Our nation’s leaders have made it clear that immigration reform is going to be a top priority in the 113th Congress.
NPG welcomes that commitment. It is long overdue.
However, in launching this important legislative effort and carrying it forward to completion, we must ensure that America’s long-term interests – not the agendas of dozens of special interest groups – drive our national debate.
In setting policy and priorities for the decades ahead, it is vital that any new immigration rules work to reduce our already soaring population levels.
Current U.S. Census Bureau projections show that America can expect to add 65 million people to our present population of 314 million in the next 20 years. By 2050, we’ll potentially have to accommodate 439 million people. America can’t sustain such huge numbers.
If, as a nation, we are truly committed to leaving our children and grandchildren a decent quality of life, it will fall to our President, Senators, and Congressmen to make responsible decisions on immigration reform in the months ahead. Failure to do so will result in future economic, social, and environmental disaster. The bottom line is that when all is said and done, our entire nation – not any single group – must come out as the winner!
Let the debate begin!
Call your Senators and Congressman.
Demand responsible immigration reform!
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?
