Immigration`s State of Emergency

Patrick J. Buchanan is a brave
person who loves his country. In his latest book,

State of Emergency
he says his country, along
with European ones, is

rapidly ceasing to exist.
Massive unassimilated
immigration is changing the cultural and linguistic face
of America. Hispanics are taking back the lands seized
by the American empire in the 19th century.

Buchanan is correct that no creed
can turn a

Tower Of Babel
into a people. Unassimilated
immigration Balkanizes a country. Americans do not like
the loss of identity that they are experiencing, but
their concerns receive no political attention. The myth
of diversity united by a creed prevails.

Buchanan provides many examples of
the power of race and tribe, powers that are denied
every day in the US and Europe. Highly intelligent
far-seeing leaders, such as Enoch Powell and

Jean Raspail,

by elites


immense public following.

Unassimilated immigration
transforms communities and dissolves connections to our
past. Neighborhoods in which people grew up become

hostile terrain
that they cannot enter. Social
organizations disappear. To revisit one`s high school in
a class reunion becomes like

visiting a foreign country.

America as Pat Buchanan and I knew
it was destroyed by the

Immigration Act of 1965.
This act destroyed the
national origins basis of the American population, the
essential element of the American

“melting pot.”
In those days there were American
communities. Today there are a variety of Asian
communities, Hispanic communities, Muslim communities,
black communities, and white communities.

The US used to be an uncrowded land
where people could breathe
Immigration has increased population
densities and brought pressures on

, the environment, and

water resources.

What can be done? Buchanan agrees
that a

on immigration is necessary until the
huge number already here can be assimilated.

Another remedy is to realize that
there is no such thing as a country without borders. The
idea that a country must have immigration in order to be
in the global economy is absurd. China is in the

global economy
, and China has no immigration.

Neither does Japan.

Many Americans are puzzled why the
Republican Party is so much

more concerned

Israel`s borders

Iraq`s borders
than it is

with America`s borders.
The Republicans are busy at
work trying to establish hegemony over the Middle East
and Central Asia while they permit

Mexico to establish hegemony
over the American

This is an amazing disconnect. How
does a country that is being erased at home have an
empire abroad?
