    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.

      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.
