Because they sign up for welfare the moment they get here!
I suspect the reason President Donald Trump is averse to using the the misguided diversity visa lottery — which the RINOs in Congress reportedly want to keep active but cut in half — to import immigrants from “shithole countries” like Haiti and Salvador isn’t because of the race of Haitians and El Salvadorans but rather because of their proven inability to provide meaningful value to America.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, a stunning 46 percent of U.S. households headed by Haitian immigrants collect welfare, while an even more astonishing 57 percent majority of households headed by El Salvadoran immigrants collect welfare.
That’s outrageous …
Now, here’s what all the triggered snowflakes in Hollywood and the media have neglected to mention since #ShitholeGate broke last night.
According to the original report by The Washington Post vis-à-vis Trump’s remarks, a White House official confirmed that during Thursday’s immigration meeting, the president “also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt that they help the United States economically.”
Newsflash: Asia also contains a lot of shithole countries, including India. Yes, India. While India is undoubtedly full of amazing people, including my extended family, I vividly recall seeing piles of cow dung everywhere when I visited in 2010. And I’m sorry, folks, but I don’t know what else to call a place chockablock with cow dung other than a shithole, you know?
That said, judging by WaPo’s report, it appears Trump is interested in importing immigrants from shithole countries like India but NOT shithole countries like Haiti and El Salvador.
This further suggests that the president is more concerned with what immigrants could potentially offer America versus their race.
Keep in mind that according to the CIS, among immigrant households with children, only 19 percent of Indian families collect welfare (I sure as hell ain’t on it!), whereas 68.4 percent of Haitian families and 65.1 percent of El Salvadoran families collect welfare.
Look, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why Trump isn’t interesting in importing poor, unskilled immigrants from countries like Haiti and Salvador, but IS interested in importing skilled workers from India and elsewhere.
Granted, like Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire, I personally feel all immigration should be determined by individual merit, not place of origin, but I’m not going to sit here like leftists and call Trump a racist for viewing things differently, especially when his underlying argument actually makes some damn sense!
