Evidently, the Magic of Assimilation doesn’t work as well as promised in other contexts …
Instead of looking at this graph skeptically, we are suppose to swell up with patriotic pride that Joker Tsarnaev deigned to become a naturalized citizen. U-S-A! U-S-A!
By the way, I see that Tamerlan Tsarnaev (lower right corner) had a Green Card to permit him to get a job in the U.S. But did he ever have a job? Aspiring MMA fighter, weed dealer, and sponger off your American wife’s affluent family aren’t official jobs, are they?
One root of this mental blindness is that the establishment sees the Terrorism Issue and the Immigration Issue as wholly separate categories.
If there’s a terrorism incident, you should, of course, Invade the World; how could terrorism raise questions about Invite the World? What do Invade the World and Invite the World have to do with each other?
But voters are starting to grasp the connection. Thus the latest Reuters poll has Trump in first at 38.0% followed by the cunning Cruz, who has positioned himself to not get into much conflict with Trump over immigration, in second at 11.6%.
