Immigration to United States from countries with values antithetical to those of the West is surging at an alarming rate, new analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies shows.
A comparison of the immigrant population in the U.S. that exploded between 2010 and 2015, and the cultural values of their home countries as indicated by the World Values Survey, paints a worrying picture of the future of American cultural and social cohesion.
Between 2010 and 2015, the Nigerian immigrant population grew by 48 percent. The United States saw both its Egyptian and Iraqi-born populations grow by 35 percent, while immigration from India grew by 34 percent. Immigration from Pakistan increased by 27 percent in that time period.
According to the World Values Survey, 84 percent of Egyptians believe men should be given work over women, regardless of qualifications, when jobs are scarce — 74 percent of Pakistanis, 66 percent of Nigerians, and 65 percent of Iraqis agree with them.
In India, 73 percent believes it is sometimes acceptable to beat one’s wife, an opinion they apparently share with 65 percent of Iraqis, 61 percent of Egyptians, and 53 percent of Nigerians, according to the survey.
Seventy-three percent of Iraqis and nearly 50 percent of Indians and Pakistanis said they would not want to live next to an unmarried couple, while 80 percent of Iraqis, 71 percent of Nigerians, and 59 percent of Pakistanis said they would not want to live next to a homosexual.
And as much as progressives are wont to criticize conservatives for being wary of mass Islamic immigration, it turns out that clear majorities from Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria, and Pakistan said they do not trust people from other religions. Eighty-four percent of Egyptians, 75 percent of Pakistanis, and 73 percent of Iraqis wouldn’t even trust someone from a different nationality the survey suggests.
Compared to their constant criticisms of conservatives, American progressives’ refusal to even acknowledge, let alone consider, cultural incompatibilities is shockingly hypocritical.
