Mass Immigration and the Squeezing of the American Middle and Working Class

Michael Antonâ€™s The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return, which was published in the second half of 2020, is a book about the stark choice the United States faced in the (then) impending presidential election and â€“ one may add â€“ which the country continues to face. But The Stakes is also a critical analysis of what the author calls the modern-day Americaâ€™s woke-globalist â€œregimeâ€ and â€œruling class.â€ Although the book is not mainly or exclusively about immigration, the issue is nevertheless important to Antonâ€™s narrative.
The author â€“ a national security official in the Trump administration, a lecturer and research fellow at Hillsdale College, and a senior fellow at the Claremont Institute â€“ espouses a clearly â€œnationalist-populistâ€ brand of conservatism. Thus, he considers increasing economic inequality in this country a major problem which will, if left unchecked, ultimately turn the U.S. into a banana republic where a small oligarchy of hyper-rich plutocrats rule over a mass of poor and dependent subjects. https://www.immigrationreform.com/2021/02/23/book-review-michael-anton-ruling-class-immigrationreform-com/
