Recent Gallup poll reveals great numbers of potential immigrants to the United States
Over 165 million adults from a variety of nations name the United States as the country they would most like to migrate to, according to a recent Gallup poll. With a population already surpassing 310 million, the United States simply cannot absorb the millions of immigrants we are currently receiving. Rather, our government must reduce the number of immigrants allowed to enter our country each year to not more than 200,000.
Studies show overpopulation in the United States has a much more serious effect on the environment than it does in other nations because we are such a consumer-oriented society. Statistics indicate that immigrant families are larger than traditional American families and that immigrant women living in the United States typically have more children after migrating to the U.S. than they would have had they remained in their home country.
In order to protect the United States from the continued destruction of our environment, natural resources, and overall quality of life, we simply must slow, halt, and eventually reverse our population growth in order to achieve a smaller, truly sustainable population. Immigration is responsible for the majority of our population growth. Reducing immigration rates to not more than 200,000 a year is the first important step in achieving a smaller U.S. population.
