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.
What Obama did not say in his November 20 Announcement is that included in his plan are WORK PERMITS for these Millions of Illegal Alien lawbreakers. This means that there will be Millions of competitors for jobs and better wages for the millions of our most vulnerable unemployed and underemployed. Indeed, all net employment gains since 1970 have gone to immigrants (Senator J. Sessions, R. Ala).
Indeed, Obama granting Amnesty to Millions of Illegals is an Invitation for Millions more to come Illegally, because the Message it sends is “If you can get into the USA illegally you can stay, get work permits and free medical care and education for your Kids. And Citizenship for kids born after you arrive.”
And as an Arizona Sheriff and an Officer of the Border Patrol Officers Union agreed, in effect Obama has created an UNLIMITED Amnesty, because any Illegal apprehended in the USA is going to claim he/she has been in the USA for more than the five years “required” by the Amnesty Order!
Therefore one can understand the “Rationale” for The Obama Administration soliciting Bids for printing up to 34 MILLION!! Green Cards (Legal Residence Visas) and a Corresponding number of Work Permits for Illegal Aliens in and prospectively coming to our country, and those Millions to come…unless we stop them…. We must mobilize with these Facts to stop this increasing Flood.
Consider that Migrants from Central America come from countries with Population Doubling Times averaging +/- 25 years — a potentially limitless Migrant supply. Indeed, given that the latest World Population projections show a World Population of 11 Billion by 2100, (from today 7+ Billion) there is a limitless supply.
Also important, as far as immigration is concerned, Obama did NOT mention that his Unilateral Executive Order Eliminates the Secure Communities Program, in effect terminating all Interior Enforcement of our Immigration laws! In effect, all States are now Border States!
Regarding the Consequences, such an Unconstitutional Executive Order poses an Increasing Threat to our Public Health Environment, our Public Safety Environment, our Employment Environment, our Budgetary Environment, as well as our Natural Environment.
There is increasing Medical Evidence that Illegal Alien families from Central America are bringing the Infectious Enterovirus which has already killed several American children and paralyzed others. A study reveals a high incidence of this virus in Central America, where people have built up a natural immunity — in the U.S. it can be lethal.
Dr. Marc Siegel describes the Expanding Public Health Threat.
“......Since illegal immigrants who enter the US are not prescreened in any way, many carry disease.......ten to twenty-five percent of the immigrants (in Texas and Arizona) have Scabies, a highly contagious intensely itchy rash.... Already drug-resistant tuberculosis is spreading in Texas... Dengue Fever... is now spreading from the Illegal Immigrants into Texas and Arizona... Measles and Chickenpox are now emerging among the unvaccinated immigrants... now Swine Flu has appeared....” (Marc Siegel, MD, Fox News)
Couple this with threats of Insolvency hanging over local and State Budgets, threats which over a Million Legals per year plus this Illegal Alien Surge impose on School Districts, Hospitals, Law Enforcement and Infrastructure — an Existential Threat to the USA as we have known it, as General Kelly put it.
In effect this Executive Order Amnesty is similar in Magnitude to the Migrant Population Increase which the Horrendous Senate Bill (S. 744), would have generated. That Bill would have cost American Taxpayers a NET $6.3 Trillion (after subtracting taxes Immigrants pay) according to Heritage Foundation and cis.org studies.
And Consider the Employment Environment for Millions of Unemployed and underemployed Americans — just since last July foreign-born employment increased by 1,028,000, while native-born employment decreased by 780,000 (Rubenstein, VDare.com).
Harvard Prof. George Borjas estimates that our CURRENT high immigration — legal and illegal — results in a $402 Billion Wage Loss for competing American Workers, annually! Mass immigration depresses Wages and Displaces Americans.
And consider that Legal and Illegal Immigrant families account for 42% of the growth in Medicaid Costs since 2011. (cis.org)
All of the foregoing hit our own Working Poor, Middle Class, and Minorities the Hardest, which is why the Commission on Immigration Reform chaired by the late African-American former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan recommended in 1997 that:
- Deportation of Illegals is Crucial
- Legal Immigration should be cut in half to 550,000/year
- the Diversity Visa Lottery be abolished and Unskilled workers not be admitted at all, and that several family-based admission categories be eliminated (Families can, after all, be reunified in their country of Origin.)
Fortunately, Senator Jeff Sessions (who will Chair the Senate Budget Committee beginning January, 2015) and Rep. Salmon (R.–AZ) (along with 63 — at last count —House Members) have identified The Main Way we can STOP this Mass Immigration Surge IF we all help them… DEFUND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE AMNESTY!
Rep. Salmon and his Senate and House supporters are recommending that language be included in “ALL Appropriations legislation prohibiting the use of funds by the Administration for the implementation of current or future executive actions that would create additional work permits and green cards outside the scope prescribed by Congress…. The founding fathers gave us the power of the purse for moments just
The First Priority should be to focus on DEFUNDING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE WORK PERMITS FOR AMNESTIED ILLEGALS PROGRAM as well as other aspects of the Amnesty Program — a Deterrent to more Illegal Migrants coming as well.
As well, let us not forget how important it is for the protection of our natural environment that we STOP this Immigration Flood. Much of the west and southwest is suffering from Drought resulting in demands that waters be diverted from rivers to supply burgeoning populations — much to the detriment of the fish and other wildlife. Indeed the San Diego City Council has reportedly approved a program whereby Sewage Effluent would be reprocessed to use as Drinking Water!
And we reiterate that for every person added to the U.S. Population one acre of Farmland or Wildlife habitat is converted to developed uses. (Pimentel et al, Cornell)
So Urge your Representatives and Representatives-Elect to do the following:
- Join Senator Sessions and Rep. Salmon in DEFUNDING implementation of any and all provisions of an Executive Amnesty with emphasis First and foremost on the Work Permits program!
- Complete the Border Fence as already authorized by Congress.
- Deport Illegals, as President Eisenhower did with hundreds of Thousands of them in less than twelve months.
- Enforce Existing law regarding Border Protection. And
- Because a Dramatic Reduction in Legal Immigration of over One Million/Year is Essential — Agree to push a zero-net Moratorium Bill in the next Congressional Session.
The foregoing are Reasonable Initiatives — the Grassroots on both Right and Left, both Republican and Democrat are becoming increasingly FED UP with the Mass Immigration Surge. And Overriding Presidential Vetoes is Now Possible.
Finally, pushing a zero-net Moratorium Bill in 2015 is Extremely Important.
BALANCE is a co-Sponsor of the ASAP! (Alliance to Stabilize America’s Population) Coalition which, with the agreement of Activist leaders of over 45 other organizations, decided to push for a Moratorium AS A FIRST PRIORITY, nearly two decades ago.
Having a zero-net Moratorium goal is key as a long-term objective because it is reasonable and needed for long-term Environmental Protection (And it would still allow admission of appx 150,000 immigrants/year, including spouses and minor children of U.S. Citizens).
A zero-net Moratorium is The Necessary Condition for achieving U.S. Population Stabilization, long term Environmental Protection, Budgetary Solvency in State and local government (especially for our Health Care and Education Institutions) Tax Reduction, Unemployment Reduction and Social Cohesion.
And from a Strategic Perspective, pushing a Moratorium is Essential to delegitimize the whole Notion of Mass Immigration. Also, pushing a Moratorium maximizes Political 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. Such a Refusal is, indeed, Counterproductive — merely pushing for “lower immigration numbers” or for “immigration reform,” legitimizes the continuation of Mass Immigration because it sends the message that Mass Immigration is OK if we just tweak it a little bit. As well, being merely Defensive increases the chances of passage of Bad Bills, e.g., Illegal Alien Amnesties, and the Issuance of Unconstitutional Executive Orders.
How serious about actually achieving Immigration Reduction can an Organization be, if it refuses to push a Moratorium as a First Priority?!
In sum, if allowed to be implemented this Illegal Alien Amnesty will create a Demographic, Budgetary, Security, Public Health, and Environmental Disaster that is magnitudes greater than we already have.
Even though there is much Resistance in the Nation and New Congress to Executive Amnesty (indeed, over 50% of U.S. born Hispanics oppose it), that does not mean that that Congress will be automatically disposed to Reduce Immigration! Open Borders Factions exist in Both Parties.
THEREFORE, WE ARE FACING A MANY-MONTHS LONG SERIES OF BATTLES ON THIS ISSUE extending well into 2015. So PLEASE Help BALANCE Intensify our push for the foregoing 5-Point Program. Our Environment and Our Nation are at stake!!
Certain Cheap Labor Advocates on the Right and Ethnic Power and government Benefits Recipients on the Left are pushing hard for implementation of this Mass Illegal Alien Amnesty, AND FOR MASSIVE INCREASES IN LEGAL IMMIGRATION! Only our Massive Grassroots Effort can stop them! Phone Calls or Office Visits followed by Snail Mail letters are most effective (emails are often ignored and fax machines can be turned off).
And please consider that BALANCE is greatly outspent by the Cheap Labor Lobby and various Ethnic Power Lobbies. So Please Help BALANCE Intensify our push for the aforementioned five-point program, TODAY, NOW!
BALANCE very much needs you to make a Tax-Deductible Donation TODAY.
