Immigration is Selfish

To talk sense about immigration, we must start with the axiom that all immigration is selfish. No one moves from a good land to a wretched one voluntarily. However personally traumatic it may be, an immigrant chooses to move to better himself.

Diversity? Were Canadians Ever Consulted?

Doubters are invited to check out the Haitian, North Korean or Burmese -- I guess it's now the Myamar -- embassies. There are no lineups of would-be immigrants outside their doors. Why? The reader is likely chuckling at the obvious answer: No one in his right mind would wish to migrate to those wretched lands.

Exactly. The pro-immigration propaganda in Canada is that immigration, especially diversity, "enriches" us. If it does in the odd case, it is entirely by accident. Immigrants do not seek a new land to "enrich" the inhabitants but to enrich and better themselves.

Knowing this, then, a prudent country will seek to carefully screen and regulate immigrants to ensure that they can and do contribute, that they will not be a burden and that they do not bring criminal ways or disruptive social or moral practices with them.

Integrating into Canadian Society?

Finally, North Americans, especially Canadians, have been fed a poisonous gruel of guilt by the self-interested immigration lobby. We have been haranged that to oppose immigration is some form of smug superiority or, that term that reduces even sturdy men to cringing wimps, "white supremacy." How, it is demanded, can you dare impose your standards or your cultures on newcomers? That is a clear sign of white supremacy.

The very act of immigration settled the question of superiority. As it's axiomatic that no one leaves a better place for a worse, the immigrant himself has acknowledged the superiority of the land to which he has immigrated. By coming to Canada or the U.S., the immigrant has admitted in a most dramatic way, that these lands are better than the one he's left. The reason these lands are better is the culture. Canada and the U.S. are based on a Christian culture of caring for one's neighbour. Both share a legal culture of respect for the rule of law and a system that strives for impartial and fair justice. Both have a political system rooted in Britain that emphasizes the consent of the governed and representation of the governed. It is this political and moral culture that make these lands the desirable havens they are for immigrants, so desireable that many will lie or bribe flesh-smuggling "snakeheads" to take them there.

Wasn't Fluency in English or French Supposed to Be A Requirement for Immigrants?
Banks cater to Newcomers & Slap Hefty Fees on Canadians.

Effete academics may debate the merits of one culture over another. Immigrants by the act of flocking to North America have provided a resounding rebuke to cultural relativism. They have acknowledged the overwhelming superiority of the lands to which they have come.

This is of course only partly true. Often people immigrate to find a home that is more compatible with their own values: to USA for money, to Mexico for conviviality, to Canada for good government.

Wow, I am an Born and raised American wanting to migrate to Canida. I am tired of the fact that America has 'Sold Out'. I agree that we opened our door with the goodness of our haerts and this will be our undoing. It should have never been a weakness. Americ's Justice system is a joke, Our politician have sold us down the river. You Candians would be real smart to build that fence and try to Keep this Cancer out

Wow, so immigrants are selfish and a cancer to society?

And yet migration towards countries with white-dominated governments PROVES that these countries are superior - sorry, the CULTURES of these countries are superior.

That's not racism, that's just common sense, hey?

This article's argument is totally ridiculous.

People migrate as a way to flee war, to search for safety, stability and opportunities for their families. They migrate internally and internationally. Call it selfish if you want - it's about as selfish as eating breakfast.

Just because the countries or the places people migrate to happen to have cultures different from the cultures in their places of origin is NOT proof that anyone is superior;

First of all, let's not forget Canada and the U.S.'s role in making life in Haiti, North Korea, or Burma intolerable, currently and historically.

As far as the principles of "good neighbourliness" go, they are certainly not unique to white cultures - they're just the only cultures that have the gaul to preach those principles on the one hand, while on the other commiting genocide against indigenous people, funding massacres in Latin America, profiting off wars in the Middle East, deporting people to torture, justifying slavery, etc.
