Was this guy a plant, or not?

Maybe I need patience?

In Japan due to declining birth rates, which is portrayed as a very bad thing, immigration, never popular there, is being pushed hard.

People love Japan for a lot of good reasons, but the reason Japan is the way it is, is inarguably because, wait for it, most people are Japanese who agree on most things.

So to sum up, the 'solution' for Japan is to bring in millions of gaijin from wherever. That will be the end of Japan as we know it, but hey. So what?

I really do not understand why immigration is pushed so hard. Lord Trudeau wants to bring 2.5. million people every year, because, because, until, at some point, soon, "Canada" will be gone. But hey, "So what?"

Open borders make sense... if there are absolutely NO government handouts. So either there’s handouts and the border is closed; or no handouts and open borders. It’s one or the other but not both.

My understanding is that the Irish and Italian immigrants that came here at the end of the 19th and early 20th century weren’t expecting handouts. They got to work because it was sink or swim. Assistance was provided by charitable organizations that received their donations through voluntary contributions.

Ah, yes. Always so inspired by the stories of how my great-grandparents came to America with only the shirts on their backs and then pulled themselves up by nothing but their generous government handouts. That's how it went, right?

The Great Replacement hasn't been a conspiracy theory ever since Tony Blair admitted that's what his Labour government was DELIBERATELY DOING.

"Not America" is a global phenomena. Throughout the 'West' the invasions we label as immigration are, rapidly, very rapidly, changing 'liberal democracies' into VERY different, VERY illiberal countries.

The UK is no longer the country in which I was fortunate enough to spend part of my youth. “Immigration” has changed many of her cities - beyond recognition. And Canada, the formerly great white north, where I learned to appreciate the wilderness, in all of it's splendour, transformed by immigration into a socialist haven for the teeming masses. The USA, the world's great experiment in freedom, where I was lucky enough to go to school, and work for many years, is swirling around the bowl on it's way down the sewer.

All gone, or going. Transformed in a few short decades into slightly cleaner, (for now), banana republics. Ruled by nameless, faceless, unaccountable bureaucrats. Monsters in cheap suits, who have weaponized government to selectively suppress the fundamental freedoms. The people who built the nations that became British, Canadian, or American are no longer permitted to exercise free speech, to practice of their religion, or to freely assemble. Those 'rights' seem to be reserved for much more recent immigrants. People to whom the old “melting pot” theories simply do not apply. People who bring their culture, and laws, with them. And, somehow, impose those alien customs and laws on the folks who built the very countries they invade.

Borders matter. No border, no country. Or at least no country recognizable as the ones I grew up in.

Apparently the recently-approved WA state budget includes 45.7 million dollars for "Expansion of Apple Health-like coverage to undocumented residents with incomes below 138% of federal poverty level."

I thought it was illegal to do that, but apparently it's okay for emperor Inslee and his leftist minions.

The subhead is a contradiction in terms.

It's giving me a headache.

SC- When faced with change and adversity, all organisms have three choices: stagnate (terminate), mutate or migrate. The motives of the "gatekeepers" must constantly be examined: usually immigrants are cheaper compliant labor and they are consumers, tax payers and eventually voters.

"most Americans would agree that it’s immoral to stop a person who wants to move from Seattle, Washington to Spokane, Washington. The same goes for somebody who wants to move from Texas to Illinois....."

Rule #1 Gotta say no to anywhere its easy to find a date, at a family reunion.

"the same exact thing is true of America and importing non-Americans. Sooner or later you end up in a place that no longer resembles America."

Its all relative, look what has happened... https://youtu.be/h0sxwGlTLWw

The Great Tatanka are long gone, and perhaps if the Iroquois, Algonquin, Sioux and Roanoac had been more like the Comanche, we might not be having this discussion.

And they called it paradise... https://youtu.be/p4zR9r9olOg

"One of the most basic functions of government is to set immigration policy."

I may be a picky person, but in a democracy, the People set immigration policy, if only as *re*public, and therefore, the People bear responsibility for the Democrat pay-no-mind-to-the-border-move-along-nothing-to-see-there-we-have-it-under-control-yeah-that's-the-ticket immigration policy.

Bottom line: borders are not imaginary. They are vital.

Democrats are making an assumption that these illegals would vote for them. That same assumption with regard to Latinos and Arab Americans has not gone according to plan.

In a way I wish we could do what other countries do which is admit those with skills that we need. I also know that right here in Texas there are lots of places begging for help. But, housing here is unaffordable, even people who live and work here can barely make it. I would love if immigrants could learn the language, have some basic life skills, and have a bit of money so that they can survive themselves. No handouts, because they don’t work. I also think the influx of others into the country will have an effect on who and who isn’t elected. Many feel that the democrats are letting all these people in so they can vote out every republican, and I can see that. But after they have been here a while their personal beliefs will come to the surface to change their vote. Democrats might just be inviting the next wave of staunch republicans who don’t back down.

Considering the amount of black and hispanic voters turning away from the democratic party as they realize they were “better off under Trump”, it becomes obvious the libs have to replace their dwindling voter base with a new voters. What better way than create a new class of welfare recipients that will be dependent upon the benevolence of the Democratic Party. One can only hope that at least some of these people will realize the trap they’re walking into…fleeing one repressive regime straight into the arms of a political party who only cares about their vote, not their freedom or well being.

Permanent underclass has a formal name, even: Lumpenproletariat.

Engels described with near-100% accuracy what is happeing to the West (he was hardly alone in that during his time, many others did so too); sadly, the description of the dangers of capitalism and cosmopolitanism-from-above is obviously and understandably marred both by Marx' manifesto and what happened when Lenin et al tried implementing Marx ideas using force.

Also, migration is almost never a net boon in any way for the recipient nation. It takes some serious abuse of math and statistics to make itlook like it is.

Furthermore, the more alien the people coming is and are, the more conflict-areas of all kinds multiply, almost geometrically so.

To quote your former president: "Look at Sweden".

Our net cost for migration is more than 2% of our annual GDP. I say again, net cost.

Our libertarians, such as they are, also bleat the lie that if you get rid of welfare and taxation, then migration will suddenly start to function as promised. As per usual, their rethoric and analysis is of the underpants-gnome variety.

Just wait until a moslem-majority local city council votes for banning dogs from being walked 500 yards or closer to any moslem residence, store, business or mosque. Yup, that's a real example. Allow moslems in your nation = your nation becomes a moslem nation.

Or just look at South Africa and Rhodesia before and after. For a positive example, look at India.

Race/ethnicity/kultur/call it what you like matters, and it matters far more than any political system. It is one of the foundational pillars of society (the other is family).

PS: Anyone reacting to this by reflexively thinking it smacks of racism- ask yourself this: who made you associate like that? Where and when and by whom where you taught to think like that? Is it to your benefit? Is it true?

Not Amerika is already progressing steadily. I see many of the foreign habits on the road everyday.
