Encourages more State Legislatures to Take the Lead on Fighting the War Against Illegal Immigration
Alexandria, VA (May 27, 2011)—Negative Population Growth (NPG) President Don Mann has highly praised the U.S. Supreme Court’s action in Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting which upheld Arizona’s law that allows the state to suspend the licenses of businesses for hiring workers without confirming their legal presence by using the federal E-Verify program.
Mann hailed the decision as a major step forward in the battle to finally enforce federal immigration laws which have all too often been pushed aside based on political correctness and caught up in open-ended legal arguments related to the definition of “discrimination.” He noted, “The E-Verify program works. It is designed to protect employers from hiring illegals and to ensure American workers do not lose the opportunity to get a job because a person with false documentation takes it instead.”
In his statement Mann said, “If we are truly going to pull the plug on the enticing lure of jobs that brings countless thousands of illegal aliens across our borders annually, we need everybody to be on the same page: business leaders, states and the federal government. A high court decision that helps to strengthen enforcement of the E-Verify program can only move us closer to that goal.”
He added, “For decades, NPG has held that we will only create havoc throughout the country if all 50 states decide to go their own way to write immigration laws. But that is not what’s happening here. All the state legislatures are doing in getting involved in the immigration issue is to pick up where the federal government has failed. We should all cheer the action of courageous legislators when it comes to protecting their citizens from having to bear the huge social, economic and environmental costs that are the result of federal lawmakers constantly caving in to the demands of the open-border lobby.”
NPG noted that Colorado, Mississippi, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia recently enacted laws similar to the one decided in Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting.
Mann concluded, “The bottom line here is that for far too long, our elected leaders in Washington, D.C. have found it politically expedient to not strengthen our borders or pass long-overdue legislation that will finally address critical immigration issues. In the long term we are going to have to pay a huge price in skyrocketing population numbers that we simply can’t afford. If the states and courts have to take up the slack to finally pass measures or issue rulings that can better get our immigration problem under control, then so be it.”
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?
