It’s not just the 12 million or so illegals. Once made legal, they’ll be able to take part in chain migration and sponsor millions more.
The net gain for Democrats will be much larger than just the 70+% of legalized illegal aliens who go on to vote. It will be 70+% of the millions of relatives they sponsor and the millions of, children they have. This is why it’s crazy to just focus on illegal immigration as many Republican do, and either imply (or outright say) that they are fine with mass legal immigration. Legal immigration is already helping to turn the country to the Democrats.
So while stopping amnesty is a necessity, so to is reducing legal immigration.
“So while stopping amnesty is a necessity, so to is reducing legal immigration.”
You’re right. But since The Stupid Party can’t even figure out that illegal aliens are making it a permanent minority party there’s no chance that the dimwits of the GOP elite will ever slow down the legal immigration from the 3rd world that is having the same effect.
Too many in the GOP are terrified of taking any position that defends the historic American people if it goes against political correctness. And reducing legal immigration from the 3rd world is one of those issues.
So we might well be living at the tail end of American history. The forces that are ending it are already in motion and our rulers aren’t going to left a finger to stop the process. It’s like living in Rome circa AD 400.
