Census Reports that China is Sending More Immigrants to U.S. than Any Other Nation

Published

According to a report from the Census Bureau, China sent more immigrants to America than any other country during the last decade.

John Binder of Breitbart News reported that between 2018 and 2019, China took Mexico’s spot as the country sending the greatest number of foreign-born immigrants to the U.S. over the last decade. To put this in perspective, more Mexican nationals came to the U.S. than Chinese, Indians, and Canadians combined in 2006.

But in 2018, China began to send the most foreign-born immigrants to America — leap-frogging Canada, India, and Mexico.

Similarly, India has sent more foreign-born immigrants to the U.S. than Mexico since 2010. This pattern of legal immigration has changed the kinds of wage and job burdens in America. Traditionally, Mexican-based migration put pressure on blue-collar workers, but this new migration from Asia is putting more pressure on America’s white-collar workforce.

Annually, 1.2 million legal immigrants come to the U.S. Immigrants from China and India have already transformed certain sectors of the American economy. As of 2015, Chinese immigration in California has topped Mexican immigration to the state. In Silicon Valley, foreign-born nationals hailing from India outnumber Americans in the region’s tech sector.

Since the passage of the 1965 Immigration Act, immigration to America has fundamentally changed. Instead of traditionally European-based migrants coming in, Asians and Latin Americans make up the vast majority of migrants.

Subsequent immigration legislation such as then President George H.W. Bush’s Immigration Act of 1990, expanded legal immigration levels. From 2008 and 2018, the U.S. received more than 10 million legal immigrants. This number represents a foreign population larger than the population of New York City.

The majority of legal immigrants come through the process of “chain migration”, whereby recently naturalized citizens can take in an unlimited number of foreign relatives.

Immigration is a normal process of a country’s development, but it tends to happen in waves, with natural or legislative pauses.

The current mass migration wave is beginning to place major economic and political burdens on America.

To maintain its functionality as a nation, America will need to implement more restrictionist policies in the near future.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
