PHOENIX, AZ — The feverishly anticipated and once-postponed “immigration speech,” a follow-up to the “terrorism speech” which largely revolved around immigration anyway, has finally come. Trump spoke in Arizona (hours after meeting with the Mexican president) on a topic many had expected him to introduce a softened stance on, his immigration platform. Concerns about illegal immigration in particular were what catapulted Trump’s campaign over a dozen Republican rivals earlier in the election cycle, and his repeatedly voiced stances of deportation and building a wall on the southern border were the keystones to his success.
But following the Republican National Convention and shifts in Trump’s rhetoric towards blacks and mestizos, as well as comments about amnesty, it had become unclear what exactly Trump’s stance was on the issue anymore. But lo, for by the grace of Kek there is ambiguity no more to Trump’s stance on repatriating the invader and sealing his point of entry. From the text of the speech, it is clear that he is rallying his base and dialing the nativism to 11, not pivoting to a softer stance to attract cucks and placate hlaateeno concern trolls.
Here are some top bytes from Trump’s speech:
- "The fundamental problem with the immigration system in our country is that it serves the needs of wealthy donors, political activists and powerful, powerful politicians.”
- "When politicians talk about immigration reform, they usually mean the following, amnesty, open borders, lower wages. Immigration reform should mean something else entirely. It should mean improvements to our laws and policies to make life better for American citizens.”
- “Immigration law doesn't exist for the purpose of keeping criminals out. It exists to protect all aspects of American life. The work site, the welfare office, the education system, and everything else.”
- "We also have to be honest about the fact that not everyone who seeks to join our country will be able to successfully assimilate. Sometimes it's just not going to work out. It's our right, as a sovereign nation to chose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.”
- "Countless Americans who have died in recent years would be alive today if not for the open border policies of this administration and the administration that causes this horrible, horrible thought process, called Hillary Clinton.”
- "While there are many illegal immigrants in our country who are good people, many, many, this doesn't change the fact that most illegal immigrants are lower skilled workers with less education, who compete directly against vulnerable American workers, and that these illegal workers draw much more out from the system than they can ever possibly pay back.”
- "Only the out-of-touch media elites think the biggest problems facing America -- you know this, this is what they talk about, facing American society today is that there are 11 million illegal immigrants who don't have legal status… To all the politicians, donors, and special interests, hear these words from me and all of you today. There is only one core issue in the immigration debate, and that issue is the well-being of the American people.”
This is all really good stuff. It’s America First. It’s what we want people to be okay with thinking in terms of. It’s a big transformation from view referenced in the last quote I’ve provided, which dominates the left’s way of thinking about immigration. They believe in a top-down imposition of mass immigration as a moral duty regardless of public opinion. Their penchant for prioritizing illegal immigrants and immigrants from non-Western societies, who are overwhelmingly non-White, highlights their third worldism. They won’t even call the former illegal immigration, preferring “undocumented,” as the implication is that the person has simply failed to complete their paperwork rather than transgressed against our patrimony and property. And how could they have transgressed against us when we are the obvious oppressor? Because of course, in any conflict between the purported white-supremacist-capitalist-patriarchy of the United States and brown people, who do you think the left will side with?
Trump—when he isn’t busy doing DR3 (Dems-aRe-the-Real-Racists)—totally ignores, if not repudiates, this paradigm. America First means that at the very least, foreign non-Whites are not to be favored over Americans, though Trump still pays lip service to the idea that blacks and Hispanics (though never Asians) need to be explicitly pandered to in racial terms by Republicans to win elections (while never mentioning Whites). But just that idea alone, that our well-being comes before that of people here illegally, is extremely powerful, and one that we’ve not seen come credibly close to implementation in a long time. The cuckservative-beloved Ronald Reagan did not believe this, as he granted “amnesty” while in office. If Trump succeeds, that school of thought may permanently die on the right, which would be a major Overton window shift.
Trump gave around a dozen specific policy points in addition to providing the ideological context above:
- Building an “intangible, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall” that will use “the best technology, including above and below ground sensors,” complete with “towers, aerial surveillance and manpower to supplement the wall, find and dislocate tunnels and keep out criminal cartels.” Mexico “will pay for that wall” and “will work with us.”
- Detaining and deporting anyone who illegally crosses the border, physically removing them from the United States to their country of origin. Trump also made a thinly veiled reference to the effective enforcement program in the 1950s known as Operation Wetback. This is worth quoting in full: “And they'll be brought great distances. We're not dropping them right across. They learned that. President Eisenhower. They'd drop them across, right across, and they'd come back. And across. Then when they flew them to a long distance, all of a sudden that was the end. We will take them great distances.” Sheeeit.
- Deporting any immigrants who commit or have committed crimes. “Zero tolerance for criminal aliens. Zero. Zero.” Any illegal immigrant currently in jail for a crime gets “placed into immediate removal proceedings if we even have to do that.”
- Tripling the size of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which would effectively meme the “deportation force” into reality. He also joked that they might even be able to deport Hillary Clinton. 5000 more border patrolmen would be recruited, increasing the size of the force by about a fourth.
- Ending sanctuary city status. Trump will bring the weight of the Leviathan down on dissenting municipalities to do this. “Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars, and we will work with Congress to pass legislation to protect those jurisdictions that do assist federal authorities.”
- Cancelling Obama’s executive orders on immigration and enforcing existing laws. Sorry DREAMers, no amount of linguistic manipulation and perversion of American civil religion will save you.
- Implementing “extreme vetting on immigrants. No visas for people from countries “where adequate screening cannot occur.” He’s said this before. Syria and Libya are explicitly mentioned as banned. Also brought up the ideological test again, which I have previously dismissed as totally circumventable. On the other hand he cited Pew Research Center (wow!) on how the majority of Afghans and Iraqis support honor-killings, so I guess they are pre-banned before the test? Obviously filling out a Pew Research survey and a Get Into America test are different contexts, and participants would be strongly incentivized to change their answers.
- No refugee resettlement from Syria. Trump said it is 12 times cheaper to resettle refugees in safe zones in the Middle East than the United States (definitely cheaper though to what extent who knows). He plans to get the Gulf states to pay for at least some of the cost (they have enormous sovereign wealth funds).
- Forcing countries to accept the repatriation of their nationals. Currently, there are “at least 23 countries that refuse to take their people back after they've been ordered to leave,” and “due to a Supreme Court decision” they then have to be released into the United States rather than deported.
- Completing the biometric entry-exit visa tracking system. Apparently Congress has green-lit this but nothing has been done to implement it according to Trump. Two of the 9/11 hijackers were on overstayed visas, Trump noted.
- Expanding the E-Verify system to “turn off the jobs and benefits magnet.” If fully implemented and made mandatory for employers, it would be illegal to hire people who cannot officially work in the United States. This would destroy illegal immigration overnight. There would literally be no lawful work for them, a perfect complement to their unlawful status. E-Verify would raise the cost of hiring illegals for employers, which would force them to hire Americans and restructure, or go out of business. Trump also cited the Center for Immigration Studies report showing 62% of households headed by illegals are on welfare of some kind, adding that “those who abuse our welfare system will be priorities for immediate removal.”
This is all really, really good stuff for the most part. In terms of policy proposals, he isn’t even offering anything particularly radical. This is all about enforcing existing immigration laws, expanding the power of the government to enforce them, and then completing the process with physical, legal, and virtual barriers against future illegal inflows. It’s almost unbelievable that we don’t currently do this until you remember we have a hostile elite.
And here is probably the most important idea Trump articulated on illegal immigration:
Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation. That is what it means to have laws and to have a country. Otherwise we don't have a country.
Prioritized deportees would include “criminals, gang members, security threats, visa overstays, public charges. That is those relying on public welfare or straining the safety net along with millions of recent illegal arrivals and overstays who've come here under this current corrupt administration.”
It is highly symbolic and important that the speech was given in Arizona. Arizona has some of the toughest immigration hardliners in the country, like Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and is widely panned by the left as having racially discriminatory profiling practices against illegals. You know, since we should stop English-speaking Scots-Irish and German looking people to check if they are citizens too. But Arizona is also one of the most fragile Republican states in the Union and a canary in the coalmine for the rest of the country. In what can only be the result of really good gerrymandering and low voter turnout, the 57.8% Anglo White state has a Republican governor and two Republican senators, while five of its nine representatives are Republican. Children under five are majority non-White.
Rule of Arizona by the Republican party is doomed within a few election cycles, and it will be entirely because of immigration. This is not to defend the Republican party, but as it is the implicitly White party (most Republicans are White, most Whites vote Republican), losing the Arizona to the Democratic party, the party of cultural marxists and third-worldists, represents a sizable victory for the rising tide of color. It is merely just one localized case of the third demographic transition: low birthrates and mass immigration bringing about White minoritization. The same process will flip the other southwestern Republican stronghold in our lifetimes, Texas, to a blue state, after which a conservative Republican will never win a national election again.
Trump’s speech—and proposals to deport illegals and build a border wall—is really then a case of too little too late for places like Arizona. By itself, a border wall will do nothing to change Arizona other than slow down what already has demographic momentum, the browning and bluing of the state. Indeed the whole country is only slightly better off than Arizona in terms of percentage, with the Anglo White population being around 63% to Arizona’s 57.8%. Young White children are minorities in both. Deporting 11 million people, or even 30 million people by the largest (unofficial) estimate, is not going to radically alter the composition of a country of 330 million.
But obviously, these things need to happen. We need the physical, legal, and virtual wall not only to cut off current illegal immigration—though Mexican inflows have actually dropped the last few years—but as a security investment against future migration. In the coming years, the global south will be even more populous and stronger pressures will be driving its people north towards Greater Europe. We need to secure our living space from any further encroachment if we are to have any chance of rebounding within the United States. If that route is shuttered, separatism will be the only solution, not a gradual demographic recovery.
If this were the end of Trump’s immigration platform, I would be impressed but not satisfied. Expelling illegals and banning Muslims from entering the country is all and well but clearly not enough to even the American keel. It leaves our legal immigration system—the source of most migrants and population growth since 1965—almost untouched. But it wasn’t the end of the speech. Trump said some extremely shitlordly things, which I will just reproduce in full below
We've admitted 59 million immigrants to the United States between 1965 and 2015. Many of these arrivals have greatly enriched our country. So true. But we now have an obligation to them and to their children to control future immigration as we are following, if you think, previous immigration waves.
We've had some big waves. And tremendously positive things have happened. Incredible things have happened. To ensure assimilation we want to ensure that it works. Assimilation, an important word. Integration and upward mobility.
Within just a few years immigration as a share of national population is set to break all historical records. The time has come for a new immigration commission to develop a new set of reforms to our legal immigration system in order to achieve the following goals.
To keep immigration levels measured by population share within historical norms. To select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in U.S. society and their ability to be financially self- sufficient.
We take anybody. Come on in, anybody. Just come on in. Not anymore.
You watch. We want people to come into our country, but they have to come into our country legally and properly vetted, and in a manner that serves the national interest. We've been living under outdated immigration rules from decades ago. They're decades and decades old.
To avoid this happening in the future, I believe we should sunset our visa laws so that Congress is forced to periodically revise and revisit them to bring them up to date. They're archaic. They're ancient. We wouldn't put our entire federal budget on autopilot for decades, so why should we do the same for the very, very complex subject of immigration?
What we do know, despite the lack of media curiosity, is that Hillary Clinton promises a radical amnesty combined with a radical reduction in immigration enforcement. Just ask the Border Patrol about Hillary Clinton. You won't like what you're hearing.
The result will be millions more illegal immigrants; thousands of more violent, horrible crimes; and total chaos and lawlessness. That's what's going to happen, as sure as you're standing there.
This election, and I believe this, is our last chance to secure the border, stop illegal immigration and reform our laws to make your life better. I really believe this is it. This is our last time. November 8. November 8. You got to get out and vote on November 8.
It's our last chance. It's our last chance.
I don’t know if you caught all that or just skipped it because people have a tendency to skip big bloc quotes, but go back and read that whole excerpt.
Did you see that?
Did you see (((1965)))? Why would he pick that year specifically?
Did you see that having too many immigrants makes it impossible to assimilate them and that we’re projected to hit record levels? Do you know how we dealt with that in the past?
Did you see "population share" and “historical norms”?
Did you see that our current system is “outdated”?
Did you see that we have to periodically update these laws to reflect changing conditions? That we need to support the national interest as opposed to… well something else?
Did you see that this our last chance? Our last stand?
I think Trump knows, I honestly do. I think he wants us to know too. I think he knows exactly what is at stake and he knows he cannot say it. He knows we need a quota system favoring our race in everything but name. He knows about 1924 and (((1965))). He knows if he says it all the fuckyou money in the world will not save him or his campaign from the retaliation he will get. And he is warning his audience, that if he is not made Caesar, that Clinton is going to pull the nuclear option and make sure a Trump campaign never happens again. Eleven million new “citizens” to vote for more of their co-ethnics and no more immigration regulation ever again. No more nativism. No more populism. No more nationalism.
No more White America.
Trump has lived in New York City his entire life. He knows what that process looks like. It happened in his own lifetime. When he was born in 1946, New York was 90% White. It is now 20%.
I believe he knows 2016 is a referendum on our people, and that there will never be another opportunity to vote on this ever again in our lives, or those of our children, or their children, their children's children...
This is the last stand of implicit White identity. You vote for Trump or you kneel to our enemies.
