Amy Wax is in trouble again

Inside Higher Ed reports:
Amy Wax is in trouble again, this time for her comments on race and immigration. The Robert Mundheim Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania reportedly argued at a conference last week for “taking the position that our country will be better off with more whites and fewer nonwhites.”
That is not what she actually said, but it was enuf to get her denounced by the Penn Law dean as repugnant to the university.

That is just somebody's inference. Here is what she apparently said that was so offensive:
“Conservatives need a realistic approach to immigration that … preserves the United States as a Western and first-world nation,” Wax reportedly said during a panel. “We are better off if we are dominated numerically … by people from the first world, from the West, than by people who are from less advanced countries.”

These are "toxic topics that lie outside the Overton window in polite society -- as evidenced by outraged reaction to [President] Trump’s profane and grating ‘why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?’ That needs to be regarded as a serious question and not just a rhetorical one," she also said.

Wax has previously attracted criticism with related statements. She wrote in a 2017 op-ed that “all cultures are not equal,” despite the modern “obsession with race,” for instance.
Full transcript here.

The USA can have an immigration policy that preserves the nation, or one that systematically replaces Whites with Third World migrants. This is an important public policy question that deserves open debate.

However, only one side is permitted, even if it is by a distinguished tenured professor speaking on her own time outside the university.

It is now fair to assume that academia is now dominated by leftists who wish to exterminate White people.

I am happy to report that Amy Wax is Jewish. Not all Jews are on the wrong side of this issue.
