Indian immigrant Shikha Dalmia (email her

Here's a nifty table put together by American Enterprise Institute's Mark Perry, a University of Michigan economics professor who runs the super smart blog Carpe Diem. It makes an illuminating companion to my post on Indian sh*tholers.Let that sink in before you talk smack again, Mr. President!Sh*tholers of the World Are Making America GreatIt was true when the Pilgrims came, it's true now, and it'll be true forever.Shikha Dalmia, Reason.

It’s true that India leads the world in public defecation,
but the that’s not what Trump was (allegedly, according to Dick Durbin
) referring to—he was talking about Haiti and Africa, which produce immigrants who commit crime and go on welfare.
Here’ Dalmia’s chart--note the absence of any black countries at all:
Unlike Haiti, the refugee sending regions of Africa, and, of course, Mexico, these countries are
sending their best--college graduates who take jobs
from college-educated Americans. India is full of people who would live in poverty
in the US, but they don't get visas. The way I see it, people like this just displace a better class of American.
