The global population is skyrocketing and depending more and more on the United States to help provide a stable source of food as it has done for over one-hundred years. However, due to America's increasing population (due in large part to out-of-control immigration), the United States is unable to fulfill this role. In fact, the United States is losing more than 1 MILLION acres of arable land per year due to immigration-driven population growth.
For the first time in its history the United States is close to being a net importer of food. America's rising population requires more and more food, while at the same time, this rising population requires more and more land, thereby reducing America's ability to produce food.
At a time when the world needs America's plains of grain and pastures of cattle, the United States is instead importing foodstuffs. This is a direct result of America's refusal to reign in its out-of-control immigration system.
A recent USA Today op-ed talks about this subject. Due to the earth's rapidly increasing population global meat consumption will double by 2050. On top of that, each pound of extra meat will require at least 6 additional pounds of livestock feed. In the future farmers will need 17% more wather than the world now has available. Simply put, the world's current population growth is not sustainable and the United States' inability to produce excess food has a negative on the world as a whole.
