As to Tim Alberta’s alternative to walls and immigration enforcement, the piece tails off into a vague call for Hispanic outreach. Otherwise, as he says, “this is a math problem for the Republican Party”. But the math isn’t that difficult: among the many mordant details in Lionel Shriver’s new novel The Mandibles, set in the America of the day after tomorrow, is that you now “Press 2 for English”. That’s where the math leads. Can GOP outreach persuade 51 per cent of Hispanics to vote Republican? If not, then the more Hispanic the country gets the less Republican it will be. The GOP can no more outrun mass low-skilled immigration than can Lee and Pam – until you accept that this is the result of government policy, and resolve to change that policy.
