Current Events & Trends: Nation-states struggle with immigration

An interesting article from about immigration. This follows this post about Valentine's Day. This follows this post about the papacy. For a free magazine subscription or to get the books recommended for free click HERE! or call 1-888-886- 8632.
As in Paris, the perpetrators are usually Muslim immigrants. The scale and the intensity of the rioting has caused some observers to question the common belief that Sweden has treated immigrants much better than most other European countries.
Turkey has also experienced major riots in a number of cities, although immigration is not necessarily a major causal factor. Apparently there is widespread dissatisfaction with the government in power and the prime minister in particular. It's hard to be both a Western-style democracy and an Islamist state at the same time. The two don't fit together well.
Most nations have their share of disaffected immigrants, including the United States. The drophead of a London Times article by BBC Radio 4 presenter Justin Webb states, “Immigration will change the US in ways its politicians are only just beginning to grasp” (June 4). The article is titled, “America's Future Is Latino, Asian and Liberal.” Future North American demographics are slated to lean much more toward Central and South America.
The Anglo-Saxon vote is no longer expected to be a deciding factor in future U.S. presidential elections. Immigrants who have or will obtain citizenship and voting rights may well impact future elections in a big way. If and when the funds run out and the government can no longer print money legally (see “In danger: the status of the U.S. dollar”), we could possibly see massive rioting in major American cities on a scale and intensity that will shock the world and perhaps bring the nation to its knees.
