The always studious Ann Coulter has an amazing column out this
morning on the nation’s immigration issue.
here in Human Events, Ann has spent some time

Here’s the problem. That 54% of the under-30 vote that Romney
got? White as a polar bear.
In fact, it was Obama who won the youth vote — and it wasn’t
because he was “offering free tuition and contraception.” It’s
because the under-thirty vote is “the knife’s edge of a demographic

In Ann’s words: “The youth vote is a snapshot of elections to
come if nothing is done to reverse the deluge of unskilled
immigrants pouring into the country as a result of Ted Kennedy’s
1965 immigration act. Eighty-five percent of legal immigrants since
1968 have come from the Third World. A majority of them are in need
of government assistance.”
It’s a stunning, must read column — and prefigures the
immigration debate that looms ahead.
