    A 'Second Great Wave' of immigration?

    If Congress passes immigration reform legislation this year, it will dramatically add to what the Census Bureau is calling the “Second Great Wave” of immigration in U.S. history.

    Opponents of the legislation have seized on the Census Bureau’s analysis of migration patterns to warn of an explosion of foreign-born population over the next few decades.

    “Once again, the country is approaching a percentage of foreign-born not seen since the late 1800s and early 1900s,” the Census Bureau wrote on its blog this week. “Will this proportion continue to increase, perhaps exceeding the high of nearly 15 percent achieved in both 1890 and 1910?”

    The agency estimates that 40 million people living in the United States in 2010 were born elsewhere, approximately 12.9 percent of the population. That is the highest population of immigrants, percentage-wise, since the 1920s, according to the Census Bureau.

    Opponents of granting citizenship to 11 million illegal immigrants and expanding legal immigration flows have pounced on the study.

    “After 40 years of large-scale immigration, rising joblessness, failing schools and a growing welfare state, would not the sensible, conservative thing to do be to slow down for a bit, allow wages to rise, assimilation to occur, and to help those struggling here today?” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said Thursday, when he delivered the keynote address to commemorate the Tea Party Patriots’ fifth anniversary.

    An aide to Sessions estimated the number of foreign-born people living in the United States has now reached 45 million.

    Sessions’s office estimates that number could swell by at least 30 million over the next decade if Congress passes the Senate immigration bill.

    The legislation would expedite permanent legal status for an estimated 5 million people waiting for green cards and increase the number of green cards issued each year from 1 million to 1.5 million.

    The Center for Immigration Studies, which opposes the Senate-passed reform legislation, estimates it would allow the foreign-born population to reach 17 percent or 65.2 billion by 2033.

    The foreign-born population was less than 20 million or 7.9 percent of the total population in 1990, according to the Census Bureau.

    The bureau says the first “great wave” of immigration took place between 1880 and 1930, when the foreign-born population represented between 12 and 15 percent of the total population.

    The immigrant population reached a low in 1970 when 9.6 million people — 4.7 percent of the total population — residing in the United States were born in another country.

    Soccer, Mexico & the US Empire’s breakup

    June 29, 2011

    By Michael

    Former Republican presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan writes about how the multi-national US Empire is coming apart along ethnic lines, thanks in large part to the unchecked influx of millions of Latin American immigrants. As events surrounding a recent soccer match in Los Angeles show, much of the Southwest is already ethnically and culturally Mexican.

    And the people living there for the most part have no desire and no incentive to assimilate into the lifestyle of the US Anglo minority. As their numbers continue to explode, Mexicans living in California will expect for to impose their politics, their language, their religion, etc. on the State.

    And the next generation of them, which will include many millions who were born in the States and therefore are entitled to vote, hold office and receive government benefits, will not sit idly by as a disenfranchised majoritythey will expect and insist on running the show.

    And the US Federal Government will be unable to deal harshly with these Mexican nationalists because Hispanics will make up a huge percentage of the population in many states, tying the hands of the politicians. This could be how the US Empire dies – if the dollar hasn’t been completely destroyed by that time.

    We have within our country 12-20 million illegal aliens, with Mexico the primary source, and millions of others who may be U.S. citizens but are not truly Americans. As one fan told Plaschke, “I was born in Mexico, and that is where my heart will always be.”

    Perhaps he should go back there, and let someone take his place who wants to become an American.

    By 2050, according to Census figures, thanks to illegals crossing over and legalized mass immigration, the number of Hispanics in the U.S.A. will rise from today’s 50 million to 135 million.

    Say goodbye to Los Angeles. Say goodbye to California.

    The South is also being subjected to the same demographic tidal wave. Immigrant populations (predominately Latin American) are displacing native Southerners in many of our States. Unless the trend is reversed, Dixie could eventually go the way of California.
