The Fulford File, By James Fulford

Schwarzenegger Comes Out Against Illegal Immigration
But Nobody Notices – Yet; etc.

The British news agency Reuters reports that Arnold
Schwarzenegger, a legal immigrant who spent years
struggling with the

INS`s bureaucracy
, says amnesty for illegal
immigrants is unfair to legal immigrants.

"What he [Cruz
Bustamente
] doesn`t understand is that people
like myself waited 15 years to get citizenship,"
Schwarzenegger, who came to the United States from Austria
in the 1960s, said. "There are people who have been
waiting 20 years. I find it unfair to all of a sudden
push the whole thing with undocumented immigrants and
say they should immediately get citizenship."

(Immigrant
Arnold Wants More Secure Calif. Border
, September 2,
2003, by Dan Whitcomb)

Schwarzenegger said this on

KFI-AM
640`s 

“John and Ken Show.”
  (Audio

here.
Immigration starts at 7 minutes 30 seconds.)
Schwarzenegger speaks English very well, by the way, and
you can compare him for example, to the

audio
of Arianna Stassinopoulos Huffington, of whom
John and Ken

say
that “Due to the language barrier, she was
unable to answer most of John & Ken`s questions.”

Amazingly, the Reuters` report doesn`t seem to have
been picked up in the American media at all.

WSJ Edit Page`s Labor Day Revisionism

Well, maybe not so amazingly. A reader points out
that the Wall Street Journal Edit Pagers, not
content with  claiming July 4 a.k.a.

Independence Day
for immigration, now apparently
want

Labor Day
too.

Mary Anastasia O`Grady celebrated it with a piece
booming illegal immigration on OpinionJournal.com.
[Treating
Immigrants Humanely
| Sealing the borders
isn`t an option, harnessing supply and demand is
.
August 30, 2003]

It`s the usual

WSJ special pleading
. Ms. O`Grady is an

area specialist
on “the Americas.” She seems
to have forgotten that her primary concern should be for
“the America.”

But check out the fierce “Reader
Responses.

We don`t need any more
illegal workers for low wage jobs that cost taxpayers
billions of dollars in social services here in
California.— Gary Rudnick – Palm Desert, Calif.

It`s easy for you wealthy

Eastern elites
to vapor about how much Mexicans

contribute
to the U.S., you don`t have live here in
the Southwest with the problem. Les Waldron – La
Mesa, Calif.

The real problem with
illegal immigration is based in the government not
pursuing employers who wish to keep down

American wages
because they run businesses that
would fail in the real world or out of pure greed.
Felipe Bover – Santa Fe, N.M.

The outright refusal to
secure

American borders
and points of entry, especially in
a time when hostile infiltration from abroad is a very
real danger, is quite unjustifiable. National
sovereignty and security are more important than cheap
produce and

affordable hired help
. The mere invocation of the "market"
or "demand" can never defend a policy that offers the
enemies of the United States an easy means of access.
Daniel Larison – Albuquerque, N.M.

Even in the inner sanctum of

post-Americanism
, the smoke of dissent is rising.

Hispanic Killer and WSJ
Edit Page, Part Dos

On August 27, while it was still breaking news, I
wrote an item about the Chicago warehouse shooting,

Hispanic Gunman Kills 7 in Chicago
,
a headline
exclusive to VDARE.COM.

Now the rest of the story. Guess what, he was an
immigrant.

A reader tipped us that he had seen confirmation of
Tapia`s Mexican origin in a story from the
Philippines
. (The story was headed Ople:
No Filipino killed in Chicago shootout
.”
My
first thought was “Gee, thanks a lot, guys.” But
it`s a legitimate thing for the Philippine Foreign
Affairs department to be worried about.)

Most of the US media, however, followed

the rule
that immigration status is only important
in a victim. (Oddly, the Government of Mexico reverses
this rule; they go

all out
for Mexicans on Death Row, and ignore their

victims.
)

One of the victims was Roberto Valles, whose funeral
mass [ABC
Video
] was held Saturday, August 30, in Chicago,
before his body was shipped

back to Mexico
for burial.

The ABC

story
of his sad death and funeral included the fact
that he was an immigrant. But it didn`t include the
immigration status of the man who shot him.

As soon as we posted last week`s story, I got an
unfriendly email saying

Did you really use the
deaths of those poor people in Chicago to make some
vague and incorrect point that the killer was an illegal
entrant?

Answer: Yes.

Partly to say I Told You So, (because I

did
,

repeatedly
). And partly because I knew the

gun control
people would be

blaming the gun
and we would hear, ad nauseum,
that it was a Walther PP .380, and that it was

made in Germany
, but not that the killer came
from Mexico.

From a public policy standpoint, immigration is
infinitely more important than gun control.

Not only does Mexico have a murder rate

three times as high
as the United States, but its
citizens don`t like Americans.

John Douglas, the famous FBI psychological profiler,
and author of

Mindhunter
,
has a link on his

website
to an

Alamance Independent
article in which he`s
quoted:

Douglas told the online
true-crime newspaper APB Online that he views
[the
serial “Railway Killer”]
Resendez-Ramirez as
committing crimes to satisfy immediate material needs,
such as money – but murders in significant part out of
anger at the rich America that keeps deporting him to
his impoverished homeland. Such a motive would almost
amount to a form of terrorism—because Douglas went on to
say that Resendez-Ramirez doesn`t care what race, sex,
or age his victims are, but rather hates the whole
American population.

It`s not just Mexican
illegals who see the U.S. as a nation where living
standards are immensely higher than those of their
homelands and come here illegally for that reason – but
Mexico is the only Third World nation whose poor are
blanketed by Hollywood`s airbrushed version of American
prosperity.

How many more
Resendez-Ramirezs are out there, waiting to go off?

Well, now we can name at least one: Salvador Tapia.

And, once again, as with

Resendez-Ramirez and James Taranto
, we can also name
a Wall Street Journal Edit Page accomplice: Mary
Anastasia O`Grady.
