In a new report, the Reuters news agency is breaking the media silence on the transformative effects that deliberately-engineered mass immigration could have on the Republican Party’s future prospects. Spoiler: It doesn’t bode well for the GOP.
Few have proposed reducing the level of legal immigration in recent years. In fact, the idea has been “absent from presidential politics for at least 20 years,” Reuters writes — not mentioning that Democrats, Republicans, corporations and anti-American activist groups alike each enjoy their own benefits, such as cheap labor and dependent voters. Reuters continues:
Since 1989, the United States has been letting in about 1 million new immigrants per year, a level comparable to the last great wave of European immigration at the turn of the 20th Century. The Census Bureau estimates there are now 43.3 million foreign-born residents in the United States and within 10 years immigrants will account for 15 percent of the population, a record high.
As Breitbart News has asked: Who voted to bring 33 million foreigners into the U.S.? Reuters’ polls are also misleading: 75 percent of Americans want businesses to raise wages instead of hiring cheap foreign labor. No mainstream media outlet has yet reported that by an overwhelming majority, whatever their political affiliation, race or sex, Americans prefer immigration restrictions to minimum wage hikes.
Reuters brushes off the crippling effects mass immigration has on the U.S. economy:
Economists have generally found that immigration has little to no effect on wages over the long term. Some argue that immigration has boosted overall wages because immigrants create more demand for goods and services and they generally do not directly compete with U.S.-born workers for the same jobs.
This is utter nonsense. Legal and illegal immigrants took all newly-created jobs from 2000 to 2014, thus hijacking the economy’s total net employment gain. The native-born population suffered job losses while immigrants enjoyed job growth.
Furthermore, Hispanic job growth outpaced white Americans’ job growth by five times the rate in a single year, as the New York Times has reported, surpassing even black Americans’ employment gains. And Americans are fed up with unchecked immigration — another Democratic legacy — telling pollsters they want to see some enforcement. Pew found that 59 percent of Hispanics, along with 72 percent of whites and 66 percent of blacks, and 69 percent of all Americans want to “restrict and control” immigration. This, despite the poll questions framing America as a deeply racist country.
But, Reuters is frank about one thing:
The effect on the political landscape is more clear cut… Immigrants favor Democratic candidates and liberal policies by a wide margin, surveys show, and they have moved formerly competitive states like Illinois firmly into the Democratic column and could turn Republican strongholds like Georgia and Texas into battlegrounds in the years to come, according to University of Maryland political science professor James Gimpel.
No one ever asks immigrants why they choose to vote Left on nearly every policy — instead, reporters will strip the immigrants of agency and lay blame at the feet of Republicans who don’t toe the GOP establishment’s line on immigration to intimidate them. Calling a failure to enforce existing immigration laws “a broken system” is another word trick Reuters and other outlets play to push for amnesty.
But Reuters’ gloating means that the few on the Right who have warned about mass immigration’s effects are proven right: Especially conservative author, Ann Coulter.
In her latest best-selling book, Adios, America! The Left’s Plan to Turn The Country into A Third-World Hellhole, Coulter points out that Democrats, despite recent setbacks at the voting booth, have played the long game in transforming the electorate to better suit their plans. In 1998, Coulter notes, Democratic consultant Patrick Reddy cheered on the massive demographic shifts: “The 1965 Immigration Reform Act promoted by President Kennedy, drafted by Attorney General Robert Kennedy, and pushed through the Senate by Ted Kennedy has resulted in a wave of immigration from the Third World that should shift the nation in a more liberal direction within a generation. It will go down as the Kennedy family’s greatest gift to the Democratic Party.”
Immigrants vote Democratic because perhaps the only aspect of American identity they’ve adopted is an allegiance to the political party that promises them handouts, Coulter argues. The more immigrants, the more Democratic voters and cheap workers businesses can use instead of both low- and highly-skilled Americans — to the ultimate detriment to the economy and the dissolution of the country.
“The mass migration of the poorest of the poor to America is bad for the whole country, but it’s fantastic for Democrats,” Coulter writes.
Ask yourself: Which party benefits from illiterate non-English speakers who have absolutely no idea what they’re voting for, but can be instructed to learn certain symbols? The foreign poor are prime Democratic constituents because they’re easily demagogued into tribal voting. A white person can vote Republican or Democratic without anyone saying to him, “HOW CAN YOU VOTE AGAINST YOUR RACE?”
By contrast, every nonwhite person is required to vote Democrat. Republicans’ whispering sweet nothings in Hispanic ears isn’t going to change that. Voting Democratic is part of their cultural identity. Race loyalty trumps the melting pot.
Case in point: Reuters ended the article on a triumphant note: “‘How are we going to reach out to more people and be more inclusive?’ said Johnny Cabazos, a Colorado office worker and aspiring Republican politician. ‘I just don’t think that helps.'”
It’s easy to understand why Democrats are destroying immigration law enforcement, but why are Republicans pushing for amnesty that would satisfy donors, but could doom their party? Coulter maps out a simple, time-tested electoral strategy for Republicans that doesn’t involve invoking the magic word “diversity.”
“Historically, when Republicans ignore white voters, they lose,” Coulter writes. “When they ignore minorities and drive up the white vote, they win. Reagan took out a sitting president in 1980 by sweeping the New Deal coalition, ‘except for blacks and Hispanics,’ according to a Washington Post analysis… Rule of thumb, Republicans: If you aren’t being called ‘racist’ by the New York Times, you’re losing.”
Reuters naturally hews to this script: “Voters like Colorado retiree Jan Herron who see the nation’s increasing diversity as a threat to their way of life,” Reuters clucks. How dare this poor guy on the street not celebrate the demise of his culture, language, and political traditions!
Diversity makes everything the same, and worse, brings it down to the lowest common denominator. While Reuters cheers the impending leftist monolith that will disenfranchise every conservative voter, Coulter and candidates like Donald Trump and Scott Walker who have sensible positions on immigration show Americans can exercise control over their country — in the narrow window they still have.
