Memo From Middle America: Morals Of Malinalco—Build The Wall! Close The Anchor Baby Loophole!

Mexicans are returning to Mexico, partially because of President Trump, but also as part of a trend occurring even before he was elected. On December 1, the Los Angeles Times ran three simultaneous articles (called chapters) by Kate Linthicum, all covering the return of Mexicans to the central Mexican town of Malinalco. Taken together, these three articles show us the problems already caused by decades of mass illegal immigration, the problems faced by Mexican illegals going back, and what we should do to maintain American sovereignty in the future.

The Almanza Family

Chapter 1, In Mexico, they made a new American dream — minus their kids , is about German (pronounced Hermán) and Gloria Almanza. This couple moved to the U.S. illegally in the mid-1990s, but their intention was always to return to Mexico. They had the plan of working in America, saving money, and then building a future in their own country.

For two decades, they were “toiling in factories and building, cleaning and repairing other people’s homes so that one day they could make a place of their own back in Mexico — a place to finish raising their two kids.” Their kids, both born in Texas, are automatically U.S. citizens because of the Anchor Baby loophole.

Besides money, the Almanzas “liked the orderliness of Texas, where police gave out tickets when people broke the law, unlike in Mexico, where a bribe could get somebody out of anything.” But they missed the social environment of Mexico and the feast-day celebrations. They were “unnerved” by the way American nuclear families had no connection to their extended families Read more >>

John Derbyshire: Emerging “Demographic Conservatism” Is The Real Lesson Of Roy Moore

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on

What I call "Demographic conservatism"—the instinctive tendency to want to live among people who closely resemble yourself in appearance, manners, dress style, language, and religion, the package we call "culture,” except that race is a component too—is a major factor in what I've been calling the Cold Civil War between Goodwhites and Badwhites. The latest skirmish: the recent special election for Jeff Sessions' Senate seat in Alabama. The Republican candidate, Roy Moore, lost by a whisker—one and a half percent.

My dismay is both rational and emotional.
  • I'm rationally dismayed because the U.S. Senate is now a tad less likely to pass patriotic immigration reform.
The Democrat, Doug Jones, is pretty much a nullity on the National Question. A site search on the "Doug Jones for Senate" website using the search string "immigr" got no hits.

Jones did respond to a questionnaire from NumbersUSA, but his responses were deeply uninformative. Read more >>

“Immigration Has Consequences”—John Derbyshire On Byron Roth’s PERILS OF DIVERSITY

The American people are so fed up from being told—when they want immigration laws enacted which they believe will serve their national interest and when they also want the law enforced—that they are being cruel and mean-spirited and racist. They are fed up with efforts to make them feel that Americans do not have that fundamental right of any people—to decide who will join them here and help them form the future country in which they and their posterity will live …

Those are striking words: a true political fact, pithily expressed.

Much more striking is that they were spoken in 1981, half a lifetime ago. The speaker was then-Senator Alan Simpson, in his capacity as co-chair of a joint House and Senate committee holding hearings on reform of the immigration laws.

Senator Simpson’s observation would of course be just as pertinent today. There you see one of the more dismal, more depressing aspects of arguing for patriotic immigration reform: the fog of stasis that hangs over the whole topic. 1981, 1991, 2001, 2011, … It’s like Groundhog Day.

We state the same plain facts and advance the same reasonable arguments; Open-Borders proponents respond with the same threadbare charges—cruel! mean-spirited! racist!—and nothing changes, nothing changes.

I tell you: agitating for patriotic immigration reform is a real test of stamina.

I lifted Senator Simpson’s words from page 196 of Byron Roth’s book Perils of Diversity: Immigration and Human Nature. Thi s is a new edition, published by us, Books. It is an updated and abridged version of Prof. Roth’s 2011 book with a slightly different title: same as this one but with a starting “ The …” Steve Sailer reviewed that original edition for us here on February 13th, 2011.

Patrick J. Buchanan: Unlike Nixon, Trump Will Not Go Quietly

See, earlier, by Peter Brimelow: “Wheel And Fight”—Pat Buchanan’s Nixon Book Provides Road Map For Trump

On August 9, 1974, Richard Nixon bowed to the inevitability of impeachment and conviction by a Democratic Senate and resigned.

The prospect of such an end for Donald Trump has this city drooling. Yet, comparing Russiagate and Watergate, history is not likely to repeat itself.

First, the underlying crime in Watergate, a break-in to wiretap offices of the DNC, had been traced, within 48 hours, to the Committee to Re-Elect the President.

In Russiagate, the underlying crime--the "collusion" of Trump's campaign with the Kremlin to hack into the emails of the DNC--has, after 18 months of investigating, still not been established.

Campaign manager Paul Manafort has been indicted, but for financial crimes committed long before he enlisted with Trump.

Gen. Michael Flynn has pled guilty to lying about phone calls he made to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, but only after Trump had been elected and Flynn had been named national security adviser.

Flynn asked Kislyak for help in blocking or postponing a Security Council resolution denouncing Israel, and to tell Vladimir Putin not to go ballistic over President Obama's expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats.

This is what security advisers do.
