Many Western nations are restricting immigration because of popular anger at the unwelcome changes brought about by mass immigration. America seems to be the rare country with the misfortune of having politicians who won’t stand up for citizens.

And, to a larger extent, congressional obama phones in the form of lobby cash for the republican house.

Beware if they get the senate. They are not in any way listening to those they are hired to represent hey work for the chamber of commerce

It is PC. I think PC is so deeply entrenched in America, that if the slime bags of the world set off a nuc on American soil, PC would only be strengthened. I know it sucks, but if there is another explanation, I would like to hear it.

the only ones ‘ok’ with it are the dems trying to flood the country with voters

the rest of us see it as lowering wages and undermining the country our families fought and died for.

those promoting it are traitors to the country. there is no other way to see it.

Truth be told, you could have asked this same question at almost any time in this nation’s history.

Once the concept of an “American” nation or culture (predominantly Christian European) was successfully dismantled by the left, it was just a matter of time. White people should now band with their own tribes just as the others do...

I saw what the mass immigration did to the European Union in the past twenty years. I too am for immigration, but in a healthy way.

While traveling Europe I noticed illegal street vendors everywhere playing cat & mouse with the police. When the police would catch them, they would just destroy one of their posters, purses or whatever they were selling and let them go. When asked, all the street vendors were from Morocco. They would all say that as Morocco was on good terms with the EU and they crossed into Spain through Morocco from whatever country in Africa they originated.

The same is true here. Not all immigrants from Mexico are Mexican.

New York City has a similar situation now with all the illegal cabbies & street vendors.

The sense of self-preservation is only for organisms. America is not an organism. There is no national will or group consciousness. America is an idea. The idea is preserved by education. The enemy of America, liberalism, has been in charge of education for fifty years. Liberalism has trained out the concept of American exceptionalism, nationalism and patriotism.

In order for citizens to be on board with America’s preservation, they need to know and understand how America came to be, and why. Since schools don’t teach the truth about that, and haven’t for a few decades, most people would have no reason to care about the country’s preservation. Now, it’s all about “I got mine”, and political correctness. American exceptionalism means nothing.

America commits suicide by choice. It elects open-borders politicians who are willing to surrender sovereignty in the future for transient political power today.

This country knew what lay on the horizon of not defending its borders. No one should be surprised by this.

Wrong. Republicans are also “ok” with it because they want to keep businesses happy with cheap workers. And because their stupid and think they will get some of them to vote Republican.

You can only send so many jobs overseas. Sooner or later you have to bring the cheap labor here.

Self preservation?

The writer does not understand the situation.

The point is fundamental change. Fundamental change is the antithesis of preservation

It’s right here...except I am not represented in the 495beltway; I work for them, they now don’t work for me. I want to preserve it just like J0hn G@lt.

I’d find it funny if it weren’t so true. For those who haven’t seen the HBO comedy from long ago called “The Second Civil War” should find a copy of this movie.

What’s going on at the southern borders was EXACTLY what started the 2nd Civil War in this movie - when one governor said enough was enough.

What is going on at our borders is tantamount to an Act of War. For those who live near Canada (you know, that place up north with un-tanned, drunk white people too nice for their own good?) Just try something like this on their southern border and see how fast the Canadian Military would close their borders.

Who in America wants mass 3rd world immigration? No regular people that's for sure. As I recall even the voters in California tried to stem the tide by voting to deny welfare benefits to illegals but that was overturned by some black robed tyrant. Same thing with gay marriage. How many States voted against legalizing gay marriage only to have it overturned by the same court jesters.

Just about everything that has happened in this country the past 25 years has been against the will of the American people.

Revelation 12:12
New International Version (NIV)
12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens
and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
because he knows that his time is short.”

Watch this four-minute video from May 2014 showing uniformed gang members in matching camo hauling in loads of dope. Shot by civilians using hidden cameras. Our political class is made up of Quisling traitors.

Screen cap from the above video, shot in May this year. Columns of gang members (??) in camo uniforms carrying large packs into the USA, unimpeded.

The most profound national security issue our nation faces is its turning away from God and His rules. That’s why our formerly rich and prosperous nation is already teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, and as our depravity doubles down, God’s wrath will just keep heaping up on us. But we collectively love our sin more than we love God’s blessings, which will only come from obedience. Utterly insane.

The rational thing for rational people to do is to refrain from being part of a suicide pact. The thing about suicide pacts though is that its very difficult to convince those who want to be a part of it to opt out.

Try to talk to Catholic freepers about immigration, the more passionate Catholic freepers, the kind that like to spend time in the religion section, nothing can shake them from supporting immigration, the pro-abortion/pro-gay-pro-left vote it results in is no bother to them.

For real fun, go back a 100 years and see that nothing changes on the immigration front, the left knows how to attain it’s goals.
