I think it is clear that modern Western immigrants vote for the Left party who panders to them; but that is not the *primary* reason for uncontrolled and open-ended mass immigration.

The prime reason for mass immigration is psychopathological (mental illness): from a mixture of a small-but-powerful minority pursuing deliberate (purposive, destructive) evil – in a context of a mass of irrational, magical, confused non-thinking (a mass-media-addicted society which has ‘lost its marbles’ and cannot any longer perceive the blatantly obvious).

Ok, on reading and rereading that, I think I understand you, Bruce. If I am correct, you not saying that that is the reason immigrants themselves are coming. It is the pathological guilt issues of a segment of the population.

I am a moderate on immigration. Honestly, I think the Lord is bringing them here. And while current voting patterns are not good, I am optimistic for many of these immigrant groups. Not that I am happy to see my own nation and culture dwindle away and commit suicide.

Or it could be for this reason.

See also here. The whole article is worth reading if you are not familiar with the data, but for this discussion just skip down to the section titled “A hidden motive for heavy immigration?”

Zen, I think you’re saying that mass immigration is simply filling a void.

I’m afraid I agree.

re: filling a void. See the abortion data. Compare the number of births that have been avoided/eliminated/terminated since 1969 and the number of illegal immigrants since then. “Nature abhors a vacuum.”

‘Scuse the pun, but it is so fitting.

“Honestly, I think the Lord is bringing them here.”

Ah, but why? See 3 Nephi 20:14-16:

“14 And the Father hath commanded me that I should give unto you this land, for your inheritance.

“15 And I say unto you, that if the Gentiles do not repent after the blessing which they shall receive, after they have scattered my people—

“16 Then shall ye, who are a remnant of the house of Jacob, go forth among them; and ye shall be in the midst of them who shall be many; and ye shall be among them as a lion among the beasts of the forest, and as a young lion among the flocks of sheep, who, if he goeth through both treadeth down and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.”

Sounds like something less than a complete blessing to the nation.

@MC – Yes – I wanted someone else to say it, but yes.

Open-ended, uncontrolled mass immigration may well be serving God’s purposes – but in the sense that God punishes us by allowing us to have what we ask for.

But chastisement will do us no good whatsoever if we regard the punishment as a reward!

Leftists love mass immigration, are its architects, implementers and defenders; and the more radical and destructive the Leftist – the more they love it, celebrate it, lie about it – and punish those who do not love, lie-about and celebrate it.

They are pretending (and enforcing the pretence) that our punishment is actually a reward: *don’t be like them*!

So speaking of repentance at the national level… this is interesting.
