Today’s highly interesting read (04/16/19): Are There Any Limits to Illegal Immigration?

No photo description available.
Today’s read (and it’s a must) is an outstanding piece by Victor Davis Hanson, an American military historian, columnist, former classics professor, and scholar of ancient warfare who also grows raisin grapes on a family farm in Selma, California.

As to the headline above Hanson writes, “In theory, 50 million could cross the border in the next two decades.”

Scary thought.

In the same column Hanson expounds upon how illegal immigration has changed America.

Illegal immigration and its effects on a community are incremental but steady. This past week, two miles from my home, an illegal alien fled the scene of an accident that he had caused, which killed a pregnant Mexican-American and critically injured her 11-year-old daughter. He is still at large. Within a 100-mile radius of central California, at least five citizens were killed by illegal alien gunmen in the last four months. When I go to town to drop off dry cleaning, I rarely hear English spoken. Almost all the stores in the shopping center (where I have gone for 50 years) have Spanish names. Few English signs are apparent or needed.

The formerly rich diverse community of Japanese-, Armenian-, Basque-, Portuguese-, Mexican- and Scandinavian-Americans have long since vanished.

There’s plenty more. Read it all here.
