Washington Post lambasts Trump for ‘keeping America white for 5 years longer’

While President Trump has proposed that the USA should only accept skilled immigrants for whom there is an economic need, the Washington Post argues that simply allowing people to settle in the country would expand the economy.

    The USA is set to become a majority non-white country by 2044, according to projections by the country’s Census Bureau. However, if President Donald Trump’s proposals on immigration control succeed, it could delay the process until 2049. The Washington Post, the leading liberal daily in the US capital, ominously warns against any such attempt to “delay the date that white Americans become a minority of the population”.

    The paper is particularly concerned that the Trump “proposal could cut off entry for more than 20 million legal immigrants over the next four decades. The change could have profound effects on the size of the U.S. population and its composition, altering projections for economic growth and the age of the nation’s workforce, as well as shaping its politics and culture”.

    Reading between the lines, the Washington Post wants America to become less Western and more multicultural as soon as possible. As the vast majority of immigrants vote for the Democratic Party, the demographic sea change in the country would also permanently marginalise the Republican Party, whose core voting bloc consists of middle-aged white men.

    Michael Clemens, an economist at the Center for Global Development, a think tank critical of the Trump proposal, said: “By greatly slashing the number of Hispanic and black African immigrants entering America, this proposal would reshape the future United States. Decades ahead, many fewer of us would be nonwhite or have nonwhite people in our families. Selectively blocking immigrant groups changes who America is. This is the biggest attempt in a century to do that.”

    Regardless of the Trump plan, American whites who currently represent 62% of the population, will become a minority sometime in the 2040s. This is not only the result of the higher birth rate of nonwhites, but of the higher death rate of the whites.

    According to Kenneth Johnson, a senior demographer at the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey School of Public Policy, “this is without historical precedent. The minority population is growing, and the non-Hispanic white population is not.,, I don’t think people fully appreciate how much natural increase [more births than deaths] contributes to the nation’s growing diversity. If you ask people why is America more diverse, they would say it’s because minorities are being born. What nobody ever thinks about is that a lot more whites are dying.”

    The Washington Post published a brutal quote from Robert Suro, an immigration and demography expert at the University of Southern California, sounding the death knell of America’s whites:

    “You can shut the door to everyone in the world and that won’t change. The president can’t do anything about that. If your primary concern is that the American population is becoming less white, it’s already too late.”

    Apart from defining the kind of immigrant that America wants, whether skilled or unskilled, a burning political issue is the fate of the 11 million illegal immigrants who are already in the country, referred to by the mainstream media as “dreamers”. Depending on whether and how soon they become naturalised and could vote, the Republican Party would lose power forever. The Washington Post’s predictions of an early crossing over of whites from majority to minority assume that they will stay in the United States and not be expelled.

    Donald Trump is in favour of a merit-based immigration police, as enunciated during his State of the Union address last week: “It is time to begin moving toward a merit-based immigration system — one that admits people who are skilled, who want to work, who will contribute to our society, and who will love and respect our country.”

    The Washington Post, however, simply equates demographic growth with economic expansion. Its correspondent, Jeff Stein, concludes:

    “But by reducing the country’s overall population, the plan could eventually reduce the overall growth rate of the U.S. economy. Under Trump’s plan, the U.S. economy could be more than $1 trillion smaller than it would have been two decades from now. That’s largely because the economy would have fewer workers.”

    What the Washington Post fails to explain, is why sub-Saharan Africa – with a population three to four times the size of America’s – only has an economy the size of Belgium’s. To simply equate third-world immigrants with “economic growth” seems simplistic in the extreme.

    • (((Jeff Stein))) openly complains Trump will slow the ethnic displacement of Whites in our own country. Yes indeed, that’s exactly why we voted for him! To slow things down, and give us a breather…

      WaPo calculated specifically how much longer Trump’s proposal will maintain White majority. No calculations on employment or economy, because minoritizing whites is their chief interest. They’ve gone from saying we should be indifferent to white minoritization, to stating positively it’s a wondrous thing, that should not be delayed. Their hatred of us is strong, let everyone see.

      Make deportations great again, and MAGA!
