If you think anything like I do, you must be absolutely flummoxed by the ideology of a certain political party. This nationwide political party on one hand never ceases to proclaim its “green” credentials while on the other hand has not actually said so publicly, has pretty much embraced the idea of open borders.
I mean am I missing something here? I hope it is not “racist” to point out the fact that the statistical evidence is obvious. Immigrants from certain countries have birthrates far exceeding those of native-born Americans. According to the folks at Support U.S. Population Stabilization, www.susps.org, post-1990 immigrants, their children and grandchildren have accounted for a full 61 percent of U.S. population growth in the last decade.
I mean if one is to seriously consider themselves an environmentalist, how, for the sake of Pete, can one honestly and rationally even consider taking the stance of being against closing the U.S. border to illegals?
Does anyone in this audience really want to try to make the case that the United States of America needs more people? Some have made the argument that we need immigrant labor to do the work that Americans simply refuse to do. Many Americans have indeed succumbed to either think that they’re entitled to remain dumb, fat and happy living off the public dole and others consider that certain jobs are beneath them. That much is hard to argue, but something tells me that employers will find a way to fill the gaps if illegal immigrant labor becomes somewhat scarce. An extra 25-30 cents for a head of lettuce? Fine by me! An extra 50 cents added to that dinner tab or bottle of wine? Again, fine by me.
There are those among us who truly believe it is America’s duty to help feed, clothe and educate every poor soul who manages to make it to U.S. soil. While in a perfect world that would be the thing to do, the fact of the matter is that the United States will spend $1.9 trillion more than it collects this year alone, with the national debt projected to stand at $20.3 trillion by 2020.
Now I hope you all don’t think that I’m writing this piece to just beat up on that one political party. There is plenty of blame to go around. The Catholic Church too has taken a stance not only more or less pro-immigrant, but also anti-birth control. Now this may be somewhat controversial, but should it be every Catholic’s top priority to not only see to it, but aid and abet the emptying of the Chamber of Guf, or the Well of Souls, as soon as possible?
Labor unions salivate at the thought of organizing the poor, the uneducated and the undocumented.
While I have been in the past very critical of gay “rights,” this is one area in which homosexuality may actually benefit society. Homosexuals as a pretty basic rule do not tend to reproduce in great quantities.
The human global population is expected to reach 7 billion in 2011. While 97 percent of that growth is predicted to occur in Asia, Africa and Latin America, it does seem increasingly difficult for the human race to continue being a good steward of the Earth with 7 billion, soon to be 10 billion mouths to feed.
The more Third World type immigrants who are allowed to relocate onto US soil, the more Third World type customs, Third World type corruption and Third World type birth rates we will all be forced to endure and pay for.
Close the borders now, Mr. President!
