    Where is the attempt to suppress white votes? Where is the attempt to limit immigration from european countries? Where is the constant denigration of white people?

      From non-European countries?

      How successful has it been given that for more than twenty years now immigration into the U.S. has been dominated by non-European countries?

      In fact U.S. legal immigration has been dominated for more than twenty years now by what we would consider third world or emerging economies, and immigration in general has pretty much been dominated by Mexico alone for more than twenty years now.

      For 2102

      Mexico
      China, People’s Republic
      India
      Philippines
      Dominican Republic
      Cuba
      Vietnam
      Colombia
      Korea, South
      Jamaica

      Do you see any European countries listed?

      The U.S. family based immigration system pretty much runs on auto-pilot and for all of the 'anti-immigration' fervor supposed on display by the Republican Party, I've not heard of any proposal by the Republican Party to change the system, other than to substitute some skills based immigration for family based immigration.

      Where is the attempt to limit immigration from european countries?

      You assume that there has been any significant immigration from European countries in the past twenty years to begin with -- there hasn't.

        There's a reason for that aside from US policy though. There is more desire to emigrate if you live in a country where the economic opportunities are fewer. If you live in a developed and relatively free nation already where opportunities are good, there is not much reason for you to want to emigrate. The Europeans and Canadians might not be banging down our doors regardless of what our decisions are around people from other parts of the world.

        •  I Understand That (0+ / 0-)

          And I made no qualitative judgements on where the immigration was coming from, only that it was coming from specific places in the world, and has been coming from those same places for decades now.

          •  OK (0+ / 0-)

            I think it is sort of inevitable though. Any immigration policy is going to end up taking the people who want to come, not the ones who are perfectly happy back at home. Maybe we will be getting a lot of Cypriots and Greeks wanting to come but otherwise things seem pretty stable over there.

            I think icemilkcoffee's point stands though - pointing out the demographic reality from the standpoint of how it is likely to affect electoral politics for the GOP (since virtually their entire base is older white people) is not the same as saying people are happy that white people are dying off.

      •  That has nothing to do with discrimination (0+ / 0-)

        and everything to do with the economic and political problems in the immigrants' home countries.

        Also- you are ignoring the whole history of immigration laws, which have been written to favor people from northern european countries at first, then all europeans generally when we got to the country by country quotas era.  Chinese were excluded for a good 80+ years. It wasn't until 1965 when immigration was actually opened up in a non-racist way.  Maybe you see that as an attack on white people.
