Each day, California adds
1,655 people, net gain, to its population. That horrific human overload
stems from endless legal and illegal immigration. California stands
as the most immigrant dominated state in the country. At 38 million
in 2012, it expects to add 20 million people by 2040. Most of
them immigrants and their children. (Source: www.capsweb.org)
This is not about race, creed or color. It’s about sustainable numbers.
It’s about water, energy, resources, food, transports and quality of
life. We need a discussion on how many people California and the
United States can continue importing from foreign lands where world
citizens refuse to be responsible for their own birth rates. Frankly,
Europe, Australia and Canada must engage the same question.
By adding another 20 million to California, not only will it overload
their water supplies, but it will deplete land, energy and resources.
It will change the very culture, language and essence of California
and ultimately, America. We must ask ourselves as Americans if
we want to continue on this path, can we sustain this path, will future
generations be able to enjoy quality of life and a decent standard of
living with such a massive human overload? Answer: most definitely
Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform,
www.FAIRUS.org , spoke about it in his latest report.
“California Governor Brown vetoed a bill which would have prevented
local authorities from honoring federal requests for detention of illegal
aliens arrested for other crimes in the state,” said Stein. “If AB 1081,
also known as the Trust Act, had become law, deportable criminal aliens
would have been turned loose in communities all across California with
the likely result that many would have reoffended.
“The last minute veto announcement is a rare victory for law-abiding
Californians. The powerful lobby dedicated to protecting illegal aliens
mobilized to push for the Governor’s signature on AB 1081 in the final
weeks leading up to the veto deadline. House Democrats from California,
including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, unions, day laborer groups,
clergy members, and even actor Martin Sheen voiced support for the fundamentally
flawed and dangerous legislation.
“Illegal alien advocacy groups and politicians pushed the bill in order
to prevent the successful use of the Secure Communities initiative and
thwart the federal government’s ability to hold and remove illegal aliens,
even those arrested for or convicted for serious or violent crimes.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton has said
such policies in other jurisdictions including Cook County, Illinois,
and Santa Clara, California “undermine public safety and hinder ICE’s
ability to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.”
“Families of the victims of criminal aliens focused their pain and outrage
on stopping this bill. The Shaw family of Los Angeles, in particular,
is due credit for helping stop AB 1081. Their continued concern over
California’s sanctuary policies and efforts to prevent future family
tragedies led them to speak out against the legislation. They helped
put a face that of their late son Jamiel Shaw, Jr. on the real consequences
of turning criminal aliens loose into communities.
“FAIR is encouraged that Governor Brown listened to the pleas of the
victims’ families and sheriffs across California who urged him to veto
this dangerous legislation. However, Brown indicated that he would be
open to working with lawmakers to develop and implement a narrower version
of the bill to allow “minor” offenders to avoid deportation.”
Gov. Brown Grants Driver's Licenses to Illegal Aliens
Defeat for Public Safety and Common Sense
“While California Governor Brown made an important veto in the case
of AB 1081, he caved into pressure from the illegal alien lobby by signing
a bill that will give driver’s licenses to illegal aliens benefiting
from President Obama’s administrative amnesty program,” said Stein.
“AB 2189 had been sitting on Governor Brown’s desk since it passed the
California legislature in late August. As with other pending immigration
legislation, Brown waited until the last possible minute to act.
“With this law, illegal aliens who receive deferred action under Obama’s
amnesty plan will have access to California driver’s licenses. This
means that the estimated 450,000 illegal aliens in the state who are
or will be eligible for amnesty will now get yet another benefit for
breaking U.S. immigration law. The law was introduced by Assemblyman
Gil Cedillo’s (D-Los Angeles), who has spent years pushing an even broader
bill to give driver’s license to all illegal aliens in the state.
“In addition to adding yet another benefit to the laundry list of services
state taxpayers provide for illegal aliens, the law is an outright threat
to public safety in all 50 states. California will give licenses to
those illegal aliens who obtain work authorization from the Obama administration,
ignoring the loopholes and lack of security inherent in the amnesty
program. The administration’s plan allows illegal aliens to skip in-person
interviews and submit copies of identification and other documents
there’s no guarantee that amnesty applicants will even be who they say
“California is the first state to expand driver’s license eligibility
to illegal aliens since the announcement of Obama’s amnesty policy.
Other states like Arizona and Nebraska have reaffirmed policies barring
illegal aliens from state benefits and identification. New Mexico and
Washington already allowed illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses.”
We need to ask ourselves as a country if we want to continue mass immigration
that will lead to these enormous numbers of people that have to be watered,
fed, housed, warmed, transported and sustained? Can we do it on
a level of resource usage that typical Americans maintain? Answer:
it is mathematically impossible.
