Selling us down the river

An important article on VDare. Randall Burns has put a price on American citizensship, enabling calculation of the costs of selling US citizensship by the political class to Third Worlders.

Dutchman Pieter Lakeman of Sobi Bedrijfsinformatie has made similar calculation of the cost of immigration for The Netherlands. He estimated that immigration cost the Dutch taxpayer 70 Billion guilders (roughly 32 million Euros or 38 million US Dollars), after substraction of gains, between 1960 and 1970.

The recent asylum seeker amnesty by the coalition will add another 800 million guiders, in the next 4 years. Family reunification or "chain immigration" will BALLOON the costs after that.

The costs of immigration are unevenly spread accross society. Employers and bureaucrats GAIN, while blue collar workers see there wages FALL, due to the increased labour supply. Supply and demand and all that jazz.
