It says here that our illegal aliens are about to crank out some 300,000 "anchor babies" this year
you should be happy, because, you, the American taxpayers, are the godparents of these babies. Your taxes will pay for their food, their medical bills, their education. Congratulations!
And the reason for democrats to be for open borders:
The U.S. is nearly alone in granting birthright citizenship to the children of foreign nationals and, specifically, illegal aliens. For example, the U.S. and Canada are the only two developed nations with birthright citizenship. On the other hand, countries such as France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Italy, and Germany all have either outlawed birthright citizenship or never had such a policy to begin with.
While foreign nationals and illegal aliens continue to take advantage of the country’s birthright citizenship policy, the foreign-born population has boomed to a 108-year record high. In 1970, the total foreign-born population in the U.S. was 9.5 million.
Today, foreign-born residents account for nearly 14 percent of the total U.S. population, and by 2060, the Census Bureau projects that about one-in-six residents in the U.S. will be foreign-born if the country’s legal immigration policy continues.
The country’s legal immigration policy is already having widespread electoral implications. In the 2020 presidential election, Pew Research Center projects that about one-in-ten U.S. voters will have been born outside the country, and Hispanic Americans are set to outpace black Americans as the largest voting minority in the election for the first time in American history.
In the next two decades, should the country’s legal immigration policy go unchanged, the U.S. is set to import about 15 million new foreign-born voters. About eight million of these new foreign-born voters will have arrived through chain migration.
Foreign-born voters, as research by Axios, the New York Times, University of Maryland, College Park researcher James Gimpel, and Ronald Brownstein has confirmed, are more likely than native-born Americans to vote for Democrats.
The report, which analyzes the changing demographics of voting-eligible populations in 45 competitive Congressional races across the country, projects that the white vote is expected to decline in all but one of the 45 competitive districts between 2016 and 2018, while the Hispanic vote is projected to increase in all but eight of these districts during that same time period.
There is no question that the future of the US is destined to head in a progressive, liberal direction. Current extreme ideas like the fake climate crisis and Green new hoax are being embraced by tens of millions already today.
There is nothing that can stop this. Eventually, the numbers will be overwhelming. Trump is sort of a last ditch effort to (MAGA) get control back, temporarily for conservatives but the population is shifting with almost no chance of reversing and many in the MSM have already made the complete conversion to a belief system imposing extreme left ideas.
Seriously, there is almost no chance, that in 10 years the US will not be more to much more liberal with democrats likely controlling most of the politics. I would bet at least a 50% chance of socialism.
"In the next two decades, should the country’s legal immigration policy go unchanged, the U.S. is set to import about 15 million new foreign-born voters. About eight million of these new foreign-born voters will have arrived through chain migration."
That's been the plan. People call Ed Kennedy's immigration reform act of 65 the greatest gift to the dems. Existing demographics would never have supported the agenda, so they needed to change the demographics. It's a toss up between that and Johnson's "Great Society", the one that would have "those N***ers" voting democrat for 200 years" while simultaneously halting the precipitous drop in US poverty rates that started following WWII.
I suspect a constitutional amendment to remove the "birthright citizenship" would pass the senate and a 2 thirds majority of the states. But it would stall in the house, with a majority dem, for the above mentioned.
So, the best we can do is secure the border. And Trump is, when you consider the opposition, from both parties?, working miracles.
I feel this research is outdated, even though the date of the report is just days ago. Some of the data and charts end in 2015-2017 and as we know, just during the last 5 months, the dynamics have done a complete metamorphose on our southern border.
However, it does provide some perspective of the past:
"The United States has more immigrants than any other country in the world. Today, more than 40 million people living in the U.S. were born in another country, accounting for about one-fifth of the world’s migrants in 2017. The population of immigrants is also very diverse, with just about every country in the world represented among U.S. immigrants."
So we are the most generous country in the world.............by a wide margin. Not just with immigration but also our donations of money and assistance to help the world's less fortunate.
And so far, this has not hurt us much..........especially here in 2019 with a booming economy, despite a million more people gushing in a year.
Unfortunately, it will be almost impossible for that to continue. Even if we slammed the door to all immigration(I'm not for that), the inevitable future which includes automation replacing many millions, maybe tens of millions of jobs is not that far ahead.
This opinion below is extreme but to not acknowledge the likelihood of at least 15% or more of jobs being replaced in 15 years is complete denial of whats coming.
At that point, when unemployment soars well into the double digits...........and how won't that happen because 30 million new jobs from the magic land of the Green New Deal will not come out of nowhere to rescue us... what happens?
Although the number of illegal aliens having children in the United States has been rising over the years, the immigration benefits of having a child born in the United States are limited. Citizen children cannot sponsor parents for entry into the country until they are 21 years of age nor block their deportation by being related to the unlawfully present parent.
What is more, there is a 10 year bar to re-entry if the parent has ever been in the country illegally for more than a year, which makes the notion of birthright impractical as a means of gaining immediate legal status in the USA. At best the move is a long term strategy employed by foreigners who foresee a benefit for their children in their later years, when they are of college age.
damn I feel better already Carl. You are saying its silly to worry because the illegals which broke our laws will not have chance to harm us further because they will obey the law.....well if that ain't the liberal mind and logic at work I do not know what is
Those who put words in peoples' mouth usually put their foot in their own mouth.
