For the past two years, Texas has been flooded with illegal aliens. And since the Biden administration’s top immigration policy goal is to completely eliminate the border with Mexico, the Lone Star State has been unable to seek any help from the federal government.
Therefore, the Texas Legislature recently passed a bill that would allow local law enforcement officers to arrest aliens who enter the United States illegally.
The ink on the new law was barely dry when the mainstream media started screaming “Racism!” “Texas lawmakers pass tough immigration bill condemned as racist,” according to a headline featured in the British news outlet The Guardian. According to Spectrum News, the American Civil Liberties Union plans to file a lawsuit claiming the new bill “incites racial profiling and harassment.”
Accusations of racism are not new in the immigration field. Anti-border advocates want the public to believe that U.S. immigration policies favor white Europeans and discriminate against so-called “black and brown people.” However, this is an inherently stupid claim and nothing could be further from the truth.

First of all, immigrants are not a race. They come from every corner of the globe and come from every racial, ethnic, and religious background on the planet. The immigrant group may include Irish, African, and Asian people, but no one shares a common racial background. Therefore, it is impossible to be racist against immigrants without hating humanity as a whole.
Additionally, the majority of people who immigrated to the United States over the past 40 years were neither white nor of European origin. According to Pew Research, Asians (28%), Mexicans (25%), and other Latin Americans (25%) each make up about a quarter of the U.S. immigrant population, followed by those born in another region. People accounted for 9%.
These statistics paint little picture of American immigration policies aimed at promoting the perpetuation of a predominantly white, Western European-led America.
And while the immigrant population heading to the U.S.-Mexico border is changing, it is not beginning to mirror the demographics of Andy Griffith’s Mayberry RFD. In fact, according to the National Institute on Immigration, citizens of 103 countries pass through Mexico on their way to Mexico. US.
They included four Swiss, 39 Kyrgyzstans, 345 Afghans, 738 Chinese, one Singaporean, and countless Africans and regular Latin Americans. Meanwhile, the number of Indians trying to sneak into the US from Mexico has increased by a staggering 500%.
With so much data, why does the argument that all immigration restrictions are racist persist?

America has lost control of its borders. Those who profit from unchecked mass immigration want to distract from any honest discussion of its negative effects. They don’t want responsible, knowledgeable people discussing the link between porous borders and rising crime, unemployment, housing shortages, and more.
So anti-border advocates would rather take the coward’s route and avoid considering the real issues at stake by claiming that all immigration policies they dislike are “racist.” resorting to deliberate attempts to thwart. After all, accusations of racism are the quickest way to end meaningful debate in American politics today.
Simply put, there is nothing in Texas’ new law to indicate that the state wants the Swiss but not the Chinese and Afghans. The immigration issue in Texas is not a race issue, it’s a nationality issue.
Citizens of other countries have no right to enter the United States without permission from the U.S. government. Congress has placed strict limits on who is and is not allowed to enter the United States. And the Biden administration has chosen to ignore these restrictions without asking Congress to change the statutes that create them.

Ultimately, Team Biden’s refusal to comply with the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) will endanger America’s sovereignty, public safety, and national security. Texas’ concern is not to exclude immigrants of any particular race. It’s not about excluding immigrants of a particular race.that Any Immigrants admitted to the United States are admitted in accordance with the INA after appropriate vetting and screening.
Texas is merely adopting the principles of constitutional federalism to assume important safety and security functions that the federal government has deliberately abandoned. And we do so to protect all Texans, regardless of race, color, or creed. After all, nothing could be more racist.
