Mass Immigration Is Driving Democrats To Full Electoral Dominance

    Immigration is a direct threat to your right to own firearms:

    Democrats Winning Nearly 90% of Districts with Large Foreign Populations

    Democrats Winning 90% Congressional Districts with Large Foreign-Born Populations

    Mass legal immigration is driving Democrats towards full electoral dominance, with left-wing politicians winning nearly 90 percent of congressional districts with larger than average foreign-born populations, analysis finds.


    The Atlantic senior editor Ronald Brownstein analyzed Census Bureau statistics for the 2018 midterm elections, finding that the country’s admission of more than a million legal immigrants every year is set to hand over electoral dominance to House and Senate Democrats.


    Among Brownstein’s findings is that nearly 90 percent of House congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average were won by Democrats. This concludes that every congressional district with a foreign-born population exceeding 14 percent had a 90 percent chance of being controlled by Democrats and only a ten percent chance of electing a Republican.

    Likewise, less than one-in-ten House Republicans represent a congressional district that has a foreign-born population larger than 14 percent.

    It is not just congressional districts that are being driven towards Democrats through mass legal immigration. Entire states have been transformed, not only demographically, but electorally by the country’s current legal immigration levels.

    For example, Brownstein finds that Republicans hold about 30 Senate seats in the 20 U.S. states with the smallest foreign-born populations. Meanwhile, Democrats control 32 Senate seats in the 20 U.S. states with the largest share of foreign-born residents.

    Brownstein expects Democrats to largely target the remaining Senate Republicans in states with large foreign-born populations in the 2020 elections.

    “Several of the remaining Republican Senate seats in that grouping (including Colorado, Arizona, Georgia, and perhaps Texas) will be among the top Democratic targets next year,” Brownstein writes.

    Even the New York Times admits that continued legal immigration at its current rate of importing more than 1.2 million residents a year will transform the U.S. towards electoral dominance for Democrats.

    This is most recently evident in Orange County, California — once a Republican stronghold — that has become entirely controlled by Democrats. The dominance of Democrats in Orange County has coincided with the county’s booming foreign-born population.



    ===============



    This is why the Democrats are all for immigration - no matter what the cost. It's why they dump "refugees" into hard red states.

    Seriously - when are you going to wake up?

    Can't speak for the overall case but I know some foreign born now US citizens who vote democrat. Don't always agree with their conclusions but if someone becomes a citizen and a voter and has decades of work experience along with understanding the importance of researching and analyzing effects of what they vote for it's not the worst case. I would take them as a better fellow citizen than those who blindly pull one lever irrelevant of what party they support.

    If someone from India tells me they think the government has some basic duty to healthcare because they have grown up seeing true poverty and suffering I figure they are entitled to their opinion. Said person also lives in Texas and rips on "Dumb Conservatives", and yeah I am not going to claim people who sell off water rights then pray for rain have the best analyzing going for them. Every group has their better and worst examples.

    The "overall case" is pretty clear: Democrats gain power = losing your gun rights. They're making that VERY clear in their latest iteration with numerous efforts around the country and at the Federal level to restrict severely or remove entirely your rights to own firearms.

    You say: "blindly pull one lever" - well how are the immigrants any different? They're coming in - and "blindly pulling one lever" based on Democrat assertions that right wingers are racist maniacs.

    Everybody is entitled to their opinion - but if their opinion is in direct contradiction to the founding premises of this country - well then maybe they should have stayed back where they came from.

    The thing that people don't seem to realize is: if the founding principles of the country are finally buried and declared dead - at that point we've got something else here - we DO NOT have the "United States" - as it has been understood for the last couple of centuries or so. Whatever that new "country" is - is not entirely clear - except for that fact that it appears it will be something where racial and political and economic groups all combine their power to wield influence.

    We USED TO have a melting pot of a sort here - but that melting pot mostly referred to European descended immigrants who came here with at least some commonality of culture , religion, and shared history.

    The new America has none of that.

    And again, for emphasis - because this is a gun site - that puts your right to own firearms DIRECTLY in the crosshairs of the new political establishment. Because as you just pointed out: If somebody from India comes here thinking that the government has some basic duty to restrict firearms ownership - because that is what the government did back home - well that's the way he's likely going to vote. Which means they didn't REALLY come here to be "American" - did they? They came here for some other reasons - likely economic - but they didn't come here and completely throw their past in the trashbin of history - the way immigrants in the past have done.

    Sadly enough, many immigrants would be natural conservatives, especially immigrants from Latin America. Often they come from countries with high levels of religiosity, suspicion of corrupt governments, strong family values, and a sincere belief in the American dream rewarding hard work. R's are shooting themselves in the foot by being hostile to these groups.

    The GOP isn't hostile to immigrants. The GOP is hostile to criminals. Cruz and Rubio are both sons of immigrants, and both ran for PotUS.

    +1 for trying but people like him can't understand the difference, they refuse to even acknowledge there is one.

    GOP is a multi-headed hydra that can't even internally agree on immigration, legal or otherwise. For a lot of legal immigrants, they don't sound particularly encouraging or reassuring, so instead they vote Dem.

    they vote democrat because democrats are socialists and they come here for the handouts. If you ended welfare or significantly regulated it then a lot would choose to not come here. This is a back door way to destroy the republic.

    All elections are about people getting out to the polls and voting and as a society we aren't doing very well. Lack of choice, poor candidates, etc keep plenty of people sitting at home with a (meh) sort of attitude.

    And again...the crime rate among illegals (aside from the original infraction of coming here illegally) is the same or than US citizen crime rates. An Examination of U.S. Immigration Policy and Serious Crime

    Fear mongering just pushes those legal Latino voters into the arms of the Dems.

    I think we should give every illegal 2 mulligans, that way the crime rates will be even lower!!! Am I a Dem now? This logic is fun!

    Cut off their EBT cash.
    Cut off their Section 8.
    Cut off their food stamps.
    Cut off their medicaid.
    Cut off their obamaphone.
    Cut off their tax refunds for not paying taxes.

    The problem will self resolve in less than 1 election cycle

    It won't, because the immigrants with jobs are also scared away by GOP.

    it seems the only one's cutting home are the conservatives. A non-vote for a conservative is a plus vote for the liberal.

    The thing to keep in mind: conservatism, by its very nature, is a tough sell - it's Gods of the Copybook Headings, versus promises of sunshine, lollipops, rainbows and free shit from the Progs.

    if they've left, they probably won't vote for a democrat in the next election. Not definitely, but probably

    The Rs are not being hostile to immigrants.

    I'm an immigrant, no one has ever been hostile to me.

    My parents are immigrants, my brother...my girl from Venezuela. No one is hostile to us. We are not wondering when we will get deported. We are not afraid. BUT ... we came here legally.

    All the Rs are doing is trying to enforce laws and cut benefits to ILLEGALS.

    Let me say that last word one more time. ILLEGALS.

    The problem is the news just make them look like huge POS, and I always got that feeling that Rs dont push back as hard as Ds push. They seem to just sit around and wait for people to actually do some research and figure it out.

    So, the poor immigrants dont do their research, and the news constantly bombards them with negative consequences if an R is elected, and most of the educated immigrants try to be social justice warriors and line up with the Ds, because they want this country to be more like theirs - the country they left to come work here - I wonder why?

    Uh, the crime rate for illegal immigrants is 100%. Excusing the original infraction is silly.

    I'm all for legal immigration, BTW.

    That right there. The Rs are terrible at their public appeal, which creates 80% of the hostility, the other 20% are random dolts like Steve King.

    Explain where he's wrong.

    Take for example, Mexicans. Mexico WILL NOT extradite anyone to the US if the death penalty is in play for a crime committed here by a Mexican national or by a fugitive caught in Mexico. They are hard core Catholic and have strong family values. This is the the R's wheelhouse (supposedly). Why is it hard to believe that?

    Republicans are not hostile to these groups.

    Republicans broadly are failing to make the compelling argument that they once made as to why limited government is so valuable......

    The rapid turn around of the oblunder economy by trump and his repeal of two regulations for every one new one and slashing corporate taxes demonstrates how to create jobs

    We went from no jobs and no wage growth for 8 years of oblunder and several of shrub to an explosion of jobs and increases in wages and record participation rate in jobs not seen since the 1960's plus record low unemployment rates.

    This tranlates into fewer and fewer people on welfare......in other words more people are pulling the cart and fewer people are IN the cart.......that translates into welfare costing less.....

    If republican pols had the prerequisite 2 brain cells to form a synapse they would be running around touting this message.......self sufficiency under republicans or dependency under democrats

    Reagan's morning in america ads are more compelling than ever......

    It must feel good to have a wingman. :)

    If I were left leaning I think I would just sit back and wait. Demographics are destiny and the future belongs to the left. President Bill Clinton was more right wing in 1993 than today's Republican Party.
