Dave Gardner's Polar Bear in Bedroom:
After hammering on the immigration issue for the past 30 years, I am at my wits end on how to alert a complacent American citizenry as to its children’s ominous future. What’s more, I don’t think anyone understands their horrific endowment to future generations of our civilization, i.e., our kids. Worse, I don’t think the American majority cares a twit!
For a fact, I know the U.S. Congress and the past five presidents did not and our current president does not understand the final ramifications of unrelenting immigration. They stand blind, deaf, dumb and stupid to the accelerating drama within our civilization.
At the current rate of legal and illegal immigration, plus their children, our country will watch the addition of 72 million immigrants, mostly from third world countries within 24 years. Do you get that? Do you comprehend the ramifications of that number? Do you appreciate the environmental impact? Can you even engage an infinitesimal understanding of the sociological impact? How about the cultural impact? Have you give any moment to the quality of life impact of adding 72 million immigrants? How about the U.S. standard of living impact? How about water, energy, species extinction and pollution impact? How about carbon footprint as well as ecological footprint?
To verify what I write about, visit Dr. Steven Camarata at www.cis.org in Washington DC. He states that, “1.3 million legal immigrants arrive annually into the United States. In turn, they birth 900,000 babies annually.”
Additionally, 800,000 illegal alien migrants successfully breach our borders annually according to the U.S. Border Patrol. That includes 350,000 to 400,000 pregnant women that birth anchor babies. About 80 percent of them arrive from Mexico, but realize that Mexico doubled from 50 million to 104 million in the last century. They expect to add another 35 to 40 million by mid century. Thus, the line of Mexicans starving or suffering for a better life in the USA grows ever larger and more desperate.
Note: I am not counting 450,000 H-1B, H-2B and L-1 visas given to foreign workers as green card holders, which I leave out because no one cares a twit about their impact—certainly not the Congress or the average citizen.
Those Americans stand angry at 15 million unemployed and 42 million subsisting on food stamps, but they remain too disengaged to connect the dots as to what causes their predicament, i.e., unending immigration and outsourcing of jobs via our U.S. Congress!
Thus, we import a total of 1.3 million + 900,000 babies+ 800,000 illegal migrants for a grand total of 3.0 million annually. If you take that number since 2008 when we reached 300 million people and multiply it out to 2035—that equals 81 million added immigrants and their children. If you take that figure from 2011, you will understand that we shall reach an added 72 million immigrants within the next 24 years.
“US Population Projections” by Fogel/Martin www.fairus.org show us adding 138 million people by 2050.
Does anyone understand that 72 million third world immigrants from Somalia, Ethiopia, India, Sudan, Congo, Nigeria, Kenya, China, Mexico, Honduras, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Sudan, Morocco—arrive from cultures of illiteracy and poverty. What one word defines a third world culture? What keeps it poor? What keeps it starving? What makes it so bad that no hope can be realized? Answer: culture, illiteracy, and babies! Those countries grow their poverty at a rate of 80 million added net gain annually.
Yet, we think we can absorb their exploding numbers by immigrating in excess of 3.0 million annually. Let Roy Beck show you exactly what that means with his five minute video: “Immigration, poverty and Gum Balls.” It will show you what we’re in for: In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls”, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG, graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation. Take five minutes to see for yourself:
Renowned economist Mike Folkerth said, “I believe that within 20 years, America will have been reduced to permanent 3rd world status. And, all because the human mind is not wired to grasp the provable statement, “Exponential growth in finite world is physically impossible.”
Poverty begets poverty! Do you understand that today, in our major cities, high school students drop out at a rate of 7,000 per day, or 1 student every 26 seconds, as reported by Brian Williams at NBC? What did I say defines a third world country? Answer: illiteracy, culture, babies. Heavily immigrant overwhelmed Detroit, Michigan suffers a 76 percent high school dropout/flunkout rate. Los Angeles runs 60 to 70 percent dropout rates. Need I say more?
We cannot stay abreast of the sheer numbers of culturally poor immigrants or their children. We cannot sustain our civilization as to education, medical or standard of living. The only direction we can go:
down and still further down. Don’t believe me?
Take a look at this 10 minute video again by Roy Beck: “Immigration by the numbers—off the chart” by Roy Beck This 10 minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a word “Mind boggling!” www.NumbersUSA.org
Fellow Americans, if I were president of the United States and if I led the U.S. Congress—I would suspend all immigration immediately. We cannot sustain another 72 or 81 million immigrants culturally, environmentally, medically, resources, energy, pollution or otherwise.
I cannot do this myself. I need your help. I need to carry this message to “60 Minutes” ; “Charlie Rose” ; “Good Morning America” ; “Today Show” ; “Bill Moyers” ; and a hundred other TV, radio and print media. You need to email those media outlets and demand they address the immigration equation. Folks, we stand in nostril-deep water greater than anyone understands.
We either collectively stop mass immigration into this civilization, or it’s a guaranteed fact, that we won’t survive the approaching “Perfect Storm” of environmental, cultural, linguistic, energy or quality of life ‘waves’ screaming toward us—while our options degrade as our numbers rise.
Just as Galileo told the Pope—that the Earth revolves around the sun—and not vice versa—I write with certitude. I invite you to engage your senators, mayors, governors, House members and media to engage the most important issue of our time.
If we allow that 81 million added immigrants and on to 138 million people to manifest their numbers in our country—I feel sorry for future generations because as a world traveler in the third world, I’ve already seen what’s coming—and it anguishes me to no end.
If we wait, if we ponder, that 100 million will manifest in our country in a blink of an eye. Once it happens, our children become victims of our apathy and our stupidity.

If any of us, no matter what our race, creed or color might be, refuse to engage our U.S. Congress as we have not for 30 years as to the population/immigration equation-our children will find themselves living in a terribly degraded America where the American Dream will be described by the history books as a 'fleeting fantasy' from the era of 1950 to 2010.
