RedState’s Daniel Horowitz is probably the brightest new star in the patriotic immigration writer firmament: I have been extremely impressed with his work since he proposed challenging the Obama Administrative Amnesty on Constitutional grounds a year ago.
Now he has reached another VDAREish conclusion in The Veiled Anti-American Sentiment of Open Borders Politicians RedState June 17th, 2013
…the open borders “right” has adopted the parlance, tactics, and ad hominem attacks that traditionally emanate from the left. They impugn the motives of those who desire strong border security and orderly/gradual immigration as racist. However, in recent days, it is they who have been exposed as individuals who harbor deep-rooted prejudges…against native (born) Americans.
This essay, which deserves reading in full and which includes a useful quotation from Calvin Coolidge ending
"As a nation, our first duty must be those who are already our inhabitants, whether native or immigrants."

Word is getting around that Mexico is becoming more middle class (with 39 percent of Mexicans now so estimated), despite the grifter nation’s attempts to keep that information secret from the United States. Mexican elites would prefer that clueless Washington think of the crackhouse next door as poor relations, needing a continuing handout of free stuff and the nearly open border now being negotiated. There are seven million illegal alien Mexicans residing here who would benefit from the amnesty and those still in Mexico could look forward to the increased flow included in the “reform” scam.
One example of severe stupid: in 2011, the US gave wealthy Mexico $411 million in foreign aid. Meanwhile, Mexico currently ranks #14 for GDP among nations — it’s rich! Forbes’ March 2013 list of billionaires counted 11 from Mexico.
Even with economic improvements however, Mexican pols are addicted to the cushion of easy-money remittances from their expats ($24 billion in 2012).
I’ve been writing since 2003 that Mexico is a very wealthy country and didn’t need transnational welfare from Uncle Sucker. The country has had a big population living in poverty but also has the financial resources to improve the well being of its citizens by investing
Want to know what's actually in the fantastically awful immigration "reform" bill that the U.S. Senate—the "world's greatest deliberative body"—is grinding through these days?
For most of us laypeople, actually reading the bill isn't the way to go. One quickly gets lost in the labyrinth, especially where the bill references and slightly tweaks existing law.

The profoundly unpleasant Mayor Michael Bloomberg is rather a favorite here at VDARE.com because of the refreshingly direct way in which he expresses his hatred and contempt for his fellow Americans and the abrasive selfishness of his lust for accelerated immigration.
All of this was on display this weekend at the Stanford University Commencement: Bloomberg advises grads on immigration reform SF Gate Sunday, June 16, 2013
Standing before a packed Stanford Stadium on Sunday, Bloomberg noted that about 30 percent of the university's 5,000 graduates had attended Stanford on student visas, but that many of them without a way to work legally here would return to their home countries

Sarah Palin pushed back against Jeb Bush’s argument that decreased fertility rates in the United States meant that immigration reform was necessary.
In San Francisco, the famously kind-to-criminals sanctuary city has released a naked illegal alien who attacked several people in a BART station. Yeiner Perez (pictured), a citizen of Colombia, can be seen on a video knocking down a woman and assaulting others.
But according to sympathetic reporting from the notoriously pro-lawbreaker San Francisco Chronicle, the guy is a just a victim of mental health issues and needs treatment, not deportation.
Perez is apparently back performing acrobat tricks in public, perhaps even wearing pants.
In a country that cared about public safety, an insane violent illegal alien would be repatriated immediately. But if that dangerous alien behaves criminally in San Francisco, he gets free treatment, and the public’s need for reasonable security in a community space is discounted. Perez merely faces “possible” deportation.
The video below (with the naked bits pixed out) shows what a dangerous character was released.
BART’s naked acrobat facing possible deportation, SFGate blog, June 14, 2013
The acrobat and circus performer who accosted several BART passengers while naked at a San Francisco station last month is facing possible deportation, officials said.
Yeiner Perez, 24, was arrested May 10 at the 16th Street Mission station after a incident in which he did handstands, flips and the splits on station turnstiles. He also lunged at and grabbed several passengers, as shown in a video recorded by a station agent.

Existential demographic defiance dept.: Much ethnomasochistic gloating recently over the news that white deaths exceeded white births in the U.S. last year, for the first time ever. But one of the births was my daughter Karia, seen here eating her first birthday cake last Thursday, June 13.
Late Thursday evening I was sitting in the downstairs study working. I could hear, but not see, the TV in the living room. Mrs. D was watching the Conan O’Brien show.
In his monologue O’Brien mentioned the story out of the Census Bureau that deaths now exceed births among non-Hispanic whites in the U.S.A.
When they heard him say that, the studio audience broke out in cheers and applause.
Marco RINO has another Big Lie in defense of his amnesty legislation. Now the party line is that we need amnesty because the $2,000.00 that the illegal aliens will pay to legalize will be paying for a border fence.

Has anyone else noticed that when Marco Rubio does his amnesty spiel, he begins talking really fast? In a June 13 radio interview with Andrea Tantaros, he stated the legalization of the Senate bill is not amnesty, and he said it lickety split, so listeners couldn’t process the crazy content of what he said.
Tantaros’ fawning over Amnesty Man as the great Republican hope was hard to take, and I won’t be seeking out her radio show. Still, the broadcast got some attention for the Senator’s remarks on a newly discovered benefit of illegal aliens, that they would pay for border security.
Say, what?! Here’s a snip from Byron York’s report:
Rubio: We need to legalize immigrants so they can pay for border security, by Byron York, Washington Examiner, June 13, 2013
[. . .] Rubio’s first reason was that the U.S. has no other choice than to legalize the 11 million. Enhancing security first would take an estimated four years, and Rubio declared, “We cannot wait another four years with 11 million people living in this country illegally without knowing who they are or why they’re here.”
But there was another reason. “We need to register them as soon as possible, not just to keep the problem from getting worse, but we’re going to require them to pay a fine, and that’s the money that we are going to use to pay for the border security,” Rubio explained. “If we don’t get that fine money from the people that have violated our immigration laws, then the American taxpayer is going to have to pay for border security.”
