Gursewak Singh composed his first letter to Japan’s justice minister when he was 10 years old. Almost seven years later, he is still writing. In all, he has written more than 50 letters...
Gursewak’s parents, who are Sikhs, fled to Japan from India in the 1990s. For several years, they lived without visas under the radar until they were put on a status known as “provisional release” in 2001. It means they can stay in Japan as long as their asylum application is under review.
Gursewak, who has never left Japan, has inherited his parents’ provisional release status and all the restrictions that go with it. That fate has exposed him and more than 500 other children who share his predicament to lives of perpetual uncertainty.
[Japan Leaves Unapproved Asylum Seekers And Kids Born In-Country With Dire Choices, By Minami Funakoshi, Ami Miyazaki And Thomas Wilson, The Japan Times/Reuters, November 24, 2016]The reporters lament that Japanese appear to be standing firm against diversity:
Chiba’s is a rare voice of dissent. Across the Japanese political spectrum, there is broad support for keeping immigration barriers high. Last year, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the solution to Japan’s demographic problems was getting more women and the elderly into the workforce, not loosening the nation’s immigration laws.There good reasons for that. The Singh family has been in Japan for 20 years, yet neither Singh pere or Singh mere have bothered to learn Japanese, but demand that the Japanese surrender their sovereignty and culture to them, uninvited invaders:
The first part of the meeting followed the pattern of previous engagements, Bharpoor said. Speaking through a Punjabi interpreter, an immigration official quizzed the Singhs about their lives, in particular how they made a living.The Singhs are much more concerned about remaining Indian in Japan than acculturating:
“I said that we couldn’t leave our children, because they were still small,” Bharpoor recalled. “And they have religious needs such as a vegetarian diet and wearing turbans...
A television beams Sikh prayers live from the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the bastion of the Sikh religion in northern India...
On a recent Sunday in September, Bharpoor, a religious leader in the local Sikh community, led prayers at a temple in Tokyo. Gursewak played tabla — traditional drums used in the ceremonies — as his mother and sister sang prayers. Later, they dished out steaming plates of “daal” (lentils) and “chapatis” (flatbread) to the 60-strong congregation.The Singhs are very demanding of Japan and the Japanese, but want to create a little India in Japan rather than make any effort to become Japanese. And that is not acceptable to the Japanese.
Wisely, Japanese nationality law does not provide for birthright citizenship—mere birth does not make a person born in Japan a Japanese citizen, unless the parents are Japanese. It's especially wise because it prohibits illegal aliens from anchoring themselves in Japan by giving birth.
And wise because even the Japanese speaking Gursewak Singh doesn't want to become Japanese, he wants to remain an Indian.
Gursewak Singh, Not Japanese In Any SenseAnd it applies to all illegal aliens, not just those who are racially and outwardly not Japanese:
A Thai teenager born and raised in Japan lost an appeal on Tuesday against a lower court ruling that upheld his deportation order, highlighting the country’s deep reluctance to accept non-Japanese people, even as its population ages and shrinks.
The Tokyo High Court ruled that Utinan Won, a 16-year-old high school student living without a visa, should leave Japan. Won’s mother had already left Japan after lower court judges said her son could win residency if she returned to Thailand.

Unlike Gursewak Singh, Utinan Won can outwardly pass for Japanese, something multi generations of Korean immigrants do, but still remain in the eyes of the Japanese, Korean. And Won is Thai, as his name shows, not Japanese. He cannot become Japanese in the eyes of the Japanese people.
Utinan Won, To An Outsider He Looks Japanese, But The Japanese Know BetterAnd so concerned are the Japanese about their nation, even Japan's courts support the continued existence of Japan and the Japanese:
The High Court judges said in a written ruling: “We must say that the (lower court’s) decision and the deportation order are legally legitimate.”
Although Won does not read or write Thai, he is able to speak the language and is young enough to adapt to life back in Thailand, the judges said.Japan prides itself on being a consensus society. All behavior and actions from childhood on up are judged by others as to how that behavior contributes to outstanding mores and shared values. Diversity does not contribute to a peaceful, safe, and harmonious Japan. In Japan, judges are not enemies of the nation and support the political and social harmony that is both traditional and modern Japan, unlike this nation.There are no kritarchs in Japan interfering with the immigration laws, seeking to upend the racial harmony in Japan and destroy the nation from within. Better yet, there are precious few CultMarx activists supporting illegal aliens.This is the lesson for President-Elect Donald J. Trump and Attorney General-Designate Jefferson Beauregard Sessions. The judiciary must be brought into line to properly administer immigration laws and protect the nation. And birthright citizenship and immigration must end as it is the font from which conflict emerges in any society. Japan's social and political harmony are a lesson to be learned, diversity kills not only individuals, but whole societies. And if you hold the line on the baby waving, you can will the battle for a safer America. There is a reason there is no Muslim terrorism or rampant crime in Japan; social harmony through consensus and racial unity.
