WHAT IS THE AMERICAN DREAM? That our children of all ethnicities can do better than their parents. Millennials however are crowded out of jobs, housing, schools and a chance to start families. Their "Pursuit of Happiness" guaranteed in the Constitution is being stolen by too many immigrants as the rich get richer and the rest get poorer. Our government is not just an economy... its main function is to serve the good of we the people
President Ronald Reagan - Our country ... has a special obligation to work toward the stabilization of our own population so as credibly lead others parts of the world toward population stabilization.
THE EARTH DAY FOUNDER said, "The United Nations, with the U.S. supporting, took the position ... in 1994 that every country was responsible for stabilizing its own population. It can be done ... it's phony to say, I'm for the environment but not for limiting immigration." Rockefeller Commission in 1972 recommended population stabilization also.
COMMISSION ON IMMIGRATION REFORM 1996 under President Clinton made recommendations on chain migration, E-Verify, birthright citizenship, amnesty and lower immigration that have not been followed. The late Barbara Jordan, Democratic Chair, declared It is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest. (That is, the people decide.)
"WHERE IS THE WEALTH OF NATIONS?" - A World Bank Study found that a nation's resources are far less important than the education and skills of the people and their rule of law. ("The Intangible Wealth of Nations," R. Bailey/Reason) Young Americans are being sabotaged by lobbyists and government. WE ARE NOT JUST AN ECONOMY.
MARTIN LUTHER KING ... the modern plague of overpopulation is solvable by means we have discovered ... what is lacking is the education of the billions who are its victims. 1966
"OUR NATIONAL MOTTO, E PLURIBUS UNUM - ONE FROM MANY - has been turned upside down as educators, activists and politicians strive to fragment the American population into separate racial, social, linguistic and ideological blocs. History is full of nations that have fallen from the heights to destitution.. The Roman Empire is an example." Thomas Sowell, formerly Hoover Institute, Stanford
THE SOCIAL CONTRACT is a contract between the living, the unborn, and the dead. We mistreat the unborn when we take away the legacy they are entitled to inherit, and we mistreat the dead by regarding ourselves as the sole proprietors of the things that they have left to us. Edmund Burke, Philosopher
PRESIDENT WILLIAM CLINTON, State of the Union, 1995 All Americans ... are rightly disturbed by the large number of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or immigrants. The public services they use impose burdens on our taxpayers.
SAMUEL GOMPERS, FOUNDER, American Federation of Labor Every effort to enact immigration legislation must expect to meet ... two hostile forces of considerable strength. One is corporation who prefer low wages rather than fair wages. The other is racial groups who ...want the doors left open for an influx of their countrymen regardless of the menace to the people of their adopted country. 1924
CESAR CHAVEZ, much admired Latino farm organizer, sent his men to the border to stop illegals who lowered wages for his workers. He died in 1993. In 2002, 1.1 million farm workers chased 388,000 jobs at an average annual wage of $10,200 - per California Employment Development Dept. report. Taxpayers have to pay for all the social programs, but a fair wage and decent working conditions would be cheap in comparison, especially since farm produce itself is a very small part of the final cost to shoppers.
K-12 CURIOSITY - 120 foreign languages in Nashville, Tennessee schools. Leading languages are Spanish, Arabic, Kurdish, and Somali!!!!
ONE MILLION AMERICANS PER REPRESENTATIVE? Immigration-fueled population is projected over 400 million in 2050. . . one million for each of 435 Representatives. As Aristotle said, To the size of the state there is a limit.
"DIVERSITY IS STRENGTH? THERE'S NO EVIDENCE OF THAT" per column by Thomas Sowell, Hoover Institution, Stanford 6-14-16. "E pluribus unum," study by Robert Putnam, Harvard sociologist, found that in diverse communities, people trust others less, have fewer friends, hunker down in front of TV. 72% of likely voters believe we are a more divided nation than 4 years ago. (Rasmussen 8-12-16). "Mexico Is Worried About An Influx of African and Asian Immigrants", 9/30/16 article. Diversity isn't strength in Mexico?
MODERN SINGAPORE IS THE INVENTION OF LEE KWAN YEW As a friend of our country he said that multiculturalism can destroy America because it is a gradual surrender of the essential culture that has made us great, plus a lack of assimilation and high welfare costs causing large deficients. (U.S. was 92% white and black in 1950, 150 million pop)
GOOD-BY, UNITED STATES. HELLO, "NORTH AMERICAN UNION". Little reported upon is a decade-old plan by the powerful Council on Foreign Relations to submerge our national sovereignty and integrate the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. (Article: "Trump Threatens "North American Union" Scheme" by Cliff Kincaid 7-10-15 www.aim.org) Current 120 million Mexicans have 34+ million living in U.S.
THOMAS JEFFERSON noted, The merchant has no country. (Is this true of some members of Congress bought off by business?)
HILLARY CLINTON 2013 - My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.
MARIO OBLEDO - California is going to be a Hispanic state and anyone who doesn't like it should leave. Co-founder of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Foundation MALDEF, Winner of the 1998 Presidential Medal of Freedom.
THE 2013 COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION ACT (Gang of Eight Bill) Luckily the Republicans let this bill die in the House after passing by the Senate. It would have given citizenship to illegals (amnesty) and raise the cap on H-1B visas for "highly skilled workers" from 65,000 to 110,000 and possibly to 180,000. It would displace more American workers by making a new W-visa for low-skilled jobs. The "Gang" is Senator Marco Rubio, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and Democrats Charles Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez, Michael Bennet.
