Real Amnesty Costs: White House Report Is Misleading

The White House released a report today that:

According to outside estimates, providing earned citizenship for these workers would increase their wages and, over 10 years, boost U.S. GDP by $1.4 trillion, increase total income for all Americans by $791 billion, generate $184 billion in additional state and federal tax revenue from currently undocumented immigrants, and add about 2 million jobs to the U.S. economy.

However, the economic argument against amnesty has been that costs exceed gains. GDP’s increase doesn’t signify the federal government receives more than it pays out, let alone an improvement in quality of life.

The infamous Richwine study (Heritage) found that:

If amnesty is enacted, the average adult unlawful immigrant would receive $592,000 more in government benefits over the course of his remaining lifetime than he would pay in taxes.

Over a lifetime, the former unlawful immigrants together would receive $9.4 trillion in government benefits and services and pay $3.1 trillion in taxes. They would generate a lifetime fiscal deficit (total benefits minus total taxes) of $6.3 trillion. (All figures are in constant 2010 dollars.) This should be considered a minimum estimate. It probably understates real future costs because it undercounts the number of unlawful immigrants and dependents who will actually receive amnesty and underestimates significantly the future growth in welfare and medical benefits.

The governmental system is highly redistributive. Well-educated households tend to be net tax contributors: The taxes they pay exceed the direct and means-tested benefits, education, and population-based services they receive. For example, in 2010, in the whole U.S. population, households with college-educated heads, on average, received $24,839 in government benefits while paying $54,089 in taxes. The average college-educated household thus generated a fiscal surplus of $29,250 that government used to finance benefits for other households.

Other households are net tax consumers: The benefits they receive exceed the taxes they pay. These households generate a “fiscal deficit” that must be financed by taxes from other households or by government borrowing. For example, in 2010, in the U.S. population as a whole, households headed by persons without a high school degree, on average, received $46,582 in government benefits while paying only $11,469 in taxes. This generated an average fiscal deficit (benefits received minus taxes paid) of $35,113.

Preening her politically correct plumage

Grab your barf-bag before reading this puff piece on Jess George, the white jefa of Charlotte’s Latin American Coalition:

She’s not Latino, an immigrant, or even a minority. She’s not fluent in Spanish, either. …

Since taking over the Latin American Coalition four years ago, she has steadily increased its visibility with a series of rallies, marches and publicity stunts. … It’s an unusual approach that has drawn national attention. The country’s largest Hispanic civil rights organization, the National Council of La Raza, called the coalition an “inspiration” for other immigrant advocates.

I can remember when “civil rights” meant favoring voting rights for blacks who were US citizens. But we’ve evolved way past that. These days, “civil rights” means “the right of foreigners to invade and colonize another country.” I guess that’s progress.

But there are sometimes speed bumps on the road to progress. George’s ascent to the position of the jefa of the Latin American Coalition was resented by Latinos who couldn’t figure out why this gringa was telling them what to do:

“I’ve had other Latino leaders in Charlotte tell me: ‘Jess, it’s nice that you are doing this for the community. But when is a real leader going to show up?’?” says George.

“At first, it was really hard to hear. I’m the kind of person who likes to be told how I can do things better. But when you point to me and say, ‘You’re white,’ I can’t change that.”

Former coalition board chairwoman Olma Echeverri admits that there was backlash when George was named executive director. Prior to that, George spent five years as an associate director at the coalition.

“I supported her taking over, but I was approached by people asking why I didn’t find another candidate who was Latino,” said Echeverri, now chairwoman of the Hispanic-American Democrats of North Carolina.

Nevertheless, despite such difficulties, this New York transplant continues to stand up “for a class of people she feels is being bullied by the system.”

How noble. And how courageous. After all, other than the federal government, the media, academia, and big business, NO ONE is helping illegal aliens in this country.

Old Kentucky Ointment

This past January, on a Patroon column criticizing Jack Hunter amongst others, I wrote:

Would you agree that the best message that can be sent is a hard right challenger against McConnell/Benton?

It’s never so simple as one Matt Bevin, a native of New Hampshire, reached out to “Tea Party” sorts a few weeks, maybe a month back, and put together a challenge.  Bevin is a typical stock jobber Republican of the Romney mold, but unlike Romney, actually seems to have a nose to for politics.

Not exactly Hard Right-don’t mention the War, drones, NSA, and no mention on immigration, but if Bevin wants to win, he might just start using some now tried and true tactics in Kentucky…might be worth following.


I wrote on Kentucky elections here.


The next great Civil Rights crusade

After a number of recent court decisions mandating same-sex “marriage,” many conservatives predicted it was just a matter of time until we’d hear demands for the recognition of group marriage (polyamory).

But there’s a cause more pressing than the “right” of three or more to consider themselves married. That cause is neatly summarized in the following headline and linked story:

13-year-old girl raped by more than a dozen illegal aliens in Texas

Not only does this crisis pertain to the ongoing and escalating War against the Family, but also reveals the great cultural divide that’s only going to escalate, as articles such as this illustrate. In Mexico, you see, the age of consent is 12, rather than 18, as required by those stuffy old Anglos. And laws that enforce the values of white culture are inherently racist, as any tenured radical will kindly explain to you. (Hint: It’s called “white privilege.”)

That’s why I predict lowering the age of consent to 12 will be the next battle in the never-ending Civil Rights crusade. It would strike a double blow against white culture, on both traditional sex roles as well as on traditional cultural norms. It’s a win-win for multiculturalism.

More Jack Hunter Thoughts and Reactions

Here is an article at VDARE on the Jack Hunter smear campaign. It’s good because it links to a lot of the sites that picked up the story, but the author, Alexander Hart, pretty much throws Hunter under the bus on account of Rand’s backtracking on the immigration issue.

Here is Hunter’s own statement. It’s pretty much a disaster. Hunter goes into full backpedal and placate mode. This is highly unfortunate. First, the PC Beast can not be placated. Just ask Jason Richwine. Just ask Paula Deen. The PC Beast must be resisted head on. Second, whenever you say some version of “I’m not a racist” you have already lost because you have conceded the other sides terms. Third, as I wrote yesterday, nothing in these revelations is really that damaging. Some of it is rather mundane. Just explain yourself forcefully without backpedalling or dodging.

That said, I do not think that now is the time to attack Jack for backpedalling. Here is what I posted on Facebook:

I am disappointed that Jack Hunter has chosen to backtrack and concede to the PC Rightthink Police rather than fight back, but that said, now is not the time for anti-PC forces to attack Jack. Now is the time for us to attack the PC Beast that is attacking him. We can attempt to drag Jack back to paleodom after we have countered the PC Cultural Marxists Gestapo.
I felt the need to say that because some folks have gone after Jack pretty hard for his backpedalling.
and Michael Hill (via Hunter Wallace)
I’ll explain why I think overly attacking Jack Hunter (as opposed to expressing disappointment), is unhelpful at this point in a separate post.

The South vs. America’s Immigration Disaster

Had it been left up to the South, notes William L. Huston, the nation-busting 1965 Immigration Reform Act would never have been passed. In this VDare article, Huston then examines the regional voting patterns on immigration and concludes that the South is the last stronghold of traditional America.

And oh, yes, he makes the next logical step: that it is time for Southerners to once again “calculate the value of the Union” versus its cost. I’d bet that 99% of those who think about it will conclude it’s time to reclaim both delegated and stolen rights from an out-of-control central government more concerned about its own power than the well-being of its subjects.

It’s time to secede.

Ann Coulter Can Do Math…

unlike GOP amnesty an immigration supporters.

We keep hearing insistent claims that if Republicans don’t pass amnesty yesterday it will be the end of the party.

Can I see the math on that? I can see why bringing in 30 million new Democratic voters would be good for the Democrats, but how does it help Republicans? Maybe conservatives shouldn’t blindly trust the calculations of the guy who graduated fifth from the bottom of his class at the U.S. Naval Academy.

If I were a Democrat, I would have tried to sneak this bill past Republicans by proposing amnesty only after reaching some easily rigged benchmarks. But, apparently, Chuck Schumer knows elected Republicans better than I do.

Step One: Everyone’s amnestied. Step Two: After they’re amnestied, they can bring in all their relatives.

If Hispanics voted 50.1 percent for Democrats, amnesty would be a bad deal for Republicans. But, in fact, they vote 70 percent to 80 percent for Democrats. How did it become an urgent priority for Republicans to bring in 30 million new voters, 80 percent of whom will vote Democratic?

Democrats want 30 million new voters and they will say anything to get there:

Immigration Enthusiast Evangelicals Squirming After Soros, Treason Lobby Funding Revealed

Cecilia Davenport, VDare, July 1, 2013

Much as the Establishment GOP has betrayed its base time and again over the National Question, some American evangelical leaders have betrayed their congregations by shilling for the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge bill. Recently,’s Allan Wall has noted that the so-called Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a conglomeration of denomination preachers (a few) bureaucrats (a lot), activists, university officials and authors, is literally a front for the George Soros-funded National Immigration Forum

This amnesty is destined to be hugely unpopular in the coming years, across all American demographics. Bringing millions of foreign aliens, mostly unskilled labour, into the US, especially without any firm improvement to border security (read fine print) while adding a revolving amnesty for future lawbreakers, will destroy wages, drive up unemployment, and tax our system. Minorities will be especially hard hit. The majority of all demographic segments oppose amnesty and with good reason.

Those who support this amnesty will forever be seen as ruining the lives of Americans, especially the lives of nonwhite Americans.

Operation Wetback has been tried in the past. It worked. Enforcing the laws combined with an Operation Wetback II would work again.

Evangelical Immigration Table in Pocket of George Soros

As we’ve noted already here at CHT, many “conservative” Christian leaders are essentially Cultural Marxists.  (See “On Christian Cultural Marxism. Russell Moore and other Useful Idiots“.)  For instance, many of these people now support the dispossession of European Americans and support the Third World invasion of the USA and other Western nations.

So, when it was leaked that the open-borders, anti-Western Evangelical Immigration Table (which includes “conservatives” like Richard Land, Russell Moore, Leith Anderson, et al) is funded by George Soros, I wasn’t surprised.  Some people I’ve talked to are surprised that EIT leadership lied about receiving the money, but I wasn’t.  These people are opportunistic scaliwags.  People should withhold tithing from any church in any way affiliated with these traitorous Christian Cultural Marxists.

Rand Paul goes neocon on immigration

When it comes to immigration, Rand Paul is the newest neoconservative.  In fact, he’s worse than neocons.  While some neocons  (like David Frum) have wised up on immigration, Rand Paul is peddling ridiculous neocon cliches from a decade ago (like “Hispanics are natural Republicans”) that some neocons today no longer even believe.

In short, Rand Paul is worthless.  For anyone who put effort into his campaign, what a waste of time and energy.

Some recent articles:

Matthew Cooper, National Journal: “Why Rand Paul’s Hispanic Pitch Is Doomed:
He’s pushing the idea that Hispanics are natural Republicans. The polling says that’s wrong

Jesse Mossman:  “Rand Paul Does A Rubio: Tells Illegals ‘We will find a place for you’

Dennis Mangan:  “What’s wrong with libertarians?”

The Evil of Humanitarian Interventionism (at home AND abroad!)

Jacob Hornberger of the Future of Freedom Foundation has a new article that nicely rips up the pro-war talking point that says the US must invade other countries to stop dictators from killing innocent people. That argument overlooks the obvious fact that the “liberating” forces will necessarily take out even more innocent folks to get to the dictator.

So far, so good. But then Hornberger tosses in a jarring speed bump:

“Under what authority did FDR refuse German Jews’ entry into the United States? By this time, the United States had abandoned the concept of open immigration on which our country was founded…”

Mr. Hornberger and I have corresponded before about the desirability of open borders, and I do not intend to re-open that debate. But the passage he wrote above is simply wrong.

The Founders did not intend to create a multicultural proposition nation. Instead, they sought to protect and preserve their traditional English rights.

The Founders viewed themselves as the inheritors of traditional British institutions, which they intended to keep. That’s why, rather than allowing any and all into their communities, the Founders restricted immigration. The Naturalization Act of 1790 limited naturalized citizenship to “free white persons” of “good moral character.”

That act, by the way, was the first order of business of the new Congress. So to assert the US was founded on open immigration is a factual error.

I admire Hornberger’s anti-imperial articles, and agree with most of what he writes. But it’s a puzzle how such an obviously intelligent man does not wonder why the evil regime in DC should be supported in its efforts to impose demographic revolution at home. DC’s “liberation” projects abroad dovetail with its “liberation” projects at home – both are intended to boost the power of the central government and its cronies. Just think – after all these wars of liberation and all the civil rights mandates, are we any more secure, or more free? No – but DC is clearly in control of more of our property and lives.

That’s why we should judge government by its deeds, rather than by its press releases.

Street Theater

French rightist, Professor of History,  Dominique Venner, shot himself in the head at the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris on May 21.

His last blog post details one who confronted the reality of both the legal acceptance of “gay marriage” and the other notion, that soon Islamic dominance in France will do away with such a thing (i.e. learn to love the bomb).  Staring the nightmare in the face, he pursued an act of theater to encourage his positions.

Revilo Oliver, a veteran Far Rightist (a professor at the University of Illinois and in Bill Buck’s wedding party) died by his own hand in the nascent Internet Age, where as Mssr. Venner was able to provide a blog post (and apparently a more traditional written note) in a more grandiose final act.

As fewer Rightists, for a variety of reasons, are given the opportunity to exist as a Professor, a fact Mssr. Venner surely understood, consider his performance as something we might not see again.

A Reply to Sean on Immigration and Heritage

Sean objects to my take on the Jason Richwine firing by Heritage in the comments on this post.

Sean objects to the “nationalization” of the immigration debate, a point he has made many time before. But immigration is one of the few issues that really is and ought to be national. The Constitution specifically grants to Congress the power “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization … throughout the United States.” While I certainly don’t object to states like Arizona adopting measures that attempt to enforce Federal rules, that immigration is a state issue seems silly to me. Does Sean really believe that California could have lax immigration laws and Alabama very restrictive immigration laws and that would be just fine? Once my state and some of my neighboring states have seceded, then I’ll be less concerned with how California wants to conduct its immigration business, but until then, we are all in this together.

Sean also implies that the demographic change we are concerned about is already a fait accompli. Well, to some degree it is, but that is why this debate is so urgent. We must halt the current trends as soon as possible before the numbers really do pass a tipping point. Maybe that point has already passed, but I’m not sure what the utility is in throwing up our hands. Let’s not stand around with our thumbs up our rears as the situation gets even worse even faster.

Sean also suggest that we are powerless because we don’t pay Heritage’s bills. I am keenly aware of how little power we paleos have, but what is the point in wallowing in that? I’ll just keep banging away on my keyboard in the blogosphere trying to help wake people up.


…and all the politicians making crazy sounds

Various encounters with the better parts of internet punditry, have led me to conclude that Benghazi was a take down of Hillary Clinton from the neocons–though I’ll dispute and say from the Biden faction of the DNC, and secondly, the release of the IRS “scandal” info, from the Hillary supporters (the Trilats) and hence the defections from Liberal Media (e.g. Chris Matthews.)

So then why (he asked in a 101 sort of way) would the House Republicans pick a Friday to cave on the Amnesty Bill, with the President at his weakest?
