In my cynical moments, I see this as a plot by rich transnationalists. That includes both wealthy Republicans and Democrats. To be brutally honest, this type of thing is good for the managerial/professional/political class. Non-English speaking Mexicans are not going to take away their jobs at Morgan Stanley. As an employer, it's a lot easier to mistreat an illiterate illegal from Chiapas than it is an American-born lower-middle-class person (they have guns, remember). Products and services become cheaper.
Hell, you can even let some of the brightest newcomers into the upper echelons of society. Helps to bring new blood into the Patrician classes.
The Roman Empire was like this, in its last days. The elites became even more rapacious, while the mob became even more useless to the Empire.
Meanwhile, the barbarians gathered over the Danube....
The barbarians are already here. All you have ton do is travel a mere 20 blocks from where I live and see a magnificent Mosque and an avenue full of Arabesque cafés and even a store named "Islamic Fashions" where you can purchase the latest hajib and veil. In the meantime the women push baby carriages down the street while having five or six other children in tow. At least I assume they are women, I can't really tell since they all dress in black and are covered from head to toe except for a slit where I assume their eyes are. Of course these people hope that someday everyone in America will join them and emulate them. I assume that given enough time and the way things are they may just have their wish.
Guess which religion is the fastest growing among hispanics? Right under the radar and it's not happening in prisons either. I think you probably guessed already.
“The biggest problem I see is that we seem to have given up on the idea of assimilating newcomers. If this country becomes less white but retains American culture, I don’t see a problem. However, government programs and “multiculturalism” have de-emphasized assimilation.

No, its a plot by the Gramscian cultural marxists. This is their way to deconstruct our successful anglo-saxon-derived Judeo-Christian-based limited-govt free democratic republic.
To overthrow a culture, marginalize it within a wider multi-cultural context. Then let demographics do the rest.
