Why Should Immigrants ‘Respect Our Borders’? The West Never Respected Theirs
Immigration quotas should be based on how much the host country has ruined other countries.

By Suketu Mehta
Mr. Mehta is the author of “This Land Is Our Land: An Immigrant’s Manifesto.”

There is a lot of debate these days about whether the United States owes its African-American citizens reparations for slavery. It does. But there is a far bigger bill that the United States and Europe have run up: what they owe to other countries for their colonial adventures, for the wars they imposed on them, for the inequality they have built into the world order, for the excess carbon they have dumped into the atmosphere.

And surprise, a South Asian who doesn't realize the USA is not F'ing Britain or France. Or that Brits never even approached 1% of the Indian population, even counting temporary residents like sailors,soldiers, etc.

"This Land is Our Land --- it's reparations --- but We're not trying to replace you Paranoid."

More Leftist Gaslighting.

Most white Americans do not have ancestors that were in the US during the Civil War, let alone prior to.

Now if the reparations are due to the federal gov action in regards to President Johnson and the Democrats Great Society programs, then I get the argument, though I think the Democrats should be held individually responsible for that atrocity, creating multi generational white and black life cripples.

Before I pay reparations, I would like to have to at least have had some of the benefits of slavery. Abandon the Thirteenth Amendment for ten years before reparations!
