Arguing against immigration to "preserve the standing culture" seems particularly perverse in the case of Britain. Do certain individuals forget that the English are one of the best documented cases where an ethnic group got formed by a large number of migrant waves whose cultural habits had often been diametrically opposed to each other?

Not to mention how many places to which they and their descendants have "immigrated" over the years.

Plus almost all nations were originally unifications of disparate smaller groups to begin with.

Darkmoon Card: Elementals

At 4am, five armed men broke into a guy's house in Houston and immediately shot his dog. He responded by opening fire on the assailants injuring four of them before he was killed. His wife allegedly tried to get another gun to help, but was also killed in the process. The armed thugs then went to the media to cry that some of them were injured in the process and defended their plainclothes no-knock dawn raid because someone in the neighborhood said the residents were drug dealers. All they found was a small amount of weed, and a small amount of 'white powder' of thus-far unknown composition.

Oh, and then they went on TV and threatened everyone speaking out.

Sizable thread, but well worth reading.
