Israel And Immigration
From my Taki's Magazine column:
With the Washington establishment agreeing that what America needs right now is to double down on guest workers and amnesty for illegal aliens, it’s worthwhile to notice how a serious country such as Israel deals with past mistakes in immigration policy.

Israeli protesting immigration December 31 2012
At an annual event discussing ways to end human trafficking, President Barack Obama declared that the problem of illegal immigration into the U.S. "has been solved.” With no more than a few dozen illegals managing to get into the U.S. in recent months, Obama said that for all intents and purposes, his government had managed to put an end to illegal immigration, and with it, the problem of human trafficking.
Israel Also Has Judicial Activism and Illegal Alien Protest, But At Least Its Government Is Determined To Deport
Like the United States, Israel has an illegal alien invasion problem. Unlike the United States, Israel has a government that wants to put a stop to it.
However, like the United States, Israel also has an activist judiciary element that wants to thwart law enforcement:
The Jerusalem District Court issued on Thursday evening [Oct. 11th] a temporary injunction prohibiting the arrest of infiltrators from North Sudan, at least until the next hearing on the matter to be held later this month.
Let me start off with good, or at any rate interesting, news: Mitt Romney is going to be the next President of the United States.
I know this because FAIR’s President Dan Stein told me so. He told all of us who attended the FAIR Board of Advisers meeting yesterday so.
Now, it’s not often that Dan says anything crazier than me! So I thought this news was worth passing on.
And I should add that Dan also had this new hot young elections analyst for RealClearPolitics speak. I always thought he had the ideal name for an election analyst: Sean Trende! But it turns out that he pronounces it “Trend-y”
At VDARE.com we like Trende, because he agrees with us! He’s started to say things that I can modestly we’ve been saying for the last twelve years. Such as “the Hispanic vote is much exaggerated.” And “the real target of opportunity in American politics is the white working class; the white working class is up for grabs.”
Anyway, it turns out Trende takes Romney’s chances quite seriously too.
Now one of the functions of the Main Stream Media is to explain, after the fact, why whatever happened was inevitable.
So how did Mitt Romney become inevitable?
Maybe it was any one of a series of statements, made within the last year and throughout this summer.
Romney: "I Intend To Make Life Miserable For Illegal Immigrants Until They Realize Their Place Is Not Here"
Israeli Minister Eli Yishai: Can we hire him?
Well…actually the headline is a paraphrase of remarks by Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai:
Israeli Asylum Seeker Demonstration. Next year in Jerusalem: Not!
Generally speaking, much can be learned from Israel about how an intelligent people govern themselves
