RE: “Coloradans key in fixing immigration” by U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, Golden Transcript, August 8, 2013
U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet’s latest commentary about fixing our “broken” immigration policy fails to inform Coloradans that amnesty bill S744 presents a free pass to as few as 12 million and as many as 20 million people who walked over our borders in violation of our laws. Minimum cost for amnesty: $6 trillion.
That amnesty will jump America’s population, at a minimum, to another 33 million people, net gain, within the next 10 years. That doesn’t count their offspring or chain-migration from those amnestied migrants. It increases green-card visas by more than 200,000 annually when we suffer 14 million unemployed, another 7 million underemployed, and 47 million Americans subsisting on food stamps because they cannot secure jobs.
Not only that, Bennet’s bill jumped legal immigration from its current 1.0 million annually to 1.5 million — thus flooding this country with an added 100 million immigrants (including children and chain migration) by 2050 — a scant 37 years from now.
Today, seven states face water shortages. Our energy resources face horrific price increases as Peak Oil manifests. Our congested and polluted cities do not need another 33 million people driving cars, with exploding costs to heat homes and resultant pollution. As we add more people, the dangerous phenomenon called “climate change” will accelerate, with more than 100 million more people added to America by 2050 as to burning oil, coal and other resources for energy.
We must come to terms with stopping mass immigration and move toward reducing all immigration to fewer than 100,000 people annually rather than 100,000 people every 30 days (currently), which will be jumped to 125,000 monthly with Bennet’s bill. Otherwise, we face horrific consequences o
n multiple levels as we overload and overwhelm our civilization. Quality of life and standard of living will be degraded to the point that the American way of life will not be available to future generations.
