Re:  A Reader Asks About “Broken Windows” And Immigration

From: A West Texas Reader [Email him]

Another thank you to all at VDARE.

I read James Fulford’s November, 2011 article on Broken Windows policing applied to immigration enforcement.

Wow. 2011.

Where was I?

Then I read A Liberal Democrat Becomes A One Issue Voter. Wow. I agree with his issue. The other issues are moot, unless we correct the main issue.

While my discussions with family and friends convince me that I'm way ahead of their (lack of) understanding of the immivasion, after seeing that Fulford (and VDARE.com writers) have been on this since 2011, and all the way back to 1992—I feel a bit ashamed.

Ashamed in a way that would be like the shame of the lieutenant who said of the radar report the morning of  December 7, 1941, "Well, don't worry about it". Oops.

What was I thinking all those years? Why was I so blind?

I remember in the mid-1980s, hanging out with friends in Norman, OK, talking about the proposed amnesty being unfair to those who'd followed the rules. Little did I know "fairness" was a lesser issue.

As recently as the early 2000's I still viewed immigration in the long-gone romantic sense of steamers-sailing-by-the-Statue of Liberty-with-tears-of-joy-on-all-immigrants-hopeful-faces feelgood stories.

Sheesh, what a sucker I was. But no more.

Better late than never.

I'm not sure when I first tripped over VDARE, but I think it was about a year ago. So again, my thanks to VDARE for bringing clarity and honesty.
