  • Oct 7 - The Politics of Mary Poppins

    Comment: The Politics of Mary Poppins
    The current immigration discussion is laden with political and emotional overtones. In such debates, the first casualty is often the truth. A popular myth implicit in most discussions is the assumption that the majority of new immigrants originate from Latin America. In fact, that was the case until the mid-2000s, but since then there has been a significant change in the demographic composition of new immigrants. According to an article in http://fivethirtyeight.com

    ... Asia has surpassed Latin America as the dominant source of new immigrants to the U.S. Asia accounted for 45 percent of all new immigrants in 2012, compared to 34 percent for Latin America.
    Some of the reasons behind the decline in Latin American immigration are the decline in birthrate and improved economic conditions in Mexico. Consequently - there is also a decline in undocumented immigration.
    ... the number of new undocumented workers entering the country each year - has fallen close to zero. On a net basis - people entering minus those leaving or being deported - [undocumented] immigration was probably negative between 2007 and 2012.

    We believe these figures shed a new light on the debate on immigration reform. In the movie Mary Poppins (1964), George Banks says: Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with facts. But in reality we should not let politicians get away with falsehoods. Share your thoughts by writing to editor@ilw.com.
