Nothing makes me angrier!
We are definitely at a time of cultural change in our nation. Not to many years ago, one did not openly go and support the Socialist Party or anything to do with Neo-Marxism. Yet, the cultural change in our country is going to happen because of border commitment status – losing strength, and what is happening on the Hill regarding the instant status of being a refugee.
The Immigration Act of 1965 was a kind of affirmative action plan to provide remedies for those races or ethnic groups that had been discriminated against in the past. Caucasian immigrants from European nations had been given preference in past years; now it was time to diversify the immigrant population by changing the focus to Third World nations, primarily nations in Latin America and Asia. The goal, as some scholars have slowly come to realize, was to diversify the demographic composition of the American population from majority white to a majority of people of color. There was also some anticipation that those coming from these Third World countries were more likely to need the ministrations of the welfare state and therefore more likely to be captured by the Democratic Party, the party promoting the welfare state. It should be noted here that war and other activities seem to directly occur prior to a rush to allow those to immigrate.
White middle-class Americans in the 1960s and 70s were often referred to as selfish because their principal interests were improving their own lives, educating their own children, and contributing to their own communities.
They showed no inclination to support diversity and the kind of authentic commitment to the new openness that was being advocated by progressive-liberalism. They stood as a constant roadblock to the administrative state, stubbornly resisting higher taxes, increased immigration, and expansion of the welfare state. This is ridiculous to put it mildly! Just read what was said (written), “Middle-class Americans in the 1960s and 70s were often referred to as selfish because their principal interests were improving their own lives, educating their own children, and contributing to their own communities.”
Furthermore,”they showed no inclination to support diversity and stood as a constant roadblock to the administrative state, stubbornly resisting higher taxes, increased immigration, and expansion of the welfare state.”
Please remember or just take a look at the previous articles mention of The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was sound legislation, authorized by the Fourteenth Amendment, Affirmative Action Executive Order in 1965, The Voting Rights Act of 1965, and finally for this period was this ugly, non-forward thinking The Immigration Act of 1965. Here I have mentioned four acts voted on to become law; however, there is one single matter missing from all four, results and what has happened since.
Is there anyone in the blogosphere that can explain why absolutely zero Congressional activity happened from 1952 and 1965 the total of 13 years? In 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (the McCarran-Walter Act) consolidates earlier immigration legislation into one law and eliminates race as a basis of exclusion. However, race continues to be a factor because the quota system remains in place, except for immigrants from the western hemisphere. What race?
The Immigration Act of 1965 gets rid of the nationality quotas but limits annual
immigration from the eastern hemisphere to 170,000, with a limit of 20,000 immigrants per country, and for the first-time caps annual immigration from the western hemisphere at 120,000, without the country limit. The major reason that these two laws have been cited is that the laws are simply directly the same, however, with different people getting the credit. Whereas it was McCarran-Walter during 1952, although the law did not change names, but the common credit went to Kennedy-McCain during 1965.
There is one feature that remains consistent during these ostensible 25-years, the push on the Welfare state and the overwhelming pressure from the Democratic Party to allow anyone over the borders, as well as their push to increase government spending.
