Is Importing Refugees In The National Interest?

From Agudas Yisrael, a major Orthodox organization: “Finally, in the area of immigration, Agudath Israel urges that American borders continue to be open to Jewish and other refugees who seek to come to the United States after escaping from oppressive political environments. The United States is a nation of immigrants and has long been distinguished by its generosity toward refugees from all across the globe. It is essential that such generosity continue to be maintained in today’s era of international volatil ity. Agudath Israel accordingly opposes any efforts to impose caps or quotas on refugees seeking safe haven in the United States. Agudath Israel further supports the provision of welfare benefits to needy non-citizen immigrants.”

Agudath Israel does not advocate that the Jewish state of Israel import incompatible refugees at a vast expense to its treasury but it does advocate that poison for the United States of America. In fact, every major American Jewish organization supports immigration amnesty for law-breakers who are a bad fit for this country.

Most American Jews do not support these destructive policies. Instead, they work hard, study hard, and try to raise good kids. They love their country. They don’t want to destroy it.

If you found poisonous snakes in your bedroom, who would you hate? The snakes or the people who put them there. The big American Jewish organizations want to fill your neighborhoods with poisonous snakes.

I am not arguing that these refugees are poisonous snakes, or that any less human or made in God’s image, but that they are a bad fit for first world civilizations. There are no superior or inferior people in the objective view of the universe. We are all just forms of life struggling to survive. From a white first-world perspective, importing low-IQ criminally-inclined immigrants is importing poison. They are a drain on the economy, and they diminish social trust. Racial and religious diversity always reduce social trust.
