Further proof that intelligence, social status, economic progress and social adaptability are inherent and unchangeable genetic attributes has come with the a new study that has found no appreciable difference in achievement levels between first and third generation Mexican “immigrants” in America.
According to the study, titled “Grandchildren of Low-Skill Immigrants Have Lagging Education and Earnings” issued by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), the grandchildren of Mexican “immigrants” to America graduate from college less often, score lower on the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT), and earn less income than comparable white immigrants.
“The best available evidence on the grandchildren of Mexican immigrants suggests that low-skill immigrants have long-term impacts, as skill deficits persist at least into the third generation,” the report said.
“The intergenerational assimilation of low-skill immigrants is an important issue in the broader immigration debate.
“If the children and grandchildren of low-skill immigrants eventually rise to the same socioeconomic level as natives, then the poverty-related problems caused by low-skill immigration, though painful today, will dissipate over time.
“Past research on the assimilation of Americans who have ancestors from Mexico (the largest source of low-skill immigration to the United States) indicates that Mexican-Americans continue to lag behind in the third generation and beyond.
“Although the average education level of immigrants to the United States has been rising, the post-1965 immigration wave remains markedly less skilled than the native population. Immigrants currently account for 40 percent of all working-age Americans without a high school diploma, more than double their percentage of the general population.
“The impact of this low-skill immigration has been mixed. Their low earnings exacerbate the problems of poverty, welfare dependence, poor academic performance, and social isolation, and they compete in the labor market with U.S. natives who struggle with similar issues.”
Referring to the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT), which has scores are computed using the Standard Scores from four ASVAB subtests: Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), Mathematics Knowledge (MK), Paragraph Comprehension (PC), and Word Knowledge (WK), the report revealed that “fourth-plus generation whites score 17.1 AFQT percentile points higher than third-generation Mexican-Americans from the ethnic sample, and the 90 percent confidence interval around that difference extends 4.8 percentile points in either direction — i.e., from 12.3 to 21.9. Because the confidence interval does not contain zero, the difference is statistically significant at the 90 percent level.”
The report does not dare mention that Mexico has an average IQ of between 83 and 91, which, according to the internationally-accepted Stanford-Binet scale of intelligence, is firmly in the “dull” range.
Given that intelligence has now been proven beyond any question to be genetic (it can even be determined in unborn embryos using genomic screening), it is clear that allowing millions of fast-reproducing Mexicans into America will not “turn” them into Americans, but will rather turn America into Mexico.
