Yesterday, the U.S. Census Bureau released the results of its annual American Community Survey (ACS). The figures were taken in 2008. All of the major media outlets (including USA Today and the Wall Street Journal) are touting it, today, as evidence that the bad economy has solved our alien problems, noting that immigration–legal AND illegal–is down and that less foreign born people are here.
But that’s hardly the real picture. In fact, while immigration is down from places like Mexico and Peru, immigration is up from Middle Eastern Muslim nations like terrorist-host states Syria and Iran. I did my own investigation into the census numbers and uncovered the important story here that no-one else is telling you. The countries that hate us the most are still exporting their haters to our shores. Those numbers are up, not down.
A Wall Street Journal graph (above), at least, shows that the number of Iranian-born immigrants is up by 18, 730 from 2007, for a total of 344,935 (though the WSJ article on this story doesn’t cover Mid-East immigration and sticks to the “immigration is down” narrative). While some of the nearly 19,000 new U.S. residents from Iran came here to get away from Ahmadinejad and the Ayatollahs, some did not. And we have no way of knowing which are which. If even only a fraction of that number are anti-American and inclined to do Iran’s bidding here, that’s far too many.
Then, there are the figures from Syria. The Census figures show that the number of Syrian-born residents in the U.S. increased by 11,349 persons to 66,077 Syrians here in 2008. That’s an alarming increase, given that most Syrians here (in recent years) are Shi’ite Muslims who support the (Alawite) Assad government and its hand in Hezbollah. (Most Syrian Christians who were going to leave left there long ago.)
From Lebanon, the increase is only 3,550, according to the Census. But that’s an estimate. And based on the number of Lebanese immigrants–both legal and illegal–here in Detroit, I’d say it’s far larger. And, still, most of those are Shi’ite Muslims who support Hezbollah. We really do not need even one more Hezbollah enabler on American soil, let alone the majority of 3,550 of them.
And none of this takes into account immigrants from the Gulf States–Al-Qaeda hotbeds of extremism–Saudi Arabia and Yemen, not to mention United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, which don’t have their own category in the Census survey.
Fortunately, the numbers of those here from Pakistan, Egypt, and North Africa are slightly down from last year, but again, this is only a sampling–an estimate–and they could be completely off. The survey also claims the number of Iraqi-born residents is down by over 1,000, but yet we’ve welcomed tens of thousands of Iraqis to our shores, so the number doesn’t seem quite accurate and is likely reflective of the rest of the accuracy of the survey.
Still, it’s annoying–no, it’s maddening. Since 9/11, as I’ve noted over and over again, we’ve done everything to make it hard for Hispanic illegal aliens, but little to discourage Islamic ones–you know the Muslim Arabs with the same theology and heritage as the 19 hijackers. That’s why it’s so disturbing–but not at all surprising–that we see this increase in population, despite the bad economy, from our friends in the “Religion of Peace.” For them, a bad economy doesn’t hinder their non-stop milking of the system, bailouts, and entitlements, a la Najibullah Zazi and Ali Nemr and Rania Rahal. And it certainly doesn’t discourage their plans to Islamicize America.
They murdered nearly 3,000 Americans, and yet we keep welcoming them to our shores.
Yes, immigration is down, but not where it counts. The most undesirable–the most dangerous–keep on comin’.
