Wow. Another Nazi apologist to add to my ignore list.

Jews are just as "white" as everybody else. I'm part Sephardic, yet am pale as a ghost.

Jews, at just 2% of the population, have been a hugely disproportionate force in nearly all aspects of American society. This is mostly a good thing of course. We all benefit from Jewish achievements in science and in many other areas. Jewish influence in politics and media though is a mixed bag. Not that I think they are up to no good. It's just that they have, on average, somewhat different interests from non-Jews. What is "good for the Jews" is not always good for others.

I do not have a problem with eliminating national origin as a basis for immigration. Do you?
I don't have a problem with that specifically. But I do think the overall impact of the Hart-Celler Act has been very negative. America has imported an entirely new underclass of poor Hispanics since 1965 which now outnumbers poor blacks.

Thank you for your support. I am who I am today because of these groups in this order, Mexican Indian descendants, Whites and finally Jewish Americans, whose influence has had the most impact because it was very instructive and effective. That is why the photo in the OP does not concern me.

Why would anyone salivate about a race or demographic being replaced? Why would anyone brag about the replacement of skin color? Racist, much? Don't tell me that this is just about replacing the baddies within that group either because most white Americans are not that way. Liberals are such hypocrites!

Being careful about language is the mark of a racist? Who knew?

You are equating Hart-celler with other fundamental issues that exist simultaneously and trying to draw a cause/effect relationship. Our porous borders and need for unskilled labor is not the result of Hart-Celler. Nor should those circumstances justify racial profiling in terms of immigration.

There will indeed be winners and losers in globalization and intermarriage. As with all changes. But will the sum total be a net positive or net negative?

I do not know if your stats on "poor Hispanics" are accurate, but I will assume they are. Poor, uneducated people tend to take jobs no one else is willing to do. That is not entirely bad for an economy. I do know that legal immigrants are both younger and better educated than home grown Americans these days. And very entrepreneurial.

The debate should be why we are not courting well educated, young immigrants as an economic lifeblood when low population growth is sapping our economic growth? For our economy to grow we need employable humans.

And who exactly will be doing the menial labor should we effectively halt illegal immigration? There is plenty of evidence that Americans do not want these jobs and many go unfilled at present and did so even when the unemployment rate was much higher.

This entire issue is being handled in such a way as to prevent any effort to address our real problems.
Meanwhile the world looks on and those with much to offer must decide if the USA is going to remain the place to be.

Who do you think were doing those jobs for a fair wage before millions of cheap illegals flooded our border? It's nonsense that there are jobs that Americans won't do for a fair wage even unskilled ones. Legal immigrants are more educated than Americans? Where are you getting that nonsense? We don't need any more population growth from immigration at this time. We have a shortage of jobs and resources. If and when we need more immigrants we will increase our quotas and visas for them at that time. Illegal immigration is unacceptable. They cost us $113 billion a year and all they do is fatten the wallets of their greedy employers. I suggest you educate yourself on this issue.
