In an April 2 column for the New York Times, Mexican-born TV personality and political activist Jorge Ramos says the American people cannot stop mass immigration and should open the borders and embrace the flood instead.
“They will keep coming; there is no other solution,” he wrote. “All the other options — walls, detention facilities, family separation policies, forcing asylum seekers to wait in Mexico, expedited repatriations and mass deportations — have failed,” he claimed.
The “United States should start accepting between one and a half and two million authorized immigrants every year,” he argued. This would mean one immigrant for every two Americans born each year.
“The United States is a nation of immigrants,” Ramos continued. And “it’s going to need a lot more migrants to support the nation’s beleaguered economy, replace its growing population of retired workers, and make up for the country’s low birthrate. Our immigration system desperately needs to be updated to face these challenges.”
A flood of immigrants will only sink the nation’s economy, and we can fix the country’s low birthrate by simply having more babies, not encouraging mass immigration. But Ramos wants America fundamentally transformed into a Latino state.
