“The evils of immigration are not temporary. The direct descendants of people who fought for and founded the Republic, and gave us a rich heritage of democratic institutions, are being displaced by _________”
You fill in the blank any way you wish. Is it plausible that immigration only occurs because different looking people want to come here and change “our” institutions? Is it plausible that liberty, democracy and tolerance are among the reasons people want to come here?
