing 125,000 Cubans into Miami, Florida, in 1980 had “no measurable impact on wages or employment.”
Opinion: Adam Davidson conveniently left out the very measurable impact on crime in Miami when Castro opened his jails and mental institutions in 1980, accounting for an estimated 40% of the 125,000 refugees.
Also add to that the very measurable impact on economic assistance (welfare, WIC, etc.) paid for by our own citizens. I know because I was there.
The insulting comments of ‘jealousy and hoarding’ against working Americans is malicious and character assassination. The majority of working Americans who pay their taxes and have some disposable income for their pleasurable activities and purchases are far from jealous and hoarding. They’re the ones contributing and volunteering in charity work and give back plenty to the less fortunate.
‘Open borders ‘means the eventual end of the United States as an economic and military superpower; separating the world into four powers of the last days.
King of the North: Russia, Iran, Turkey and the Arab-Islamic alliance (Ezek. 38-39)
King of the South: Egypt, Africa and Islamic North Africa (Dan. 11:40)
Kings of the East: China and Southeast Asia (Rev. 16:12)
Western Alliance/Revived Roman Empire/Beast Army of Antichrist: (Daniel 2:40, 7:7) (Rev. 17:12)
An economically neutered US superpower, combined with Mexico and Canada (North American Union), could easily be absorbed into the Western Alliance of Antichrist.
