In a saner world, it wouldn’t matter.
It would be one thing if the American political system, founded by the framers of the US constitution in 1776, was working as it ought to, but the US is in a post-constitutional phase, the rule of law means little anymore to those with their hands on the levers of power, and to those radicals/anti-constitutionalists influencing them and voting them into office.
What is happening in the immigration debate is nothing less than a coup for the Mexican government and the Democratic party, in a vast wealth distribution scheme in exchange for political votes. The Mexican government gets the wealth of ”new U.S. citizens” through the benefits they receive from the imploding U.S. welfare system, and the Democrats get 11 million plus new voters.
The infusion of multiculturalism into the time honored ‘U.S. ‘melting pot” society is crucial for the statists of the radical Left, it’s a key element in the class warfare project. Obama said early on that the U.S. is but a short time away from being fundamentally transformed, and that is what we are seeing.
Again, all of this would be moot, if immigration was happening in a responsible fashion, the borders protected, and the U.S. still rooted in rugged individualism, free market capitalism, an innocuous government living within its means and abiding by its constitution. Such a system, overwhelmingly supported by the citizenry and upheld by their elected politicians, wouldn’t be troubled by the ethnic background of ”the majority”.

For the first time, America’s racial and ethnic minorities now make up about half of the under-5 age group, the government said Thursday. It’s a historic shift that shows how young people are at the forefront of sweeping changes by race and class.
The new census estimates, a snapshot of the U.S. population as of July 2012, comes a year after the Census Bureau reported that whites had fallen to a minority among babies. Fueled by immigration and high rates of birth, particularly among Hispanics, racial and ethnic minorities are now growing more rapidly in numbers than whites.
It’s the latest in a series of reports that have signaled a major, long-term shift in the demographics of the United States, as non-Hispanic white Americans are expected to become a minority group over the next three decades. For years, Americans of Asian, black and Hispanic descent have stood poised to topple the demographic hegemony historically held by whites.
