Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk has had his record of mass migration boosting placed under the microscope ever since America First advocates rose up against Conservatism Inc. late in 2019.
Now, a Twitter user with the handle of @ChiefTrumpster is exposing more of Kirk’s mass migration fanaticism in a podcast episode he did on his own show on August 14, 2019. (For reference, at 57:23 is when Kirk starts talking about immigration.)
In this talk, he specifically shamed the country of Japan for its restrictive immigration policies.
Kirk criticized Japan for only accepting 26 refugees in 2016. He also criticized the Land of the Rising Sun for accepting 3 refugees in the first half of 2017. He signaled that he doesn’t support “this strict of refugee resettlement.”
The leader of TPUSA called attention to the fact that only two percent of Japan’s population is foreign born. In the Conservatism Inc. gatekeeper’s view, “This actually is an example of a really, really bad immigration policy.”
Kirk also mentioned that Japan has one of the worst debt to GDP ratios in the entire world. He argues that “an upstart entrepreneurial focused immigrant community could have really helped Japan.” He gushed over how America does more refugee resettlement than the rest of the world. Specifically, how the U.S. takes in “60% of the world’s refugees.”

The Japan question is interesting.
Unlike most of Europe, North America, New Zealand, and Australia, Japan and its East Asian industrialized counterparts have not bought into the mass migration hype.
Despite this, Japan is still one of the biggest economic juggernauts in the world and is leading the way in certain fields such as robotics.
Indeed, the country does have economic problems thanks to the wacky Keynesian economic policies its elites have adopted since American forces occupied the country after it got blown to pieces during World War II. Since then, the country has undermined itself by adopting big spending programs and loose monetary policies — which are in fashion with degenerate, globalist elites in the West.
Japan has imported some of these harebrained schemes.
Nevertheless, its culture has remained very strong and has rejected the post-1960s Western consensus of mass migration. Japan has historically been known for its high trust society which stresses discipline and austerity both in economic and social matters.
It’s no shock why the country enjoys having flagship companies like Toyota and Sony, while having some of the lowest crime rates in the world. You never hear about racial conflicts or massive crime waves taking place in Japan. That is what happens when a country works to preserve its culture while adopting the best practices that made the West dominant.
More fundamental, countries can recover from economic downturns and reassert themselves on the international stage. Similarly, low birthrates are a cyclical development that eventually correct themselves over time after policy tweaks made and cultural norms change.
However, a demographic displacement caused via mass migration could fundamentally alter a nation and possibly upend the culture if the host population is not willing to assert its interests in the face of these migratory waves. Once this occurs, the historic nation in question disappears into the ether. If Japan were to fall for the Siren Song of mass migration, historians will be talking about the “Lost Tribes of Japan” centuries from now. The West could be facing this kind of scenario if it doesn’t implement immigration restriction within the next few decades.
In sum, Kirk has a transactional view of the nation state, which doesn’t take into account how certain migrant groups exercise in-group preferences and come from countries that hold political traditions that clash with their new country of residence. These habits don’t just go away overnight, above all, when continuous waves of migration encourage the creation of ethnic ghettos that end up looking like these migrants’ countries of origin.
Countries simply cannot operate like shopping malls.
And Charlie Kirk would be wise to recognize that.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis
After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”
Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus”
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”
Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.
In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.
With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.
Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.
A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.
This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.
Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
