Thank you for raising an important issue, and being honest about it!
I too am very concerned with the lack of thought given by governments about the whole issue of mass immigration and international cultural movements. I have no sympathy with Le Pen and his ilk. He is a dangerous man, but people have voted for him for reasons.
It seems that very little governmental thought is put into quantifying the effects that large numbers of immigrants will have on the social structure of the community that they move into. Often it irreversibly alters the fabric of that community to the point those who have lived there for generations no longer feel at home themselves. This stokes the fires of resentment that the lesson of history proves will eventually burn fiercely.
In France it is the Algerian and Muslim culture, in Italy the African, in the UK the East Indian, in Canada at least on the West Coast the Chinese, who now make up 50% of the population and own 80% of the businesses in one of its larger cities. Inner city schools are made up of 80% Orientals and 20% indigenous peoples. This breeds resentment and poor schooling as many of these children have only basic English. This of course is just a sample of what is happening to every country around the world which is viewed as economically prosperous.
Of course these are all wonderful cultures, each with their own rich tapestry of art, music and color *but* this is not the point.
People need to ask themselves how Algeria would feel if five million Frenchmen moved into Algeria in 20 years, Or India if 12 million East Indians moved into its country, or China if seven million Canadians moved there in fifteen years. Would they let them in, or might they view them a danger to the social balance of their communities?
Though ethically many Western nations may deserve what they are getting due to the savage historical attachment that they have had with many of the countries that now haunt its borders, this again is *not* the point. A nations first loyalty should be to its indigenous population.
When an incoming nation alters the fabric of that nation, and does so often purely for economic betterment, then it *will* have long term and usually negative effects for the indigenous population.
Yesterday on BBC Radio 4, a French-Algerian was interviewed about Le Pen's victory. He said that he felt that peaceful Parisian days were threatened. When asked whether he would now move back to Algeria, he replied "No", adding "I cannot earn good money there, I will move to Canada, or the USA". This does not take care of the immigration problem, it passes it on to others to handle.
I was amused a couple of years ago when a CO gave me his notion as to why huge immigrant movements were taking place the past decade. He felt that it was "Jehovah’s way of allowing us to preach to them", sort of like the Mountain and Mohammed type of scenario. Given the large numbers of these immigrants becoming JW’s in their new Western homes, it makes a lot more sense than most Western Governments immigration policies….lol
One thing is certain, this is not a problem that will go away and it *needs* to be discussed honestly and openly.
