At The American Conservative, Pat Buchanan explains the political realities of unabated mass migration into the United States. Already two of America’s most populous states are majority-minority, and with minority voting heavily skewed toward Democrats, Red State America will cease to exist if current trends persist. Only President Trump’s efforts to control illegal immigration at the border have any chance of protecting America from an illegal migrant wave. Pat writes (abridged):
Among the reasons Donald Trump is president is that his natural political instincts are superior to those of any other current figure.
As campaign 2018 entered its final week, Trump seized upon and elevated the single issue that most energizes his populist base and most convulses our media elite.
Warning of an “invasion,” he pointed to the migrant caravan that had come out of Honduras and was wending its way through Mexico. He then threatened to issue an executive order ending birthright citizenship.
As other caravans began to assemble in Central America, Trump said he would send, first 5,200 and then 15,000, troops to the border.
This ignited the predictable hysteria of the media elite who decried his “racism,” his “lying” and his “attack on the 14th Amendment.” Trump, they railed, is(in) sending more troops to the Mexican border than we have in Syria or Iraq.
While almost all of our immigration before 1965 was from Europe, only 1 in 10 immigrants now comes from the Old Continent.
Of America’s most populous states — California, Texas, Florida and New York — the first two are already minority-majority and the latter two are not far behind.
Politically, continued mass migration to the USA by peoples of color, who vote 70-90 percent Democratic, is going to change our country another way.
Red state America will inevitably turn blue.
