Trump doesn't want immigrants from 'sh**hole countries'
you clearly think that the US should take immigrants from sh**hole countries
For clarity, countries with a predominantly black, Hispanic or Muslim population.
I don't share bearish's white supremacist viewpoint, and I'd rather use an objective definition of a `sh**hole country.' The point has been made by Paul that various groups periodically issue rankings of countries using various metrics.
for example the world happiness report
pages 22-23, table 2.2, is a "ranking of happiness 2014-2016" with Norway in 1st place, with the US in 14th, behind Costa Rica in 12th.
Haiti, which was looted by the Clintons, is 145th out of 155, with the Central African Republic butt naked last.
Perhaps we could define the bottom quartile as `sh**hole countries' but the floor is open for other suggestions.
An old friend of mine from college used to work for the State Department (joining during the Bush I years) and her first posting was Costa Rica. She seemed to like it there and (at least then) it wasn't a `sh**hole country.'
And because it's not a `sh**hole country,' people are happy to stay there, rather than sneaking into the US through the hole in the fence.
Wiki has a page on Costa Rican Americans
It's old data, but anyhoo,
The Costa Rican population at the 2010 Census was 126,418. Costa Ricans are the fourth smallest Hispanic group in the United States and the smallest Central American population.
There have never been waves of migration from Costa Rica to the United States. The Immigration and Naturalization Service records indicate that very few Costa Ricans have actually tried to enter the country illegally.
I'll tell you something for nothing: if there were only 126,418 Mexicans in the US, we wouldn't need to build a wall.
There actually seems to be some dispute (not necessarily in the liberal media, but elsewhere) about what President Trump actually said, including whether he actually said `sh**hole countries,' and it would appear that several remarks he made have been conflated and distorted
From cuch's link
A second source familiar with the conversation, said Mr Trump, who has vowed to clamp down on illegal immigration, also questioned the need for Haitians in the United States.
What actually seems to have happened was there was an attempt by the democrats to add Haitians with Temporary Protected Status to the DACA amnesty. Those Haitian have been allowed to stay in the US temporarily following the double whammy of an earthquake and looting by the clinton foundation
The statement which the president did make that the US is not going to take Haitians under the amnesty has been presented as a statement that he did not make, that the US does not want to take Haitians, period.
