Top Ten Nations of Origin for Legal Permanent Residents in 2012
(Green Card Holders)
Dominican Republic: 41,566
South Korea: 20,931
1,031,631 persons total were granted Permanent Resident Alien status in 2012.
Note that of these only @250K were from high performing Asian populations (I am guesstimating).
If the legal immigration system were managed with a performance benchmark (say an IQ test), what would the national breakdown be do you think ?
Look! This thread or discussion is NOT about ASIAN IMMIGRANTS!
It’s about birthing hotels and then they LEAVE!! WAKE UP!
Birthing hotels cater mainly to Asians.
These Asians patronize these because it opens an option to immigrate at some future time, which would otherwise be nearly entirely unavailable considering the immigration waiting lists for most Asian categories.
Its an end-run around the waiting lists.
I say its a GOOD end-run around the waiting lists, because the way the waiting lists are managed is stupid, from a national policy point of view.
Top Ten Nations of Origin for person Naturalized as new American Citizens in 2012.
Dominican Republic: 33,351
El Salvador: 16,685
A total of 757,434 Legal Permanent Residents became naturalized Citizens of the United States in 2012.
Regardless of the nation of origin, Obama got 73% of the Asian vote in 2012, second only to his 93% of the black vote and up from 62% in 2008. That is my concern.
We are adding the equivalent of a city the size of Dallas, Texas in green cards every year and a city the size of Charlotte, North Carolina in new naturalizations.
We are also screwing up massively by not picking up most of the Asian immigrants as Republican voters.
They are more socially and economically conservative than most white populations that do vote Republican.
Of these groups the Filipinos and Vietnamese are reliably Republican, the others not. There is NO difference in essential social attitudes between Filipinos, Vietnamese, Chinese or Indians.
The real problem is a total lack of outreach, plus incredibly poor messaging.
They must have left my score out of the White Math Average. I’d have pulled it down a good hundred points singlehandedly. [Got a super hi IQ, yet doing math is like running a marathon—takes all my effort. Go figure.]
When both parties start making appeals based on race then it is over. We will be fully tribal then. You espouse racism....
The Asian perception (in very many cases) is that the Republican party is a white club, that mainly speaks to and for white people.
There is a considerable diffidence and insecurity on the part of many Asians on this matter. There is a perception (not all that wrong) that they are held to be unwelcome in this country by Republicans.
There are very few Republicans speaking to Asians in Asian venues, and even fewer Asian Republicans doing so. And there are NO Republicans backing Asian issues, such as the shocking discrimination against Asians in college admissions.
Besides this a large proportion of Asians live in states that are dominated by Democrats, such as California. And nearly all live in big cities. The Asian view of politics is non-ideological. It is mainly a matter of power. There is no point backing Republicans if all that gets you is getting on the bad side of the people with power.
Complicating Asian outreach is that Filipinos are not Vietnamese are not Chinese are not Indians, etc. The various Asian groups don’t really talk to each other. They are not “Asian” in identity. They share locations and attitudes and interests but not identity.
That is so, but the issue isn't the QUALITY of the Immigrants, it's the fact that they are abusing our system.
I don't even fault them for doing it, Idiots have wrongly interpreted our laws to permit it. These people are just taking advantage of it.
They arent criminals. Their incarceration rate is a fraction of US white people. They contribute more in taxes than they absorb in benefits. They fill our Engineering and Science programs. They are a massive economic net plus.
There are dozens of visa programs that let in a trickle of the sort of people we want, compared to the total immigration flow. We dont want a trickle, we want a flood, of the best.
That they are good immigrants is irrelevant to the point. I would have the same objection to Canadians pulling this stunt. (Probably more so even.)
And these people followed our laws to get their green cards. They didn’t take advantage of the fact that latter day idiots interpreted the laws wrongly.
What the matter with the people we elect that they would trade citizenship for almost nothing?
More people would read this if you had the correct headline.
What ought the correct headline be?
Another good find. I see some potential leads in that article for further research.
