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.

Valerie Jarrett, Senior Adviser to President Obama, recently told an Investment conference that Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) had committed to passing an Amnesty Bill AFTER this June’s Primaries are over, just as BALANCE has earlier warned!

So we must intensify our anti-Amnesty campaign!

In addition to the many reasons BALANCE has laid out demonstrating that Amnesty is not good for the USA’s Environment or us U.S. Citizens, consider:

“There is NO STEM Worker Shortage in the USA”, according to a recently released CIS.org study. Indeed, there are more than twice as many people with STEM degrees as there are STEM jobs, that study found, and will be even more as Silicon Valley continues to lay off thousands. 8 Million STEM degree holders are not working in STEM jobs.

Indeed, Mass Immigration is crowding out Americans in many ways including in the Public Health Environment. American patients may get short shrift as crowded hospitals around the USA are reaching out to attract affluent immigrants as patients, according to an American Hospital Assn. report via the Associated Press (5/15/14)

And of course the Public Safety Environment is not helped by the fact that 36,007 convicted criminal aliens were released back into local communities in the USA in 2013, rather than being deported, according to a U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Enforcement (ICE) Report released this month.

No wonder the Major County Sheriff’s Assn. representing counties with more than 500,000 population sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson, calling for better immigration enforcement.

And need we repeat that Mass Immigration continues to increase water demands in the drought stricken southwest.

Legal immigration alone adds 1 Million plus per year to the U.S. population.

Further, immigration-generated population growth is a primary cause of economic inequality, contrary to French economist, Thomas Piketty’s, conclusion that capitalism causes a steady rise in inequality.

The Financial Times states that Piketty’s transcription of the original data is sloppy, he cherry-picked data, his formulas are wrong, and he did his sums badly.

In any event, Piketty’s charge that “capitalism did it!” is wrong. A little reading of history shows that economic inequality has grown or lessened depending on population pressure. When population grows faster than the number of new job opportunities, inequality happens.

For example, a tripling of European population between 1000 and 1300 A.D. was marked by the development of feudalism. The feudal system tied people to land, where the products of their work were confiscated by the next higher level in this hierarchical system.

Feudalism abated when the population was decimated by the Black Death [1345-1430].
Recurring epidemics kept labor scarce, and wages exploded up. Wages started to fall again [resurgence of inequality] as the European population recovered in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Bottom Line: When Population grows faster than wealth (i.e. than GDP growth), then Per Capita GDP declines. That highlights a Major Reason that the Middle Class is treading water or losing ground in the USA today.

So Help us combat the coming Illegal Alien Amnesty (plus a tripling of Legal immigration in the already passed Senate Immigration Bill). Push NOW against this ruinous immigration policy.

Ask your Representatives and those who wish to go to Congress to make the following PLEDGE:

1) Vote NO on ANY Discharge Petition and/or immigration Bill which could go to conference with, or includes any provisions of, the Senate Bill;

2) Vote NO on ANY Amnesty or Work Permits for Illegal Aliens;

3) Vote NO on any Bill increasing Legal Immigration, whether via H1(b) increases, or otherwise;

4) Support the Bills (see earlier BALANCE Alerts) requiring the Executive to enforce the law;

5) Agree to push a zero-net Moratorium Bill in the next Congressional Session (but NOT in this Session, because any such Bill would risk coming out of Conference Committee looking like the Horrendous Senate Bill).

Pushing a zero-net Moratorium Bill in the Next Session is Extremely Important.

BALANCE is a co-Sponsor of the ASAP! Coalition which laid out the Rationale for pushing for a Moratorium years ago.

Having a Moratorium goal is key as a long-term objective.

But the push for it should start in the next Session of Congress.

A zero-net Moratorium is the Necessary Condition for achieving U.S. Population Stabilization, long term Environmental Protection, Budgetary Solvency, Tax Reduction and Social Cohesion.

And from a Strategic Perspective, pushing a Moratorium is Essential to de-legitimize the whole Notion of Mass Immigration.

Therefore, pushing a Moratorium maximizes Pressure to get some Reductions at least.

Refusing to push a Moratorium (as some Mass Immigration Management [de facto] Groups do), is a Recipe for Failure, since that is merely Defensive.

And being forever on the Defensive increases the chances of passage of Bad Bills, e.g., Illegal Alien Amnesties.

How serious about actually achieving Immigration Reduction can an Organization be, if it refuses to push a Moratorium?!

Any Immigration ‘Amnesty’ Tidal Wave Bill which enacts an Illegal Alien Amnesty or increases Legal Immigration (the Senate and one House Bill would triple it!) would create a Demographic, Budgetary, Public Health, and Environmental Disaster that is magnitudes greater than Mass Immigration already is creating.

Phone Calls or Office Visits followed by Snail Mail letters are most effective (emails are often ignored and fax machines can be turned off).

So please Help BALANCE Intensify our Opposition to ANY such Bill NOW!

The House Leadership is Now determined to enact their Open Borders ‘Principles’ into law.

Only our Massive Grassroots Effort can stop them!

Please forward this Alert to your Friends today!

And consider that BALANCE is greatly outspent by the Cheap Labor and various Ethnic Power Lobbies.

So Please Help BALANCE Intensify our Opposition to ANY Bill TODAY, NOW!
