American Citizenship Should be Priceless, Today it’s Available for Just $465
The majority of Americans are clear on the issue of immigration – they are against amnesty for illegal immigrants. Yet, in pushing through a new version of the DREAM Act, President Obama has nullified existing immigration laws and paved the way for millions of illegal immigrants to attain citizenship.
Tens of thousands of individuals recently converged on federal offices nationwide with their $465 application fee. This overwhelming response is just the beginning – an estimated 1.76 million illegal residents can benefit from this so-called “temporary amnesty.”
There are no background checks for applicants, and no plans to begin them. There are no safeguards to detect, defer, or punish those who may fraudulently apply. Under the presidential directive, this massive Department of Homeland Security (DHS) operation will simply rubber stamp the vast majority of applications. With the rewards of legal work status, permission to stay in the U.S. indefinitely, and eventual citizenship, the potential for fraud is enormous.
What we are witnessing today is the total disregard of present immigration laws. We are effectively providing immunity for all who ignore our policies, leaving no consequences for entering or remaining in our country illegally. This action has huge social, economic, and environmental consequences for our nation.
The single largest source of growth for U.S. population is immigration. Our numbers currently stand at a staggering 314 million people, a level which is already unsustainable. Providing amnesty for illegal immigrants will only accelerate the growth of our population – which is projected to reach 438 million by 2050.
We are at a critical period in our history – soaring debt, national and state budgets that cannot accommodate basic public services, overcrowded schools and hospitals, congested roadways, depleted natural resources, vanishing green space, pollution, and environmental destruction. Now is the time to take action that ensures future generations can enjoy the America we leave them. We must protect their quality of life!
Help us bring a halt to this travesty. Protect the value of American citizenship. Call your Senators and Congressman at 202-224-3121 and demand that they immediately cut off funding for this new DREAM Act, which will only deliver a nightmare.
World population, now over 7.3 billion, is predicted to rise to 9 billion by 2050, an increase of almost two billion, or 23%, in the short space of only 34 years from now.In the highly unlikely event that per capita greenhouse gas emissions could possibly be decreased by an equal percentage in such a short space of time (a blink of an eye) the total amount of worldwide emission would remain the same!
From this simple illustration it would appear that without drastically reducing the size of world population, there is no solution to the problem.None at all.So then why do our world leaders pretend that there is one?What is to be gained by pretending rather than by proposing a solution that would solve the problem – a reduction in the size of world population to not more than 1- 2 billion?
