NO ONE OPPOSES IMMIGRATION BY THEMSELF AND THEIR OWN KIND:

WHERE IS THE MORAL DIMENSION? (John Derbyshire, May 12, 2006, National Review)

I don't know what it means to be "against immigration." Again, since I actually did immigrate, I suppose I can't be "against immigration," can I? I do think that an immigration pause of the 1924-1965 type would be a really good idea for the U.S.A. about now, though.

Goodness only knows what "racist" means this week, so that's a tough one to address. I must say, though, I can't for the life of me see anything wrong, or even unpleasant, in wishing the country to have a certain ethnic mix, and not some other ethnic mix.
