Public Health Environment Threatened by HEROES Act Open Borders Provisions — Help BALANCE Stop Mass Immigration

As if the Threat to the Job Opportunities of the 40 Million Unemployed Americans posed by continuing Mass Legal and Illegal Immigration were not enough, the HEROES Act (H.R.6860) recently passed by the House would greatly increase risk to Americans’ Health.

If passed by the Senate, as is, the bill would grant deferred Action and work authorization to Illegal Aliens and allow Stimulus Checks from the CARES Act to be paid to these Illegals!

Almost needless to say Illegals have not been and are not subject to health screening when entering our country.

As well, the Bill would extend Expiration Date for Non-Immigrant Visas and Work Permits,  and permit the importation of Foreign Health Care Workers to compete with the 130,000 plus of our own unemployed Health Care Workers.

And, in California, Governor Newsom has committed $75 Million of U. S. Taxpayers’ Money to support Illegal Aliens.

Fortunately, there are some lawmakers in the Senate and House fighting back.

In the House, for example, members of the Freedom Caucus led by Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) urged the President to suspend granting any New guest-worker Visas for at least one year.

BALANCE applauds this Effort but believes the chances of passage would greatly improve if legislators would push BALANCE’s SOLUTION ¾ a permanent all-categories included Zero-Net Moratorium, for Public Health, Environmental Protection and a host of other reasons.

Specifically, here is what needs to be done to take advantage of the horrible opportunities provided by the Pandemic and Consequent Unemployment, and why.
It is no accident that New York City and Environs are the Ground Zero of the Corona Virus in the USA, it is important to reiterate.

New York City is the most Densely Populated City in the USA and is a Major Hub for International Travel and Destination for Immigrants. Consider:

“‘There is a strong correlation between the risk of pandemic and human population density. We’ve done the math and we’ve proved it,” said Dr. Peter Daszak, a disease ecologist and the president of Eco Health Alliance, who examined the link in a 2008 study published in the journal Nature…. Looking at contemporary outbreaks since the mid-20th century, Daszak and colleagues found that the emergent diseases caused by pathogens new to humans has increased significantly with time, even when controlling for progress in diagnosis techniques and surveillance ….”

“Pandemics, Population Growth, and Globalization,” Scientific American, via capsweb.org. 04/11/2020

Many of the  newly threatening pathogens emerge where exploding human populations have intruded on the habitat of non-human species.  Separation that formerly characterized human/animal interactions shifts into more intimate contacts. The pathogens jump from animal to human.  The intensity of travel and population mixing then spreads disease globally.

Now, with the Corona Pandemic Raging, the USA is suffering yet another Negative Consequence of Globalism (as opposed to Nationalism and Internationalism). Over two decades ago, BALANCE co-sponsored a “Lifeboat USA” Conference. “Lifeboat USA” says it all. World Population increases by 80 Million per Year and the pressure to immigrate to the U.S. will only increase. We must do all we can to protect our already dangerously overcrowded National lifeboat from sinking. This requires:

  • an immediate all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium on Legal immigration (Indeed, BALANCE was the first to advocate a Zero-Net Moratorium when in 1988  its eminent Board member Garrett Hardin, [RIP] published an article "Zero Net Immigration is the Goal")
  • USA production of all essential Goods, Materials and Services and especially Health Care Materials and Services (China now produces over 80% of all pharmaceuticals including Penicillin!)
  • Closing our Borders permanently to Illegal Entry. Complete The Wall! Consider further Disease Consequences of NOT closing our Borders on which BALANCE reported in April 2019.

The Solution includes ending the Visa Lottery, Chain Migration and Birthright Citizenship, and above all limiting the overall Numbers via an all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium.

We reiterate: to reduce the number of Illegals, it is essential to dramatically reduce the number of Legal “Slots” (e.g., the uncapped Asylee Category) which serve as a Magnet for Illegal Aliens coming! The Asylee category encourages Child Trafficking, because if an Illegal migrant brings or “acquires” a child that Illegal immigrant is not deported, and is likely to get a green card.

So tell Congress NOW You want

  • Enactment of an all-Categories-included Zero-NET MORATORIUM
    • (i.e., where Immigration equals Emigration, i.e., about 150,000 per year) on Legal Immigration! and
  • Funding to Complete building The Wall
  • Implementation of e-Verify
  • An end to
    • Catch and Release
    • unlimited grants of Asylum
    • Chain Migration
    • Anchor Baby citizenship
    • All work-based Visas (e.g., no more H1a and H1b Visas) Over 40 Million Americans are now unemployed, so now is the time to mandate a permanent “Hire Americans Only” policy

Consider the consequences of NOT implementing the aforementioned. Among the most important are:

  • BALANCE has for years documented the toll that Mass Immigration takes on the Environment (Pressure Intensifying to Migrate to the US) , including the loss of one acre of farmland or natural habitat for every person added to the U.S. population! (Pimentel et al, Cornell)
  • And reported on the $330 Billion Annual NET Cost to U.S. Taxpayers from Legal immigration (Net Cost of Legal Immigration Study).
  • And increasing population density and Immigration have life-threatening Disease Consequences!

And please help BALANCE MOBILIZE ACTIVISTS and contact Media and Congress to intensify our push for the aforementioned all-categories included Zero-NET MORATORIUM TODAY, NOW!

Please contact your representatives!  The Open Borders lobby is already pushing to enact all the “Bad Bills” we helped successfully stop late last year.

And it appears the Open Borders (Cheap Labor) Lobby had a hand in watering down President Trump’s 60-Day Moratorium Order ¾ It includes Exceptions for Work-Based Visas, further damaging the job opportunities for the 40 Million+ Unemployed Americans!

TO MAXIMIZE BALANCE's CLOUT PLEASE DONATE NOW! by Credit Card on our website: BALANCE or by check to: Population-Environment Balance | P.O. Box 268 | San Francisco, CA 94104 

Dollar for Dollar, Donations to BALANCE and its ASAP! Coalition Allies who push a Moratorium on the approximate 1.6 Million Legal Immigrants who settle in the U.S. each year (including the 400,000 settling each year in California), create much more Political Clout for reduction in both Legal and Illegal immigration numbers than Donations to Mass Immigration Management Groups, i.e., those who refuse to push for an all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium, and, therefore, de facto endorse continued Mass Immigration. 

Failure to push for a Zero-Net Moratorium constitutes de facto support for continuing Mass Immigration, only at lower levels.

Indeed, one Management Group, NumbersUSA, recently bragged “We’re not missing a beat in Mobilizing. The Open Borders provisions … we’ve kept out of the Senate rescue package,” (claiming) “years of Deep Networking on the Hill,” made their “victory” possible!

Reality: Outrageous & Counterproductive False Claims.

The Bill enacted contained $350Million! for “Migration and Refugee Assistance!!” NumbersUSA’s Fake News Victory Claims actually encouraged Activists to cease resisting the Open Borders Lobby!

And the other National Management Group, FAIR, seemed MIA on the Bill. FAIR seems oblivious to the Fact that Uncapped Categories of Legal Immigration (e.g., the Asylee Category) are Magnets for Illegal Migrants. See unfairus.org for a history of FAIR’s Counterproductive Policies. Very Sad and entirely Counterproductive.

Therefore, only support for BALANCE and the other Groups which support a Zero-Net Moratorium will succeed in reducing Legal and Illegal Immigration. BALANCE is co-sponsor of the Diversity and ASAP! Coalitions for an Immigration Moratorium. This Economic Crisis has caused many BALANCE donors to reduce or stop their Donations which greatly  threatens BALANCE’s activist efforts. Please Donate today to help us keep fighting for you!

Stop Open Borders/Overpopulation Compounding Threats Now!
An Opportunity!

$350 Million for Migration and Refugee Assistance has been included in Congress’ CoronaVirus Stimulus Bill demonstrating again The Power of the Open Borders Lobby! And there are more Open Borders Threats. Read on!

And Note that the Virus “Hotspots” Worldwide have one Negative in common – they either are Ecologically Overpopulated and/or have substantial inflows of Immigrants/Visitors from Overpopulated areas.

In the Viral Hotspot Northern Italy, for example, China has for the past couple of Decades, been buying Italian luxury Brands, but also in that period has brought in over 100,000 Chinese Workers from Wuhan and elsewhere in China to continue the manufacturing. And now the Italians are paying the Ultimate Price for Open Borders (N. Gingrich, Life, Liberty & Levin, 3/29/2020)[Read More]

It Will Get Much Worse

BALANCE hears some long-time U.S. Population-Stabilization Activists wearily claiming:

“It” — “The Demographic/Environmental/Deficit Trends in the USA” are Bad but can Not get much Worse and
—There is a high improbability we can make significant progress toward achieving U.S. Population Stabilization.

To Reduce CO2 Emissions Stop Mass Immigration
11K Scientists & Others Agree: Over-Population is a Major Cause of CO2 Emissions

Recently, 11,000 scientists and others around the world issued their joint conclusions on the causes of "Climate Change." One conclusion stands out — over-population is a major contributing factor to CO2 pollution. Thus, it is not a surprise that the two most over-populated countries in the world — India and China — account for well over 50% of world CO2 Emissions. And since allowing Mass Immigration increases population in the sending countries as well as in the receiving countries, stopping Mass Immigration is essential to reducing CO2 Emissions. [Read More]

Population Explosion Bills Threat to Pass This September — The Solution to Help Stop Them

S.386 (Kamala Harris, D. CA) and Companion Mass Immigration Increase Bills are all a Threat to Pass as one Gigantic Composite Immigration “Reform” Bill when Congress reconvenes this September.

S.386 (the Senate Version of H.R.1044 which already passed The House) would dramatically increase Legal Immigration via, inter alia, the H1(B) route to Green Cards, specifically, e.g., this Bill would, inter alia, allow admission of 300,000 H1B Indian Contract Workers annually! (displacing Americans from jobs) plus 300,000 of their family-members annually (cis.org and Breibart.com).[Read More]

Mass Immigration Drives Homelessness, Crowding & Taxes

Legal and Illegal Immigration is a Major cause of Increased Homelessness and Crowding (and Taxes everywhere in the USA) especially in those Areas which receive large numbers of Immigrants — New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles.

In the USA, about 60% of all Legal Immigrants and about 70% of all Illegal Immigrants take advantage of one or more U.S. Taxpayer-Funded Welfare Programs (cis.org) — “Free” Medical Care, Welfare, Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing, etc. which costs U.S. Taxpayers $330 Billion per Year NET (after subtracting Taxes Immigrants pay). This does not include State and Local Costs. (See Net Costs of Immigration Study.)[Read More]

Disease-Infected Illegals Flood Our Border — TB, Parasites, Pneumonia, Dengue et al

As another “Caravan” of Central Americans approach our Border — [and current Asylum law would de facto legalize most of them! — an estimated 100,000 in March, 2019 alone! USAToday, 3/30/19] and it is important to consider yet another Negative, in addition to Net Costs (Net Costs of Legal Immigration Study), Drug Running, Human Trafficking, Mass Migration of Legal and Illegal Immigrants brings — DISEASE.

Massive Legal & Illegal Immigration Increase Bill Introduced — Tell Congress Moratorium Now!

HR 6 just introduced in the House by Democrat Nancy Pelosi would dramatically increase both Legal and Illegal Immigration, offer Amnesty and citizenship to not only DACA recipients, but also those with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) status. Even some already-deported illegal aliens would be allowed to apply to legally return under the Dream and Promise Act, announced by House Speaker Pelosi. [Read Further]

Legal Immigration Adding 50 Million to U.S. by 2060 — Support BALANCE’s Reduction Initiative

Legal Immigration will add over 50 Million to U.S. population by 2060, about three times more than Illegal, given current trends (U.S. Census/CIS analysis, S. Camarata, “Immigration to Add 75 Million by 2060”) with all the Negative Environmental and Budgetary Consequences BALANCE has documented.

But if we intensify our efforts NOW, we can get reductions just after the 2020 election. [Read How]
