13.1M legal and illegal immigrants entered the U.S. during the past decade, while there was a net loss of a million jobs during the same period, according to new Census Bureau data collected in March 2010.
Census data dating back to 2000 show that during the ten-year period from 1990-2000, 12.1M legal and illegal immigrants arrived in the U.S. while 21M jobs were created.
With one set of data held next to the other, there is highlighted the fact that immigration policy has little to do with propping up an increasingly service-based economy and much more to do with changing the ethnic composition of a historically white America, with it in mind that Europeans comprise only a small fraction of the pool of new immigrants.
The ten-year measure utilized by the Census Bureau is arbitrary, however, and does not gauge the dramatic movement of peoples and rates of employment that occur within the period.
For example, in the years 2008 and 2009, 2.4M legal and illegal immigrants entered the U.S. as 8.2M jobs were lost.
This betrayal of the American people by Republicans and Democrats creates resentment on the part of both immigrants and Americans, with many Americans angry at new arrivals for benefiting, at the expense of American job-seekers, from an infrastructure that took centuries to erect, and with immigrants angry at Americans for not being welcomed into the country with open arms.
During the previous decade, with a wealth of new jobs being created, anger at the systematic destruction of American culture, American identity, and the American way of life was met by the establishment with charges of “racism”, “hatred”, and “bigotry”
But these names carry little weight in 2010, with increasing waves of foreigners – a record 10.3 million green cards were issued from 2000 to 2009 – arriving as the economy crumbles at an increasing rate.
And Americans are waking up to the fact that, no matter how bad it gets, they will not be represented by either establishment party.
With time, the American Third Position will grow more attractive to mainstream Americans, and the establishment will be forced to face the consequences of its actions.
