For John, BLUF: We can't fix the problems of the Third World by letting them all move here. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From PJ Media, by Sarah Hoyt, 23 November 2018.
The thing is, Ms Hoyt is an immigrant, from the Iberian Peninsula, just not the Spanish speaking (Hispanic) part.
Here is the key paragraph for summing up the issue, from Ms Hoty's perspective:
Or so they think. Of course, they’re nowhere near it. What they are actually enabling is the plundering of the first world by the third and the destruction of civilization and the engine of creation and production that has lifted most of the world population to a level our ancestors would consider unimaginable wealth. (Yes, even most of the third world is richer than, say, Elizabethan England. But never mind that.)For the first time, half the world is middle class or more well off. On the other hand, not everyone has developed the idea of freedom and the idea of corruption being a drag on moving forward.
If we wish to encourage the betterment of people in the third world we need to encourage freedom of thought and expression and open economies. We need to discourage paternalism and corruption. And we need to do it with a light touch and a long time horizon.
