Illegals And America's
Drought Predicament
By Frosty Wooldridge

On many of my transcontinental bicycle treks across six continents over the past 30 years, I noticed one repeating aspect of problems in Third World countries: leaders ignore problems until they become irreversible and unsolvable.
Once those problems manifest, citizens in those countries live with the consequences, i.e., they live in misery. What kind of misery? According to the March 14, 2005 issue of Time Magazine, eight million people starve to death annually around the globe. Over 35 percent of human beings on this planet do not enjoy clean drinking water, daily!
Tuberculosis kills two million human beings annually. AIDS killed millions in Africa with millions more expected to die. In China, their government forces its citizens into one child per family; only boys. Why? Because, 50 years ago, they ignored their growing population until it exploded into 1.3 billion people; 20% of the population of the world. Such horrific numbers couldn't be sustained. Today, even with one child families, they can't solve their food, air and water dilemmas... let alone present anything but a subsistence life for most of their citizens. And so they send their masses elsewhere, like the U.S.
Do you think other countries' leaders might step up to address such problems? Let's look at the problems facing Mexico. In the last century, it grew from 50 million to 104 million. It's expected to double to 200 million within this century. It might triple. As witnessed in the past 20 years, it can't feed, clothe or house its citizensâ· so 10 (Bear-Stearns tell us more than 20 MIL, PLUS 11 MIL children) million Mexicans migrated illegally to the United States.
As Mexico doubles again, we can expect no less than 10 to 30 or 40 million more Mexican migrants flooding into the USA in the next ten years. And, thanks to the vagaries of immigration and birthrate, their numbers (Spanish language ONLY) will double inside the U.S. every five years. Do YOUR elected members of Congress understand that ?
Water Supplies Are Limited
You think it's been hot and dry this summer? So what's the problem? Short answer: water !
Two years ago, a devastating drought gripped Colorado and much of the West. Water rationing became the norm in Denver where I live. Reservoirs dropped to dangerous levels. That wouldn't have been a problem in 1990 with only 3.1 million in the state. However, in a decade, more than 1.3 million citizens moved to Colorado, where the population now hovers near 5 million... of which more than 10% are aliens, legal and illegal. Demographers expect another four to six million within 44 years. There will probably be more than twice that.
At the same time, California adds 20 million by 2035, Texas adds 12 by 2025, Florida doubles every 20 years, and Arizona will add up to four million. Check these figures out at and and
In other words, as we allow (encourage) millions to immigrate into America, we create commensurate penalties for our citizens. As if an echo or a mirror, our own leaders mimic the same actions as Third World leaders. Why? The future doesn't concern them. However, the future involves all our children, and grand-children. You have to wonder where they will flee for a better life.
Associated Press writer James McPherson on July 30, 2006 wrote a piece "Without Rain, Dakotas Dry Up." He reported, "Fields of wheat, durum and barley in the Dakotas this summer will never end up as pasta or breadâ· what is left is hot winds blowing clouds of dirt from dried-out ponds."
More than 60 percent of the United States suffers abnormally dry or drought conditions this summer. I've traveled through 47 of the lower-48 states thus far this summer. I've seen burned-up corn and pigmy crops from the lack of water. This drought stretches from Georgia to Arizona... and from Montana to Wisconsin.
Mark Svoboda, climatologist for the National Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska said, "The Dakotas are the epicenterâ·it's just a wasteland in north central South Dakota."
A South Dakota farmer, Paul Smokov, 81, said, "Conditions this summer are the worstâ·I could see it coming in May. That's the time the good Lord gives us rains, but we never got them this year. This is the worst since the 1930s."
Let's sober you up a few notches. At current legal immigration levels of 1.1 (1.8, to include "special exceptions") million annually and our own population growth momentum of 1.0 (more than 2 MIL, when "anchor-babies" are included) million annuallyâ· that equals 2.1 (almost 4 MIL) million people added to the USA annually.
Then we must add-in the illegal aliens. Reliable sources tell us that in 2006 the U.S. is gaining 4.5 MIL from the south, almost 2 MIL from China and Asia (arriving through Canada and our "leaky" seaports), and nearly 2 MIL others who simply stay in the U.S. after their visa expires. {There are some esteemed enumerators who tell us that is a low estimate.}
So, in round numbers, in 2006 we are gaining about 2 million legal aliens and perhaps 8.5 million ilegals. Yes, really. If our President decides to make another "exception" and bring in more than the 22,000 Cubans now allocated, it adds to the mix. Of course, the majority of the Hispanic-Latino illegals tend to reproduce at a rate of some 4.5 per couple... encouraged by the "anchor-baby" opportunity in the U.S. ... so their rate tends to double their numbers every five years.
Let's multiply that by what will happen in the aggregate in the next 10 years. That's something like 81 million more people requiring food and water in the U.S. alone. By the year 2026, it equals about 200 million. The growth is exponential. Meanwhile, do your two elected senators and your Congressional Representative say word one about all of this ?
In a July front page exclusive, USA Today reported the United States will add 100 million by 2040. Boy, are they underestimating the onslought. It is more likely that the U.S. population will be 700 million by 2040.
Is there a chance that America will experience commensurate rainfall to provide food and water for that added 200 million in 20 years? More to the point, will we be able to adequately feed and water the 300 million already in the USA? Is there a chance that science might produce miracle crops that grow without water? As America suffers farmland and wetland vanishing by the millions of acres for new malls, highways and housing, do you think crops might grow on concrete and asphalt? Could cows and sheep munch on fields of freeways?
Short answer: No !
In 2006 you witness a president and Congress mirroring Third World leaders. Not one single senator steps up to the microphone to speak on this growing national nightmare. The president refuses to address America's water crisis. Dick Cheney seems clueless... couldn't care less. Condi Rice, for all her brainpower, struggles under the nightmare of an irrelevant war... the conflagration in Lebanon, and the instigation coming from Syria and Iran. Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists double in numbers every three years. The presidential cabinet acts more like sycophants than knowledgeable leaders. They dink around with nits and plunge the United States into the same irreversible and unsolvable consequences now experienced in China, India and Mexico.
What choices do Americans possess in light of this frightening future ?
You can choose to stand up, speak out, dump the dangerous politicos... and promote and elect leaders who will address our country's water crisis and other accelerating problems... or your children and grand-children will suffer the same fate as hapless citizens of China, India and Mexico.
What are YOU doing today to change that trend ?
