Let’s get down to brass tacks! Let’s deal with America’s most troubling problem by presenting our citizens with options. A recent CNN poll showed 87 percent of Americans want illegal immigration stopped.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform features, “SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF TRUE COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM.”
One FAIR spokesperson said, “It is critical to distinguish the reform that the public seeks from the deceptive package of measures that the immigration lobby is peddling. We feel it is time to speak out on true reform.”
Overwhelming and irrefutable facts show illegal and massive unrestricted immigration harm our country. We face gridlocked and air polluted cities, environmental degradation, crime, health care problems and education nightmares. Massive immigration creates costs too high for American working families.
While pro-open borders people strut their indignation and emotional charges, political winds change in all sectors of America. We must deal with this immigration quandary in favor of American citizens and all immigrants who play by the rule of law. We cannot allow America to become the doormat for illegality from an endless line of exploding out of the Third World. FAIR promotes seven immutable principles:
First Principle: Cut the Numbers
“Any level of illegal immigration is unacceptable, and current legal immigrant admissions of one million person annually are entirely too many,” FAIR stated. “Any measure that increases either illegal or legal immigration violates this principle. Immigration is a discretionary public policy. Its primary purpose, since our founding, is to advance the interests and security of the nation.”
How much more simple can that fact be? We must ensure the viability of our nation. By doing that, irresponsible nations like Mexico and others around the world will be forced to deal with their citizens and create solutions.
Second Principle: No Amnesty or Mass Guest-Worker Program
“The 1986 amnesty was a failure; rather than reducing illegal immigration, it led to an increase,” FAIR stated. “Any new amnesty measure will further weaken respect for our immigration laws. Therefore, all amnesty measures must be defeated.”
We must enforce our immigration laws in the first place. Otherwise, illegals coming from around the world laugh at us as they use and abuse us. Illegal guest workers are not a benefit to our nation which has been proven over and over with their consequences experienced in every sector of our society. We stand for law or we sink into lawlessness.
Additionally, illegals are no longer picking fruit or doing farm labor. They displace and depress wages for America’s Middle Class in construction, painting, dry wall, landscape, fast food, janitorial, roofing, trucking and more.
Third Principle: Protect Wages and Standards of Living
“Immigration policy should not be permitted to undermine opportunities for America’s poor and vulnerable citizens to improve their working conditions and wages,” FAIR stated. “The need for guest workers must be determined by objective indicators that a shortage of workers exists, i.e., extreme wages inflation in a particular sector of the labor market.”
“The current systems accepts self-serving employers who seek lower labor costs as protections of American workers,” FAIR stated. “True reform requires an objective test of labor shortage demonstrations by rising wages to attract American workers.”
Who among us wants to see our working poor--as typified in New Orleans where 37 percent of our citizens live below the poverty level--further degraded by allowing illegal aliens to work here against our laws and our citizens? At what point do we take care of our own before taking care of Mexico’s responsibilities?
Fourth Principle: Major Upgrade in Interior Enforcement, Led by Strong Employer Penalties
“Employers who knowingly employ unauthorized workers are the magnet that attracts illegal entry into the U.S.,” FAIR stated. “”These employers are complicit in the illegal alien cartel activity of smuggling, trafficking, harboring, employing and must be punished. We must reform the current system by enforcing employer sanctions and fully punishing employers who break the laws of this country. These punishments will be fines, jailing for repeat offenders, and loss of corporate charters.”
FAIR expects a level playing field for American workers. They demand illegal alien employers be handcuffed, prosecuted and suffer ‘hard time’.
“The Basic Pilot Employment Verification program must be made mandatory and at no extra cost to employers,” FAIR stated. “Effective enforcement on the border and the interior of the country requires that staffing, equipment, detention facilities, and removal capabilities be adequate to fully meet current needs.”
Fifth Principle: Stop Special Interest Asylum Abuse
“Reforming the refugee and asylum system means returning to the original purpose and definition of the program: “any person who is unable or unwilling to avail himself or herself of the protection that country because of persecution or a well founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group, or political opinion...America must honor its responsibilities to protect people who are fleeing political persecution as defined by U.S. and international law.”
At the same time, treating aliens illegally residing in the country the same as foreigners on legal visas for purposes of the Temporary Protected Status designation is illogical and a form of amnesty that must be ended.
Sixth Principle: Immigration Time Out
“We must restore moderation to legal immigration,” FAIR stated. “Beginning with the Jordan Commission in 1995, we need to restrict to the minimum consistent with stabilizing the U.S. population.”
To continue a massive influx of three million illegal and one million legal immigrants annually is a recipe for population disaster. A sustainable number, from this journalist’s investigations points to a maximum of 100,000 immigrants a year, only if that creates a stable population. Anything more is sure to create an unsustainable population in the long run.
Seventh Principle: Equal Under the Law
“There should be no favoritism toward or discrimination against any person on the basis of race, color, creed or nationality,” FAIR stated. “All admission of immigrants should come within a single, stable ceiling which is periodically reviewed on the basis of a reasoned, explicit goal of achieving population stability. We should abolish preferences such as the Cuban Adjustment Act.”
The facts show that the U.S. has limits of oil, natural gas, water and farmland to grow food for our citizens. The key phrase is: ‘Carrying Capacity’. We either work for and attain a sustainable society or suffer the consequences.

From: Frosty Wooldridge
This three minute interview with Adam Schrager on “Your Show” May 4, 2008, NBC Channel 9 News, addresses the ramifications of adding 120 million people to USA in 35 years and six million people to Colorado as to water shortages, air pollution, loss of farmland, energy costs and degradation of quality of life. In the interview, Frosty Wooldridge explains the ramifications of adding 120 million people to the USA in 35 years. He advances new concepts such as a “Colorado Carrying Capacity Policy”; “Colorado Environmental Impact Policy”; “Colorado Water Usage Policy”; “Colorado Sustainable Population Policy”. Nationally, the USA needs a "National Sustainable Population Policy" to determine the carrying capacity of this nation for the short and long term. Wooldridge is available for interviews on radio and TV having interviewed on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX.
