Michelle Malkin Blasts Republican Immigration Schemes As GOP Gets Thumped in Virginia Election

Democrats resoundingly took the Virginia House and Senate on November 5, 2019.

This marked the first Democratic trifecta in Virginia since 1993. 

Such results provoked a series of responses from conservative commentators like Michelle Malkin.

On Twitter, she commentedMass illegal alien amnesty + expansive guest worker pipelines + 1 mil green cards annually + unassimilated refugee deluge=electoral disaster & demographic conquest, which Talking Points GOP doesn’t want young nationalists on campus to discuss. #Invasion #SoldOut #OpenBordersInc

 

She followed up by saying “It’s MATH. #OpenBordersInc

Malkin may have a point.

Although Hispanics constitute 8 percent of Virginia’s population, any kind of increase in the Hispanic voter base will tend to benefit Democrats. This was on display in 2018, when 90 percent of districts with foreign populations above the national average went Democratic.

Mass migration poses legitimate public safety and economic issues.

However, one of the biggest threats dealing with mass migration is its electoral impact, which puts the Republican Party in jeopardy in many Sun Belt states like Arizona, Florida, Georgia, and Texas.

For that reason, the GOP will have to focus on immigration restrictionist policies that end birthright citizenship and chain migration, make pathways to citizenship tighter, and emphasize attracting skilled labor.
