Illegal immigrants can vote?

Immigrants when/if they can vote, or the next generation tend to vote democrat. It also encourages people to vote democrat because it creates fear about throwing out illegals who have settled into the country.

There are certainly scenarios where illegals immigrants have voted illegally and they support democrats. That's is why there has been debate about voter IDs. Some cities are actually allowing illegals to vote in local elections, which means they're shaping communities in such a way only citizens should but its ignored because they support left wing causes.

Estimates say there are about 20 million illegals in the country, that's more people than most countries even have. Democrats don't much care though because its their base and want them treated the same as citizens. Most illegals are latin and helps them with that demo. Basically the way we handle immigration is antithetical to every other developed country.

As far as I know a lot of things in the US are antithetical to what happens in other developed countries. Democracy for example.

The elitist smug upperclass right wing (that includes the majority of both democrats and republicans) like to pin groups in the working class against each other. Any conflict within the working class helps the elite, because as long as the working class is busy fighting itself, it won't fight the elite. And then the 1 % can get even more power and money.

Even if there is truth to that, we do have a population that fights among itself for various different reasons.

Politicians certainly pour fuel on that fire, but they don't single handedly create the sentiment among citizens as much as they exploit it. In my eyes, democrats have become a wildly different party in recent years because they simply pander to certain demographics, while republicans are finding success simply leaning into the economy which does speak to the working class. Touching on the topic, flooding the country with countless illegals arguably is not a good way to help the working class.

There is always going to be fighting amongst citizens who want left or right leaning governments. Especially when you have the media and colleges pushing an agenda for virtually one side. Any who, this fighting among the population isn't unique to the US and its not just because of politicians.

I'll say this and its on topic, I respect Angela Merkel. She must realize her stance on immigration was terrible and hurt your country.

If they're using it to gain votes, doesn't that mean it's what the voters want?

As far as I know political parties in the US changed a lot over the course of history. Republicans weren't always far right. In fact they'd probably referred to as liberal leftist by some members of the party today.

No, the statement is that they bring in illegal immigrants who will then vote for them.

That's smart, get votes from people who cannot vote.

Most right wing capitalists are very pro illegal immigration. Why do you think it's an issue that's never actually been fully dealt with? The more illegal immigrants there are the more cheap labour they can get and therefore the higher their profits are.

Such a scam issue. Trump uses it as a dog whistle because he knows it riles up a select portion of gullible white people who are terrified of immigrants that just want to clean hotels, pick fruit, and nanny some fat, spoiled American kids (oh noez!)

The fact of the matter is most of these folkes are actually quite conservative, they are quite religious usually, anti-abortion, and pro-business/pro-entrepreneurship. They're probably more conservative than the average American. If Republicans would stop demonizing them every 10 seconds they might actually get some of those votes.

In the long run they will have to, the "Trump crowd" is mostly old, bitter people who will be dead in 10-15 years. They can't rely on that base forever, the younger demographics of the US are much more diverse and they will have to eventually accept that the politics of scapegoating groups like Latinos won't work.

A lot of it is bunk too, in the 17 years since 9/11, how many terrorists have come from the Southern border? Zero. If you wanted to be a gang-banger criminal, which is a better place, Mexico, where you can do as you please, or the US where a person of color can get their ass thrown in jail just for looking sideways at a cop and has a for-profit prison industry based on throwing tons of people into jail?

Trump has also flip-flopped on a lot of bull shit, he was pro-choice and even backed Bill Clinton's assault weapons ban in the 90s and 2000s ... good luck getting him to admit to that today. Also I'm sure he had his clothing line made in China just by accident too.

"immigrants that just want to clean hotels, pick fruit, and nanny some fat, spoiled American kids"

>Some of them work for cartels. Others have criminal records.

"They can't rely on that base forever, the younger demographics of the US are much more diverse and they will have to eventually accept that the politics of scapegoating groups like Latinos won't work"

>You're not mixing up Latinos and illegal immigrants, I hope. They're different you know.

"which is a better place, Mexico, where you can do as you please, or the US"

>The latter with more money flowing around.

"Trump has also flip-flopped on a lot of bull shit, he was pro-choice and even backed Bill Clinton's assault weapons ban in the 90s and 2000s"

>We're not living in the 90s or early 2000s anymore. Neither is Trump.



The way I see it we can either A. deal with a never ending swarm of immigrants and asylum seekers that are trying to escape political corruption and violence or B. we can end the war on drugs that causes said corruption and violence. We burned down someone else's house and then we complain about them asking us for a place to stay. Either way this whole immigration debate is just a dog whistle for closet racists. The Democrats have literally never campaigned for open borders or illegal immigration but trump telling the same lie over and over again is enough to get a lot of republican running to the polls

For some reason I do not feel particularly hurt. I'd vote for her if I could be arsed to vote.

Fun fact: Every single other mainstream party would've done the exact same. Germany is a socially minded country and right wing extremists do not make up 50% of the country.

Maybe they're over compensating from the 1930s-40s? Now that was extreme!

Merkel stepped down because people are leaning to the right. Just don't go too far, I don't wanna see any goose stepping.

Where's the source for these mighty claims?  

Despite many studies looking into illegal voters, every study has shown that it's a minuscule number.
