12,513 Afghans became permanent residents in ’16. Their country is in the middle of an endless civil war between the Islamic terrorists who hate us and the Islamic terrorists who really, really hate us.

Only 31% of the population of Afghanistan can read. Around 1,000 of the Afghans we took in have jobs. 8,190 don’t have jobs.  3,158 are marked as unknown. That’s an 8% employment rate.

The left has been shrieking that wrapping up Temporary Protected Status for aliens from El Salvador will wreak havoc on our businesses and economy. In ’16, we took in 23,449 Salvadorans. Around 3,000 have jobs. The other 20,000 don’t seem to.

Before TPS ended for El Salvador, it ended for Haiti. 23,584 Haitians became permanent residents in ’16. Haiti is a permanent disaster. So are its immigrants. Only 2,691 or 11% are employed.

And in ’16, we also took in 5,159 residents from France. 40% of them are working.

The mainstream media turned into one big 24/7 outrage hole over what President Trump might have said. The alleged hole has filled the hole in CNN’s programming left by the lack of missing airliners or new revelations about Trump’s ice cream eating habits. But whether he said it or not, it’s undeniably true. And the media talking heads spitting like poisonous lizards at their teleprompters know it’s true.

Last week, they were shouting that sending Salvadorians back to El Salvador, a country run by gangs, was a monstrous act. But now suddenly El Salvador and Haiti are misunderstood paradises. If they’re such wonderful places, then let’s send the TPS recipients there. If they’re holes, then tell the truth.

Haitians received Temporary Protected Status in the United States after an earthquake eight years ago. When the Trump administration suspended their temporary status and gave them 18 months to leave, the left called sending them back to non-holish Haiti, “cruel and shameful” and “inhumane”.

A resolution by much of the Congressional Black Caucus described a country suffering from a cholera epidemic spread by peacekeepers after an earthquake. “Haiti's economic growth has contracted to less than one percent, the unemployment rate remains above 40 percent, and the overwhelming majority of Haitians (60 percent) continue to live well below the national poverty line of $2.42 per day.”   

Or as Senator Rubio put it, “HIV/AIDS, malaria, and unchecked cholera, have undermined Haiti’s ability to meet its full potential.” If Haiti is this bad now, just imagine if it unleashed its full potential?

But you better not call it any kind of hole. It’s a wonderful place that we can’t possibly return people to because they’ll immediately catch cholera from the UN peacekeepers while living on $2.42 a day.

And if the earthquakes, peacekeepers and hurricanes don’t get them, the kidnappers and killers will.

The State Department had warned, “No one is safe from kidnapping, regardless of occupation, nationality, race, gender, or age.”  It added, “In recent months, travelers arriving in Port-au-Prince on flights from the United States were attacked and robbed shortly after departing the airport.”

This racist outburst from the previous administration should not go unpunished. Maybe the Congressional Black Caucus members threatening to impeach Trump for allegedly criticizing Haiti can retroactively impeach that notorious racist from their own racist ranks: Barack Hussein Obama.

How dare his administration imply that Haiti was anything except a wonderful place?

Haitians don’t enjoy cholera, malaria and kidnappings. Nobody enjoys cholera, malaria and kidnappings. But immigrants who truly see America as a refuge are happy to leave the hole they came from.

The Pilgrim passengers on the Mayflower knew exactly what they were escaping. Governor William Bradford wrote of being “hunted & persecuted on every side”. Centuries of immigrants felt the same way. But the left teaches today’s immigrants to look down on America even as they benefit from it.

"My parents are from #s___holecountry Pakistan. I'm their son, born & raised here. Proud of it. We're your doctors, employers, employees, engineers, teachers, students, drivers, thought leaders," Wajahat Ali bragged. Lefty celebrities and “thought leaders” retweeted his expression of Pakistani pride.

19,313 Pakistanis became residents in ’16. Only 15% have jobs. What would we do without them?

Pakistan is a terror state that harbored Osama bin Laden. Murdering Christians and Hindus is a matter of national pride. 93% of Pakistani women experience sexual violence. That goes a long way to explaining why Pakistani colonists have figured so prominently in rape cases in Australia and the United Kingdom.

Wajahat Ali is an Islamist “thought leader”. That means he defends Islamic terrorism. He insisted that Obama, “must at the very least interact with democratically elected Muslim governments and representatives, such as Hamas and Mahmoud Ahmadinijad of Iran” and denounced the “brutal U.S. foreign policy” which “has killed thousands of innocents”.

That is what immigration from the Pakistan hole gets us.

That and Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square bomber (the first one), Mir Amal Kansi, the CIA shooter, Naveed Haq, who shot up the Seattle Jewish Federation, Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, the San Bernardino massacre terrorists, and the other 9 Pakistanis caught in terror plots in America.

We can get our doctors, employers, engineers and drivers from lots of places. But when it comes to murdering people at a Christmas party in San Bernardino or Jewish women at a social services agency in Seattle, nobody beats the Islamic terrorists that Pakistan sends us. Or terror propagandists like Ali.

What causes Islamic terrorism? One answer is the arrogance in Wajahat Ali’s tweet.

Immigrants used to come to America to improve themselves. Now many come convinced of their superiority and our inferiority. They attribute our successes and their failures to a conspiracy.

Any immigrant can aspire to more than their home country. America was made by men and women who came here with nothing but the shirts on their back and a determination to work hard. They knew that they were leaving hell behind and they could glimpse the fulfillment of their dreams through the clouds.

Just because your country is a hole, doesn’t mean you have to be.

That’s a choice.

But the first step is recognizing that your country is broken. And that if you want something better, you have to change. If you don’t believe your country is a hole, then there’s no reason to change.

Unless you hear the truth.

President Trump made an argument for American exceptionalism. Exceptionalism isn’t just important for America. It’s vital for any immigrants who truly want to succeed in this country. The left has ruined generations of immigrants, just like it ruined inner cities, by preaching the superiority of victimhood.

And there’s nothing more toxic than that.

Trump’s immigration policies challenge that sense of entitlement. They echo a familiar phrase recited by a man who had once been a Dem icon. “Ask not what your country can do for you-- ask what you can do for your country.” Coming from a wretched and miserable place doesn’t entitle you to anything.

Our immigration policy is built on entitlement. It doesn’t work for Americans or immigrants. It keeps out those immigrants who have the most to give and rewards those who want to take the most.

The only way to change it is with some straight talk.

It doesn’t matter whether President Trump said it. What matters is that it’s true. We need higher standards for immigrants. We won’t make America great until we believe we deserve better than holes.

HIV/AIDS, malaria, and unchecked cholera are its full potential.

I did appreciate getting some numbers on just how many "hard working immigrants" are not working at all, even as the country has soared to employment levels unseen since the Sixties.

Cut them off or send them home. Just like all these phony "temporary refugees".

And in ’16, we also took in 5,159 residents from France. 40% of them are working.

And the other 60% are either students paying tuition, or spouses and children of the 40% who came in who work. Nobody admitted from France is a refugee or asylum seeker, all of them pay taxes (or are a dependent of somebody who does, or a student).

French people immigrate for personal and business reasons.

During the same period, 4580 Americans migrated to France, for the same reasons that the French migrated here. In other words, in any given year, about the same number of Americans emigrate to France as French people emigrate to America - and the ones doing it supported themselves on the side of the Atlantic whence they came, and expect to do so on the other side.

I've gone that way - over to France to study, live and work for several years, had a French green card, etc., and my wife has done the same thing longer - moved from France to here, and took up citizenship. My daughter is a dual citizen. When we retire, we'll probably emigrate to Paris for good: family is there.

Simply put, one cannot compare Western European immigration to America to immigration to America from third world shitholes.

The difference is easy to see: if Americans are emigrating from America to the origin country in about the same numbers, these are personal family and work decisions, not economic refugees.

You couldn't get 10,000 Norwegians or French to emigrate to America in a given year any more than you could get 10,000 Americans to emigrate to France or Norway. What would they DO there on the other side, beside be a tourist?

First world prosperous places are full of educated, hardworking people raising families. That's why you don't have immigration problems with them.

People want to leave bad places, and Americans don't want to emigrate TO bad places.

It would not be hard to list the places Americans emigrate to: France, the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Scandinavia, Canada, Mexico (the nice parts by the ocean), Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, maybe Japan and South Korea. They do it mainly for business or studies, usually, and if they stay, it's because of marriage.

Nothing wrong with that kind of immigration. It's the kind you want and can sustain forever.

Allowing countries to export their excess population - this is not good for us (and "us" means ANY developed nation, not just the USA). Maybe we should collect all of these immigrants, treat them, train them, arm them, and send them back to conquer the lands from which they came. That way they can change on the ground in their homes the things they had to flee.

Would it be "imperalism", really, to arm the Somalians and train them and send them back with logistics to take back their homeland from the crazies?

I saw this bit on TPS repatriation today. Your own solution to train these TPS people to invade and pacify their own countries is a thought I've had before but dismissed because, well, it just is not practical at all.

From a distance and with hindsight, I really think you wasted your manpower and your money, but you weren't alone in that
