AN OPEN APPEAL TO THE 114TH CONGRESS
MAKE SURE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WIN ON IMMIGRATION!
Studies show that over 80% of our nation’s future population growth will be tied to immigration. That alarming fact underscores why today’s national debate on immigration is so important. With more than 320 million people, America’s population is already too large. Our nation is experiencing major social, economic, and environmental problems that will only get worse if fueled by countless more immigrants.
As members of Negative Population Growth, we join with millions of other Americans who are imploring you to bring a halt to our soaring population numbers. To meet that goal, you must have the courage to say “NO” to all who wish to increase our nation’s immigration numbers. The most positive solution to today’s immigration crisis is for Members of Congress to pass responsible immigration reform legislation. We must strengthen America’s borders, put the brakes on both illegal and legal immigration, and demand strict enforcement of existing immigration laws.
Time is the greatest enemy when it comes to population growth. We cannot accept “reforms” that are nothing more than political payoffs! Putting millions of people on the road to citizenship is simply a recipe for disaster for our great nation.
Please, in casting your vote(s) to set our nation on a new immigration path make sure that the American people — not the special interest groups — win. We owe it to our children, grandchildren, and future generations to leave them a sustainable and livable future — and that is only possible with a less populated country. Thank you.
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?
