Disturbing trends in immigration to the US

Those of you who live in the US ought to get on the horn and try to do something about this before you end up like Eurabia. Debbie Schlussel reports that although immigration to the US was down in 2008, immigration from terror sponsors like Iran and Syria rose - in Syria's case quite significantly.
A Wall Street Journal graph (above), at least, shows that the number of Iranian-born immigrants is up by 18, 730 from 2007, for a total of 344,935 (though the WSJ article on this story doesn’t cover Mid-East immigration and sticks to the “immigration is down” narrative). While some of the nearly 19,000 new U.S. residents from Iran came here to get away from Ahmadinejad and the Ayatollahs, some did not. And we have no way of knowing which are which. If even only a fraction of that number are anti-American and inclined to do Iran’s bidding here, that’s far too many.

Then, there are the figures from Syria. The Census figures show that the number of Syrian-born residents in the U.S. increased by 11,349 persons to 66,077 Syrians here in 2008. That’s an alarming increase, given that most Syrians here (in recent years) are Shi’ite Muslims who support the (Alawite) Assad government and its hand in Hezbollah. (Most Syrian Christians who were going to leave left there long ago.)


Still, it’s annoying–no, it’s maddening. Since 9/11, as I’ve noted over and over again, we’ve done everything to make it hard for Hispanic illegal aliens, but little to discourage Islamic ones–you know the Muslim Arabs with the same theology and heritage as the 19 hijackers.


They murdered nearly 3,000 Americans, and yet we keep welcoming them to our shores.
I'm afraid it's going to take a new administration in the US for any of this to change.

Read the whole thing.

IF. Republican administrations seem as committed to Open Borders and multiculturalism as Democratic administrations. I'm afraid there's no good fix for the American elite's mindset.
