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.

The Discharge Petition (which would Require the Speaker to hold a vote on the House Amnesty Bill) already reportedly has several Republican Members' tacit support, and many Democrats are actually signing on--171 as we write. Thus the Petition is just a few votes short of the 218 needed to REQUIRE a vote. And the Pressure on the Holdouts is Extraordinary, and increasing so it could pass any day. [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! Consider:

–The pro-Amnesty House Leadership reportedly wants to wait to push an Amnesty Bill until AFTER the Deadline for filing to run in the Primaries is past, so that Establishment Candidates will not have Tea Party or other Opposition.

–And if the Establishment can not succeed in passing a Bill before the November Elections, we understand they intend to try to do so in the Lame Duck Session after the November Elections.

–Perhaps the Most Immediate Threat comes from Senator Schumer (D-NY) who is reportedly circulating a 'Discharge Petition' among House members which would force a Bill out of Committee to be voted on! [More]

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), because the resulting Conference Bill would likely include the worst provisions of the Senate Bill Bills that come out of the joint Senate-House Conference Committee are almost inevitably passed and become law. Bills coming out of Conference Committee can be rammed through before the American people even know and have a chance to stop them. [More]

Great Threats & A Great Opportunity

Greetings!

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. Consider just one of the Many False Premises-- that there is a Shortage of Skilled Workers in Silicon Valley and in Hi-Tech and other fields generally. A recent San Francisco (a Hi-Tech Center) Chronicle Report gives the lie to that Labor Shortage claim:

“In 2012, three high-tech companies in Silicon Valley announced they were laying off a combined 48,000 employees. Layoffs continue this year, including last week's announcement that an otherwise profitable Cisco Systems was letting 4,000 people go".

HOW TO STOP OVERPOPULATION TIDAL WAVE BILL!

Dear Activist,

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.

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.  [More]

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.

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]

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."

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]

Year End Letter

Dear Activist: For every person added to the United States' population, one acre of wild or farm land is converted to developed uses.

overwhelmed.  [More]

Open Borders Lobby Threatens
Environment, Jobs, & Free Speech

The Open Borders Lobby has intensified its campaign to suppress discussion of the Negative effects of Mass Immigration-generated population growth on the environment and on Job opportunities for Americans. For every person added to the U.S Population, one acre of Wild or Farm land is converted to developed uses. Forty Million Foreign Born Persons now reside in the United States, and the U.S issues 125,000 Work Visas each month to the Foreign Born! Welfare use by low-skilled immigrants alone will cost U.S. Taxpayers $1 Trillion, and Social Security and Medicare costs from Obama's Stealth Illegal Alien Amnesty, over $2.6 Trillion, over the next ten years, if current policy is left unchanged  [More]

Letters from Vancouver:
Harbinger for the USA?

Vancouver's mayor, a former NDP Member of the BC Legislature, promises to make Vancouver the "greenest" city in the world by 2020. And yet he and his allies "plan" to accommodate more and more newcomers by squeezing residents together tighter and tighter. Former NDP Premier Mike Harcourt argues that single family housing should be replaced with higher density, and the city is now promoting the construction of 'backyard' housing that would preclude the use of backyards as gardens. I guess that is what was meant by "Eco-density". Have these people heard of Peak Oil? Where are all these extra people going to get their food? The farmland of the Fraser Valley continues to fall to the bulldozer, thanks in part to the changes made to the administration of the Agricultural Land Reserve, which allow good land in the south of the province to be traded for poorer land elsewhere, far away from our major population centre.  [More]

YEAR-END NEWSLETTER

Congress adjourned for electioneering but Senator Harry Reid and the Obama Administration didn’t give. The Lame Duck session Dream Act, as well as an even broader bill foisted onto an unwilling citizenry. BALANCE continues to oppose this Injurious Amnesty as well as the Special Benefits for illegal aliens that the bill includes.

Dear Activist, BALANCE fought the Dream Act in the Lame Duck Congress and the Obama Administration, the battle continues. Americans and our Environment face a continuing threat from Amnesty and Mass Immigration. Accordingly, and with your he hard as we turn the corner on 2010 and enter a new year.

In September, Senator Harry Reid tried to slick through the Dream Act with an Amendment to the must-pass Defense spending Bill. With 44 votes rejected Reid’s effort to end debate through “cloture” and, therefore, forced the Dream Act and other provisions largely unrelated to defense into Congress’ Lame Duck session. Open Borders advocates will not stop agi win it or 2] patriots veto the Acts of those who would sell out United States citizens, including our working poor and 15 Million plus Unemployed.  [More (pdf) ]

Illegal Alien Amnesty Threat Reborn!

Many are attacking Arizona's new Immigration Law with threats of boycott and other tactics designed to injure Arizona's economy. There is even an Obama administration effort to facilitate illegal entry through our national wildlife sanctuary located at the border by permitting water stations along the routes!

Water Stations for Human and Drug Traffickers?! This is absolutely outrageous! When will it end?!

And the Mainstream Media have suppressed reports of increasing Border Violence including the recent murder of an Arizona rancher and the shooting of US Border Patrol agents!

Illegal Alien Amnesty Threat Reborn!

The Obama/Pelosi victory in passing the Senate healthcare Bill has given momentum to other Administration agenda items. President Obama and Open Borders advocates have been hard at work getting ready to push new Illegal Alien Amnesty legislation through Congress. Indeed, Obama recently reconfirmed his intention.

As Population Environment Balance predicted, the Open Borders lobby has stepped up the pressure on Congress to pass another Illegal Alien Amnesty, and soon. Amid reports that Hispanic groups are threatening to withhold votes for Democratic candidates, President Obama appears to be moving full speed ahead to ram through a "comprehensive immigration reform" (i.e. Amnesty) bill before the midterm elections.

Ilegal Alien Amnesty Threat Looms as Fall Approaches

The battle over health care reform may be grabbing all the headlines during recent months, however, President Obama and the open border advocates are getting ready to push new amnesty legislation through Congress as early as September.

During a recent trip to Mexico, President Obama said that he wanted to give “an opportunity for those who are already in the United States to be able to achieve a pathway to citizenship so they don’t have to live in the shadows.” BALANCE knows that “a pathway to citizenship” is Washington DC code for Illegal Alien Amnesty!

ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY THREAT SKYROCKETS! STIMULUS BILL LIKELY TO CREATE NO JOBS FOR AMERICANS! THE ONLY STRATEGY LIKELY TO STOP THESE OUTRAGES!

A new study by Robert Rector shows that over 300,000 of the jobs resulting from the recently enacted Stimulus Bill will now likely go to Illegal Aliens. And that is only counting construction jobs.  Outrageous! Congress also watered down an Amendment which would have prevented the new jobs from going to foreign workers on H1B visas. These visas and similar categories are for three years and renewable. They allow bringing spouses, which often results in the birth of new US citizens, “anchor” babies and permanent migration. The record shows that most H1B visas are used by foreign-owned companies that have no interest in creating American jobs. [More]

Senate Stimulus Would Give 300,000 Jobs to Illegal Aliens

As you are reading this, the Senate is debating provisions for the Stimulus Package. Under the current Senate version, the Stimulus would NOT prevent the jobs created from going to Illegal Immigrants. 

About 15% of all construction jobs go to Illegal Aliens, and estimates say that this package could create up to 2 million jobs. As there is nothing in this Bill preventing these jobs from going to Illegals, at least 300,000 of these jobs would undoubtedly go to Illegals, as a recent Center for Immigration Studies report has shown.

STABILIZATION INITIATIVE!

U.S. Population Stabilization is essential to long-term environmental protection and sustainability.

Only BALANCE and its ASAP! Coalition Allies push an Initiative which if implemented would eventually result in U.S. Population Stabilization

The Centerpiece of this Initiative adopted by BALANCE and the sixty-plus organizations which are members of the ASAP! Coaliton is a zero-net -immigration Moratorium on Legal Immigration. [More]


December 2007

33 YEARS OF POPULATION-ENVIRONMENT BALANCE'S UNIQUE CONTRIBUTIONS

Highlights: Population-Environment BALANCE was founded as The Environmental Fund in 1974. Its mission is to stabilize the United States' Population to protect the environment. It fearlessly addresses issues which others are too timid to address. For example, BALANCE recognizes that the ONLY way to achieve U.S. population stabilization is to push to enact a Zero-Net-Immigration Moratorium. Thus BALANCE makes pushing a Moratorium its First Priority.

Starting with what is most recent: BALANCE and its ASAP! Coalition Allies successfully led the battle to stop five major illegal alien amnesty attempts in Congress in 2007. BALANCE employed the "moratorium push" strategy -- the ONLY effective strategy for both stopping the amnesty pushes and eventually getting reductions in legal immigration. A Moratorium message deploys a strategy that offers the best, and probably the only, means of stabilizing the United States' population. [More]

THE ONLY WAY TO WIN THE IMMIGRATION BATTLE


The ASAP! Coalition and BALANCE are pleased to send you an article by Selwyn Duke describing why it is essential to push for a Moratorium in order to get any reductions in legal or Illegal immigration.

Sen. Specter of Pennsylvania is poised to introduce a new immigration reform package. Sen. Specter's Open Borders record is clear, however, and we know that this will be nothing but another Amnesty Bill. Senator Specter says he has spoken to most of the Senators involved in this past Spring's immigration battle, outlining his plan and discussing how to get things started again. [More]

Victory!

BALANCE and its ASAP coalition allies led the way to defeat the Senate Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill on a failed Cloture vote of 46 - 53!

Our linking Illegal and Legal Immigration via pushing for a zero-net-immigration Moratorium was crucial in defeating the Open Borders proponents' argument that "the solution to the illegal alien problem is to legalize them all."

Now, join us in a temporary celebration and a renewed effort to dramatically reduce the 1 million plus annal legal immigration and continuing massive illegal immigration flow by helping us push our Moratorium Initiative.

Congratulations to one and all.


Census Bureau Distortions Hide Immigration Crisis
Real Numbers Much Higher

Publications on the size and growth rate of the U.S. population seem designed to confuse rather than enlighten. The Census Bureau made up for large annual underestimates of population growth during the 1990s with a 12 million person bump in the census year. Unfazed, it perpetuates error through massively undercounting illegal aliens.

URGENT ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY VOTE THREAT!
SENATE CLOTURE VOTE LIKELY THIS MONDAY -
WRITE, FAX AND CALL YOUR SENATORS TODAY!

Don't take Democrat or Republican Senators for granted. Some need encouragement to vote AGAIN against Cloture for S. 1348. Some are on the edge. Sources say that their mail and message boxes are relatively empty.

The United States Senate is likely to have the Pivotal Vote on the Alien Amnesty as early as this Monday!

That Pivotal Vote will be on whether to Invoke Cloture (i.e. shut off debate).

If 41 Senators vote AGAINST Cloture, the debate will continue and the Bill may die the death it deserves. If 60 or more Senators vote FOR Cloture, we can be assured that some horrific version of an Alien Amnesty Bill will pass the Senate soon. [More]
