Many liberals point to the fact that the USA was founded by immigrants and that is why the USA should open its borders to more immigrants now.
Yes, and our founding fathers were also cautious about the effects of immigration. That is exactly why they demanded in the Constitution that the president be a natural born citizen.
Without immigrants and their offspring for the last forty years, the USA population would be 200 million today instead of 300 million. One third of the current population is from immigration which is too much for a culture and an economy to assimilate, so now our culture and our economy are paying the price.
A congressman who wishes to remain anonymous discussed this with me for an hour in his Washington office in the spring of 2010. He said that Congress was well aware of the problems caused by too low of a birth rate to Caucasians in the 70s and 80s. He went on to say that the federal government deliberately allowed immigration in large numbers in the 90s and early 2000s to compensate for those low birth rates so there would be enough young, lower paid employees to work at McDonalds, pick our crops, clean our homes, and mow our lawns. He said that Congress did not foresee the problems that would be caused by such a huge amount of immigration. Congress underestimated the effects on our health system, our schools, and our communities.
He said that “Congress did not foresee the problems of increased immigration.”
Wow, Congress did not foresee the problems. And how many other problems does Congress not foresee from its actions? How about Obamacare, increasing the debt ceiling, and increasing the federal deficit?
This immigration problem is not only in the USA. It is throughout the industrialized world. England is feeling it. France is feeling it. All of Europe is feeling the pains of increased immigration to offset the impact of low birth rates to Caucasians. On October 17, 2010, the BBC posted an article about German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, titled “Merkel says German multicultural society has failed.” Merkel states: “(at) the beginning of the 60s our country called the foreign workers to come to Germany and now they live in our country.” She added: “We kidded ourselves a while, we said: ‘They won’t stay, sometime they will be gone’, but this isn’t reality.” “And of course, the approach [to build] a multicultural [society] and to live side-by-side and to enjoy each other… has failed, utterly failed.”
Why did the Germans encourage immigrants to come to Germany for the last fifty years? Because they did not have enough younger, lower paid German employees to do the lesser jobs due to a negative birth rate. All of the industrialized nations had too low of intrinsic birth rates and all of them encouraged immigration to solve it. So, all of them are paying a price economically and culturally because of high immigration to offset low birth rates. And this is exactly what liberals and the New World Order want. It is the ultimate method to redistribute the wealth and to dilute the dominance of conservatives in traditional western cultures.
The huge amount of immigration to industrialized countries from third world countries has been disastrous. Yahoo News posted this article on February 10, 2011:
PARIS (AFP) – French President Nicolas Sarkozy declared Thursday that multiculturalism had failed, joining a growing number of world leaders or ex-leaders who have condemned it.
“My answer is clearly yes, it is a failure,” he said in a television interview when asked about the policy which advocates that host societies welcome and foster distinct cultural and religious immigrant groups.
“Of course we must all respect differences, but we do not want… a society where communities coexist side by side.”
“If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community, and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France.”
“We have been too concerned about the identity of the person who was arriving and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him.”
British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Australia’s ex-prime minister John Howard and Spanish ex-premier Jose Maria Aznar have also recently said multicultural policies have not successfully integrated immigrants.
The issue is not immigration. The issue is the volume of immigration. The issue is assimilation into the culture. Industrialized countries allowed huge amounts of immigration because their birth rates were so low. That huge volume hampered assimilation. Western Europe learned the hard way. What will it take for the USA to learn that it needs to curtail immigration and make more babies … quickly?
