We already have about 2 million legal foreign workers here on temporary work visas now. We bring in 1.2 million legal permanent immigrants a year, 87% of whom are minorities as defined by the USG. Minorities and immigrants overwhelmingly vote Democrat.
By 2019 half of the children 18 and under in the U.S. will be classified as minorities and by 2042, half of the residents of this country will be minorities. Generally, immigrants and minorities vote predominantly for the Democrat Party. Hence, Democrats view immigration as a never-ending source of voters that will make them the permanent majority party.
The real question that needs to be asked is whether we need 1.2 million legal immigrants every year. There is no correlation between the number of jobs created and the number and types of legal immigrants. The decade ending in 2010 was the highest in our history in terms of the number of legal permanent immigrants admitted, 13.9 million, yet during that same period we suffered a net loss of jobs of 400,000. This is insanity.
