Ann Coulter Exposes the Real Costs of Mass Migration

Published

on

Ann Coulter sets the record straight on immigration.

In a column for The Hill, she exposes the high costs of mass migration.

Many advocates of open borders argue that cheap labor is necessary for an economy to function. However, that cheap labor comes at a steep cost.

Coulter cites a Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) study in 2017 revealing that illegal immigrants “cost the American taxpayer — on net — $116 billion a year.”

The conservative commentator points out that the number presented by FAIR may actually be a conservative estimate. She argues that “the actual number is more likely triple that.”

Coulter contends that the 12.5 million illegal immigrants that FAIR based its study is a gross underestimate. She says “The 12 million figure is based on the self-reports of illegal aliens to U.S. census questionnaires.”

That being said, more “serious studies” estimate that these numbers are much higher. At one end of the spectrum, “Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Yale study last year put the number of illegals at 22 million.” A Bear Stearns investment bank study placed it “at 20 million back in 2005.”

However, other studies show a much larger illegal immigrant figure. Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporters Donald L. Barlett and James B. Steele found that “3 million illegals were crossing each year — so simple math would put it at well over 60 million today.”

Based on these numbers, Coulter argues that the FAIR study underestimates the costs of illegal immigration “by at least a factor of three”, which puts the real cost to “about $350 billion a year.”

Coulter also alluded to other studies that demonstrate the steeps costs of mass migration. The Heritage Foundation’s Robert Rector found that under America’s government redistribution system, households led by illegal immigrants received $14,387 more in government services than they paid in taxes. Legal immigrants also received $4,344 more in government services than they paid in taxes. This study assumes that the number of illegal immigrants has stayed the same since the Bush era.

Coulter also points out other hidden costs such as increased crime rates and drug smuggling that has contributed to the opioid epidemic as some of the socially detrimental aspects of mass migration.

All in all, mass migration has steep costs that most in Washington D.C. refuse to acknowledge.

British Politicians Believe that the Wuhan Virus Pandemic Might Have Come from a Leak at a Chinese Laboratory

Published

on

On March 5, 2020, the Daily Mail reported that British politicians believe that the Wuhan Virus pandemic might have been caused by a leak originating from a Chinese laboratory.

Although senior insiders in the British government maintained that “the balance of scientific advice” is still sticking to the original theory that the virus was first spread to humans from a wet market in Wuhan, a leak coming out of a laboratory in Wuhan is “no longer being discounted.”

. A member of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s emergency committee recently said that while the latest intelligence report did not argue that the virus was “zoonotic” – coming from animals – it did not toss out the theory that the virus came from a leak at a Wuhan laboratory.

The member of the “Cobra” committee, which receives classified information from the security services, commented: “There is a credible alternative view [to the zoonotic theory] based on the nature of the virus. Perhaps it is no coincidence that there is that laboratory in Wuhan. It is not discounted.”

Wuhan is where the Chinese Institute of Virology is based in.

This institute is generally viewed as one of the most secure virology units in the globe.

The government-backed People’s Daily newspaper stated back in 2018 that this institute was “capable of conducting experiments with highly pathogenic microorganisms” like the deadly Ebola virus.

Scientists at the institute were the first to indicate that the virus’s genome was 96 per cent similar to one usually found in bats.

Despite being known for its tight security, there have been unverified local reports of workers at the institute becoming infected after being sprayed by blood. Subsequently, they would carry out the infection and spread it to the local population.

A second institute in the city, the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control is also speculated to have conducted experiments on animals such as bats to understand how the Wuhan Virus is spread.

Professor Richard Ebright, of Rutgers University’s Waksman Institute of Microbiology, New Jersey, said that while there is evidence that the Wuhan Virus was not created in one of the Wuhan laboratories, such a concept is not outside the realm of possibility.

Professor Ebright claims to have seen evidence that scientists at the Centre for Disease Control and the Institute of Virology studied the viruses with only “level 2” security – instead of the suggested level 4 security level – which “’provides only minimal protections against infection of lab workers.”

He continued: “Virus collection, culture, isolation, or animal infection would pose a substantial risk of infection of a lab worker, and from the lab worker then the public.”

He concluded that the evidence established “a basis to rule out [that coronavirus is] a lab construct, but no basis to rule out a lab accident.”

According to a study from the South China University of Technology, the Wuhan Virus “probably” originated from the Centre for Disease Control. Curiously, shortly after this finding was published, the research paper was deleted from a social networking site for scientists and researchers.

A few days ago, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government said it “did not recognize” claims the virus emerged from a Chinese laboratory.

Regardless of whether China purposely released the virus or not, the authoritarian country still poses a threat to American interests.

American policymakers will need to re-consider trade and immigration policies with the country.
