"MULTICULTURAL NATION" IS AN OXYMORON - LIKE "GIANT SHRIMP"
A nation is a group of people having a common history, heritage, and culture. The word "nation" has its root in the Latin for birth. The United States has stayed united in the past because newcomers assimilated and adopted our culture of individual work and ability as the road to achievement. Today, all too many are dependents. All too many retain their own languages. All too many come from nations that lean to socialism.
The Census Bureau cites four races: white, black, Asian/P.I. and Alaskan native/American Indian. Circa 1970, the government added an artificial ethnic group called Hispanic and/or Latino whose members are not a race, but can identify with any of the above races (mostly white). Members claim a relation to any of the 20-or-so Spanish speaking countries. . . the Bureau does not check anyone's claim.
A new proposal to further divide us into ethnic, tribal groups would make another category of Middle Eastern or North Africans called MENA.
Now, there seems to be a spontaneous "brown race" which probably doesn't include a good tan, sorry. And then there is a novelty called "People of Color" which should be a unifying issue for us all. The reason for these "racial" claims seems to be "social justice" or supposed discrimination that keeps them from their full achievement. This has led to a broadening of AFFIRMATIVE ACTION to include Hispanics and eventually, as things continue, all but whites.
WHY WON'T CONGRESS MAKE IMMIGRATION LAWS LIKE THOSE OF MEXICO? Mexico's laws aim to preserve the integrity of the nation. Congress makes ours to please the elites, the cheap labor lobbies, and the globalist nation-haters. In Mexico, an illegal immigrant faces prison of 4 to 10 years. The Mexican government can refuse immigrants if they would upset the equilibrium of national demographics. (Only 1% are immigrants: 13% in U.S./with offspring over 25%) In Mexico, all immigrants must carry a federal photo ID. More of their strict laws are available on line.
MORAL COMMON SENSE FROM A 13TH CENTURY DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH Saint Thomas Aquinas, one of the greatest Catholic Church philosophers, believed that immigration must serve the common good, that it cannot destroy or overwhelm a nation. He sets as a first condition that the immigrant should want to integrate fully. . . which some nations deemed took two or three generations (Aristotle). "...if foreigners were allowed to meddle with the affairs of a nation as soon as they settled down in its midst, many dangers might occur, since the foreigner not yet having the common good firmly at heart might attempt something to the hurt of the people." (ReturntoOrder.org, "What does Saint Thomas Say About Immigration?")
9 MILLION "HISPANICS" 50 YEARS AGO 60 MILLION "HISPANICS" TODAY AMERICANS FEEL LIKE STRANGERS - CULTURE OVERWHELMED
"HISPANIC" IS A HOMEMADE CONTRIVANCE Before 1970, there were no "Hispanics" in the U.S. "The Hispanic identity is a bureaucratic creation: the term appeared four decades ago as a box to tick on federal government forms," per The Economist magazine of 8-3-13. So in 1970, there were 9 million "Hispanics" and now 60 million.
The National Council of La Raza (with no paid members but millions from the liberal Ford Foundation and even our government) created "Hispanics/Latinos"in the late 1960s to expand its Mexican base to include 21 different Spanish speaking countries.
The Pew Hispanic Center (5/12) found only 24% identify themselves by the artificial "Hispanic" or "Latino" - labels that don't exist outside of the U.S. 51% identify by country of origin (e.g. Mexican American). 21% self-identify as Americans.
AFFIRMATIVE ACTION FOR AN ARTIFICIAL ETHNIC GROUP THAT IS A "PROTECTED CLASS" In 1976, Congress passed Public Law 94-311 that mandates data be gathered on a specific "ethnic" group so that Americans of Spanish descent don't suffer from racial, social, economic and political discrimination and to "implement an affirmative action program .. for the employment of personnel of Spanish origin or descent."
Thus, did our government mandate discrimination against other Americans for an artificial newly-created ethnic group of voluntary newcomers. HISPANICS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN THE REST OF US as they grew from 5.8 million in 1960 to 60 million in 2019. (Some are wealthy immigrants from Spain or Peru.)
2/3 of millennials in the Harvard Institute of Politics poll, 2014, oppose minority preferences. They know that in American "all men are created equal" and that means no one has rights superior to anyone else. This is backed by the equal protection clause in the 14th Amendment and the Due Process clause of the 5th Amendment.
When liberals speak of "minorities" and "diversity", they divide us into rights by group membership rather than our individual right for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness ... which has made America strong.
THINK OF ALL THOSE COMING OVER THE BORDER AS ASYLUM-SEEKERS. If our government allows them to remain, they and their children will be given the affirmative action that pushes others aside in jobs and education.
CALIFORNIA "IS AN IMMIGRATION DISASTER" per long-time Senator Dianne Feinstein In 1995 testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, she added "I implore you to understand that I think California is an emergency situation" and begged for welfare denial and more border security. Cecilia Munoz of the National Council of La Raza dissented. Feinstein later told the Los Angeles Times that growth was California's No. 1 problem.
1. California K-12 went from best in the 1960s to near bottom in the nation today with Mexican "Hispanics" 54% and whites (non-"Hispanic") 24% of students. Poor and/or English learners are each awarded $300 yearly more money and attention.
2. Californian freshmen accepted to the U. of C. in 2017 were 33% Latino, 24% white, 5% African American, with a balance largely Asian. CAs 70,000 resident total is only 2/3 of 106,000 admitted. Thus, white California students make up roughly 16,800 or 16% of total freshmen in the system created by "white male despicables."
3. "Hispanic/Latino" population at 39 million outpaced white alone at 38 million.
4. CA cost of illegals equals $25 billion yearly, which is $2,370 per U.S. citizen household. www.fairus.org
Starting around 1970, Mexicans have replaced African Americans in the hotel/hospitality business and whites/blacks in construction.
