anyone in the United States understand or comprehend what America will look
like in 2050 “IF” we continue endless immigration into our country? Does any leader possess an inkling of the
ramifications of adding the projected 100 million immigrants, their kids and
correct, at the current rate of immigration legalized by the 1986 Reagan
amnesty, we continue on course to add 100 million immigrants from all over the
world. They arrive legally at 1.0
million annually. They birth 900,000
babies among their numbers annually. (Source: Dr. Steven Camorata, www.cis.org
) With chain migration, that means each “new”
American may invite 10 of his or her relatives to join them with
“family-reunification.” If the current S744 amnesty bill passes, your US
Congress jumped that 1.0 million to 2.0 million legal immigrants annually.
the math! Any way you cut it, that means
America will experience an avalanche, a human tsunami, or simply the biggest
wave of humanity ever to hit our country or any country, ever. We will grow from our current 316 million to
well over 438 million people within 37 years.
The extra 38 million will come from our own “population momentum.” These figures stem from our country reaching
300 million in October of 2007. We grow
by 3.1 million annually.
it going to look like? Answer: it will
become ugly on multiple levels—environmentally, sociologically, linguistically,
culturally, quality of life and downgraded standard of living—for starters.
Parts 1 through 5 will cover what we face.
of all, 100 million immigrants will equal our adding 20 of our most populated

them, feeding them and finding jobs for them.
in 2013, seven states face shortages: Georgia, Florida, Texas, New Mexico,
Arizona, Nevada and California. But
Georgia will grow from 8.2 million to 16.4 million. Florida expects to grow from 18 million to 36
million. For the whopper fact of all,
California expects to jump from 38 million to 58 million.
cities face resembling present-day Mumbai, India; or Tokyo, Japan; or Paris,
France; or Shanghai, China—bursting at the seams with 50 to100 mile traffic
jams, people smooched into 200 square foot apartments rising out of the ground
like mindless stalagmites.
rivers will run with endless chemicals from industrial, farm, human and acid
rain pollution. Our National Parks will
become so crowded that you will be forced to draw a lottery number in order to
last bit of arable land and wilderness will be destroyed by what scientists
call “ecological footprint.” In
Ethiopia, it takes .4 (4/10ths) of an acre of land to feed, water and house a
person. In the USA, it takes 25.4 acres of land to support one person. (Source:www.allspecis.org)
those 100 million immigrants, we must destroy 2.54 BILLION acres of land. That, in turn, guarantees accelerating our
current 250 species suffering extinction annually in the lower 48 to double
that number to 500 annually which will mean 5,000 species a decade suffering
extinction at the hands of our encroachment on the natural world. (Source: Department of Interior, U.S.)
those enormous human numbers impact the carbon footprint and impact the “water
footprint”, we face water predicaments that will become unsolvable and
irreversible. We face water wars, water
confrontations, water irrigation problems heretofore never imagined.
giant aquifers like the Ogallala will dry up leaving us with no irrigation of

quality of life cannot help but degrade into severe limitations as to hunting,
fishing, wildlife extermination, energy exhaustion and resource depletion.
talk about energy: we hit Peak Oil in
2011. We face the last 50 percent of all oil remaining on the planet. It takes more energy units to pump it and
less energy units out of the ground.
Finally, at some point, we will be left with little oil at staggering
prices—but a 438 million population to feed.
Of sobering note, the world will have added 3.1 billion humans to feed,

guess how much damage our carbon footprint will wreak havoc on our oceans with
acidification and warming of the waters?
My guess: we face annual Hurricane Sandy’s and Katrina’s. More tornadoes will mow humans down at an accelerating
I’ve only covered the tip of the iceberg of what we bequeath to our children.
I sit here with the scientific facts, my own world travels having seen the 12
largest cities on the planet and my own scientific experiences in Antarctica—I
am appalled that the American people and our leaders gallop into this added 100
million more immigrants without so much as a shout, whimper or cry.
kids will curse our stupidity, arrogance and outright disregard for their
futures. My own two U.S. Senators
understand what we face because I spent 45 minutes explaining the facts to
their staffs, but they voted to add 2.0 million legal immigrants annually to
make our fate arrive even faster than 37 years.

Why don’t we demand a national discussion?
we refuse to act, remain too apathetic to act, or don’t act—the S744 Amnesty
Bill will pass and add that 100 million immigrants to this country in a blink
of time. God help our children when they
inherit our legacy of 100 million immigrants.
