America's open borders have put huge strains on our social services, schools, and police departments, let alone facilitating drug addiction and human sex-trafficking. Donald Trump has promised to shut the door on day one of his administration, but even if Trump is elected, the damage will continue for decades...

The deeper problem is that nearly all illegals arrive embracing values against core American principles. They are "aliens" both legally and in terms of our political culture. 

Modern immigration is wholly unlike that of the earliest days, when most immigrants were of English ancestry and quickly integrated into society... Those newly arrived Muslims clustering in places like Dearborn, Mich. have altered the political landscape thanks to their vociferous support for Hamas, and this new voice may be a harbinger of future Balkanization.

No precise definition of America’s political culture exists, but central is patriotism - subordinating all loyalties to national identity.  As Teddy Roosevelt put it in 1907, "there can be no divided allegiance here. ... We have room for but one flag, the American flag. ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Further add the values explicitly embedded in the Constitution: the rule of law; the rights of free speech and freedom of religion; freedom from government tyranny; the primacy of individual, not group rights and similar rights vital to ordered liberty. Further add elections, not violence, to settle disputes...

The modern immigration problem is just the first installment of Balkanization...

Perhaps today's Progressives hope that Americans will assimilate to the Third World, not vice versa.


Discrimination Is Good: Without It Civilization Would Collapse, by Brandon Smith, Alt-Market, 2 March 2024:

... Every person on Earth discriminates in one way or another because it’s a survival imperative... I argue that discrimination is simply the act of refusing to associate with another person or group, and this is often NOT based merely on skin color or differences in appearance. In reality, most discrimination is rooted in personal safety and cultural security.

Human beings are tribal, there’s no way around this biological imperative and it will never change. Tribalism is based on physical safety, but also ideological safety. Human beings form tribes and kingdoms and nations and borders because they have a particular set of values, religious beliefs and cultural norms that they want to maintain and protect. They have found a system that works for them and that keeps their society from imploding, and they want to ensure that there is no sabotage of that system from within.

Hence, the need for suspicion and discrimination when a tribe is faced with outsiders that champion a hostile or contrary ideal. The threat of being subsumed and destroyed by another tribe’s culture has been a motivator for discrimination since human history began...

It’s not a white person thing, it’s not a western thing, it’s a reality for every group of humans on the planet...

The moral foundations of the west, while not always adhered to as we might prefer, are still the bedrock for some of the most free and most prosperous people of any era. There are good reasons to protect the west from alien cultures that want to undermine it...
