Limit immigration or watch conservative efforts become irrelevant.
People come to America because it is a remarkable oasis of freedom, prosperity, and opportunity. Conservatives recognize that the principal reason for our unique abundance is our constitutional restraint on the power of government. As Thomas Jefferson said, In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.
Maintaining this system requires the public to support limited government. In a new report, Eagle Forum details how immigration is fundamentally changing the electorate to one that is much more supportive of big government.
By itself, the annual flow of 1.1 million legal immigrants under the current system will create more than 5 million new potential voters by 2024 and more than 8 million by 2028. Congressional Budget Office projections indicate that under the Senate Gang of Eights S.744 bill, the total additional potential voters would rise to nearly 10 million by 2024 and 18 million by 2028. The influx of these new voters would reduce or eliminate Republicans ability to offer an alternative to big government, to increased government spending, to higher taxes, and to favorite liberal policies such as Obamacare and gun control.
There is nothing controversial about the reports conclusion that both Hispanics and Asians, who account for about three-fourth of todays immigrants, generally agree with the Democrats big-government agenda. It is for this reason that they vote two-to-one for Democrats.
The 2008 National Annenberg Election Survey found that 62 percent of immigrants prefer a single, government-run health-care system. The 2010 Cooperative Congressional Election Study found that 69 percent of immigrants support Obamacare. Pew also found that 53 percent of Hispanics have a negative view of capitalism, the highest of any group surveyed.

Demographics is not our friend.
And after spending parts of 2 days at the maternity hospital last week, not many future Republicans are being birthed.
Republicans are never born that way; jobs, crime, faith, taxes, and national security concerns lead to a Republican political alliance.
I don’t know about the republican political party but Conservatism is natural, and many are conservative from youth.
I was born conservative, but have never been able to closely identify with the republican party, or any party.
