Amnesty, being promoted now by certain Republicans out of loyalty to coethnics and slavish servitude to the business community, would be the death of the country. It would formalize the already unbearable demographic erasure of America’s historical peoples. It would further bloat the welfare state, burden our schools, fully render our tattered linguistic and cultural unity, and add a leftist bloc to our political life that has turned California–the land that gave us Reagan–into one of the most reliably liberal and also dysfunctional states in the union.
The arguments against amnesty are familiar. What is surprising is how the wind is out of the sails of opponents. It is being treated as inevitable in an economy with 7-8% unemployment. Does anyone really think what America’s economy now needs is citizenship for low wage, low skill foreign workers? Does anyone think this policy is popular with the majority of Americans?
The new America that emerges post-amnesty in ten years or so, perhaps less, is simply not the same nation. Whites will be forever a minority. English will become coequal with Spanish and other languages, as it is in places like Miami, Los Angeles, Houston, and New York. The Republican Party, if it exists, will have no electoral success other than regionally. The nation’s ranks of welfare cases and fatherless children will be bigger than ever. Its educational attainments lower. Most important, the thread of connection to our limited government origins in the Original Colonies and their people will be cut off forever. There will simply be no voice of that view in public life. And if such a heretical view tries to be heard, it will be squelched more aggressively than ever before. At least Obama aims to destroy and reinvent the nation. Conservatives who believe against all evidence that Mexican illegal immigrants are “Natural Republicans,” “entrepreneurial,” or “only opposed to Republicans because of ill feelings about amnesty” are more willfully blind than those Germans who defended their nation’s crimes from the gallows with the cry, “If only the Fuhrer knew!”
