This segment is from Ronald Reagan’s 1980 debate with George H.W. Bush for the U.S. presidency. Reagan foolishly called for illegal immigrants to get work permits and for the U.S. to have an open border with Mexico.
It shows that in spite of Reagan’s greatness, he never really ‘got it’ when it came to illegal immigration. He doubled-down on his stupidity in 1986 when he granted a mass amnesty to hordes of Mexican peasant invaders. Gee, that worked out great, didn’t it?
Reagan, including most conservatives, never seemed to realize that illegal immigration from third-world hell-holes like Mexico and El Salvador is bad not just because it violates the sovereignty of the United States and our immigration laws, but mostly because it threatens the dominant racial group and their culture (meaning Whites).
In other words, illegal immigration should always be opposed because to ignore it is to invite a foreign, hostile, and unassimilated people into one’s land. Their presence threatens and competes against the indigenous people and their historic culture (meaning Whites) because humans are tribalistic by nature. It is who we are. It is what we do.
Any nation that adheres to a ‘melting pot’ view of immigration is destined to ruin. Under the false belief of ‘racial equality’ or ‘diversity is our strength,’ it invites conflict, chaos and strife within the nation as one racial or ethnic group competes with other groups for dominance.
This explains why the more racially ‘diverse’ the U.S. becomes, the more racial discord it experiences. How utterly naive we are to imagine that if we permit people from differing racial/ethnic backgrounds, who speak differing languages, who adhere to differing religions, who don’t share the same cultural values, the same morals or worldviews, that we can all somehow get along and their will be no divisions between us!?
The only kind of people who think this is a good idea are either the ignorant and uniformed, the willfully blind, or those whose purpose it is to divide and conquer us from within.
