Genocide doesn't necessarily mean immediate destruction of a nation. Rather, is a coordinated plan of different actions aimed at destruction of essential foundations of life of national groups, the object being disintegration of culture, language, national feelings-Raphael Lemkin, inventor of term genocide, via Genocide Watch

Ongoing today in the US and Europe:

"What is Genocide?" by Gregory H. Stanton, President, Genocide Watch, 2002
 
"The crime of genocide is defined in international law in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide....
 

Raphael Lemkin Defines Genocide 
........
Raphael Lemkin in his masterpiece “Axis Rule in Occupied Europe” (1943) invented the term “genocide,”by combining “genos” (race, people) and “cide” (to kill).
.......
Lemkin defined genocide as follows:Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.”  
.........

When Lemkin proposed a treaty against genocide to the United Nations in 1945, he defined it as follows:
.......
“The crime of genocide should be recognized therein as a conspiracy to exterminate national, religious or racial groups. The overt acts of such a conspiracy may consist of attacks against life, liberty or property of members of such groups merely because of their affiliation with such groups. The formulation of the crime may be as follows: 

“Whoever, while participating in a conspiracy to destroy a national, racial or religious group, undertakes an attack against life, liberty or property of members of such groups is guilty of the crime of genocide.”"

Comment: To stop ongoing genocide of America and Americans, the US political class must agree to close our borders, which they'll never do. They've worked for decades to radically change the population and culture of the US. And you're a racist xenophobe if you don't like it. Wall St. Journal wants to hurry things up:

In 1984, the Wall St. Journal called for open US borders:

7/3/1984, "In Praise of Huddled Masses," Wall St. Journal Editorial 

"If Washington still wants to "do something" about immigration, we propose a five-word constitutional amendment: There shall be open borders."...


================= 

Only one person stood up for us: 

"A nation without borders is not a nation." Donald J. Trump 

8/16/15, "Immigration Reform That Will Make America Great Again," Donald J. Trump

"The three core principles of Donald J. Trump's immigration plan"
 
"When politicians talk about “immigration reform” they mean: amnesty, cheap labor and open borders. The Schumer-Rubio immigration bill was nothing more than a giveaway to the corporate patrons who run both parties.

Real immigration reform puts the needs of working people first-not wealthy globetrotting donors. We are the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of our own. That must change. Here are the three core principles of real immigration reform:

1. A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border.
2. A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.
3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation. Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans."...
