    Whenever one party is pro-immigration, the other accuses it of trying to skew the vote. This is so endemic that it is practically a black tie tradition. What gets confusing is when neither party is pro-immigration, but they both accuse each other of skewing the vote.

    White Replacement Theory is extreme racism pure and simple. Carlson might not be a nazi but he's close to being one.

    You do realize that Fox News just won a lawsuit on the basis that no reasonable person would take Tucker Carlson seriously, right?

    It's obvious to anyone with 3 brain cells or more that the border should not be the highest priority. You have a raging epidemic, causing huge economic hardship.

    But I find it interesting, if depressing, to see that US politics is still ,after all these years, all about RACE.

    And even more depressing that people on this forum want to give airtime to these paranoid racial conspiracy theories.

    Oh wait, I was forgetting, you're black, aren't you? ;)

    Many white nationalists get their talking points from him. He's a fountain of racist garbage. He is the douche who believes we need to be talking about race less.

    I don't know much about "white replacement theory," but it does seem rather far-fetched.

    Immigration policies have been influenced by a variety of factors, probably more economic than anything else. US businesses want a steady flow of cheap labor. There's also a lot of political support for bringing in refugees and people seeking asylum, since it falls in line with the idea of "give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses," etc. It's a philosophical position which America has held for quite some time, but it's certainly not any great secret or part of some grandiose conspiracy.

    I don't even think it's a given that immigrants would all vote for one party or another. While it may seem that way at present, it doesn't mean it will be that way in the future.

    This stuff just gets stupider and stupider. I have to figure that Biden and Harris are doing a pretty good job if this idiotic gibberish is all the right can come up with the sling at them.

    There is no existing treaty nor international union that I'm aware of.

    It's a scam to minuplate population demographics to secure votes. It's not the business of foreign individuals to vote in this country anyways and it needs to stay that way.

    Same reason I can't vote in most other countries as a foreigner.

    I just cited a whole laundry list of countries where, in fact, you can.

    Uhh isn’t the white replacement theory the battle cry of the KKK?
    I remember learning about that in SOSE class back in the day

    Such racist paranoia has shaped much of past immigration movements though
    For example Australiastan had a white only policy for a while. Apparently it started to shape what “whiteness” even was. As perceived in society at the time anyway

    Yes, in that they use it, no, in that it's more widespread than that.

    And the sort who promotes this on a highly watched cable "news" network.

    The American Rescue Plan is going to create approximately 7 million jobs. The American Jobs plan would create an additional 2.7 mullion jobs. There are going to then be more jobs available than the current number of American citizens available who are able to fill these nearly 10 million newly created job positions. Please let us agree non-citizen essential workers should have a pathway to citizenship in order to have an adequate supply of workers to improve our nation's infrastructure.

    Not even vast swaths of unharvested food due to a lack of sufficient workforce hasn't budged the issue.
