Amnesty will Lead to More Affirmative Action

Racial preferences and reverse discrimination will worsen if amnesty passes. This is entirely predictable, and it requires no foresight to understand that people who benefit from the regime of reverse discrimination will gladly promote that regime with their votes. The only way to slow down the victim lobby is to stop amnesty, and enhance enforcement immediately.

Of all the consequences that would result from amnesty, one that hasn’t been discussed enough is the expansion of affirmative action.

Affirmative action takes existing racial grievances, institutionalizes them, and then magnifies them. As Shelby Steele noted, affirmative action encourages “a victim-focused identity in minorities” and fosters “a parasitic diversity industry”.

Affirmative action policies will benefit minority immigrants, and minority immigrants will naturally support affirmative action policies. How do we know? Because Hispanics are telling pollsters so.

Sixty-five percent of Hispanics believe that affirmative action should be used to ensure that more Hispanics get to college or university, and 68% support affirmative action in employment, according to a 2011 Angus Reid opinion poll. A 2012 Georgetown University poll showed that 63% of young Hispanics (18-24) support affirmative action to “redress past discrimination,” along with 75% of young blacks, but only 19% of whites.
