How the Drug War Drives Child Migrants to the US Border / Politics / Immigration

By: Mark_Thornton

Most attentive parents today rarely allow their children to go unsupervised, particularly in public. It starts with the wireless baby monitor for the crib and ends with the ever-present cell phone at college graduation.

This is what makes reports from the US-Mexican border so perplexing to most Americans. It is hard to believe that parents would send their children, even young children, to travel many hundreds of miles, up to 1,600 miles without guardianship, or under the control of “mules” who guide the children with the hope of a safe voyage to the United States.

Ron Paul on What's Missing in The Current Immigration 'Crisis' Debate / Politics / Immigration

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Over the past several weeks we have seen a significant increase in illegal immigration, as thousands of unaccompanied minors pour across what seems an invisible southern border into the United States. The mass immigration has, as to be expected, put an enormous strain on local resources, and it has heated up the immigration debate in the US.

How EU and Swiss Socialism Made Immigrants a Political Problem / Politics / Immigration

By: Frank_Hollenbeck

The Nationalistic Swiss people’s party recently succeeded in a referendum to limit Swiss immigration. The party blamed immigrants for a general lowering of incomes and for “stealing” jobs that otherwise would have gone to Swiss citizens. They also blame immigrants for a host of other minor problems such as unaffordable housing and traffic bottlenecks. The vote stipulates that Switzerland has to renegotiate its bilateral agreement with the EU on the free movement of people within three years, or revoke it altogether.

UK Housing Boom Prompts Landlords to Evict British Benefit Claiming Tenants in Favour of Eastern European Workers / Housing-Market / Immigration

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Rising house prices meets housing benefits cuts benefits culture cap resulting in private Landlords increasingly making the financially commonsense decision to evict not just benefit claimants heavily in arrears but virtually all of their benefit claiming tenants in favour of far more reliable hard working eastern european workers.

This is the natural consequences of rising house prices as rental yields tend to track house price rises where the average annualised rise of 8.5% translates into average rents being raised by 8.5% which pushes benefits claimants increasingly into arrears and thus prompting Landlords to seek more reliable rent paying tenants as the Coalition government has desperately been attempting to cut what had become out control housing benefits payments to 4.5 million households under the Labour government that at its extreme had manifested itself in rental payments of over £100,000 per annum each to over 100 families that are now subject to the benefits cap.

One Million Romanian and Bulgarian's to Descend upon Elysium - Britain's Immigration Catastrophe / Politics / Immigration

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It should not come as any surprise to most that Britain continues to experience what amounts to out of control immigration as the latest manifestation of which is the start of a horde of Romanian and Bulgarian workers and benefits claimers that if follow what transpired during the past decade will turn out to be 20 times the academic estimates. The recent movie Elysium depicts what in many respects has been taking place in the UK this past decade as hordes of economic migrants from across the world have descended upon Elysium (Britain) that under the weight of which risks Britain's economic social and cultural destruction.

Extremist Ideology of Multiculturalism is Why Over 90% of Immigrants Tend NOT Assimilate / Politics / Immigration

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Many of the mainstream politicians actively promote the policy of multiculturalism as the primary way for immigrants to integrate / assimilate themselves with diverse cultures into British society, whereas the facts spanning several decades suggest the complete opposite takes place as the policy of multiculturalism (all cultures being equal) results in immigrants tending to congregate in ghettos that over time displace the indigenous populations, which are further reinforced by subsequent generations most of whom remain within their expanding boundaries of ghetto's which we see in ALL immigrant population groups, which is reinforced by state schools teaching of multiculturalism and by religious schools. The only change that happens over the time is that ghettos can become wealthy i.e. the Jewish immigrants of the 1930's to 1940's now live in rich ghettos such as Gants Hill, Golder's Green, Hampstead and Hendon, similar changes occurred with Hindu and Sikh migrations of the 1950's to 1970's and then for Pakistani's of the 1960's to 1980's and likely for a whole host of more recent influx of migrants from Africa, East Asia (China) and off course Eastern Europe.

The Economics of Immigration and Employment, Do Immigrants Steal Jobs? / Economics / Immigration

By: FPIF

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFacts or no facts, many people simply do not want to believe that undocumented immigrants coming to this country don’t steal jobs and undermine the American economy.

Impact of Immigration on Economic Growth Jobs and Housing / Economics / Immigration

By: Gerard_Jackson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe charge that immigration destroys jobs is a common economic fallacy. On the surface it appears as an obvious truism that if a country has a high level of unemployment then increasing immigration can only cause more unemployment. Obvious but false. This fallacy is based on the lump-of-labour fallacy that assumes a fixed amount of work. The same fallacy lies behind the belief that technology causes unemployment.

The Deflationary Effect of Migrant Workers / Economics / Immigration

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This week the UK government came clean and stated that it has got its facts wrong on both the number of migrant workers and the number of jobs created. More than half of the jobs created by New Labour have gone to migrant workers, with the number of migrant workers now estimated at 1.5 million. In my previous article, I highlighted the key negatives of migration into the UK, in that the public sector is inefficient to such an extent that it cancels out the estimated extra tax revenue of £6 billions.

Wage rates, Immigration and Jobs / Economics / Immigration

By: Gerard_Jackson

On the other hand we have the opposing fallacy that immigrants steal jobs. In fact, back in July 2004 John Stone, former head of the Australian Treasury, accused illegal immigrants of stealing jobs from Australians. So which is it? The first fallacy actually rests on very important economic truth that too many economists ignore: so long as there is sufficient capital and land to employ people and the free market prevails persistent widespread unemployment cannot. What is missing, however, is the price of labour. I have no doubt that if the hourly wage rates for those agricultural jobs that Americans are said to look down their noses at were to jump to $30 there would be an abundance of applicants.

Monetary Causes of the US Immigration Crisis / Politics / Immigration

By: Richard_C_Cook

There is nothing mysterious about the U.S. immigration crisis, or the presence of twelve million or more illegal aliens, or the fact that many more are coming to a neighborhood near you.

They are coming to the U.S. because they are human beings who have to eat.

They have to eat because they want to live.

They cannot eat and live in their own countries because there are no jobs.

US Economy, Immigration and the Fallacy of Cheap Labour / Economics / Immigration

By: Gerard_Jackson

The question of illegal immigration has finally come to the boil in the US. In doing so it has exposed as nonsense the arguments of those who say that legalising the current status of illegals will promote growth. This attitude is boneheaded to say the least. Yet this is precisely where the Wall Street Journal. A while ago it published an article by Mary Anastasia O'Grady arguing that the real problem is not immigration per se but
