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!
Politicians have generally been quite reluctant to face these Costs of Mass Immigration for fear of offending certain constituencies.
But after the Election, and especially when the new Congress convenes in January, 2013, all Costs and Spending are likely to come to the Table.
Untouchable Issues, such as Reducing Mass Immigration and thus reducing its Fiscal and Environmental Costs will once again be doable.
After all, what is a Member of Congress or the Administration to Do When presented with Questions Framed like the following:
"Why Cut Medicare (or Social Security, or Defense, etc..) when we can save (e.g.) $7 Billion/yr. by eliminating Child Tax Credit Refunds (see below) to the Parents of Illegal Aliens?
"Why tolerate increasing Unemployment Rates and 25 Million Unemployed Americans – due in part to displacement of American workers by Mass Immigration – when:
- The Overall Wealth of Americans plummeted 40% from 2007 to 2010. The poverty rate is on track to hit a 50 year high. Forty-five million Americans are on Food Stamps.
- Contrary to official government news drops, the Real U.S. Unemployment Rate is 23% (calculated per 1980s methodology by Shadowstats).
- And why not impose a zero-net-moratorium on Mass Immigration given the fact that from January, 2009 to July, 2012 in the USA:
- Foreign-born employment ROSE by 1.417 million, but
- Native-born employment FELL by 1.418 million (Rubenstein - vDare August, 2012).
Indeed, Illegal Aliens are on track to receive $7 Billion in Child Tax Credit Refunds in 2012, a whopping $3 billion increase over the $4 Billion they received in one recent year (Office of Senator Jeff Sessions, R-Ala).
Not helping is the Obama Administration's two Amnesties, this year by Executive Order, President Obama gave legal residence AND WORK PERMITS to 1.4 million "Dreamers" – adult illegal aliens who were brought to the United States as children.
The Obama Administration has also de facto Amnestied the millions of Illegal Alien Parents of these 'Dreamers', and has stopped deporting Illegal Aliens who have not been convicted of a crime.
Moreover, according to an April, 2012 DHS report, some ONE MILLION SIXTY THOUSAND Immigrants were admitted to Permanent Legal Residency in the USA via Green Cards in 2011, and were thus AUTHORIZED TO WORK thus depressing American wages!
In addition, hundreds of thousands of (temporary) work-authorized persons are admitted to the USA each year via Visa categories such as H1B. Many of these stay permanently, legally or not. Many bring families and additional children born in the United States become automatic US citizens.
In sum, about 90% of the USA's 150,000/month+ population increase is thus caused by Mass Immigration. The larger numbers impose $Multi-Billion Net Costs (i.e., after subtracting taxes Immigrants pay) on Hospitals and Schools (which provide de facto free, i.e., Taxpayer Funded, education and medical care to both legal and Illegal Immigrants).
And consider the Environmental Impacts of the USA's Mass Immigration-generated Population Growth which continues on trend to reach ONE BILLION in 2075, as BALANCE's Chart shows!
- Crowding and increasing use of limited Natural Resources, and
- For every Person added to the United States' population, one acre of Precious Farm Land or Wildlife habitat is converted to Developed Uses.
Moreover, post-1970 Immigrants and their Offspring will outnumber pre-1970 Immigrants and the Native-born plus their Offspring, by 2050 if current Immigration and Fertility trends continue, a trend which Official Reports fail to mention.
And it is Important that BALANCE provide accurate numbers regarding unemployment and the economy too. Thus we must stress that no government agency reports Unemployment according to the method used up through 1980.
Real US unemployment is over 23 percent!, – using that methodology [see shadowstats.com].
Indeed, the Real U.S. Unemployment Rate has been over 23% for many months and is NOT decreasing and, on current trends, seems not likely to improve.
Reciting the foregoing highlights the fact that continuing Mass Immigration takes Jobs that could be filled by Americans, that it is extremely economically Costly, that it drives Population Growth and therefore, is an increasing burden on the Environment.
Thus we all need to begin NOW to publicize these Negatives resulting from
- Mass Immigration AND THAT THERE IS A SIMPLE SOLUTION–
- DRAMATICALLY REDUCE LEGAL AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
- BALANCE WILL BE MAKING ALL THESE POINTS TO THE NEW ADMINISTRATION AND NEW CONGRESS!
- AND BALANCE NEEDS YOUR HELP IN MAKING THESE POINTS TO THE NEWLY ELECTED ADMINISTRATION AND CONGRESS
- BALANCE GREATLY NEEDS YOUR DONATIONS NOW SO WE CAN INTENSIFY OUR EFFORTS!
The Key Points to be Made are in this Letter and in our 2012 eAlerts posted at www.balance.org.

When we hit The Fiscal Cliff, ALL Possible Reductions will be on the Table.
AND THAT INCLUDES REDUCTIONS IN IMMIGRATION AND THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH IT.
When we tell our Representatives before, and especially after, the Election that we can save tens of Billions of Dollars and Millions of Jobs they will be much more Sympathetic to our Request.
America's Unemployed and Taxpayers need a zero-net MORATORIUM on Mass Immigration if the U.S. is to have any hope of improving the Employment Environment, reducing Spending and Protecting the Natural Environment!
