EDITORIAL:  An Immigration Question Nobody’s Asking?


We’re repeatedly told that the U.S. southern border is overwhelmed by record-setting numbers of illegal aliens migrating en masse, though we’re given few useful numbers. We hear of succeeding caravans from Central America. All this requires a lot of money and organization to create and maintain; we’ve wondered before whom are its authors. We’ve wondered too why no one seems ready to tell us those things. That seems a bit odd to us. Now, we have a new wonder:

These arriving masses are, never mind the obfuscating terminology of the propagandists, in plain fact, aliens illegally violating U.S. borders. Therefore, aiding and abetting them is a U.S. crime in itself. So why is  boss U.S. lawman Prez Trump, the most vocal opponent of all this, allowing this massive, organized activity to continue unscathed? We’re told that it is headquartered at a Chicago church. If true, said church has wealth and management skills and staff reaching unlikely magnitudes. The media seem curiously incurious.

Perhaps mass migration is just current political theater, serving various political needs and also serving to distract us from the progressing impoverishment of the U.S. middle class to which it contributes?
