Once America assumes the demographics of California, the Republican Party will be unstoppable.
Most countries in the world have irrelevant numbers of “immigrants.”
In the Americas, for example, only Canada, the United States and the British West Indies have significant non-native populations.
In Mexico, immigrants account for 0.6% of the population, and that generally negligible level prevails all the way down through Latin America until you hit a blip of 1.4% with Chile and 3.8% in Argentina.
There’s an isolated exception in Belize, which, like the English Caribbean, has historical patterns of internal migration within the British Commonwealth — such as one sees, for example, in the number of New Zealand-born residents of Australia.
But profound sweeping demographic transformation through immigration is a phenomenon only of the western world in the modern era, and even there America leads the way.
Over 20% of all the immigrants on the planet are in the U.S. The country’s foreign-born population has doubled in the last two decades to 40 million — officially.
Which is the equivalent of Washington taking a decision to admit every single living Canadian, and throwing in the population of New Zealand as a bonus. Thank goodness they didn’t do that, eh? (Whoops.)
Otherwise, America would have been subject to some hideous, freakish cultural transformation in which there would be hockey franchises in Florida, and Canadian banks on every street corner in New York trumpeting their obnoxious jingoistic slogans (“TD: America’s neighborhood bank”), and creepy little pop stars with weird foreign names like Justin and Carly Rae doing the jobs America’s teen heartthrobs won’t do.
What a vile alien nightmare that would be to wake up in.
