We have enough Democrats already.
We've already lost California.
We not only need to stop immigration, we need to deport at least 40 million immigrants.
I'll pick my own strawberries.
To lighthouse's point, it takes generations to assimilate people, and that's assuming you isolate them from their former environment and immerse them in American culture. That isn't happening, particularly with many Hispanics because of sheer numbers that allow them to live in segregated communities, and with Muslims who come from a culture that is at odds with ideas we embrace here (many of them liberal ideals like gay marriage, but in the political correctness hierarchy Muslims trump both women and gays).
I do believe that over time you could assimilate immigrants to a point where their voting patterns would flatten, but the country will be overrun long before that could play out. I am married to the daughter of immigrants, so I am certainly not against all immigration (although I could support a moratorium on muslim immigration), but I do believe it needs to be done at a pace that allows for assimilation.

It must be whites versus everyone else. The racial agitation is not an accident. The goal is to expand the black experience in America to cover all minority groups (including women of all races), especially recent Hispanic immigrants.
People that vote for democrats believe Ted Cruz and Barack Obama want to get people off "welfare," they just disagree on how to accomplish that. Barack Obama doesn't want to shrink any government entitlement program. It's about dumping as many people onto those programs as possible, and importing them is a way to expedite the process. Racial agitation is a tool used to make sure nobody strays from the flock.Edited by suited - 11/19/15 at 1:41pm
