Here's a Tweet from Asian-American economics professor Daniel Lin, who thinks the US is unfair to Chinese: He's linking to a David Brooks column (of course) called Talent Loves English, NYT, May 26, 2015. First of all, the population of China is 1.3 billion. There are a lot more than 22 million people who might move to the US. Steve Sailer has written that there are five billion people whose per capita income is lower than that of Mexico, and that includes everyone in China. In 2005, Sailer wrote

While China is booming, its GDP per capita is still less than two-thirds of Mexico. And more than half of China's 1.3 billion people live in abject poverty outside of the industrial zones along the coast

And even the talented ones only displace a better class of American. Here's more from Lin [Email him] on immigration, which suggests that he's assimilated to America's culture of crazy libertarian economists:

Well, actually, at VDARE.com, we disapprove of giving citizenship to people just because they're born in America. See Weigh Anchor! Enforce the Citizenship Clause and the rest of our writing on so-called "birthright citizenship."

Particularly, we object to the practice of well-to-do Chinese women of engaging in "birth tourism"—where they come to America while pregnant to get American citizenship for their unborn children, and give birth while their "uterus" is in the  United States. See Steve Sailer's Birthright Citizenship, Anarcho-Tyranny, And Beverly Hills Nativism.   Those kids shouldn't have citizenship either.
