LAST GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR U.S. POPULATION STABILIZATION
—THE ONLY STRATEGY FOR SUCCESS—
The Election of Donald Trump to the Presidency creates the Last Great Opportunity for achieving eventual U.S. Population Stabilization, especially since one of President-elect Trump's main advisors on Immigration Policy and now the prospective Attorney General is Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala) who favors substantial reductions in legal immigration as well as stopping Illegal.
But these two gentlemen can not achieve dramatic reductions alone; they need thousands of activists including BALANCE activists to push Congress to cooperate by implementing The Only Strategy for Success.
The Only Strategy is simple. Inform your Representatives of The Facts and provide them with The Solution. So first, The Facts: [Read More]
CANDIDATE REALITY THERAPY
Certain candidates for Federal, State, and Local Office need “Reality Therapy” about the destructive effects of Mass Immigration-generated Population Growth on the Environment, Economy, and Taxes, and so do some of those others whose policies directly or indirectly affect Immigration.
So the following are Therapeutic Educational Materials and questions for them: Read more...
DEMOGRAPHIC ARMAGEDDON ACCELERATING
—SUPPORT BALANCE’s REAL SOLUTION
BALANCE’s Major Goal since its founding in 1974 has been, and is, to achieve U.S. Population Stabilization to protect the Environment.
But population stabilization efforts have been stymied, despite the native-born population's small family size, by immigration. Since 1970, an increasing proportion of the US's population growth has been the result of Mass Legal and Illegal Immigration and the offspring of these more recent immigrants. At this time, approximately 90% of annual population growth comes from the immigrant sector.
FACT: The Pressure to Migrate to the USA is increasing. Read more...
HELP STOP DEMOGRAPHIC ARMAGEDDON
with BALANCE's REAL SOLUTION
Ed Rubenstein, writing at vDare.com, wisely asks: “… about the impact of second generation immigrants—U.S. born persons with at least one immigrant parent? They accounted for 8 per cent of the total working age population in 2012, according to the same Pew Research Center study. At 15.5 million, they were nearly half as large as the foreign-born population itself, because immigrants on average have a higher fertility rate than the native born population. Read more...
LAND, WATER, HEALTH, SAFETY INCREASINGLY THREATENED —
HELP REDUCE THREATS with BALANCE's REAL SOLUTION
—Every two and one-half minutes the eleven Western states lose a football field sized chunk of Open Land—essential for natural habitat—to Development, with over half of that land used for housing and commercial development. That's a Los Angeles sized area lost every year. As a result more than 300 plant and animal species are at or near Extinction, including one-third of North American Bird Species.

EARTH DAY FAILING — HELP SAVE THE USA!
Support BALANCE's 2016-2017 Victory Initiative —
The Only Real Solution
“The bigger the population gets, the more serious problems become.”
As late physicist Albert Bartlett frequently stated, no environmental problem was ever helped by increasing the population.
Human population growth has negative consequences worldwide for sure. Nevertheless, the solutions are overwhelmingly national and BALANCE's Real Solution can help both the U.S. and other countries. Read more...
61 MILLION IMMIGRANTS & ACCELERATING!—SUPPORT BALANCE'S
REAL SOLUTION NOW—BALANCE ALERT!
As of December, 2015, 61 MILLION! Immigrants and their young children were living in the USA, and THREE-FOURTHS CAME LEGALLY!
And the Inflow is ACCELERATING with over half a million Visa Holders overstaying their Visas in 2015 alone…truly a Demographic Tsunami, but, given that the World's population is increasing by 80 Million per year, the pressure to come to the USA will only INCREASE. Read More...
U.S. SUSTAINABILITY THREATS!—SUPPORT BALANCE'S
REAL SOLUTION NOW—BALANCE ALERT!
The USA we have known is under Threat from all sides. But BALANCE and its ASAP! Coalition Allies have a REAL SOLUTION — our 2016-2017 Initiative described below—which will work to diminish or eliminate key Threats if we all join to support it NOW.
First, just consider a few of the Threats: Read More...
2016-2017 ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION TURNING POINT! ACT NOW!
2016-2017 is likely The Point of No Return for the U.S. Population stabilization/Environmental Protection Movement. Mass Immigration-generated Population Growth is intensifying environmentally Destructive Trends. So we encourage you to help BALANCE implement its Real Solution outlined below before it is too late.

2016-2017 IMMIGRATION MORATORIUM VICTORY INITIATIVE
PARIS MASSACRES — A WARNING TO US
We BALANCE Activists have an excellent Opportunity to achieve Dramatic Reductions in Immigration and a Giant Step toward U.S. Population Stabilization before the end of 2017 if we all act NOW and encourage others to act as well. Read more.
UNLIMITED COMPASSION IS NOT SUSTAINABLE — MORATORIUM NOW!
Americans, Canadians, and Western Europeans have been urged by religious and ethnic leaders and some politicians and environmentalists, to show compassion for the millions of "refugees" from North Africa, the Middle East and Latin America pouring into Europe, Canada and the USA. [Read More]
Just STOP! —BALANCE Victory Initiative ALERT!
A 2011 Gallup Poll based on surveying 452,000 people in 151 Third World Countries found that 650 Million of the total of 6 Billion wish to Emigrate to the First World.
150 Million of those want to move to the USA — that’s 1 in 30 adults worldwide. And that poll concluded that immigrants were most likely to be Chinese, Indian and Nigerian.
Third World Population increases by about 80 million per year. [More]
Immigration Moratorium & Secure Borders
Victory Initiative -- A Real Solution Now!
"Help me, Dad!"
The last Words of Kate Steinle as she lay dying in her father's Arms — The Victim of a Murder committed by a five-times-deported Illegal Alien Felon, a Murder which would likely not have occurred had it not been for a Sanctuary City Policy which prevented the Felon's being remanded to the custody of ICE. And it also would likely not have occurred if we had Secure Borders. Over 275 “Sanctuary Cities” in the USA provide Refuges for Illegal Alien Criminals, including many repeat offenders. Yes indeed...

STOP “Trade” (Immigration Flood) Deal! &
Support BALANCE’s Real Solution
Greetings! The Senate has passed a TPA (Trade Promotion Authority) Bill giving President Obama “Fast Track” Authority to Unilaterally negotiate the Terms of the Trade Deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership with eleven (or more) Asian and Latin American Nations.
Only the House of Representatives can stop it now! [More]
MASS IMMIGRATION INTENSIFIES WATER CRISIS!
But there is A SOLUTION
The average 'Water Footprint' of each person in the USA is 2,220 Gallons per Day!! (Atlantic CityLab & Calif. Institute for Water Resources) “Water Footprint” means the total volume of Freshwater consumed (5%) directly in washing, cooking etc. and (95%) indirectly in the production of FOOD, goods and services for each person.

Mass Immigration Threatens U.S. Food &
Water Supplies & Budgets
How To Stop It Now!
The Tidal Wave of Legal (100,000/month) and Illegal Aliens Flooding into the USA not only Stresses Budgets — if Pres. Obama's Executive Amnesty is implemented at some point American Taxpayers will have to pay $1.3 Trillion for the Amnestied Aliens Social Security and Medicare alone! (Rector, Heritage Fdn.) — but the Mass Immigration-generated Population Growth is already seriously threatening U.S. Food and Water Supplies. [More]
Executive Amnesty Launching Alien Tidal Wave
How To Stop It Now!
The U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) just announced a Program whereby the RELATIVES of the 5 million plus Amnestied Illegal Aliens will also be eligible for Residency, Citizenship and Government (i.e. taxpayer-funded) Benefits, and Work Permits! And these benefits include “Free” Medical Care — appx. one Million Illegals would be eligible for MediCal in California alone, for example (S. Frank, California News).[More]
Stopping the Increasing Alien Flood
The Flood of Illegal and Legal Aliens entering the USA was facilitated by and will be dramatically increased by President Obama's November, 2014 Executive Illegal Alien Amnesty Order already deemed Unconstitutional by one Federal Judge and many Legal Scholars. That Order sends the Message Worldwide that if you can get into the USA you can stay . . . and receive taxpayer funded benefits!
But we have an Opportunity to Stop that Flood if we Act NOW! [More]
Deadline To Stop Illegal Alien Amnesty Flood:
February 27, 2015 —
And How To Stop It
President Obama’s unilateral, illegal and Unconstitutional November 20, 2014 Amnesty of at least five Million Illegal Aliens can be derailed. But it must be done before February 27, 2015 when Funding for Homeland Security (which oversees Immigration) runs out, since new Funding will surely be considered in January and February. It is crucial that together we achieve defunding of the Alien Amnesty. Because if allowed to stand, that Amnesty will draw Many Millions More than five Million into the USA.
Help Stop Disease And Lame Duck Dangers!
Of the 65,000 Illegal Alien Unaccompanied Minors and adults apprehended at the Mexican Border in 2014, and subsequently released, over 40,000 have not appeared for their Court Dates and have disappeared into the Interior of the USA.
None of the 40,000 have had Health Checks for Contagious Diseases or checks for being potential Terrorists either — all an Increasing Threat to Our Public Health and Safety Environment. [More]
Overpopulation Flood Threatens USA!
It is Bad Enough that President Obama's relentless push for Amnesty for Illegal Aliens serves as an Invitation for continuing Mass Immigration.
Bad Enough that our own Border Patrol is prevented from carrying out its Mission of Protecting our Border and instead is required to provide or obtain Food, Clothing, Shelter and Medical Care for Thousands of Illegals. [More]
Illegal Immigration Surge! Help Reverse It
The Obama Administration’s Push for Legalization of the Illegal Alien "Dreamers" (and Threat to accomplish it by Executive Order if Congress does not Act) has, predictably, encouraged tens of thousands of teenagers along with pregnant mothers and toddlers to flood into the USA with many more expected in the coming Months. And the U.S. Border Patrol is being pressured to welcome them, with food, shelter, and other benefits. [More]
“Victory, but INCREASING AMNESTY THREAT!”
Thanks to the EFFECTIVE Efforts of BALANCE activists, we were able to beat back the Open Borders House Representatives’ push to attach the “Alien Military Enlistees” Amnesty Bill to the National Defense Bill [NDAA] or to have it considered as a stand-alone Bill.
Kudos on our Tactical Victory! … But the Battle is far from over. [More]
EARTH DAY Hopes Drowned by Accelerating Amnesty Flood Bill – Stop it!
Earth Day Founder, Senator Gaylord Nelson (RIP) said that to protect the USA’s Environment, we must “Dramatically Cut Immigration and Stabilize Population … its phony to say I’m for the environment but not for limiting immigration …The Economy is the wholly owned subsidiary of the environment … If the environment collapses, so will the economy which depends on it.” [More]
Environment Threatened by ONGOING AMNESTIES by DECREE! and by An S744 Copycat Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill (H.R. 15) which is threatening in the House!
As BALANCE warned earlier this year, Mass Illegal Alien Amnesty (and more!) Bills are still very much alive in the House, notwithstanding Speaker Boehner's earlier comments to the Contrary. [More]
Illegal Alien AMNESTY THREAT INCREASING! Ask your Representatives to 'Take the Pledge'
Ever since House Speaker Boehner said that he did not think that any Immigration Bills would pass this year, some Illegal Alien Amnesty Opponents Relaxed.... (Just what the House Leadership – which favors an Amnesty–wanted!) But it is a Bad Mistake to believe that the Threat of the passage of an Amnesty Bill is over! Indeed, it is Increasing!

Drought and Iimmigration Growth
(Letter to the Christian Science Monitor from BALANCE Board of Directors Member, Kathleene Parker)
Regarding the Feb. 10 Briefing on California's drought: (reported by The Christian Science Monitor): Work to combat drought should include a hard look at the sacred cow of a booming population. Do Americans conserve merely to free water for more growth in this, the world's third most populated nation, behind only China and India?
In the 1918 drought, California's population was 3.5 million. Today, it nears 40 million. The Southwest teeters at the brink of the first federal water emergency on the Colorado River, a primary California water source, even as Gov. Jerry Brown and others extend a welcome mat to the world.
The Pew Research Center projects that fully 82 percent of US population growth between 2005 and 2050 will come from immigrants and their descendants. Yet we dodge discussion of the consequences demographics have on scarce water resources. We must not simply conserve or find "new" water sources; we must take steps to curb – or at least take into account – immigration-driven population growth.

Combat Unemployment, Drought, Increasing Taxes, Food Prices, and Environmental Degradation - Help Stop Illegal Alien Amnesty! Ask your Representatives to 'Take the Pledge'
The House of Representatives Leadership just released their "Standards for Immigration Reform" Unfortunately, they mirror many of the Horrendous Provisions of the Senate's Illegal Alien Amnesty Flood Bill (S. 744) including Legalizing ALL Illegals, providing them with Work Permits and enabling a tripling of Legal Immigration. Wherever we live in the USA, our Problems will worsen if any House Bill goes to conference with the Illegal Alien Amnesty Flood Bill (S.744). [More]
Great Threats & A Great Opportunity
As BALANCE prepares to launch our Action Initiatives for 2014, Great Threats are looming, but a Great Opportunity has risen. We urge you to help BALANCE fend off the Threats and seize the Opportunity. The Greatest Threat is of course that the House will pass some Immigration Bill, which, however positive, would go to Conference Committee with the horrendous Senate Bill (S. 744), with the almost certain outcome that the resulting Bill would be a copycat of the Senate Bill.S. 744 is a Bill replete with Deceptions and based on many False Premises. [More]
HOW TO STOP OVERPOPULATION TIDAL WAVE BILL!
BALANCE and Key ASAP! Coalition Allies are Now launching an Initiative which can succeed in STOPPING the Senate's Overpopulation Tidal Wave Bill (S. 744) now facing the House of Representatives. But we must all push this Initiative Hard NOW for it to succeed. This Strategy surmounts The Great Problem facing the House and all of us--ANY Bill passed by the House would go to Conference with the horrible Senate Bill, and any Bill coming out of the Conference Committee would inevitably contain many of the Very Bad Provisions of the Senate Bill [More]
STOP AMNESTY TIDAL WAVE BILLS IN THE HOUSE!
Unfortunately, leaders of both parties in the House of Representatives have expressed their desire to pass some Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill(s) in the House this Fall, legalizing the 25 Million plus Illegals in the USA and allowing them to import and legalize Millions more of their family members. Fortunately, some Representatives closer to their constituents intend to oppose any such Bills, not merely because Amnesty would cost U.S. Taxpayers over $6 Trillion NET (Heritage Fdn, CIS), or increase the suffering and decrease job opportunities for Americas' Millions of Unemployed, but also because Amnesty would swamp the USA's already overcrowded Medical and Education facilities and Infrastructure.[More]
STOP AMNESTY FLOOD DECEPTION BILL! & DISASTROUS PROGENY! -- Likely to Pass in Senate; -- Must be Stopped in House
Open Borders Advocates clearly want to HIDE the Disastrous Environmental, Budgetary, Employment, Economic, Demographic, Security, and Legal-Subversive Impacts of S. 744 (Schumer, NY, et al.) and its Destructive Progeny, like the Corker-Hoeven-Schumer Amendment and Copycat Bill Aborning in the House of Representatives. They are instead Marketing the Bill as a way to legalize the 11 Million (actually 24 Million plus) Aliens already living illegally in the United States. (Of course, even the Illegals brought here as children could return to their country of Origin and get in line for legal immigration with everyone else.) [More]
Stop Pro-Unemployment, Anti-Environment Amnesty Bill!
This Schumer-Rubio Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill (S.744) would launch an Unemployment Moonshot!
Real U.S. Unemployment via shadowstats (which calculates Unemployment the way it was done in the 1980s before the Official numbers became politicized) is ALREADY at:
23.9% in the USA
30.8% in California
19.9% in New York
22.4% in Florida, and
16.1% in Texas
Stop Amnesty Bill Tidal Wave!
The Amnesty Bill being rammed through Congress would do much more damage than merely Amnestying the 24 Million plus Illegal Aliens now in the USA, giving them AND their families residence and a Path to Citizenship in the USA. It would also TRIPLE the Legal Immigration flow to 3 Million per year and increase admission of STEM workers (via the H1b Program) to one million per year. In fact, the H1b program is a Cheap Labor program which benefits huge employers, while hurting the unemployed and underemployed with wage depression and job loss. [More]
Defend Citizens & Environment from Amnesty Flood Bill
President Obama says he expects Congress to debate the Immigration "Reform" Bill in April, so he can sign it as soon as possible (AP 3/25/13). But hold everything. “Immigration Reform” is DC code for Amnesty! Open Borders advocates hope for a quick vote so we will not have time to marshal effective opposition. [More]
Stop "Comprehensive" Immigration Flood Bill
The 'Gang of Eight' Open Borders Senators, and an ideologically compatible Group of House members are working, now behind closed doors, to flesh out the Details of their so-called Comprehensive Immigration 'Reform' Bill. 'Comprehensive' and 'Reform' are Washington words that should send Chills up every American's spine. Paraphrasing Will Rogers, it means that "the Congress is back from vacation and we definitely are not safe!!!" It now appears that once these Bills are introduced, the Open Borders lobby will try to Ram them through Blitzkrieg-Style, to shut off rational consideration. [More]
Urgent! Stop Open Borders Push!
Pressure has escalated in Washington, D.C. to pass a Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) bill as both its Republican and Democratic advocates call it. Indeed, if a bipartisan group of Pro Mass Immigration Senators have their way, the CIR Bill will be a de facto Open Borders Bill according to their plan announced today. Meeting Behind Closed Doors these Senators have decided to push a CIR Bill that would not only rubber stamp Senator Marco Rubio's (R-FL) Plan but also permit even more immigration than his plan contemplates. [More]
End of Year Letter
Dear BALANCE Supporter: 2013 provides BALANCE a Unique Opportunity, and also presents Serious Challenges. But as the ONLY explicitly Environmental National organization which advocates reducing Mass Immigration to protect the Environment, BALANCE is most favorably positioned to successfully meet the Challenges, by Mobilizing our Members and others.

Opportunity to Achieve Immigration Reduction, Slow U.S. Population Growth, Protect the Environment, & Reduce Unemployment
The Impending Fiscal Cliff is handing us the opportunity we have been seeking to achieve a Reduction in the some Two Million Legal Immigrants and Offspring, and another two Million Illegals & their Offspring, added annually to the U.S. population. Unwilling to act Now, politicians surviving the November, 2012 Election will be forced to realistically address the United States' Massive and Increasing Budget Deficits, Debt, and Unemployment, and to realistically and dramatically cut Costs. And as BALANCE supporters know the Fiscal, Employment, and Environmental Costs of adding some 4 Million Legal and Illegal Immigrants and their Offspring to the U.S. Population each year (90% of U. S. Population Growth) are Immense! [More]
Super Fires -- The Population Growth Connection
BALANCE Board member Kathleene Parker calls attention to the link between more dangerous forest fires in the U.S. west and the region’s rapidly growing population. Forestry experts began to recognize something terribly wrong in the mid-elevation forests of the American West in the 1990s—too late considering the region’s explosive population growth in recent decades. The region, especially the Southwest, has experienced Third World-like population growth rates of two, three and four percent a year, creating a deadly combination of towns and cities sprawling into previously mostly unpopulated forests. Those sick, dying, overgrown forests have the potential to literally explode, such as near Los Alamos, New Mexico, last summer, when the Las Conchas Fire burned an astounding one acre per second in a blowup that blackened 40,000 acres in a few hours.

American Jobseekers, Taxpayers, Environment Increasingly Overwhelmed by Mass Immigration! Act Now!
From January, 2009 when the Obama administration took office, to June, 2012, Immigrant Employment in the USA ROSE by 1.212 Million, or 5.6%. During the same period Native-Born employment FELL by 1.02 Million, or by.8% (Rubenstein, vDare, 7/8/12)
—In just the past 12 months Immigrants gained 725,000 Jobs! & the Immigrant labor force rose by 2.9% (Rubenstein) and
—The USA's Mass Immigration-generated population growth continues on trend to reach one billion in 2075. Indeed, if current immigration and fertility trends continue, Post 1970 Immigrants and their offspring will outnumber pre-1970 immigrants and the native born, plus their Offspring, by 2050. (BALANCE report, 2006) [More]
Help Halt Obama Amnesties Swamping Unemployed, Schools, and Environment!
Legislating by Executive Edict, President Obama recently announced that he had ordered a STOP to the Deportation of Young Illegals, and would make them Eligible for Work Permits. That’s another 1.4 MILLION Jobseekers competing with 23 MILLION plus American unemployed, and driving down the wages of those already employed. Worse, this latest Amnesty is part of the ONGOING Amnesties implemented by Obama, coming on top of the Administrative Amnesty Edict of a few months ago in which the Obama Administration announced only those Illegals convicted of serious crimes would be deported. [More]
Immigration Reduction Opportunity!
Though achieving a Reduction in the some Two Million Legal Immigrants and Offspring added annually to the U.S. population, may seem Unrealistic any month soon, it is NOT, and notwithstanding the current Gridlock in Washington D.C. Consider the facts. [More]
Help STOP this Bad Bill and Mass Immigration
Illegal immigrants and their offspring add over 2 million a year to the U.S. population. And Mass legal immigration also adds over 2 million immigrants & offspring to the U.S. population each year. Just think of the increased job loss, wage depression, strain on infrastructure and burden on budgets, hospitals and schools such an Influx causes -- and at a time when hundreds of thousands of Americans have lost and are losing their jobs! And when the net (after subtracting taxes immigrants pay) costs of Immigration to American Taxpayers are in the $multiBillions. [More]
Obama Administration Uses Environment as Pretext to Block Border & Environmental Protection
ACT NOW to support ' Protection from Transnational Gangs' Initiative. Using the Guise of Environmental Protection, the Obama Administration is blocking Border Control Agents' access to public lands along the border. This has allowed cross-border Human and Drug traffickers to run wild in these environmentally sensitive areas, and in the process to seriously damage them. "The criminals have destroyed the federal public land..." and "keeping the Border Control off simply allows illegal alien traffic to cause more damage." said Vice-Chairman Zack Taylor of the National Association of Former Border Control Officers, "It is the ploy of the Open Borders advocates to keep Border Control out and let the illegal aliens and drugs in." [More]
Help Stop Massive Cross-Border Illegals Flow!
Immigrants and their Offspring added about twenty million people to the United States' population in the decade 2000 to 2010, the highest number in the nation's history. About half of that number was from legal and the other half from illegal immigration. Now we have an opportunity to reduce the Illegal numbers and flow, at least. Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) plans to introduce a bill to halt the Obama administration's lawsuits against States that seek to enforce laws against Illegal Immigration. A companion bill (S. 1856) has already been introduced in the Senate. [More]
