To arrive at this figure, Gallup interviewed 452,199 people at least 15 years or older in 151 countries around the world from 2009 and 2011. Gallup asked: “Ideally, if you had the opportunity, would you like to move permanently to another country, or would you prefer to continue living in this country? To which country would you like to move?”

The 150 million people whom Gallup estimated would like to come to the United States includes 22 million Chinese, 15 million Nigerians, 10 million Indians, 8 million Bangladeshis, 7 million Brazilians, 5 million Filipinos, 5 million Japanese, 5 million Mexicans, and 3 million each from Vietnam, Kenya and the United Kingdom.

I saw an article somewhere that said Mexican immigration was on the decline, credited border patrol and falling Mexican birthrates. Don’t know if it’s accurate or not.

It’s too late.

We’ve had a generation of congresscritters and presidents on both the GOP and RAT side who have mortally wounded this nation by allowing the entry of uncountable useless individuals who have no intention of ever assimilating and who insist on maintaining their own “culture”.
