"White working class Americans" haven't been represented by either party in quite sometime, and when they were, it was by democrats. It was the democrats who sold out white workers decades ago to steal the minority vote from the republicans. Of course, it worked for them as they still backed unions, which were what the working class whites were primarily made of. However, free trade/outsourcing plus right-to-work has all but destroyed unions as an option for most Americans, and with it came a large demographic of working whites with no representation by either party. Remember, MLK was a republican. There was a reason for this. That is why nothing is being done as to the invasion from the south. Republicans like the slave-for-scraps southerns for laborers as the democrats like them for votes. It's one of those issues like free trade, the FED, and interventionism that will never be addressed as long as the 2 parties monopolize control.

Funny how when one talks of trade, national borders are imaginary. When one talks of immigration, national borders are imaginary. But when one talks of expansionism and imperialism, national borders become very real.
