Dear U.S. Senators and Congressmen:
As Congress debates immigration reform legislation, it is crucial that you do not create a bill that becomes a “population accelerator,” condemning America to a future of skyrocketing population levels and worsening social, economic, and environmental problems.
Right now, you are fashioning a major piece of legislation that will dictate our nation’s immigration policies for decades to come. You will do our citizens a great disservice if you attempt to serve too many special interests, creating a bill full of special exceptions, waivers, and loopholes. Those “loose ends” will only lead to more immigration problems.
We demand that – rather than writing one massive bill which increases current immigration levels and brings millions of additional people into our nation – Congress instead focus on realistic goals to solve this crisis: better securing our nation’s borders, stronger enforcement of existing immigration laws, and reducing our nation’s population size.
Please accept your responsibility to work in the best interests of future generations as you frame America’s immigration policies.
Concerned Members of Negative Population Growth
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?
