"I'm not a centrist because I think it's important to compromise with people with different political views."

Maybe you aren't, but there are others who are. I have heard it stated in exactly those terms: that if you're not equidistant from the extremes, wherever the extremes happen to be this month, you're being unreasonable and can be dismissed.

"On immigration I do believe that it's necessary to compromise somewhat from my preferred stance, but that's not me being a centrist, that's me being an extremist who acknowledges that I'm not actually going to get what I want until the Overton window shifts such that completely open borders stops being seen as extreme."

And yet every time you (we, actually, because that's my position too) compromise, the Overton window shifts further away from that goal, because the racists don't compromise and never will.
