Memo From Middle America (Formerly Known As Memo From Mexico): Ruben
Navarrette Says The Hispanicization Of The U.S. Is
Inevitable. Do Americans Have Any Say?


From: S. Nunn [
Email]

I read one of your recent opinion columns discussing



Ruben Navarrette
`s assertion that Hispanics will inevitably be
a majority in the US. 
[Email
Navarrette
] I agreed with
much of your critique of his position.

However, please realize that immigration is not a
"left vs. right"
issue.  Are you aware that President Obama has

deported more illegals per month
than George
Bush did?  Are you aware that Republican-leaning,



corporate lobbying groups
such as the US Chamber of Commerce favor
unregulated immigration?
[Vdare.com
note: Yes, we`re





very aware of this.
]


I am a liberal Democrat and I
favor strict immigration controls.  I do not want
the US to become a Hispanic nation.  I favor a
moderate stream of legal immigration, not the deluge of
illegals from Mexico that we have had for the past
thirty years.

Those who

benefit the most
from an
unending influx of cheap labor are business owners, not
the poor.  These same business owners are able to
keep their profits, while placing the costs of the
chaotic influx of immigration on to the public
sector.  Lawmakers from both parties, Republicans and
Democrats, are to blame for the current state of
affairs.

But the
reader is right that both parties are guilty.




Still one of my favorite
stories:




“IN AMERICA, WE have a two-party system,"

a
Republican congressional staffer is supposed to have
told a visiting group of Russian legislators some years
ago. "There is the stupid party. And there is the
evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid
party."


 


He added: "Periodically, the two parties get together and do something
that is



both stupid and evil.
This is called—bipartisanship."
