Unintended Consequences

In 1999 I had to take a diver­sity course dur­ing my final semes­ter of col­lege out east while com­plet­ing my first mas­ter degree. It was here that I learned of the new view that immi­gra­tion into the US should resem­ble a stew instead of a melt­ing pot. This con­cept greatly dis­turbed me even then, and we are now con­stantly exposed to the dan­gers of a lack of assim­i­la­tion. Although cul­tural dishar­mony threat­ens our nation’s secu­rity, the unin­tended con­se­quences now pose an even greater threat to the mil­lions of ille­gal immi­grants within our bor­ders who insist on being separate.

On Mon­day the Trump admin­is­tra­tion announced the end of Tem­po­rary Pro­tected Sta­tus (TPS) to 200,000 ille­gal immi­grants from El Sal­vador. This fol­lows the expi­ra­tion of TPS for tens of thou­sands of Haitians and Nicaraguans. These pop­u­la­tions, though here ille­gally, were granted annual exten­sions from mul­ti­ple prior admin­is­tra­tions, essen­tially mak­ing their ille­gal entry a tem­po­rary legal act.

Trump was elected largely because of his promised immi­gra­tion poli­cies. Over 70% of the nation sup­port his immi­gra­tion poli­cies. This includes 59% of His­panic voters.

Get­ting approx­i­mately ¾ of our cit­i­zens to agree on any­thing these days is near mirac­u­lous. I argue ille­gal immi­grants have brought this “mir­a­cle” upon themselves.

With acad­e­mia and our gov­ern­ment stress­ing the insignif­i­cance of assim­i­la­tion for decades, large per­cent­ages of immi­grant pop­u­la­tions (espe­cially those from South and Cen­tral Amer­ica and from nearly every major­ity Islamic Nation) have become increas­ingly abra­sive, while demand­ing access to enti­tle­ments such as in-​state tuition, dri­ver licenses, and access to health care and pub­lic schools.

Large num­bers set­tle in eth­nic enclaves and show no desire to inter­act with out­siders. In a grow­ing num­ber of Mus­lim com­mu­ni­ties, for instance, they are increas­ingly refut­ing the power of the state to enforce the rule of law and even demand the power to prac­tice Shariah law. Mul­ti­ple gen­er­a­tions of ille­gal immi­grants from both His­panic and Mus­lim areas either do not learn Eng­lish at all, or speak it only out of necessity.

Their con­tempt for their host nation is dis­played in sports, and large num­bers openly demon­strate hatred for Amer­ica. How many moments like this have we seen on the inter­net or the evening news?

Is there really any shock that, after decades of pub­lic ingrat­i­tude and end­less demands, that a super­ma­jor­ity of Amer­i­cans turned against them?

Amer­ica is incred­i­bly tol­er­ant. There would not be ¾ of us who sup­port stricter immi­gra­tion poli­cies, includ­ing their forcible repa­tri­a­tion, had they behaved like guests and demon­strated a desire to embrace Amer­i­can cul­ture as their own. If the major­ity of ille­gal immi­grants instead fol­lowed the out­dated melt­ing pot con­cept, there is no doubt in my mind that this would not be the lead­ing issue of our time.

To sup­port my the­ory, I ask a ques­tion. Is there a large pub­lic out­cry to repa­tri­ate Africans or Asians who over­stay their work visas or are oth­er­wise here ille­gally? No. Why? For what­ever rea­sons, these pop­u­la­tions seem more will­ing to assim­i­late and show an appre­ci­a­tion for the oppor­tu­ni­ties this nation offers. They do not pub­licly demand that we become the nations they left behind.

Also on Mon­day, the Pope deliv­ered his annual address to the Diplo­matic Corps accred­ited to the Holy See. Some­what sur­pris­ing, con­sid­er­ing his more recent com­ments, Pope Fran­cis stated that immi­grant pop­u­la­tions, “must nec­es­sar­ily con­form to the rules of the coun­try offer­ing them hos­pi­tal­ity, with respect for its iden­tity and values.”

Pre­cisely.

This should be a warn­ing to all immi­grant pop­u­la­tions, present and future. If you behave badly as a pop­u­la­tion, you should expect Amer­i­cans will even­tu­ally demand that you leave.

In 1999 I had to take a diversity course during my final semester of college out east while completing my first master degree. It was here that I learned of the new view that immigration into the US should resemble a stew instead of a melting pot. This concept greatly disturbed me even then, and we are now constantly exposed to the dangers of a lack of assimilation. Although cultural disharmony threatens our nation’s security, the unintended consequences now pose an even greater threat to the millions of illegal immigrants within our borders who insist on being separate.

On Monday the Trump administration announced the end of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to 200,000 illegal immigrants from El Salvador. This follows the expiration of TPS for tens of thousands of Haitians and Nicaraguans. These populations, though here illegally, were granted annual extensions from multiple prior administrations, essentially making their illegal entry a temporary legal act.

Trump was elected largely because of his promised immigration policies. Over 70% of the nation support his immigration policies. This includes 59% of Hispanic voters.

Getting approximately ¾ of our citizens to agree on anything these days is near miraculous. I argue illegal immigrants have brought this “miracle” upon themselves.

With academia and our government stressing the insignificance of assimilation for decades, large percentages of immigrant populations (especially those from South and Central America and from nearly every majority Islamic Nation) have become increasingly abrasive, while demanding access to entitlements such as in-state tuition, driver licenses, and access to health care and public schools.

Large numbers settle in ethnic enclaves and show no desire to interact with outsiders. In a growing number of Muslim communities, for instance, they are increasingly refuting the power of the state to enforce the rule of law and even demand the power to practice Shariah law. Multiple generations of illegal immigrants from both Hispanic and Muslim areas either do not learn English at all, or speak it only out of necessity.

Their contempt for their host nation is displayed in sports, and large numbers openly demonstrate hatred for America. How many moments like this have we seen on the internet or the evening news?

Is there really any shock that, after decades of public ingratitude and endless demands, that a supermajority of Americans turned against them?

America is incredibly tolerant. There would not be ¾ of us who support stricter immigration policies, including their forcible repatriation, had they behaved like guests and demonstrated a desire to embrace American culture as their own. If the majority of illegal immigrants instead followed the outdated melting pot concept, there is no doubt in my mind that this would not be the leading issue of our time.

To support my theory, I ask a question.  Is there a large public outcry to repatriate Africans or Asians who overstay their work visas or are otherwise here illegally?  No.  Why? For whatever reasons, these populations seem more willing to assimilate and show an appreciation for the opportunities this nation offers.  They do not publicly demand that we become the nations they left behind.

Also on Monday, the Pope delivered his annual address to the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See. Somewhat surprising, considering his more recent comments, Pope Francis stated that immigrant populations, “must necessarily conform to the rules of the country offering them hospitality, with respect for its identity and values.”

Precisely.

This should be a warning to all immigrant populations, present and future. If you behave badly as a population, you should expect Americans will eventually demand that you leave.
