Tucker Carlson brought a Mexican man on the show, Thursday, to explain how the migrant caravan is wreaking havoc on Tiajuana–a fact Liberals just can’t get their heads around.
People debate all the time about mass immigration. But what you never hear anybody do is make the economic case for mass immigration. And here’s why: Our country’s economy is becoming more automated and tech-centered by the day.
It’s obvious we need more scientists and skilled engineers. What we’re getting instead are waves of poor people with a high school education or less. They’re nice people; nobody doubts that. But as an economic matter, this is insane. It’s indefensible, so nobody tries to defend it.
Instead, our leaders demand you shut up and accept it. We’ve got a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer, dirtier and more divided. Immigration is a form of atonement. Previous leaders of our country committed sins. So, we must pay for those sins by welcoming an endless chain of migrant caravans.
That’s the argument. If it sounds like something some dopey sociology professor at Long Beach State thought up while half-drunk in the 1970s, you’re right. That’s pretty much exactly what it is. Yet, somehow, the immigration-as-atonement idea has become the official position of virtually every guilty liberal in the United States: our tech overlords who are also lecturing you; corporate America; Nancy Pelosi; and Paul Ryan. They all believe this. And anyone who disagrees with them is denounced as a bigot and fired.
