The feud between London’s Muslim mayor and Trump is expanding exponentially. The central point of the argument is the benefits vs the detriments of immigration on the economy. But the bullets within the point are not being truthfully described and analyzed. First, Trump is NOT against ‘immigration’, he is against terrorism and against those countries that advocate terrorism. His choice as the US President is to ‘LIMIT’ some immigrants who desire to come into the US a) illegally, and b) with the intent of committing a terrorist act.
The argument takes on a perverse nature when the actual facts are distorted. Immigrants come from a wide variety of countries. They come legally, get jobs and pay taxes. Then we have illegal immigrants and we have potential terrorists who are also defined as ‘immigrants’.
We need to compare apples to apples instead of apples to wood.
In the UK, estimates peg the number of foreign born immigrants at about 13% of the population – actual numbers aren’t known because the government does not have a census. So it is a – guess.
BaddaBing! The US has about 13.5-14% immigrants! Sorry Khan…
In the UK, the increase in immigration between 2001 and 2015 has an interesting statistic. The largest increase has been from Poland. Interestingly, the Middle East does not represent a large, if any, increase in immigration whereas France, US, Pakistan, India and China have a significant increase. This would correspond with Mayor Khan’s statement that the UK is open to a wide variety of immigrants, but it does not address the real issue – again, terrorism.
Nor does it address –illegal immigration.
Nor does it address the cost benefit thereof.
Reviewing past articles from 2013 and 2014, the UK was embroiled in a host of charges that they were ‘neglecting’ to report the real immigration statistics by a large margin. These miscalculations came under the heading of – David Cameron. Of course this was all a very innocent mistake… to the tune of over 350,000 during the period 2001 to 2011.
The top sending countries into the US have consistently been; Mexico, India, China, Philippines, Cuba, and Dominican Republic. That means that placing a temporary ban on specific Middle Eastern Countries would be a very, very small figure. And hardly worth all the media attention. When the fact, the purpose, and the effect is all about the reduction of potential terrorism, and the elimination of illegal entry.
From an economic standpoint, in the UK it is ‘estimated’ that 53% of Muslim men and 76% of Muslim women don’t work. About 24% claim disability. So, the rhetoric pounded by mayor Khan claiming that immigrants are a benefit to society, it may be an actual correct statement, it just doesn’t address the core point – Islamic terrorists, and illegals? The argument again digresses into a war of propaganda, instead of a war of facts.
In addition, according to The Independent in the UK, Muslims claim to be subjected to the worst discrimination of any other minority… which makes Khans’s embracing statements rather false…
Statistic show that Muslim men were less likely to be employed than ‘white Christian British ‘ men… What a ridiculous claim. What were their qualifications? What was their experience? What was their knowledge of the language? What was their education? The absurdity of such baseless statistics is criminal.
Okay – the guy who speaks no English, has no education, has no experience, and hates all British citizens with a vengeance – has a less likely chance of getting the same job as a … fill in the blanks…
The report goes on to claim that they/Muslims are perceived as ‘disloyal and a threat’ – as in, I wonder why?
Of course, let us reiterate, these reports are based on the climate of immigration in the Mayor Khan’s – UK. Not the Trump’s US.
Research has the valuable import of pulling up historical information and integrating that into the political agenda so as to coordinate what is Truth. Unfortunately, many within our media, instead prefer to articulate a false statistic based on a pre-conceived end product.
Khan would be better informed to know the facts before spouting and pointing fingers, he only reveals his own ignorance. And Theresa May, she needs to stop being a politician and start being a human being, because as one of my followers has pointed out – she is looking more and more like – The Swamp.
Quick FYI: The illegal immigration population in the UK is estimated to be about .4%. The US illegal population is estimated to be about 3.5%. Apples to – wood…
