Do These Guys…

… look like Democrats to you?


There is an old axiom that the more wealth you acquire you tend to become more conservative. The exception to the rule is Hollyweird actors, Warren Buffet and George Soros. But there is a point to asking the question. The question is, did Obama just FUBAR on the EO immigration order? That can’t be of course because that is pandering to the largest alien group right? —

LOS ANGELES — Asian Americans are now the nation’s fastest-growing racial group, overtaking Latinos in recent years as the largest stream of new immigrants arriving annually in the United States.

In an economy that increasingly depends on highly skilled workers, Asian Americans are also the country’s best educated and highest-income racial or ethnic group, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.

In fact, U.S. Asians, who trace their roots to dozens of countries in the Far East, the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, are arguably the most highly educated immigrant group in U.S. history, the study shows. And although there are significant differences among them by country of origin, on the whole they have found remarkable success in their new land.

“These aren’t the poor, tired, huddled masses that Emma Lazarus described in that inscription on the Statue of Liberty,” said Paul Taylor, the research center’s executive vice president.

In fact, the Asian newcomers’ achievements are likely to change the way many Americans think about immigrants, typically as strivers who work hard in the hope that their children and grandchildren will have easier lives and find greater success in this country, Taylor said.



But that ain’t the half of it —

It looks to be the first reversal in the trend since the Depression, and experts say that a declining Mexican birthrate and other factors may make it permanent.

“I think the massive boom in Mexican immigration is over and I don’t think it will ever return to the numbers we saw in the 1990s and 2000s,” said Douglas Massey, a professor of sociology and public affairs at Princeton University and co-director of the Mexican Migration Project, which has been gathering data on the subject for 30 years.

Nearly 1.4 million Mexicans moved from the United States to Mexico between 2005 and 2010, double the number who did so a decade earlier. The number of Mexicans who moved to the United States during that period fell to less than half of the 3 million who came between 1995 and 2000.

The trend could have major political consequences, underscoring the delicate dance by the Republican and Democratic parties as they struggle with immigration policies and court the increasingly important Latino vote.


Double Oooooops!

This seems to be playing out politically like the French generals at the start of WWII. The intel was flawed, hence the decision was flawed, hence long term the outcome will be flawed.

It very well could be that the Hispanic vote is a paper tiger.

    drdog – I remember reading a few years ago that some of the experts expected immigration to reverse itself. As you stated, there is a declining birth rate in Mexico. Plus more and more jobs are expected as the population ages in Mexico. Most Mexicans (not all) are here for the jobs and would rather be back home in Mexico.

    I remember when Mitt said that mexicans are self-deporting. All the MSM had immediate appeplexy. Now that he has proven to be correct, i don’t hear any of them giving him credit (even on Fox).

    “By deregulating the economy and repealing or abolishing market interventionist controls over market activity, all issues concerning trade and migration in the United States — at the same time — would be depoliticized.” – Richard Ebeling

    Sandusky guilty on 45 of the 48 charges….

    This means that jury did little more than take votes and fill out paperwork for the 2 days it spent in deliberations. I understand there was testimony read back to them about McGeogory (?) walking in on Sandusky when he was raping the kid. Otherwise, just the time it takes to read the charge, vote, and fill out the paperwork meant that jury was going through over 2 an hour (assuming they worked for 12 hours each day).

    GOOD… let this be start of putting these creeps on notice that they will be found out and prosecuted.

    Every now and then a jury will come along that shows our system works.

    the Asian population is NOT going to be pegged into the Democrat “Victim!” category. They compete and work aggressively, and resent those who do not.

    This election will come down to the ECONOMY. Romney’s doing fine keeping the focus there.

    He had better re focus and stop talking about dream act etc.
