Much mock outrage is being generated over observations that President Trump purportedly made yesterday complaining why the US had so many illegal aliens from s—hole nations rather than immigrants from nations like Norway. (Trump had met with the Prime Minister of Norway on Wednesday.)
President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to several people briefed on the meeting.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.
Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday. The president, according to a White House official, also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt they help the United States economically.
In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said.
“Why do we need more Haitians?” Trump said, according to people familiar with the meeting. “Take them out.”

His observations, assuming that he is being reported accurately, are being called terrible, racist and everything under the sun except what they are: completely correct. Since 1965 the US has in fact given preference to immigrants from Third World nations rather than from First World nations and our illegal alien problem is overwhelmingly from troubled Third World nations. Was Trump wrong to disparage these countries? Well it certainly wasn’t diplomatic, but it also certainly was true. People from those countries flock to ours because they view the conditions in their home nations as being bad, often appallingly so. The shills for illegal aliens in this nation continually wax eloquent over how bad the conditions are in those nations as the main reason why the hordes of illegal aliens we have in this nation cannot be sent back. The whole DACA charade is based on how terrible it would be to send those illegal aliens back to, shudder, mainly Mexico.
None of this is surprising however. When it comes to our illegal alien problem mendacity has ever been king. Illegal aliens serve two powerful constituencies: many businesses which want to import cheap labor, and the Democrat Party which wants to replace the native populations in many areas in our land with new populations which will vote reliably Democrat for a generation or three. Since the flaunting of our immigration laws is unpopular with most Americans, the policy of amnestying these illegal aliens every generation or so has to be shielded with lies. Trump, crude as he is, broke with this policy of lies, and the mainstream media, and the political establishments, are in a tizzy. Good.
