Plug the Damn Hole

By Mark Krikorian on June 18, 2010

A column in yesterday's Globe and Mail on the "honor-killing" of Aqsa Parvez in Canada by her Pakistani immigrant family gets to the policy point too many want to avoid:

Decades ago, illiterate Italians also immigrated to Canada, bringing with them a harsh, patriarchal culture where religion dominated all. But they didn't marry cousins imported fresh from the old country. And so they began to raise their children differently.

Despite the pious assertions of the open-borders Right, we cannot address multiculturalism without first reducing immigration. Anyone who claims otherwise is either fooling you or fooling themselves. Only by first plugging the hole will we have any chance of addressing the consequences.
