I have listened to a recording of Wax's talk and spoken with others who attended it. This thread is incorrect — were you there, Yoram? — and I stand by my original reporting. Will likely be writing more on this, and the revealing parts of Yoram's arguments here.
Here is the surrounding context for Wax's comments. It's excruciatingly clear that she is endorsing an immigration system that (in effect) prefers whites over non-whites
The speech also began with her saying "Conservatives need a realistic approach to immigration that...preserves the United States as a Western and First World nation.” It concludes with this passage:
Oh, and I wasn't the only journalist in attendance to report the comments that way. @jennyschuessler at the Times (nytimes.com/2019/07/19/art…) and @RosieGray at Buzzfeed (buzzfeednews.com/article/rosieg…) heard the same thing from Wax
@jennyschuessler @RosieGray So on my side are the audio recording, the surrounding paragraphs of context, and the reads of other journalists attending the panel. On the other is Yoram's citation of Wax's published paper — which is significantly different from her talk! — and his cry of "fake news"
