Carrying Capacity Network Action Alert
As we indicated earlier, one purpose of the horrendous McCain-Kennedy
bill (S.2611 passed by the Senate) was to shift the tone of the
immigration debate as far in the direction of open borders as
possible. Well, judging from the latest developments in Washington,
we were clearly correct.
IS UNLIMITED: American companies would set up employment agencies in foreign countries where they would hire as many "guest" workers as they want.
IS NOT SAFE: Illegal immigrants would have to return to their
home countries for only one week (no penalties if they don't!)
and apply for "guest" worker status without paying any
penalty, and could return to the U.S. without background checks!
ILLEGAL ALIENS WOULD HAVE PREFERENCES AMERICAN CITIZENS DO NOT HAVE: If they leave the U.S. they would be paid all their accrued Social Security benefits in one lump sum. Americans have to wait until they retire to receive some benefits, paid out over time.
SHOCKING NEW THREAT
Legalizing UNLIMITED numbers of illegal aliens effectively ELMINATES
HOW TO STOP THE PENCE-HUTCHINSON AMNESTY
Let your Representatives and Senators know that you aren't fooled.
Call/fax and tell them that the Pence-Hutchinson ploy is little
more than a thinly disguised amnesty for UNLIMITED NUMBERS of
illegal immigrants and a massive immigration acceleration bill.
DEMAND A MORATORIUM
In many ways, the current situation we are in is a direct result of the flawed policy of "immigration management" pursued by two other immigration reform organizations: FAIR and NumbersUSA. By focusing almost exclusively on illegal immigration and paying only lip service to legal immigration reduction, they have allowed the Open Borders Lobby to take the offensive. If your only problem with immigration is that it's illegal, the Open Borders Lobby will always have the same response: legalize it!
Only by advocating an immigration moratorium can we hope to avoid this trap and put the other side on the defensive. There is absolutely no reason why our current program of mass immigration, with all of the stress it puts on our environment and our economy, should be continued. Thus, calling the entire program into question by pushing a moratorium forces the other side to explain why we need any immigration at all.
A NEW WEAPON FOR CCN
Through the generosity, devotion, and creativity of one CCN member, we are able to give you a Great Weapon to help win this Battle: THE FACTS!! Use the enclosed "fact card" to defeat the nonsensical arguments of the Open Borders Crowd. Order more to educate others.
THE COST OF BATTLE
Recently, the San Diego Union Tribune reported on August 8 that "the environmental establishment has mostly abandoned talking about the nation's growing populace, especially as it relates to immigration." Apparently, many of these so-called "environmentalists" think the issue is simply too "divisive" to bring up.
Meanwhile, as the article itself noted, 100,000 acres of wetland are lost each year due to development, 40 percent of the nation's rivers and 46 percent of its lakes are too polluted for swimming or fishing, and 6,700 species remain endangered, mostly because of habitat loss. Obviously, immigration induced population growth is taking its toll!
At CCN, we are dedicated to actually doing something about the environment, but we can't do it alone. Please consider that our Herculean (and thus far successful) efforts this year to stop the Amnesty have drained our accounts! CCN depends on your contributions for support.
