The passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 opened immigration to all the peoples of the world. I have argued that this was a watershed victory marking Jewish immigrants’ rise to power as an intellectual, media, financial and political elite in the U.S."The Amnesty/ Immigration Surge And Senator Schumer’s War Against 'White Anglo-Saxons.'" By Kevin MacDonald, VDARE.com, 1/31/14 (links omitted).
Nevertheless, with the 20/20 hindsight of history, there is no question that the “common people” fearing change in the 1920s were absolutely right to want to restrict the tide of immigration.
But their actions proved to be too little, too late. There was already a critical mass of soon-to-be elite Americans who were hostile to the traditional people and culture of America, and who subsequently have used their power to dispossess them.
[U.S.] Senator [Chuck] Schumer is a prime example.
Thus the struggle between populist movements rooted in the middle- and lower-class White America and a hostile elite is ongoing. But the forces against these populist movements have been greatly aided by the 1965 Immigration Act, which has resulted in increasing the non-White population of America by around 68 million[.]
This increase in the non-White population has had a dramatically negative impact on the political power of White America—which pleases Schumer greatly.
