The fact of the matter is that uncontrolled immigration is at cross-purposes with just about every single piece of the Democratic Party platform, and just about everything that liberals hold near and dear.
Liberals say that they care about working people. Uncontrolled immigration depresses wages, undermines unions, encourages employers to flout regulations for worker health and safety, and creates a new class of indentured servitude.
Liberals say that they care about the environment. Overpopulation is at the heart of every environmental problem, from deforestation to resource depletion to climate change. Almost all of the population growth in the US since 1970 has come from immigration. What's more, many immigrants come from cultures where it's OK to pollute and waste resources.
Liberals say that they care about women's rights. Almost all immigrants come from cultures where women are at best only good for cooking and making babies and at worst are livestock. They bring with them barbaric practices like female circumcision, child marriage, and honor killings.
Liberals say that they care about the rights of gays. Almost all immigrants come from cultures where homosexuality is at best cause for scorn and ostracism and at worst a capital offense. They seek to import these beliefs.
Liberals say that they care about animal rights. Almost all immigrants come from cultures where cruelty to animals is at best ignored and at worst celebrated as part of those cultures. They seek to import these cruel acts.
Liberals say that they care about poor people. How do we expect to reduce poverty when we continue to import the world's poor en masse?
Liberals say that they care about black people. Uncontrolled immigration has forced black people out of entire regions of our country and undercut their labor.
Liberals say that they are pro-peace. Diversity taken to the extreme leads to conflict, cf. Palestine, Northern Ireland, Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sudan, and Syria.
Liberals say that they care about education. Almost all immigrants come from cultures where education is held in low regard.
I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
