Paper Uses Immigrant Props to Bash Donald Trump’s Strong Stand on Immigration

Contra The New York Daily News, Donald Trump’s recent remarks on Mexico and immigration are quite sensible — hardly “jaw-dropping.”

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said during his Tuesday presidential announcement. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems. And they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

The blindingly obvious truth of Mexico’s imported drug trade aside, Trump’s final point angers liberals precisely because it’s true: The age of consent for sex in all but one Mexican state is only 12 years old. If anything, Trump was too lenient. Mexican men engaging in sex acts with 12-year-olds are child rapists under U.S. law. As author Ann Coulter documented in her latest book, Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole, “The rape of little girls isn’t even considered a crime in Latino culture — and that culture is becoming our culture”:

A book about police rape investigations reports that American policemen are learning to “be understanding of cultural differences” and keep an “open mind” about child rape because “the Hispanic culture is more accepting of statutory rape.” Describing his experiences working in one Hispanic community, an American detective said, “I have a large group of Hispanic men in their thirties and forties who are having intercourse with young girls. I’m being told it’s a cultural thing.” Hospitals would alert him to babies born to thirteen-year-olds impregnated by much older men, and he’d show up at the girl’s home, expecting to find parents ready to string up the guy. Instead, he said, “the family will say it’s a blessing and we’re so happy. I’ll explain it’s illegal; they cut me right off. I get a lot of those too.”

To bring up these critically important facts about rape, even in the age of “rape culture,” is to invite condemnation from the Left. The Daily News quickly rounded up some Mexican immigrants to trash Trump — not hard to do when a quarter of the country’s population is living in the U.S.

“If he wants to win the presidency, he needs the Latino vote,” huffed Jesus Palacios. “He’s not going to win it by being racist.” Any criticism of a protected group, however valid, is denounced as “racism” in America, perhaps the only point of assimilation Palacios adapted. The Daily News notes Palacios’ wife and three kids are still in Mexico — no doubt collecting remittances taken out of our economy to the tune of $23.6 billion. Readers are told that a random foreigner’s sensitivities — people who have absolutely no stake in the future of the country — hold more weight than Americans’ outrage at the havoc mass immigration is wreaking on the country.

“If you want to be President of the United States, you need to welcome people of all races and backgrounds. That includes Mexicans,” said U.S.-born Genesis Guerrero.

That’s patently false. If Trump learns from Mitt Romney’s mistakes and appeals to white voters instead of promising more amnesty and government goodies to Hispanic aliens, he stands a good chance of winning in the general election. Had Mitt Romney gotten only four more percent of the white vote in 2012, Barack Obama would have been a one-term president.

“Trump’s grandfather emigrated from Germany and both his first wife, Ivana, and his third and current wife, Melania, are immigrants,” The Daily News sneers. “No. 1 is from the former Czechoslovakia. No. 3 hails from Slovenia.”

When reporters’ feathers are ruffled by someone speaking plainly about immigration, they snippily add that so-and-so’s grandparents were immigrants, therefore, third-generation Americans have no right to decide who enters the country. It’s the usual crock about how “America is a nation of immigrants” and that we should celebrate one of the most corrupt countries in the world dumping its undesirables (and the accompanying thousands of tons of trash) onto America’s welfare doles.

Would America be worse off if it chose its immigrants like Trump chose his wives? What, exactly, is objectionable about telling peasants without a high school education and drug smugglers, “Sorry, but no thanks?”
