How is that non-western? I thought it was pretty obvious that South America and Central America are western and it wasn't debatable that any of the countries in continental North America- Mexico, Canada and U.S were western.

Especially when you compare Latin America vs. Eastern Europe
Latin America has millions of white people of mostly Western descent, Spanish, British, Irish, Portuguese, Italians and Germans etcetera. Their religion is Western, predominantly Catholic. Their political systems are all developed from western political systems. I don't know how you could include U.S as western and not include Brazil, Argentina, Mexico or Chile. These countries are dominated by western thought as well as all the other countries. Their cities are also almost 100% derived from Western architecture too.

Eastern Europeans while white, have regions like Russia which is literally half of Eastern Europe were all the major parties are Anti-Western. Many of them don't follow a western religion (Orthodoxy), and many of them don't hold western values. If you look at gay marriage, literally only western countries or countries with significant population of western people like SA (which is arguably western because of their female representation and stances on different rights) allow gay marriage. Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Uruguay all make that list. How is Latin American culture different than Western culture seeing as actual natives have the same influence as in Canada or Australia in much of Latin America. Eastern Europe has zero countries that have legalized gay marriage.

I'm against the majority of immigration regardless of where they came.
