Republican David Stringer warned that immigration will have a negative impact on white kids during a speech in Arizona on Monday, reported the Phoenix New Times.
While speaking at the Yavapai County Republican Men’s Forum, he said immigration is an “existential threat” to America.
He told the group that immigration will impact the voting base in the future because “there aren’t enough white kids to go around.”
“Sixty percent of public school children in the state of Arizona today are minorities,” Stringer said. “That complicates racial integration because there aren’t enough white kids to go around. And when you look at that 60 percent number for public school students, just carry that forward 10 or 15 years. It’s going to change the demographic voting base of this state.”
Democratic candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction, David Schapira, found the video and posted it on Twitter. The video has since been taken down from Stringer’s Facebook page.
He said immigration will change the face of the country, and that’s what President Donald Trump is working against.
“Immigration is politically destabilizing. President Trump has talked about this. Immigration today represents an existential threat to the United States,” Stringer said. “If we don’t do something about immigration very, very soon, the demographics of our country will be irrevocably changed and we will be a very different country. It will not be the country you were born into.”
An AZ legislator made these overtly racist comments about our students. It’s time to remove xenophobic radicals from elected office this November! We deserve leaders who understand we’re a nation of immigrants who bring a diversity of experiences & ideas. https://t.co/P5I9QpUHDI pic.twitter.com/NSrJS2WZA3

Trump’s presidency is backfiring as the public grows more and more opposed to his views: report
Watching clips from recent rallies in red states, it is obvious that President Donald Trump continues to be wildly popular among his hardcore far-right base. But that base is by no means representative of the United States on the whole. And journalist David A. Graham, in a report for The Atlantic, explains that not only is Trump failing to expand his base — he is, more and more, out of touch with public opinion.
“Recent polling shows that Donald Trump has managed to reshape American attitudes to a remarkable extent on a trio of his key issues: race, immigration and trade,” Graham observes. “There’s just one catch: the public is turning against Trump’s views.”
George Conway erupts on Trump lackeys who are smearing Scaramucci: ‘These people work for a rapist!’
Several anonymous Trump officials told the Washington Examiner this week that former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci regularly abused staff members in the 11 short days in which he was employed by the president.
George Conway, the husband of Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, lashed out on Tuesday at the Trump officials who anonymously attacked Scaramucci and accused them of overlooking President Donald Trump's own abusive behavior.
‘Absolutely ludicrous’: Canadian election officials tell green groups that ads urging rescue of planet earth could be illegal
"We would have to bury the scientific consensus around climate change when we should be ramping up our activities."
As environmentalists in the U.S. and around the world are urgently pressuring political leaders to make the existential threat of the climate crisis their top priority, Canadian election officials warned the nation's green groups that running advertisements that so much as acknowledge the reality of the planetary emergency could be illegal.
