A sudden influx of millions of immigrants with an entirely different culture, religion and language is a good way to destroy a country and diluting the original essence of the nation and it’s people. With time, immigrants marry locals and a few decades later the original culture, character, tradition and willingness to fight for the nation and its sovereignty is lost, giving way to the New World Order, a world without nations. Immigration must be strictly controlled so that they do not pose a a threat or a liability to the country. What we have seen in the last decade is a purposeful invasion with a clear aim of destroying a nation by the evil globalists.
