Have you ever visited a bar when a drunk sauntered up to you with a story that began, “You ain’t gonna’ believe this, but have you heard the story about….”
Let me see if you can appreciate this story about our most immigrant-populated state:
Today, California houses 38 million people. It grows by 1,655 people every day of the year; virtually all that growth via legal and illegal immigration. Demographic projections show that immigration expects to add 20 million people with 30 years or less. (Source: www.capsweb.org)
If our wise and profoundly intelligent U.S. Congress passes the S744 Amnesty Bill, our country will be hit with a Human Katrina the likes of 33 million added people within a decade—by 2023. Not only will they give a free pass to 20 million illegal migrants, but they added another 500,000 legal immigrants annually to total 1.5 million which is a half million over the current one million annually today. On top of that, those immigrants expect to birth 900,000 babies annually to give our country a whopping 33 million+9million babies=42 million new additions to the USA within 10 years. (Source: www.cis.org , Dr. Steven Camorata) If you add in the family-reunification with up to 10 per legalized illegal immigrant, folks, this story gets even more exciting: we could add another 10 million on top of the 42 million to reach 52 million additional people in a decade.
Now put that in your pipe and smoke it, chew it, spit it out or gag. Take your pick.
Let’s look at California: a trio of water purveyors from three areas of the coast: Monterey County, the Santa Maria Groundwater Basin and the city of Paso Robles, detailed legal and environmental issues resembling an octopus’s tentacles challenging their respective areas to maintain rapidly depleting water supplies. Groundwater over-drafting and salt water intrusion exacerbated by urban and agricultural growth over the past three decades have reached well beyond taxing with such solutions as:
· Towing Arctic icebergs to the coast to melt for fresh water.
· Building cisterns for homeowners to catch drinking water supplies.
· Collecting fog for water.
How about this idea? Stop importing 100,000 legal immigrants currently every 30 days and soon to be 125,000 immigrants every 30 days into America.
(Below, northern California’s Lake Shasta at 31 percent capacity a few years back.)
“Assuming 33 million new immigrants in the next decade (rather than today’s 10 million, 1 million annually), a quarter of that would be 7.5 million more water-using residents ending up in Crowdifornia,” said California writer Brenda Walker. “Given the region’s natural history, Washington’s crazy-growth immigration policy is environmentally unsustainable and guarantees worsened water supply problems in the future.”
A recent report said, “From the bathtub rings around our reservoirs, to the salty Delta lapping up against our levees, there is ample evidence that in the span of just two years California’s water supply has shifted from wealth to want. The state has not formally declared a drought, but water managers are using words like ‘dire’ to describe the situation – particularly if next winter disappoints.”
Have you ever heard the story of “downstream” reporting? CBS’ Scott Pelley, ABC’s Diane Sawyer and NBC’s Brian Williams all report “downstream”, which means, they report disasters after they occur. They never “upstream” report on people who “think of solutions” before the consequences occur.
What would be the easiest, simplest and most rational solution to California’s, Texas’, Arizona’s, Nevada’s, New Mexico’s, Georgia’s and Florida’s water shortages?
How about my “upstream” solution: stop importing 100,000 legal immigrants into America every 30 days. Stop allowing employers to hire and support 20 million illegal alien migrants. Change S744 to simply enforce our immigration labor laws so those criminals would lose their jobs and go home on their own dimes. Reduce all immigration to less than 100,000 annually, which equals the “out migration” from our country, which would equal to a net gain of zero.
End of this story: we all enjoy plenty of water, no more excess immigrants, sustain our quality of life and enjoy a sustainable civilization throughout the 21st century.
Do you think it will happen? It depends on how many times you call, write and fax your Congress critters. Visit their offices. Tell them about this idea. If you don’t, your kids will see that 100 million new immigrants within 37 years. If you take action, you could change a nasty history into a positive outcome. Think of your kids.
