@dmataconis I agree. But I want high skilled immigrants who contribute jobs, not welfare recipients.

@dmataconis No, you said criminalizing people who come to the country. Is it not a crime to violate national sovereignty?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dmataconis

@dmataconis OK, so you don’t believe in borders.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dmataconis

@dmataconis So why are you making easier for illegal immigrants, who are overwhelmingly Hispanic? Are you against high skilled immigration?

@dmataconis Then you need to move to California or go to Mexico and Latin America. Evidence that it’ll help GOP? I’ll wait.

It’s always funny to me how GOP is skeptical about government, but think ICE can do everything when it comes to immigration reform.

Better policy: Admit more white and colored South Africans and Zimbabweans who suffer at hands of Marxist racist regimes.

via Twitter Web Client

Better immigration policy: Give preference to persecuted Christians and Jews. They’ll like it here more than other groups.

I can’t wait until people read my book chapter on Calvin Coolidge and immigration. He had it right. .

Better immigration policy: Give preference to immigrants that don’t want to live in segregated communities.

Better immigration policy: Give preference to immigrants with high I.Qs. They assimilate faster, studies show.

Solution to illegal immigration is more trade, build up Mexico so Mexicans don’t leave. Instead Mexican pols discriminate against whites.

You will never solve the immigration issue as long as Mexico and US have the greatest wealth disparity of any 2 contiguous countries.

@jstrevino I’d settle for Israeli-level security. It’s no joke how porous the border is.

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino not with the landmines; yes with the multiple checkpoints. I watched narcotraffickers fly planes from Guate to Mex. It’s scary.

via Twitter Web Client

@NolteNC And why not? “Doing something” has been what got us the first amnesty and incentivized the soon-to-be seconded.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NolteNC

@ChuckCJohnson @jstrevino I wouldn’t have the landmines but I would certainly have it heavily guarded.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ChuckCJohnson

@jstrevino My basic view is that we should be Canada and Australia when it comes to immigration policy and Korea when it comes to borders.

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino My uncle and I bribed the guards at the Mexico-Guatemala border to bring in a bunch of dogs into Guatemala in ’07.

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino No, Mexico secures its borders. It permits Central-Americans to go through the checkpoints with a large enough bribe.

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino Mexico doesn’t give legal rights to Guatemalans or Hondurans, except rarely. Most are basically ferried through on way to US.

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino Mexico absolutely secures its Guatemalan border. I’ve driven it 3x. Also, most crossings are now non-Mexican but most illegals r

via Twitter Web Client

In 2006, Mexico gave rights to only 15,000 Guatemalan “dreamers” in 2012, will we give to more than 6 or 7 million Mexicans?

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino I’ve been to the border of Guatemala and Mexico. It is one of the most militarized. If Mexico can secure borders, why can’t we?

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino Mexicans in TX come from a different part of Mexico than Mexicans in CA. Ever considered that Texas may be outlier?

via Twitter Web Client

I have nothing against illegal immigrants; I have everything against a political class that prefers them to Americans.

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino I’m saying it’s unfair to be upset with working-class people who worry about influx of illegal immigrants becoming citizens.

via Twitter Web Client

@jstrevino current immigration policy is disproportionately kind to Mexico and Latin America even though we know Asians create more jobs.

Those who accuse critics of being anti-immigrant when they don’t want to cheapen American citizenship are the real bigots.

@jstrevino Stats for interracial crime caused by Hispanics, 2nd only to blacks. Isn’t it rational to want to live among low-crime areas?
