"Demographics" is a code word for "brown skinned people" going back many years.  What else is Ingraham talking about?

Snooty aristocrats like Ingraham have denounced immigrants going back to the country's founding.  They didn't like all those awful Germans, Irish, Italians, Poles, etc, but somehow they all count as Americans now.  Somehow we survived those waves, even though there were Ingrahams back then, predicting doom.

Her comments were tailored precisely to fit her 65+ white retiree viewer "demographic", who as a group tend to be uncomfortable only with the brown-skinned immigrants.  Those Norwegians that Trump admires -- they're okay.  They can come in.

Sounds like a dog whistle to me.

Explain to me her truth


What she said is not about skin color or ethnicity; she was speaking of the lack of respect for our laws and principles among the flood of immigrants coming into this country. Have you not noticed how corrupt and violent the society is south of our borders? It is chaos, not because of skin color, but because of their culture. Anyone that comes here needs to embrace the American ideal fully or stay out.

But what did Ingraham say that was so awful — or factually flawed?

Fact is immigration has been a recognized political challenge for years. The left has been busily engaged in busting open borders in order to bolster their minority voting base; in order to upset the system of law and order of the U.S. republic; in order to tear down and toss out what Founding Fathers built; in order to usher in an era where government controls take over the idea of God-given rights and America becomes just another country for the globalists to exploit and rule.

One key, one very crucial key, to turn back this progressive tide is a gated, walled, secured border — one that lets in those who understand why America’s great and those who only want to help make it greater, one that selects new citizens based largely on merit and with a “what can you do for us”-type attitude and test.

What’s awful is a committed left bent on dramatically reshaping America by welcoming in those from countries who know little of the Constitution, care little for law and order, consider not at all the concept of God-given versus government-granted — and who want, nay demand, taxpayer support and giveaways simply because they’re alive, so they’re entitled. It’s become a “national emergency,” as Ingraham put it.

That’s not about skin color. That’s about principle.

Alex Nowrasteh, with the libertarian Cato Institute, analyzed the Texas data to make a comparison of immigrants in the country illegally and native-born residents. In a recent post he noted that in 2015 Texas police made 815,689 arrests of native-born Americans, 37,776 arrests of immigrants in the country illegally and 20,323 arrests of legal immigrants. Given the relative populations for each group, he wrote, “The arrest rate for illegal immigrants was 40 percent below that of native-born Americans.”

In addition, he wrote, the homicide arrest rate for native-born Americans was “about 46 percent higher than the illegal immigrant homicide arrest rate.”

Other research from the Cato Institute attempted to provide national estimates. A study published on June 4 used data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey for 2016 and applied statistical modeling to estimate the number of incarcerated immigrants in the country illegally. It filtered the data using characteristics correlated with being an immigrant in the country illegally, such as whether someone is a noncitizen but has not served in the military or received Social Security income. The research concluded: “Illegal immigrants are 47 percent less likely to be incarcerated than natives.” (And legal immigrants are even less likely to be in jail or prison.)

So when did this become a thing?  Do you think that only recently immigrants have come to America with their own set of rules?  As I recall, Italians and Sicilians brought the mob here.  the patty wagon was named after the Irish.  1st generation immigrants don't assimilate.  Never have.  It usually happens in the next generation.  The majority of crime, corruption and violent in this country is from our own citizens, not immigrants.  These people are fleeing  corruption and violent to make a better life for themselves as did your ancestors.

This squares with my experience.

I am first generation -- parents came from Europe.  My siblings and I all assimilated rapidly, becoming indistinguishable from "Americans" the instant we hit kindergarten.

My kids go to schools that are half latino, a quarter mixed other nationalities, and a quarter "normal Americans".  The parents of all these immigrants are isolated and reclusive -- we don't share a language, they don't volunteer for school events, etc.  But the KIDS are 100% on-board with American life and culture.  They are fluent with english, they play normally and mix with the crowd, and they will grow up as Americans, not as Salvadorans, Ethiopians, or whatever.

Hopefully, unlike you, they grow up politically as well.
