I see, so objecting to our basic identity being altered via illegal immigration is not holding ourselves up to a higher standard? As usual, you wouldn't really answer the question because you know it is hypocricy at its best. The USA should have every right to retain its natural identity just as much as any other country does. It has nothing to do with higher standards but pure stupidity and hypocricy by those who think the way that you do.

So let me see if I get this right:

Our basic identity as a country is "white protestant"?
You don't want that ruined by all the Hispanics coming?

No, you got it wrong as usual.

Religion has nothing to do with it. Whites belong to many different religions But the fact is that racially whites are the majority. It is about coming illegally and most illegals are Hispanics/Latinos/Mexicans. Which will change the demographics if allowed to continue unabated. That is what I like about "legal" immigration with diversity quotas.

The Protestant faith of this country is what is most important here. Not the color of the founding fathers skin. It just so happened that white Europe is where the Protestant Reformation took hold (Calvin and Luther 1500's) before making its way to America.

It was that faith that landed on the North American soil. Many Americans are completely ignorant of those who founded this nation.

As a matter of fact America's leading institutions were founded by the Protestant churches: Harvard, Yale and Princeton, as examples were originally founded by Presbyterians!

In-fact these Calvinists (Presbyterians within the Protestant faith) played a significant role in America's founding principals and ideals.

CALVINISM IN AMERICA

Let me ask you, are the Hispanics of the protestant faith and culture? The color of their skin is irrelevant to me, unless that is important to you.

We have an immigration system in place to keep track of who is granted citizenship in this country. It is in place to keep some semblance of balance regarding jobs and population control.

When people migrate legally here they have to prove financial viability. They have to have job skills that are in short supply in this nation. They also need to have enough English literacy to function in our society.

If you want to argue primarily for the Hispanic illegals then you may want to communicate to them that standing in the streets chanting that they are here to "take back" their country probably doesn't do much to further their agenda. And they need a history lesson. But when you open your eyes and realize that there are illegals here from many countries it kind of seems that those only standing up for the Hispanics may be the racists.

This country has been predominately white since it's inception. Anyone that has a problem with that may want to study the demographics and pick the country that best suits them.

As that White Protestant heritage fades and becomes diluted?...

Shades of Westboro Baptist Church...

Wait, I've heard this theme before...

First off, let's see the whole quote:

Well, there ya go. You could've saved a ton of time and just said that from the beginning.
Racist comments? Someone brought up Whitey not having enough world representation. hmmm...

The discussion is about America's founding heritage and culture. It was founded as a white and protestant nation. It's a fact. Research it. It is what it is. Do you dislike that part of American heritage and culture?
If you research it a bit more, you'll also find there was definitely a White-Brown thing happening in the culture that formed the heritage. That's a fact. Research it. It's a part of American heritage and culture I really dislike.

More importantly, the discussion is about a Texas senator outraged about Spanish testimony. Please stay on topic.
