A corner of southern Crowdifornia arrived at an undesirable milestone in 2013, when Los Angeles County became the most populous county in America with an even 10 million souls as of last July.
The LA Times tippy-toed around in its coverage, not being too boosterish though crowdiness is good for business. The paper probably didn’t want [...]
It’s spring in the northern hemisphere, so in many backward areas, young men are gathering en masse to head for first-world nations that offer generous welfare programs and jobs for the unskilled.
In passive Europe, a Camp of the Saints scenario is shaping up as the culturally weak societies there have been convinced by socialists that [...]
I heard a radio version of this story on Friday. The idea is to take a bunch of Mexican immigrants and teach them computer coding to liberate them from the tomato fields and get swell jobs in tech. They are getting a bachelor’s degree in computer science in three years, even though many start not [...]
It’s curious that immigrant Somali Barkhad Abdi has gotten so little publicity regarding his Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in the film Captain Phillips, based on the true story of diverse piracy on the high seas.
Perhaps Abdi suffers from a lesser level of blackness in the Hollywood scheme of values, where historical slavery is [...]
Iraqi refugee Abdullatif Aldosary was sentenced on Monday to five years in prison for illegal possession of firearms, but the justice system is not yet finished with him. He is also accused of exploding a bomb in front of an Arizona Social Security Office in November 2012 and murder, among other things.
Aldosary is a dangerous [...]
Two small enclaves of Spain lie on the coast of Morocco and are a gateway to Europe for voracious African men anxious to reach the gravy train. Ceuta and Melilla, shown on the map, have increasingly been a magnet for Africans seeking free stuff in the European welfare states.
Spain has spent a lot of money [...]
How backward is Afghanistan? One measure is the fact that everyone has the same birthday, January 1, because the use of modern calendars hasn’t quite reached there yet.
It’s a mystery why anyone in Washington ever thought that nation-building had a chance in such a retro place. Liberals must have thought that killing the Taliban without [...]
Sweden has been remarkably generous in welcoming foreigners to settle in their nation, going so far as to invite all Syrian refugees to come and live there. Curiously, the offer came even after the days of foreigner rioting in Stockhom last spring, so the Swedes’ liberal urges are stubborn indeed. Plus, the poorly mannered newbies [...]
In Bulgaria, theft-minded Roma are tutoring the kids to improve their pickpocket abilities in anticipation of the January opening of the border to Britain. Little moppets as young as seven are taught to move in close to their targets and insert their small hands into purses and pockets. In fact, most of the pickpockets are [...]
Add to the list of Jobs Americans Won’t Do: parking ticket writer. The New York Times informs its diversity-appreciative readership that Bangladeshi immigrants are creating a mini-surge to take the jobs, at least 400 out of 3000 total.
The job pays $29,000 to start and has good benefits. Only a high-school education is required — why [...]
University elites must be happy with the new report from the Institute of International Education, which works closely with the State Department, showing that 819,644 international students came to study in American colleges during the 2012-13 school year.
The good news is the foreign students contribute $24 billion annually to the U.S. economy, which green-eyeshade folks [...]
Are Mexicans the most hypocritical people on earth?
A strong case can be made for YES.
Consider a recent question from a hispanic immigration attorney to the “Ask a Mexican” columnist. Many Mexicans claim they leave the dear homeland because of crime and corruption, but see no problem in lying to get American legalization. Are they too [...]
