Hazelton, revisited

The city of Hazelton, PA is back in the news again, and once more the news concerns the immigration/open borders problem.

Some readers may not have been old enough, back in 2006-2007, to hear about the surge in illegal (and probably legal) immigration to places like Hazelton, PA, which had until then had a more homogeneous population. By 2006, what with some Pennsylvania officials openly stating “we need immigrants; we need diversity“. They got what they asked for. Now Hazelton is in the news as a ‘hotspot’ for the Coronavirus. There are 400+ known cases in a town of 27,743.

A Newsweek article from 2016 displays the usual pro-globalist open-borders bias and anti-nativist rhetoric. At the height of the open-borders craziness back in 2006 or so, the mayor of Hazelton was Lou Barletta, who was determined to try to preserve what remained of Hazelton, and yet his best efforts failed as apparently the cheap-labor lobby and the multiculturalists worked against him. The courts also ruled against Barletta’s efforts and in the end the ACLU won out against Barletta and other immigration patriots or skeptics.

Years later the fruits of open borders and promiscuous immigration policies show. Now it appears that Hazelton is majority Spanish-speaking, which is just what was predicted by those of us who were blogging about this back then, and of course the majority did not want to hear it or acknowledge that the skeptics were right. The town is no longer the same place. It’s an old story by now, having happened to various other towns around this country. There is a town, for example, in eastern Washington state which has an entirely Spanish-speaking city council, where town business is carried out in Spanish entirely.

Now our minds are preoccupied with the pandemic, but that too is part of the story. Anyone with sense knows that diseases like open borders. The more “openness” and diversity, the greater the number of strangers from countries with unfamiliar diseases, the more contagious illnesses we have. There is no question about that. It’s not even open to question.

The town of Hazelton has called on the National Guard to help with the increasing number of Coronavirus cases. How they would be able to help is not clear to me. Why are there so many cases there? No one wants to be politically incorrect, even now, so no one wants to mention crowded living conditions (due in part to cultural habits; extended families living in too-small housing, plus non-relatives sharing living spaces. Lack of language skills and education to learn how to prevent illness where possible.

Somehow this will be found to be somebody else’s fault, and money will be allotted to ‘fight’ the pandemic.

Even now I think a lot of Americans are in denial about mass immigration (including legal immigration — it’s about much more than having the right paperwork to enter legally); most I think are resigned to constant change, and the constant flow of ‘newcomers’ whose own ways are drastically different from our own. Our birthright is precious and should not be given away in the name of Holy Diversity or anything else.

One thought on “Hazelton, revisited

  1. I had completely forgotten about Hazelton. I was in college when their mayor attempted to save them. I have some friends in Pennsylvania. Their neck of the woods has lots of Somalis. Apparently no area is safe.
