A succession of scientific and governmental commissions for three decades have come to the same conclusion - that there is a scientific rationale for stabilizing the U.S. population in order to meet environmental goals. While national environmental groups have dramatically changed their stance on U.S. population stabilization, government and scientific bodies have not.
How much natural habitat and farmland did your state and city destroy in the last decade to accommodate expanding populations and individual appetites for developed land?
"[I]t's phony to say 'I'm for the environment but not for limiting immigration…'"
-Sen Gaylord Nelson, Founder of Earth Day
Those environmentalists who think we can double or triple U.S. population without wiping out wildlife and scalping our last wildernesses, are living in a fool's paradise....
Some of the devastating environmental impacts of illegal immigration through these protected areas include:
The Park Service has closed the ohono O'odham Indian Reservation, Organ Pipe National Monument, and Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge due to the "unacceptable level of risk to the public and staff" from the "high level of illegal activity going on."
Change the Numbers is an interactive tool that displays the impact of high immigration on population numbers, oil usage, carbon footprint, and available green space. Users can set their own annual levels of both legal and illegal immigration, and Change the Numbers will then recalculate the impact based on the entries.
