In the years since [the Olympic Games came to Atlanta in 1996], the number of illegal immigrants living in Georgia has skyrocketed, more than doubling to 480,000 from January 2000 to January 2009, according to a new federal report. That gave Georgia the greatest percentage increase among the 10 states with the biggest illegal immigrant populations during those years.
The article concerns a new federal report, but it does not link it, provide a title, or reveal which government agency produced it. I checked google news and the top immigration websites I know and couldn’t find any other mention of it. The main purpose of this AP article is put a positive spin on immigration.
The main point of the article is that immigration is good for “the economy”. This claim was dubious even before the housing/securitization pyramid scheme collapsed. It is beyond mendacious now.
“In a way it could be a sort of badge of success to have a higher undocumented immigrant population” because it means the economy is strong, [Demographer William] Frey [of the Brookings Institution] said.
Hospitals closing, prisons overflowing, schools failing, higher taxes, more graffiti, White flight, all brought by an alien underclass that resents the formerly safe communities to which they have immigrated. None of this would be different if their immigration were legal. Obviously aliens think immigrating is good for them, otherwise they wouldn’t do it and they wouldn’t stay. The problem is that what is good for them or “the economy” isn’t good for the rest of us.
The article concludes with this gem:
“The only way you’re going to get the illegal immigrant population in Georgia to go down is to legalize them or get rid of the jobs,” said Dowell Myers, a specialist in demographic trends at the University of Southern California.
The jobs, and that excuse for immigration, are gone. But hey, we can still use this brilliant specialist’s logic to solve all our other problems. Let’s start by reducing the murder, rape, and robbery rates by legalizing murder, rape and robbery or getting rid of the victims.
The people propagandizing in favor of immigrants and “the economy” are aiding and abetting our displacement and dispossession. It’s genocide. That they do it for profit or prestige and have the intelligence and power to define it as legal does not excuse this, it makes it worse.
