Slamming the Gates Shut By Cherry Knight

     One of the very good things to come from this coronavirus crisis has been that people have got a taste of what immigration restriction is like, and it is like a breeze of fresh air, clean as the city air at evening, without so many cars:

“Almost 8-in-10 Americans want immigration to the United States paused during the Chinese coronavirus crisis as unemployment reaches record levels, a new poll reveals. A newly released Ipsos poll finds Americans are almost totally unified in their support for pausing immigration in the midst of the coronavirus crisis and mass unemployment. Overall, about 79 percent of American adults said they want immigration temporarily paused to the U.S. — a policy far beyond just the travel bans that have been implemented on Chinese, Iranian, and European travel to the country by President Trump’s administration. Support for an immigration moratorium has increased in recent weeks. In early March, when Americans were asked about their support for pausing immigration from high-risk countries, about 76 percent said they supported a pause. Similarly, 70 percent of Americans said they support grounding all international flights to the U.S. to stop foreign travel into the country while the coronavirus continues taking its toll on major cities like New York City, New York; Detroit, Michigan; and New Orleans, Louisiana. In early March, just 39 percent of Americans said they supported grounding all international flights — indicating a 31 percent increase in support for grounding all international flights to the U.S. over the course of four weeks. As Breitbart News chronicled, pauses on immigration are not unprecedented. To the contrary, the U.S. has historically cut all immigration in times of crisis and mass unemployment.”

     Maybe if there is not going to be the old “normal” then there should not be a return to the Great Replacement immigration as well.  That might take away a bit of the pain of losing every other freedom.
