STUDY HIGHLIGHTS IMMIGRATION FLOOD
April 3, 2008
Most Americans do not understand nor do they grasp their ominous fate as to relentless, unending and massive legal and illegal immigration into their country. In reality, most Americans could care less. They remain numb to the Iraq War, a $9 trillion federal debt, home foreclosures, energy crisis and the price of gasoline.
Americans can ignore reality for quite some time, but reality will not ignore them.
The recent PEW Report projected 138 million people added to the USA in 40 years. We’ll add 100 million by 2035, a lightning bolt 27 years from now! One in five “hyphenated-Americans” will be foreign born.
Dr. Otis Graham summed it up in his book: “Unguarded Gates: A History of America’s Immigration Crisis.” He wrote, “Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide, but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all--ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated planet by 2050.”
Last week, a brilliant national writer for www.vdare.com, Mr. Donald A. Collins penned a distressing column on America’s ugly future, ”Population Reference Bureau Study Highlights Coming Immigration Flood.”
fellow Americans, your livelihoods, your security, your social harmony
and yes, your very lives of you and your family stand in the crosshairs
of the immigration issue,” Collins said. “A report just
issued by the Population Reference
Bureau, ‘Managing Migration: The Global Challenge’
shows how immigration has been raised to record levels—and may
soon veer completely out of control.”
Dr. Philip Martin, a professor at UC California and editor of Migration News, presents a monthly summary of this issue. His collaborating co-author is Gottfried Zurcher, director general of International Center for Migration Policy Development in Vienna, Austria, an entity supported by 30 European governments to improve migration management.
Their report begins by saying:
"The number of international migrants is at an all-time high. There were 191 million migrants in 2005, which means that three percent of the world's people left their country of birth or citizenship for a year or more. The number of international migrants in industrialized countries more than doubled between 1985 and 2005, from almost 55 million to 120 million."
The report acknowledges that "most of the world's 6.6 billion people never cross a national border; most live and die near their place of birth. Those who cross national borders usually move to nearby countries, for example, from Mexico to the United States, or from Turkey to Germany."
But, as long time advocates of reform such as VDARE.com and FAIRUS.org (Federation for American Immigration Reform) have been pointing out, the numbers who do move astound any demographer:
largest flow of migrants is from less developed to more developed
countries. In 2005, 62 million migrants from developing countries
moved to more developed countries...large flows of people also move
from one industrialized country to another, from Canada to the United
States, for example, and much smaller flows move from more developed
to less developed countries, such as people from Japan who work in
or retire to Thailand."
Interestingly, "almost as many migrants (61 million) moved from one developing country to another, such as from Indonesia to Malaysia."
The report notes: "The United Nation's 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts that 'everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.' However, the right to emigrate does not give migrants a right to immigrate, and most migrants are not welcomed unconditionally into the countries to which they move."
Collins said, “This PRB study pulls no punches: it names open borders advocates, such as the Catholic Church, whose adherents are increasingly the undereducated of the developing world, and the World Bank with excess populations to serve and the impossible mantra of perpetual growth as good for both sending and receiving countries.
“The other side is also noted. In the US, the PB report cites specifically FAIR, which "argues that unskilled newcomers hurt low-skilled US workers, have negative environmental effects, and threaten established US cultural values." FAIR proposes that annual immigration levels must be set by need analysis—not greed paralysis.”
The PRB study notes:
"Since the growth of world population now occurs mainly in developing nations, the world's demographic shifts are soon to be major….Africa and Europe have roughly equal populations today, but by 2050, Africa at 737 million people is projected to have three times more residents. If Africa remains poorer than Europe, the two continents' diverging demographic trajectories may propel young people from overcrowded cities such as Cairo and Lagos to move to Berlin and Rome."
Collins said, “As the migration implodes into cities around the world and because of the income disparities between rich and poor nations, desperate migrants will accept what the authors call 3-D jobs (e.g. dirty, difficult, and dangerous) and today's creation of false documentation will seem petty in amounts.
“Europeans feel the rising numbers of Muslims as riots increase and other disturbances flare in France and elsewhere. Threats against journalists and cartoonists by Muslims have highlighted the results. Many in France and elsewhere see the 1975 Jean Raspail novel, The Camp of the Saints, where he talks about an armada of the world’s poor resettling in France: “You don’t know my people—the squalor, superstitions, the fatalistic sloth that they’ve wallowed in for generations. You don’t know what you’re in for if that fleet of brutes ever lands in your lap. Everything will change I n this country of yours. They will swallow you up!”
Raspail’s prediction manifested as France accepted over six million Middle Eastern immigrants that have created stagnant ghettos, social chaos and dissension in France.
The “Population Reference Bureau” took its traditional scholarly and temperate tone with this report, but even the PRB's report writers have let the urgency of the situation seep through their usually more indolent writing style.

is the time for action by the United States, as this writer has been
advocating for years,” Collins said. “However, our political
leadership, particularly at the Federal level, has been adamantly
against our own citizens and in thrall to greedy employers, ideological
and ethnic advocacy groups.”
Collins continued, “Now that our country is heading into a serious recession, the immigrant flood (both legal and illegal) may temporarily abate. But the Democratic Congress will surely be pushing amnesty for the 20 million-plus illegal aliens here now—a move which will attract millions more over the next decades. And the new President will be ready to sign anything Congress sends to him or her, since none of the three candidates has even seen an immigrant they don't want to import.
“By 2050 the country will wake up to its overpopulation hangover in the direst terms. With at least 150-200 million more added to our present 310 million--the rule of law, the social security system and all the legal benefits of today's America will become a distant dream.”
