"Immigration, Is This The Breaking Point?" in which he said "All it would take to get this issue into politics is one speech."
Peter Brimelow writes: This is the transcript of my interview with American Renaissance Editor Jared Taylor
, which he posted as a podcast August 24 under the title Donald Trump: A Call for Deportation
. I was taken off guard by Jared’s question about how I would “put a cherry on top [of Trump’s plan] and improve it to the point of perfection”—a measure of how very long immigration patriots have been on the defensive —and am still thinking of bigger cherries.
Hello. This is Jared Taylor.
My guest today is Peter Brimelow
, known to many of us as the founding father and presiding genius of VDARE.COM.com. VDARE.COM bills itself as the premier news outlet for patriotic immigration reform
and I’d say that hits the nail right on the head. Today I’d like to speak to Mr. Brimelow about Donald Trump’s program for immigration reform.
There are more and more reasons to take his program seriously because it is more and more likely that Mr. Trump could actually win the Republican nomination. According to the very recent polls, he’s increased his lead over his competitors for the nomination and now, no fewer than 32% of probable Republican voters say he’s their top choice. Jeb Bush is trailing with just half that number at 16%. [ VDARE.com note: One poll shows Trump with 28 percent, and Jeb with seven percent—his lowest since 2013. Another poll gives Trump 40 percent
In any case, on Sunday [August 15], Mr. Trump formally issued his policies on immigration reform. So, Mr. Brimelow, tell me, what do you think of his policies?
Well—Mr. Taylor—they are stunning. I’ve been following this subject now since 1992 when I wrote that National Review cover story
that evolved into Alien Nation
and this is the most explicit any presidential candidate has ever been. I think Pat Buchanan
was very good, but he never really put this kind of emphasis on it.
The really extraordinary thing is that we thought Trump was playing this game of “Illegal Bad; Legal Good
,” which is a common way that Republican politicians get around the issue. There were signs that he was doing that—until he suddenly comes forward and issues this statement.
