When Donald Trump in a fit of politically incorrectness claims that immigrants from Mexico contain many criminals, among which rapists, he is branded a racist.
Yet here is the Huffington Post, a left-wing publication, basically confirming that rape of women from Central America that want to reach the United States through Mexico is a big problem.
Obviously, this big problem must then be a Mexican problem. This does not mean it is a problem that does not, or could not exist in other countries. But what it does mean is that there is such a big problem in Mexico, and that therefore Mexican people are not exempt from the facts just because they are considered a minority when they migrate.
It is true that many immigrants are good people looking for a better life (whether they go about it in the right way is another matter); but it is also true that – logically, especially when it comes to illegal immigrants – a percentage of those immigrants must be criminals. And i don’t mean criminals in the sense of being illegals, but in the sense of engaging in crimes of aggression such as invasions of private property; theft; assault, murder and/or rape.
From the point of view of someone who believes that illegal immigration is a bad thing in itself, is it really so outrageous that criminal elements being among illegal immigrants is just another good reason to be opposed to them entering the United States? Not only is this not outrageous; it would be downright stupid to think that opponents of illegal immigration have no specific reasons for opposing it. And if there is to be a good reason at all, the addition of migrant criminals to an already existing pool of domestic criminals certainly is one. The politicians that try to avoid naming the specific reasons for their opposition to illegal immigration are merely being politically correct hypocrites, trying to cater to potential Hispanic voters as well as to those who oppose illegal immigration.
The comments of Trump may be politically incorrect; they are also in a way a fact and a logical conclusion.
And the politically correct do not like facts. Facts disturb the peaceful, tolerant and ideal dreamworld.
