Several commentators over the last few months have asked why, in deploring Ireland's immigration policies I always focus on blacks and Muslims, never on Poles or other East Europeans, whose numbers are significantly greater.
Fair question, and I have a simple answer. And it is that white immigrants will, with some exceptions, work hard and will have little difficulty with, or objection to, integrating with the local population. There a numerous examples of this already, Germans and French in West Cork, Dutch in Cobh. Never a problem, seamless integration and assimilation with the native population.
On the other hand we have seen everywhere - everywhere - that blacks and Muslims cause problems wherever they go. Always. Crime, welfare dependency, violence, and additionally, in the case of Muslims, fundamental incompatibility with democratic Western values. Again, when it comes to them, time does not heal. In fact things get worse over time.
That's it, question answered.
