Party, Ethnicity, Immigration, and Our Politics

The relation between party affiliation and ethnicity depends upon many factors that can change over time. With that qualification borne in mind, the evidence provided below suggests that party affiliation and ethnicity are strongly related. (This result is not new.) Therefore, if immigration favors people of particular ethnicity, this is likely, other things equal, to tilt voting to a favored political party. Open borders will favor Hispanic, Latino and Asian groups. This will favor Democrats and a more socialist and authoritarian government.

Wiki has a “List of Hispanic and Latino Americans” who have ever been in the House of Representatives. There have been 71 Democrats and 19 Republicans. (This count omits 1 who was in the Know-Nothing Party and counts another as a Democrat who switched to Republican for a brief period.) That’s 79 percent Democrat and 21 percent Republican.

Other things equal, open borders to Mexico and regions further south are likely to result in a higher proportion of Democrats among voters and in Congress.

Wiki has a “List of Asian Americans and Pacific Islands Americans” in the House of Representatives. Of the 36 people who have ever been elected to the House with these ethnicities, 29 have been Democrats and 7 have been Republicans. That’s 81 percent Democrat and 19 percent Republican. This sample includes people whose extractions include the Indian sub-continent (including Bangladesh), Japan, China (including Taiwan), Korea, the Philippines, Samoa and Vietnam.
