On immigration
From El camino real:
In recent years I have soured on Pat Buchanan, primarily because of his frequently irresponsible rhetoric on the subject of immigration. (Please note that my objection pertains specifically to his rhetoric, not his position on immigration reform which is entirely legitimate.)
A country's first obligation is to its citizens and a country can only handle so many people.

Followed up by Katolik Shinja:
Like Mr. Culbreath, I, too, "have soured on Pat Buchanan, primarily because of his frequently irresponsible rhetoric on the subject of immigration." America does not face the same crisis of immigration as does Europe, whose immigrants come largely from Islamic lands. Our immigrants are mostly from Christian and Western Latin America. Hispanics are the only demographic group that is not attempting to abort, contracept, or sterilize itself out of existence in the US. Their presence will make us a better country.
¡Bueno!

The strong family values of Asians are also benefical to America. Mr. Buchanan singled out Korean-Americans, 70% of whom are Christian, in his 1992 speech:

"And there were the brave people of Koreatown who took the worst of the LA riots, but still live the family values we treasure, and who still believe deeply in the American dream."
