A June 13 CNSNews.com column by Ralph Hostetter serves up an ethnic group to blame for America's immigration woes, and for once, it's not Hispanics:
America's cultural and ethnic balance was established over a 230-year period. Its Mother Country was England, with a spiritual history of Christianity for at least a millennium.
And then came the 1965 Immigration Act, described as "infamous" by some and a "disaster" by others. Take your choice. One thing is certain. It is causing untold damage to America's heritage and cultural base.
The Act abolished the national origin quota system and replaced it with a system which gave 60 percent of the newly established quota -- 170,000 new openings -- to Asians, who bring a different culture to America.
Taking the year 2000 as typical, a total of 888,788 persons were naturalized. Of those, 121,273 came from Europe and the Americas and nearly three times that number, 331,136, came from some 44 Asian countries, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Only 11,739 new citizens were naturalized from America's Mother Country, England, in 2000, a mere 1.3 percent, and 11,365 Canadians were naturalized.
The Immigration Act of 1965 has corrupted the entire U.S. immigration system. Taking advantage of the family reunification provision, Asian cultures measure a nearly three-to-one ratio with respect to European cultures immigrating to the United States.
Hostetter's moral: We need to import more white European Christians who are willing to, in his words, "preserve the 230 years of America's culture, heritage and traditions." 'Cuz those damn Asians aren't gonna do it.
