In Europe, immigration from the Middle East and Africa is a form of colonization. It was instituted by the ruling elites in order to appease the Arab countries that keep the continent in an oil stranglehold, and the ultimate goal was (and is) the creation of Eurabia, a hybrid of Europe and the Arab countries which will be dominated by Islam.
But here in America the rationale for immigration is different. The end result may be the same — the destruction of a traditional culture and people in order to serve the ends of vast transnational organizations — but the motive is different. In the United States, immigration is a big business.
The immigrants — mostly Mexicans — arrive in the country and go to work for agribusinesses, landscapers, construction companies, and other corporations. Whether legal or illegal, they underbid the wages of American natives and boost the bottom line for their employers.
At the same time they are hustled into citizenship as fast as possible by the urban political machines so that they can become reliable Democrat voters. They suck up a disproportionate amount of social services in the meantime, but that’s a big business, too, employing battalions of bureaucrats and social workers to manage their cases.
The Republicans like cheap labor, and the Democrats like reliable machine voters. That’s what makes immigration such a gloriously bipartisan project, even when two-thirds of Americans think there’s way too much of it.
And there’s another part of the immigration life-cycle that’s big business: when the time comes to throw them out. Massive illegal immigration has left us with millions of people inside our borders who have no right to be here. When politicians decide to get tough on immigration — usually in the months just before a presidential election — a means of collecting, processing, and deporting the illegals has to be constructed. And at each stage of the process there’s money to be made, both in the private and public sectors.
This was brought home to me recently by local events here in Virginia. Farmville is a town of about 7,000 people in Southside Virginia, and from time to time I pick up a copy of the Farmville Herald to see what’s going on. Yesterday I read the following article in the paper, and then scanned it from the print copy, because it doesn’t seem to be available on the Herald’s website:
Immigration Detention Facility Has a Mission
FARMVILLE — Town Manager Gerald Spates stressed “humane treatment” as the goal of an immigration detention center that he said could eventually house up to 2,500 detainees.
Briefing Town Council Wednesday night, Spates said the facility is expected to begin with approximately 1,000 detainees.
Located near the Town’s water treatment plant, the facility could open in the spring.
Immigration Centers of America-Farmville has begun advertising the first of what will initially be approximately 199 full-time jobs — these to provide the transportation of detainees.
The bulk of the jobs have not yet been advertised.
The facility will be privately operated by ICA-Farmville but Spates explained that the Town is “more or less the contractor with the federal government.”

The Town received a contract with the federal government last Thursday and signed it Tuesday. The returned contract, inked by the federal government, should be received within the next 10 to 15 days, Spates said.
“Once we get the contract back from the federal government — signed — we’ll have the per diem rate they will pay the Immigration Centers of America to house the detainees. Once that returns back,” Spates said, “we’ll start construction on the building.”
A public presentation to Town Council and local residents will be scheduled once the signed contract is received so “they can see the design of the facility and how this facility is going to be built and managed,” the town manager noted.
Regarding the treatment of detainees, Spates said, “This will be a state of the art facility that will be for the humane treatment of detainees. They’re not charged with any crime other than they’re picked up because they don’t have proper documentation.”
Detainees are currently sometimes housed in jails, Spates said, because there aren’t enough immigration detention facilities.
“There’s no detainee centers around here so they (can) end up in a regular jail,” Spates said, [the immigrants] having committed no crime other than being in the United States without proper documentation.
A state of the art facility for the “humane treatment” of detainees was, Spates repeated, the operational goal of the project in Farmville.
(There are approximately 308 immigration detainees currently being held in a facility operated by Piedmont Regional Jail.)
It is estimated that the detainees will stay at the ICA-Farmville facility for between two weeks and three months, the longer period of time if they seek to remain in the U.S., according to council member and Piedmont Regional Jail Major Donald L. Hunter, and the shorter stay if there is voluntary departure.
In addition to the estimated 199 full-time jobs filled locally, Spates said approximately 100 federal employees “will probably relocate” and work at the facility.
Regarding potential long-term employee and detainee totals, the town manager said, “the plan is to get this facility on line with 1,000 detainees and then eventually work up to a higher number, say 2,500.”
Because ICA-Farmville is going to “employ at a ratio of one to five, one employee for every five detainees, it’s going to bring a lot of jobs, and good-paying jobs too.”
That could potentially create total employment of 500 people, based on the information presented by Spates to Town Council.
So now we can see how the entire system works.
To begin with we have the treasonous behavior of our elected officials, who through gross negligence and dereliction of duty fail to enforce the borders of our country, no matter how many laws the Congress passes that require them to do so.
Next we have businesses which profit from the labor of the immigrants, legal or otherwise, and the vast apparatus of bureaucrats and administrators who build their careers on providing education, health care, legal aid, and other support services for indigent foreigners.
The descendents of the newcomers might — just might — become productive citizens, but the first generation of arrivals, along with all the relatives who get pulled in under the family reunification provisions, will be a greater drain on the public treasury than they make up for by paying taxes.
Finally, when public pressure forces the government to get tough on the illegals, they have to be found, rounded up, fed, clothed, housed, given a court-appointed attorney, and shepherded through due process until they are shipped home.
On their way across the border they can watch they new arrivals crossing the desert and negotiating the barbed wire on their way into the country.
At every step of the process somebody is making money. That’s why the cycle continues unabated, despite the firm opinion of voters about the matter. And the American taxpayer is footing the bill.
The people of Farmville can be proud that they play a part in returning illegal aliens to their countries of origin. But we would all be better off if our leaders did their duty in the first place, even if it meant that 500 people in the Farmville area would have to look elsewhere for jobs.
