Will President Trump Disappoint White Nationalist Supporters on Immigration Policy? Part 1. Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
Update, November 16, 9:34 am:

White nationalist leader and former Harvard Summer School Asian language teacher Jared Taylor, whose detailed and painstaking analysis of presidential election popular vote loser Donald Trump's announced immigration policies from a white supremacist perspective is introduced below, and will be continued in more detail in Part 2 of this series, is reportedly very happy with Trump's appointment of Alt-Right Breitbart News Editor Stephen Bannon as Trump's chief strategist and senior adviser. The website mic.com quotes Taylor as follows:

"I hope that Stephen Bannon will help encourage President Trump to keep the promises the Candidate Trump made...the single greatest threat facing whites is mass immigration of non-whites into white homelands."

The same site also quotes Taylor as saying about Trump:

"To me, and in general to 'racial dissidents such as myself, it's his positions on immigration and naturalization and citizenship and taking a very hard look at whose coming into the country that are of interest to me..."

According to the same report, Taylor stated that he hopes Bannon will help set a White House agenda of not only deporting undocumented people en masse, but ending birthright citizenship and cutting even legal immigration "way back." See:

mic.com, in the same story, also reports that Bannon's appointment has been hailed by the American Nazi Party and the KKK.

In a November 13 article (before Bannon's appointment was announced), the prestigious and internationally respected German magazine Der Spiegel wrote the following about Trump's comments about immigrants and minorities during the campaign:

"Trump had no ideas, but he sensed that the [white] left-behinds yearn for strength. After Barack Obama's victories, the pundits said that no US election could be won without the Latino vote. But Trump gave the Latinos a big [unprintable words omitted], insinuating that the left-behinds are superior. His words were as crude as those spoken in Germany 80 years ago."

Update: November 15, 11:38 am

In an extremely dangerous and disturbing development for the future of immigration in America, Trump has appointed Brietbart News Editor Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist and adviser. The Hill describes Bannon's views as follows:

"The website [Breitbart News] supports nationalist movements wherever they arise...

Bannon admires right wing nationalists and hard line illegal immigration opponents in Europe and elsewhere...

'He definitely recognizes populist nationalists around the world.'...

The new Breitbart Paris website will campaign aggressively to help Le Pen get elected as the next president of France...

Critics have called out Breitbart's intense focus on crimes committed by blacks and people in the country illegally."

The fact that Trump has appointed someone with these views speaks volumes about what his own views may be on race relations in America, including immigration. Could America, in just four (or eight) years undo a half century of progress we have made as a nation toward racial justice and equality, both on immigration and on civil rights in general?

Could we be moving as a nation toward an Apartheid America?

My original post follows:

The following is a revised and expanded version, as of November 14 at 10:25 am, of my comments which were originally posted on the evening of November 13:

These comments are not concerned with whether anti-immigrant white nationalist organizations or leaders played any role in turning out enough white votes to give President-Elect Donald Trump his margin of victory in the electoral college (since he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by some 2 million votes).

Nor are they concerned with questions such as whether or not Trump may see himself as being under an obligation to reward these groups for helping him to win the election by adopting their anti-immigrant policies. I will leave those questions to the political pundits, who write on sites other than this one.

These comments will only examine the similarities and differences, if any, between Donald Trump's stated immigration policies and the immigration agenda of the white nationalist movement as announced by one of its own leaders.

I will also examine whether these leaders might or might not have reasons to be disappointed with Trump's actual immigration plans as announced after the election.

As an example of white nationalist policy objectives regarding immigration, I will refer to one avowedly white nationalist (though, according to Wikipedia, he calles himself a "white advocate" instead - see below) Trump supporter and who has articulated white nationalist immigration policy objectives with some precision and detail.

The figure I am referring to is Jared Taylor, editor of a now defunct magazine called American Renaissance. Taylor, according to his Wikipedia biography, is a confirmed believer in the inherent superiority of whites compared to black people (while also believing, again according to Wikipedia, that white people are less intelligent than East Asians). See:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jared_Taylo

Taylor was born in Japan to American missionary parents and grew up in Japan. In the United States, he has worked as a news editor at the Washington Post, (hardly a white nationalist outlet) and also taught Japanese to summer school students at Harvard University, not exactly known as a hotbed or center of white nationalist ideology.

Somewhere along the line, as described in the above Wikipedia extract, Taylor became a believer in white racial "uniqueness" if not actual superiority. His views about how immigration policy should have the goal of serving or promoting what he sees as the interests of the white race are set forth in his August 20, 2015 article in American Renaissance entitled: Is Trump Our Last Chance?

http://www.amren.com/features/2015/0...r-last-chance/

Taylor begins:

"Donald Trump may be the last hope for a president who would be good for white people.

Donald Trump's new position paper on immigration makes it official: He is easily the best presidential candidate on border security and immigration since Pat Buchanan. And we can be sure he is not a bait and switch politician who excites supporters with a few sensible ideas and then betrays them. Mr. Trump has single-handedly made immigration the key issue of this election. His heart is in it when he says that we need to build a wall, deport illegals, and have an immigration 'pause' until every American who wants a job gets one."

Then, in an explicit description of how he believes that immigration policy should serve what he sees as white interests, he states:

"But can he win? The white percentage of the electorate drops with every election. It was 74 percent in 2012 and is likely to be 72 per cent in 2016. Time is running out for white people, but a unique set of circumstances in 2016 may give them a real chance - perhaps their last best chance - to elect a president who would help them rather than hurt them."

And, further down in his article, Taylor has this to say:

"Actually looking at the pros and cons of immigrants could open the door to looking at the pros and cons of different groups of people. White, high I.Q. English-speaking people obviously assimilate best, and someone in a Trump administration might actually say so."

And he concludes:

"There will never be another campaign like this one. If Mr. Trump loses, this could be the last chance whites have to vote for a president who could actually do something useful for them and their country."

What are the specific immigration policies that Jared Taylor seems to believe would be appropriate to serve what he sees as white interests?

As his article makes clear, they are virtually identical to Trump's own stated immigration policies as they were formulated at that time, almost 18 months ago, at the beginning of his campaign, and were not substantially changed (except for the addition of the now apparently abandoned worldwide Muslim ban) right up through the election itself.

I will go through Taylor's list and discuss his comments about Trump's specific proposals to see how, in Taylor's view, each one supports his white nationalist agenda, in Part 2 of these comments.

In Part 2, I will also examine Trump's post election announcements concerning his possible modifications in these plans to see if Taylor and his fellow white nationalists might have reasons to be disappointed in any of Trump's latest immigration policy proposals, such as, for example, his plan to round up and deport "only" up to 3 million "criminal illegal aliens".

In contrast, I will also look at some of Trump's other recent immigration policy proposals, such as "extreme vetting" of all visa applicants, to see if they might be a white nationalist's dream come true (and a nightmare for immigrants and all Americans who support our democratic principles of equal opportunity for all without regard to race, color or religion).

    Roger, I go not get it. What does it have to do with immigration? What do you think about president elect Trump's decision to kick out criminal illegal aliens out of this country? Do you agree with this or not? Inquiring minds want to know.

    By the way, Roger. Do you remember how I was saying that stuffing fake mozlem "refugees" down the throat of unwilling American taxpayers will get DJT elected? Boy, I was so right I wonder if Obama's administration is having second thoughts about this now Too late anyways...

    Canada to lift visa requirements for Mexico
    Ottawa, Ontario
    June 28, 2016
    "The Government of Canada has made it a top priority to re-establish and strengthen our relationship with one of our most important partners, Mexico. To this end, Prime Minister Trudeau today announced Canada?s intention to lift the visa requirement for Mexican visitors to Canada beginning December 1, 2016. Lifting the visa requirement will deepen ties between Canada and Mexico and will increase the flow of travellers, ideas, and businesses between both countries..."
    http://www.pm.gc.ca/eng/news/2016/06/28/canada-lift-visa-requirements-mexico

    A massive influx of Mexican nationals toward the northern border may start taking place after the Thanksgiving celebrations (and not south as many tend to believe)...this means undocumented Mexicans living in the US can right now easily obtain a passport at their closest consulate and quietly (and quickly too) be able to settle temporarily in Canada until the Trump administration starts to realize that the determination process for undocumented aliens who lack of criminal record has to be on their priority list.

    Too bad for key sectors of the American economy where the migrant workforce is irreplaceable (i.e. agriculture, farming, hospitality, janitorial, landscaping). The irony of this matter is that Mexican people may soon become the dominant minority in Canada by changing the demographics of that country too!

    America cannot survive without the migrant labor...meaning more Mexicans (millions of them) will be able to migrate to the US legally after the ongoing ordeal is "under control."

    Problem, reaction, solution...this was a plan surely discussed between Pena Nieto and Trudeau earlier this year (and debriefed to Trump during his last trip to Mexico).

    Asylum applications to Canada by US citizens are certainly overwhelming the immigration authorities of that country due to Trump's election...Pandora's box has been opened!
