  • If this Immigration bill passes, Immigration is effectively dead

    I am absolutely disgusted with Congress especially the republicans for supporting this amnesty bill. Everyone expects the liberals to come up with this type of bill because it gives them more ill-informed victims and voters in the long run but for the republicans to aid them is outrageous. This bill will haunt this country for generations to come because we all know that the so called promise to beef up border security will never materialise and so it will be a repeat of the 1986 amnesty except this time the results will far worse

      Legalizing all the illegals probably will have very little ill effects. In fact it would help to keep the wages from being driven so low, and would provide workforce for industries that are struggling to find it. Amnesty would probably solve a LOT of things in reality, regardless of if it seems like a fair or unfair thing.

      However, if this bill passes, it will create still more and more illegals and thus not really solve the problem for the future.

        According to the California Department of Water Resources, if more supplies aren't found by 2020, residents will face a shortfall nearly as great as the amount consumed today. Los Angeles is a coastal desert able to support at most 1 million people on its own water; the Los Angeles basin now is the core of a megalopolis that spans 220 miles from Santa Barbara to the Mexican border. The region's population is expected to reach 22 million by 2020. California population continues to grow by more than a half million a year and is expected to reach 48 million in 2030. But water shortages are likely to surface well before then. Water is already a scarce resource in Texas and the increased demand generated by population growth is exacerbating the problem. By 2010, over ten percent of the water needs in urban areas will not be met during times of water shortages. El Paso, San Antonio, and Albuquerque could run out of water in ten to 20 years.

            Everyone has heard of the "population explosion". In just over sixty years, Brazil's population has increased by 318 per cent; Colombia's by 352 per cent, and Ethiopia's by 503 per cent - and so on, with, in general, the most impoverished of these nations showing the most unbelievable increases.

            While everyone knows that the population of the Third World has increased dramatically, how many realize that there are now 73 million people in Ethiopia - more than the population of Britain or France - or 43 million in Colombia? The supergiants of China (1.3 billion) and the Indian subcontinent (1.4 billion) will be less surprising, perhaps, than the current size of several countries not on the above list, such as Indonesia (242 million), Nigeria (129 million), or Mexico (106 million).

            The causes of these vast increases are obvious enough: western medicine, applied to the eradication of communicable diseases and epidemics and to a decrease in infant mortality, in countries which have not undergone the "demographic transition" to smaller family size and lower rates of population growth, such as Britain experienced after about 1870, and in cultures where birth control and family limitation are shunned.

            1900 - Africa 133 million people - Asia 946 million - Europe 408 million - Latin Am. & Caribbean 74 million - Northern America 82 million

            2050 - Africa 1,997 billion people - Asia 5,266 billion - Europe 664 million - Latin Am. & Caribbean 769 million - Northern America 445 million

            Source: Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nation. World Population Prospects: The 2006 Revision.

            The consequences of these increases are numerous and are almost always extremely deleterious and dangerous. They include:

            - The chronic inability of many of these countries to escape from the "Malthusian trap" via economic growth exceeding population growth. Many Third World countries simply lack the economic or infrastructural base to provide a rising standard of living for most of their people, especially in Africa, the Arab world, and parts of Latin America.

            - Illegal (and legal) immigration to the developed world on an unprecedented scale, creating an unprecedented demographic and political problem in Europe and the United States. Even the controlled and legal migration of talented and well-educated people from the Third World to the developed world denudes it of its limited skills base.

            - Reinforcement within the Third World of extremist and fundamentalist religious and political ideologies and of terrorism. Given the discrediting of Communism and of other secular universalistic ideologies, these now almost always take the form of religious fundamentalism with a strong anti-Western, anti-modernist, violent core, most obviously in the Islamic world. Endemic corruption in the Third World, already ingrained in most, but not all Third World cultures, obviously grows among bureaucrats in chronically impoverished states.

            - Extreme pressures on natural resources, the denuding of forests and rural areas, the slaughter of wildlife, and the threat of deadly epidemics.
