Here’s the message you need to get, AS. Once the Democrats get these illegals in this country permanently, get them on public assistance to make them dependent, and make them citizens, or at least voters (citizenship is not required to vote for under the Democrat system), the Democrats will control the government.
Every principle that you claim to have (abortions, gun control, limited taxation, less regulation) will be down the drain because the Democrats will enact their agenda and establish a socialist state. They will probably use climate change and “fairness” as the reasons for it. You will won’t be able to do anything about it because you will be out voted. You and all of your “conservative” buddies will be museum pieces. And when the Democrats have total control, they will burn down your museum.
Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua are all examples of what happens when the far left takes charge. The modern Democrat Party is not the party of Kennedy, Humphrey, Carter or even Bill Clinton any more. Nancy Pelosi is becoming part of their right wing. AOC and her radical friends are the future of the Democrat Party.
Just look at Southern California. It used to be a bastion of conservatism. Now it’s under total Democrat control with a big sanctuary cities, Los Angeles and San Diego, at the center of it. How did it happen? Massive immigration fueled by a vote buying welfare state.
I am not against immigration. There is truth to what you say about the need for more young people. BUT it needs to be an orderly process where we can get handle upon who and how many people come here. We don’t need criminals and terrorists. We don’t need need millions of people with no skills who will spend their lives dependent upon government. We need productive people who will work and contribute to our country. That’s who came here at the beginning of the last century, and that’s why the system worked then. The bad apples were rooted out and deported.
