Assimilating immigrants – even those coming from developed nations – is never easy. But there is clear evidence that the process is crumbling under the weight of mass immigration from nations with low levels of education and cultures drastically different from that of the West. Assimilation is further hampered by external interests, such as the Saudis that spend millions of dollars annually to spread a totalitarian form of Islam among disaffected members of the refugee community here in the U.S.
The past several years have demonstrated that Western refugee policies, intended to protect the innocent, can also harm citizens of host countries. Western democracies have traditionally sheltered those fleeing persecution. But this good will has occasionally been repaid with aggression and violence.
