URGENT ACTION ALERT
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.)
Consider California which receives about 400,000 Legal Immigrants per Year and increasing numbers of illegal immigrants. California has many attractions, generous Taxpayer-funded benefits among them.
But in addition to financial Costs, there are other very substantial Impacts. Those 400,000 Legal Immigrants plus the hundreds of thousands of Illegal Immigrants create a great and increasing demand for Housing. And since many of the Legal Immigrants especially are well-heeled and heavily subsidized, they have the Financial ability to “crowd out” the most impoverished Americans — many of whom end up living in the streets, or, if they are “lucky” in tent cities and Trailers. This Demographic Impact is merely the beginning.
The crowding of schools, roads, hospitals emergency rooms and public Transportation Systems is largely a result of mass immigration, both legal and illegal.
“…[I]mmigration overload has adversely impacted the carrying capacity of many schools … Especially K to 12…
“… 23% of students in public schools Today are from immigrant households … High Immigration States have seen even more dramatic increases … Nevada 35%, New Jersey 34% Texas 31%, …. Even in states that are not traditional Immigrant Destinations — Minnesota, Alaska, Kansas, … I in 7 students are from immigrant households …”
Christopher Daly, The Impact of Immigration on Public Education, Campoc Inc / NPG, March 2018
And worse, for every person added to California and the USA’s Population one acre of farmland or natural habitat is lost to development (Pimental, Cornell). The drain on aquifers and rivers is further testimony to the limited carrying capacity of any environment, including California's.
But there is a Solution Regarding Illegal Immigration; it is essential to:
- Complete the Wall
- Implement e-Verify
- Require asylum seekers to apply before entering the USA
- Require proof of kinship to protect children
and since the “Slots” allowing Legal Immigration (e.g., the Uncapped Asylee Category) are Magnets for Illegal Immigrants and since the numbers of Legal Immigrants is Far Too High anyway, it is also essential to enact a Zero-Net Moratorium on Legal Immigration. A NET ZERO Policy (i.e., where Immigration equals Emigration) would still allow 150,000/year of legal immigrants including asylees and refugees.
So tell Congress You want:
- Enactment of an all-Categories-included Zero-NET MORATORIUM on Legal Immigration!
- A strong preference in hiring be given to Americans and especially those 5.9 Million displaced by immigrants since 2005.
- Complete funding for The Wall.
- An end to Catch and Release of illegal aliens and an end to Chain Migration and Anchor Baby citizenship.
- Implementation of e-Verify.
- Require asylum seekers to apply before they enter the USA.
- Require DNA tests from adults and children claiming kinship.
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! Contact your representatives!

Dollar for Dollar, Donations to BALANCE and its ASAP! Coalition Allies who push a Moratorium, 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.
Refusal is to push for Net-Zero Immigration is counterproductive to genuine Immigration Reduction Efforts. Main Immigration Management Groups advocate such positions, possibly in full knowledge that they ensure unending Mass Immigration. Merely arguing for some reduction (but refusing to push a Zero-Net Moratorium) inherently sanctions the continuing Mass Legal (and therefore Illegal) Immigration flow.
The Next Few Weeks are Critical! The contests for the 2020 Elections have already begun!
