If you believe the Main Stream Media, we are living under a white nationalist dictatorship that is brutalizing immigrants and purging the land from foreigners. Meanwhile, in the real world, restrictions on immigration have almost completely collapsed and Americans are being systematically dispossessed from their own country. 

America’s foreign-born population has reached its highest level in over 100 years, driven by immigrants from Latin America, according to new Census Bureau data.

What’s more, the Pew Research Center has found that most Latinos feel the percentage of foreigners in the United States is just about right, though 14 percent said America needs more.

The analysis from Pew showed that the last 50 years have seen the biggest surge in immigration into the U.S. since before the Civil War. There are currently 44-45 million foreign-born in the U.S., 14 percent of the total population.

One of the most significant findings is that Latinos in the United States have dramatically changed their views about the number of immigrants in the country. In the past, even Latinos thought there were too many immigrants. Now, even though the number has dramatically increased, "they feel good with the population."

A quarter of Latinos in the U.S. say there are too many immigrants living in the country, while about half (48 percent) say there are the right amount and 14 percent say there are too few, according to the survey, conducted between July and September 2018. These numbers represent a dramatic shift from 2002 – the first time the Center asked this question – when 49 percent of Latinos said there were too many immigrants in the country, 37 percent said there were the right amount and 8 percent said there were too few. 

The likely explanation is the shift in incentives that has taken place over the last decade. Even during George W. Bush's term, it was implied that immigrants had a certain obligation to become "American" in the sense of identifying as American, speaking English, and putting their fellow citizens over foreigners. However, in these #Woke days, this expectation has faded. Indeed, even asking people to speak English is denounced as "white nationalist" by the media. Latinos also receive money and sympathy for identifying with La Raza rather than the United States, the latter being a racist, evil country anyway. So it's not surprising more Latinos favor more immigration of their kinsmen.

It may undermine their wages and put pressure on social services, but it increases the bargaining power of their tribe. "Citizenism" is collapsing. America today is merely a battleground for different warring tribes. Unfortunately, the only people that don't realize what is happening are white Americans themselves.
