Rule Five Great Replacement Friday

There is a thing called “replacement theory,” wherein it’s hypothesized that (at least part of) the reason for the Biden administration’s blithely allowing in a few million illegal immigrants is to, essentially, stack the census by artificially inflating the population of the predominantly urban blue cities and states. The thing is, intentional or not, that’s sure as hell what’s happening.  Issues & Insights has the news.

Earlier this week we reported on our findings about net domestic migration trends in the U.S. based on voting patterns in the 2020 elections. (See: “The Great Divorce: 3.7 Million Have Fled Counties That Voted For Biden.”)

But we realized there was a discrepancy in the numbers. For example, while more than 483,000 people have moved out of Los Angeles County since 2020, the county’s population only declined by 351,000. Over the past three years, more than 88,000 Americans left Harris County, Texas, yet its population actually increased by 104,000.

And, while we found that, overall, 3.7 million people moved out of Biden-voting counties since the 2020 elections, the population of these counties went down by less than 1.5 million.

Why the difference?

Were those who stayed behind particularly fertile and long-lived?

No. The difference is almost entirely from what the Census Bureau calls “net international migration.”

It’s important to note that the census doesn’t just count citizens – it counts everyone who lives in each state, and those numbers are used to determine the apportioning of Congressional representatives.

Overall, the country saw a net gain of 2,534,150 people from international migration from 2020 to 2023, Census data show. These are presumably what Census describes as “lawful permanent residents.” (A separate report shows that in 2021 and 2022, there were 1.8 million people who obtained lawful permanent resident status, and the average per year is close to 1 million. So that would easily account for the 2.5 million net immigrants.)

Where are they coming from? Census data show that 35% are from Central and South America, 37% from Asian countries (including 6% from China, and 12% from India), 8% from Africa, and less than 7% from Europe.

Here’s the onion:

Of the more than 2.5 million international migrants, more than 2 million went to counties that voted for Biden. Which means fewer than 500,000 of them ended up in counties that voted for Trump.

Here’s another way to look at it:

Of the 100 counties with the largest gains from net international migration since 2020, all but eight of them voted for Biden in 2020.

At the other end of the spectrum, of the 100 counties with the lowest levels of net international migration, only five voted for Biden.

You can see the complete data set that we compiled here.

It’s hard to see this as anything but deliberate.

I’m generally inclined to see anything bad the Biden administration does – in other words, anything at all that the Biden administration does – is the result of stupidity and/or incompetence rather than malice.  But this situation just stinks a little too much to be random stupidity.

No, this seems an awful lot like a calculated tactic to raise the odds of keeping the United States House of Representatives in Democrat hands.  And, as we’ve seen in all the news of late – you can see a lot of my own coverage of this linked in yesterday’s Red Thursday post – this uncontrolled, unchecked illegal immigration isn’t really a good thing.

The Biden administration has let in millions of illegal aliens, and we have no idea who most of them are, where they intend to go, or what they intend to do when they get there; we are, effectively, setting ourselves up for our own Crocus City Hall/October 7th event.

Nothing about this will end well.
