The "No-Go" Zones of Europe

Recently, there has been some confusion over reports heard on Fox News about "no-go" zones in European cities. Make no mistake: They do exist, and they are real. Soeren Kern has an article in the Gatestone Institute which describes these areas.

The reason they exist in Europe and not in the US is that the Europeans brought in millions of workers from Islamic countries along with their families and paid no attention to the idea of assimilation assuming they would stay temporally and eventually leave. However, instead of leaving, they remained and had more children who are now the disaffected and unassimilated ones. In contrast, most of our Muslim immigrants came as educated experienced people. They became doctors, nurses, engineers, and they moved into neighborhoods with everyone else. In that respect, they became assimilated. Their children are now in the universities. The problem is that some of these children are caught up in world events and becoming radicalized. To add to our situation, tens of thousands of people have arrived here as refugees from places like Somalia. That is also true in Europe.

We need to watch what happens in Europe carefully. It is a textbook example of how not to do immigration.

I'm a little bit more worried about the Hispanic Catholic "No-Go" Zones in America.

A white guy who does not speak Spanish would feel pretty out of place in places like East LA.

I have never had a problem in ELA. They have great Mexican restaurants. Of course, I speak Spanish and always went there with my DEA pals or my Mexican wife and in-laws.

"I have never had a problem in ELA. They have great Mexican restaurants."

I'm sure many White British folk can say the same about Birmingham, and it various Pakistani and Indian restaurants.

The point is that when you go to East LA you no longer feel like you are in America.

That is the same criticism European supposedly have. A group that does not assimilate well.

Catholics in America. Muslims in Europe.

Catholics in America? C'mon.

I would say that it is the illegal alien Mexicans whose assimilation is slower not Mexican Americans.

As for Indian restaurants in London, I used to seek them out when I went there as an alternative to British food. But they were in all parts of the city and most Indians are not Muslim.

Gary took the words out of my mouth. Hispanic neighborhoods have never made me feel like I am no longer in America.
