What 7 Billion People Means for Immigration

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Today, the birth of a baby jolts world population to a record breaking 7 billion people. Yet this comes as no surprise given global population trends. We, as a world, are reproducing at alarming rates. To put it in perspective: we reached 1 billion people around the turn of the 19th century; conquered our next billion 220 years later during the roaring 1920s; 3 billion appeared only 40 years later in the 1960s; we then doubled in size to 6 billion people on October 12, 1999; just twelve short years later, we have grown by yet another billion.

Where does the United States fit into this expanding puzzle? And what does this have to do with immigration? Historically, when a place becomes overcrowded and opportunities dwindled, people relocate. However, as we inhabit and develop the world, immigration can no longer solve our overpopulation problems. While the numbers of people are growing, the Earth and her resources are not.

The United States, with all her space, has provided ample opportunities for people to immigrate in search of new opportunities. However, we have a capacity and we are fast approaching it if we are not already there. The U.S. government allows more than a million people to come here legally every year, a far more generous number than any other country, not to mention incomparably larger than our emigration figures. Though global population is increasing, we can no longer be that outlet for other countries’ population woes. We have a national responsibility to protect the land we have inherited.

The rate at which world population is increasing is not sustainable. Neither is the rate at which the U.S. is growing due largely to immigration, both legal and not. As the world is growing, we can no longer afford to take in more people than our capacity allows. The results lead inevitably to increased dependence on foreign oil, larger carbon footprints, and decreased farmable land to produce food. As the rest of the world faces these same problems, the United States can still play a constructive role by assisting other nations to develop their resources – both human and natural – and develop strategies to bring population growth under control. But, even as we help other nations, we need to make sure we protect our national interests – and in this increasingly populated world, it starts at our borders.

    Not one of you people have mentioned the wages sent home to support the families left behind or the fact that
    These so-called “anchor Babies” are also citizens of the parents home country, while the do-gooders are crying and wailing about separating families, We do it every day to families in the USA when some one committs and is sentenced to prison for a crime. Do you believe in capitolism? The wages earned in one person’s employment
    are spent on products produced by other persons work and the money keeps circulating about seven times
    before the government get it all, like a slot machine. However, if bilions and billions of those wages are sent out of the country???????. It will probably surprise you all to know that last year (2010) India was the largest recipient of money from the USA, 70,000,000,000, thats right 70 billions. and mexico was much smaller with
    only 22 Billions. Of course, the jobs for the indian people were for mostly higher skilled, higher paid work. even
    so this is like a cancer eating away at our country. By the way, I’m a retired Immigration officer.

      The laws are on the books. Just enforce them. Arrest/fine the companies that are hiring the illegals. When we started to enforce the laws in 2005 or so.. there was an outcry from our companies and corps. they couldn’t survive without the slave labor. So our elected officials cow-towed once again and enforcement was pulled back. You can’t have it both ways people.

    It is as if all the politicians are rigged running for presidency. The canidates can all turn 360 degrees on any issue if they like, without any opposition. Not only is this world in trouble, but we certainly are. I would almost rather see the Chinese, Russians or Indians flood this country than the self proclaimed “The Race.” I will be dead in another 40 something years anyway, but will worry for my daughter who is new in this world.

    When did get to this? Our elected only look at their agenda. They are backing big business that want cheap labor. The farmers in Alabama are complaining that they are losing their field workers. Some working 14 hours a day and they have the audacity to say Americans are too lazy to pick produce! No American in their right mind would be put up with abusing our labor laws. We got rid of slave labor in 1865! All these farmers should be in jail!

      Pie, the politicians aren’t spineless they are getting re-election money from big business that want the endless supply of cheap (slave) labor. It is all for the agenda….it’s just not for ours!

      Those of us who believe in migrating to the USA legally have lost the battle. New Mexico has relinquished it’s sovereignty . We are a sanctuary state fully supported by our state legislators . The Illegals and their large extended families arrive daily and it has become the USA’s job to to take care of them.. Feed them, cloth them, care for them and educate them. Funny thing after Arizona tried to pass their anti-immigration law the next week the parking lot at the Mexican Consulate was full and more streaming in everyday. The first thing they wanted was food stamps for their anchor baby(s). Imagine that – they wanted food stamps tax paying Americans paid their taxes for this social program (before we lost our jobs) but illegals freely demanded by these illegals. Special classes and new ways to educate the children of these illegals now have to be devised for them so they can to learn English language basics but that is just temporary. Tomorrow the entire school system will be required to be taught in Spanish so the children of the 11-30 million illegals won’t have to learn English at all. I rarely hear an English sentence spoken in public places in New Mexico now. Then it’s just a matter of time before our politicians in their never ending quest for reelection,, power and greed sells us totally out and succumbs to the pro amnesty open borders groups and the illegal immigrants can live happily ever after. By then the illegals – now citizens of the USA – will be so numerous they can make the USA into a vision of Mexico. We can add the Day of the Dead and of course the Mexican Independence holiday Cinco de Mayo to our federal holidays. So face it native born Americans we are a dying breed. Soon any job in America will go to illegals because they work for 1/2 wages and all other jobs will be outsourced to India or China. We could migrate south to Mexico – but wait we would be illegal immigrants there and thrown into jail and it is against the Mexican LAW in Mexico to cross their borders illegally…….

    what is unemployment in AMERICA?

    AS MUCH AS A SECRET AS THE REAL NUMBER OF ILLEGALS (40 MILLION) THAT ARE IN OUR OPEN AND UNDEFENDED BORDERS!

    *

    IN THE LA RAZA-OCCUPIED STATE KNOWN AS MEXIFORNIA, UNEMPLOYMENT IS 15% TO 30% IN SOME COUNTIES.
    THERE ARE ONLY EIGHT STATES WITH A POPULATION GREATER THAN LOS ANGELES COUNTY WHERE NEARLY HALF OF ALL JOBS ARE HELD BY ILLEGALS USING STOLEN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS. THIS SAME COUNTY PUTS OUT $600 MILLION PER YEAR IN WELFARE TO ILLEGALS! THIS SAME COUNTY IS CALCULATED TO HAVE A TAX-FREE MEXICAN UNDERGROUND ECONOMY IN EXCESS OF $2 BILLION!
    YOU REALLY WANT TO EXPAND LA RAZA SUPREMACY?
    OH, AND UNEMPLOYMENT IN MEXICO IS BELOW…… 6%….!
    THREE OF THE MAJOR CULPRITS OF THE LA RAZA OCCUPATION ARE ALSO THREE OF THE MOST CORRUPT POLITICIANS IN HISTORY, LA RAZA ENDORSED ADVOCATES FOR OPEN BORDERS BARBARA BOXER, DIANNE FEINSTEIN AND NANCY PELOSI.
    PELOSI HAS LONG HIRED ILLEGALS TO WORK HER ST. HELENA, NAPA WINERY.
    FEINSTEIN HAS LONG HIRED ILLEGALS TO WORK HER S.F. HOTEL.
    ALEC BALDWIN’S FRIEND, BOXER WAS REELECTED, AS OBAMA HOPES TO BE, WITH THE VOTES OF LA RAZA!
    YES, ILLEGALS DON’T STOP BREAKING OUR LAWS AND ORDINANCES WITH VOTING!

      Ryan,
      Good post. I am a member of WFIR here in WA and do all I can to reduce the rate of the illegal influx in our state. This is a democrat run state and although both parties are to blame for this mess the democrats push far harder for more immigration…both legal and illegal. To them immigrant mean votes. In our state the democrats pushed for drivers licenses for illegals and got it. I can’t even tell you how drastically the rate of illegals has increased in our state since they were issued licenses. We have special welfare programs for illegals and a special immigrant food stamp program. 260 million paid out last year for health care for illegals and our state does not have a large population. But we are getting there fast. Education for illegals an even larger cost (on our taxpayers backs) and most of us taxpayers wanted nothing to do this massive influx of illegals in the first place.
      And worst of all the bleeding heart liberals retiring from CA., after totally screwing up that state, come here to retire in large numbers and are doing the same thing to our state. To the liberals here there is no difference between legals and illegals…they are all just poor immigrants looking for a better life at our expense.
      Many of the immigrants particularly the illegals want nothing to do with learning our language or assimilating into our culture while keeping their own identities as our fathers, grandfathers, and great grandfathers did. They want to change our culture into their culture. So they cluster into their communities and try to build their own little empires and we allow it? Soon, if drastic action is not taken, we will be just like every other socialist European country whose leaders, almost to the man or woman, are openly admitting what a failure multiculturalism is to their countries.
      Sorry about all of the rambling but I get so pissed off about this. I am all for a reasonable amount of legal immigration if properly overseen.
      I’m not getting into the numbers about how fast this is destroying our America, culturally, economically, and environmentally I can see you have a good handle on the situation. It was refreshing to hear your take on it.

    I speak, read and write Spanish. i am not Hispanic. I do not understand what Obama dowes with immigration or what he wants achieve. He seems to work against the interests of his people and against the wishes of the majority

    Any clear uan unbiased explanation as to why Obama acts this way and what he hopes to achieve?

    Here is what I would ask to the El Presidente Obama
    [For those who do not know Spanish: i question his dedication to illegal immigtion and ask what good he wants to achieve for the USA citizens and if he has any idea how much all this will cost when legalized immigranrts star asking their familes to come to the USA

    Buenos días señor Presidente,
    La verdad es que no entiendo que esta haciendo o que quieres hacer con el apoyo de inmigrantes ilegales. ¿Puede explicarlo? En que manera su ayuda de los ilegales ayudara los hispánicos que viven en los EUA como ciudadanos? Se da cuentas ustedes de cuanta plata se tiene de gastar cuando los inmigrantes ilegales empiezan a ser legal y preguntan que las familias llegan aquí? Si usted acepta millones de mexicanos, porque no aceptar millones de chinos, indianos y indonesios?

    Friends of ALIPAC,

    Each day new reports come in from across the nation that our movement is surging and more incumbents, mostly Democrats, are about to fall on Election Day. Obama’s approval ratings are falling to new lows as he makes highly inappropriate statements to Spanish language audiences asking illegal alien supporters to help him “punish our enemies.”

    YOU MAY FIND IT DEEPLY DISTURBING THE NUMBER OF LA RAZA PARTY MEMBERS NOW IN CONGRESS AS “HISPANIC CAUCUS”, AND IN OBAMA’S ADMINISTRATION AND CABINET.
    EVEN OBAMA’S NOMINEE TO THE COURT, SELF-STYLED “WISE LATINA” SONIA SOTOMAYER WAS NOMINATED BECAUSE OF HER TIES TO LA RAZA AND HER LONG HISTORY OF PANDERING TO CORPORATE INTERESTS. THAT, IN A NUTSHELL IS OBAMA!
    ON THE COURT SOTOMAYER REFERS TO ILLEGALS AS “UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS”, AND VOTED AGAINST E-VERIFY PURSUANT TO OBAMA’S AGENDA OF KEEPING WAGES SO HIS WALL ST PAYMASTERS STAY GENEROUS.
    OBAMA’S SEC. OF LABOR IS A LA RAZA SUPREMACIST HILDA SOLIS. SEE THE BLOG FOR ARTICLES FROM JUDICIAL WATCH, AND MICHELLE MALKIN ON THIS LA RAZA PARTY MEMBER.
    WHEN OBAMA PUT BILL DALEY IN AS CHIEF OF STAFF, IT WAS BECAUSE DALEY IS ALSO AN ADVOCATE FOR OPEN AND UNDEFENDED BORDERS, AND IS CONNECTED TO SOME OF OBAMA’S BIGGEST CRIMINAL BANKSTER DONORS, PARTICULARYLY J.P. MORGAN. JUST AS CHENEY BUSH OPERATED THE OIL INTERESTS, HALLIBURTION AND SAUDIS INTERESTS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, THIS ADMINISTRATION OPERATES FOR BANKSTERS AND LA RAZA!

    After several weeks of strong showings in the media, President Barack Obama appears to have committed political suicide in an interview with Bloomberg focusing on bank bonuses. Just as bad, Obama’s statements praising bailout barons and downplaying their bloated bonuses amount to outright economic insanity.

    “A recent Pew poll indicated that a very large percentage of Americans of Mexican descent regard themselves as Mexicans. Not Mexican-Americans, not American-Mexicans. Just Mexicans.”

    “In Mexico, a recent Zogby poll declared that the vast majority of Mexican citizens hate Americans. [22.2] Mexico is a country saturated with racism, yet in denial, having never endured the social development of a Civil Rights movement like in the US–Blacks are harshly treated while foreign Whites are often seen as the enemy. [22.3] In fact, racism as workplace discrimination can be seen across the US anywhere the illegal alien Latino works–the vast majority of the workforce is usually strictly Latino, excluding Blacks, Whites, Asians, and others.”

    Just over half, 54 percent, say it is important that they change to assimilate into society, yet about two-thirds, 66 percent, say Latinos should maintain their distinct culture.

    WHY WE ARE IN SUCH A MONEY SQUEEZE

    Florida ER doctor’s notes
    Having spent three weeks in a hospital in Naples, Florida with my wife I couldnt help noticing what was going on in the hospital and I had a lot of time to talk to the doctors and nurses about what I had observed. Below is a commentary from an ER Doctor. Do you think this might be a big reason our health care system and our social security system are so screwed up? Do you think this might be a big reason our taxes keep going up? Who do you think these people are going to vote for?

    From a Florida ER doctor:

    “I live and work in a state overrun with illegals. They make more money having kids than we earn working full-time. Today I had a 25-year old with 8 kids – thats right 8; all illegal anchor babies and she had the nicest nails, cell phone, hand bag, clothing, etc. She makes about $1,500 monthly for each; you do the math. I used to say, We are the dumbest nation on earth. Now I must say and sadly admit: WE are the dumbest people on earth (that includes ME) for we elected the idiot idealogues who have passed the bills that allow this. Sorry, but we need a revolution. Vote them all out in 2010. ”

    City Journal Hispanic Family Values?
    Runaway illegitimacy is creating a new U.S. underclass.
    Heather Mac Donald
    Autumn 2006

    Unless the life chances of children raised by single mothers suddenly improve, the explosive growth of the U.S. Hispanic population over the next couple of decades does not bode well for American social stability. Hispanic immigrants bring near–Third World levels of fertility to America, coupled with what were once thought to be First World levels of illegitimacy. (In fact, family breakdown is higher in many Hispanic countries than here.) Nearly half of the children born to Hispanic mothers in the U.S. are born out of wedlock, a proportion that has been increasing rapidly with no signs of slowing down. Given what psychologists and sociologists now know about the much higher likelihood of social pathology among those who grow up in single-mother households, the Hispanic baby boom is certain to produce more juvenile delinquents, more school failure, more welfare use, and more teen pregnancy in the future.

      What our future holds for us scares me to death. Illegals will never stop flowing into our county any way they can and our politicians will never stop them from coming. We have given them their ” right” to be here without one congressional vote being cast. Congress can’t even solve our financial crisis let alone stop illegals from inundating our country and robbing our social programs.

    What gets my goat is the stupid State Department. i heard that recently, the State Department, under the direction of Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has developed a plan to issue “student visas” to Iranian students. Now, I am 72 years old and my memory may be fading a bit, but wasn’t it 19 individuals from Saudi Arabia who were here on “student visas” that committed the worst atrocity on this country since Pearl Harbor on Sept. 11, 2001?

    Likewise with the 200,000+ citizens from Somalia that the State Department allowed to immigrate here under a “refugee resettlement plan”, subsidized no less with taxpayer dollars. Those Somalis have settled in a number of “enclaves” in several states, refusing to assimilate. They go to work and demand all sorts of “cultural” perks that they say are “required under Islamic law” and raise a big stink when their demands aren’t immediately met and end up filing lawsuits to get their way. And what do we get in return for our largesse and magnanimous efforts to ease their lives? They send their young men (and some of their young women as well), back to Somalia, Yemen, Iran, the Hindu Kush region of Pakistan, Sudan and other terrorist sponsoring nations to receive schooling. What kind of schooling, you ask? Well, the only schooling available in those areas, the madrassahs that teach jihad; how to build IED’s, weapons training and terrorist training. WHAT A DEAL!

    I recently watched 30 Rock with Brian Williams, on which they discussed how wealthy Asian women are paying a fortune to come to the US to give birth, so their kids will be US citizens. This is so wrong. We do need to change the Fourteenth Amendment, so that it requires that at least one parent be a US citizen or resident alien.

    My family emigrated legally, through the proper channels. I think it should be the same for all immigrants. We should have a citizenship ID card and all Americans should be required to carry one. Public education, drivers licenses, health care, etcetera should only be granted to legal residents. States have to require proof of legal residence before providing vehicle registration.

    This is only one State……………If this doesn’t open your eyes nothing will !

    From the L. A. Times

    1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working
    for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants
    working without a green card.
    2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
    3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
    4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal ,
    whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
    5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here
    illegally.
    6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in Garages.
    7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens
    from south of the border.
    8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
    9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
    10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.
    (There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County. )

    (All 10 of the above are from the Los Angeles Times)

    Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of
    the United States’ annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New
    York) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

    We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue

    WTF?

      Ana Zuniga-Maus on

      You are absolutely right, we are fools for letting this continue, but until we change and stop the new wave of immigrants coming to America, that have their own agenda and not the best interest of America in mind, until we required voter ID to make sure only real citizens are voting, until we stop double citizenship among immigrants and required absolute loyalty to our country when they become citizens, nothing will change in CA or in America.,

    If we cut off the benefits and stop giving the immigrants citizenship if they are born here and the parents are illegals.
    Stop hiring emigrants before native citizens. We are all paying higher taxes because of them now, including crowding in the schools, the dropout rates are extremely high due to immigrants. There is no benefit to our society. Crime is increased, our streets are unsafe. Some cities are safer than others, those are the ones without high illegal immigrant population.

  14. avatar

    I agree with every word stated above: But for any substantial action to take place addressing world and U.S. overpopulation we must force our political leaders to address the problem. It must come from the bottom up and from the top down. Our environmental organizations should take the lead role. Somehow we also must convince our religious leaders also that our survival depends on their help.

    Yes, 60% of corrupt wealthy Chinese already are in the process or are planning to come to America. Of course after that happens it’s anchor babies away and the whole extended family mass migrates. America is soon becoming an extension of corrupt foreign counties. We need to draft some laws like may other countries have that ban foreign land ownership in America.

  16. avatar

    Another good column.

    Did you see the article that states half of China’s wealthy want to emigrate, with the U.S. and Canada as the most popular destinations? Even if would-be immigrants have money (from exploiting the low wage Chinese workers), I hope the American get a say in this, and how many other immigrants are admitted. We already admit over 1 million immigrants annually, our schools and prison are jammed packed, with taxes going up etc. — with our voices largely ignored in all of this.
