a century ago, Democrats looked at the country and realized they were
never going to convince Americans to agree with them. But they noticed
that people in most other countries of the world already agreed with
them. The solution was obvious.
So in 1965 -- 50 years ago this week -- Sen. Ted Kennedy passed an
immigration law that has brought 59 million foreigners (Ed:non European) to our shores,
who happen to vote 8-2 for the Democrats.
Democrats haven't won any arguments; they changed the voters. If
anything, the Democrats have stopped bothering to appeal to Americans.

political strategists Ruy Teixeira and John Judis have been gloating
for 20 years about how post-1965 immigration would soon produce a
country where Republicans could not win an election, anywhere. Then
Democrats could do whatever they want. They called the new emerging
majority "George McGovern's Revenge."
Republicans should be sweeping the country, but they aren't, because of
Kennedy's immigration law. Without post-1965 immigrants bloc-voting for
the Democrats, Obama never would have been elected president, and
Romney would have won a bigger landslide against him in 2012 than
Reagan did against Carter in 1980.
This isn't a guess; it's a provable fact. Obama beat Romney by less
than 5 million votes in a presidential election in which about 125
million votes were cast. More than 30 million of Obama's votes came
from people who arrived under Teddy Kennedy's immigration law; fewer
than 10 million of Romney's did.

Kennedy and other Democrats swore up and down that the new immigration
law would not change the country's demographics, but post-1965-act
immigrants are nothing like the people who already lived here.
As Pew Research cheerfully reports, previous immigrants were "almost
entirely" European. But since Kennedy's immigration act, a majority of
immigrants have been from Latin America. One-quarter are from Asia.
Only 12 percent of post-1965-act immigrants have been from Europe --
and they're probably Muslims.
