Skip to comments.Shock: 80% of U.S. population growth is from immigrants, resources being sucked dry
Posted on 07/30/2014 2:32:34 PM PDT by Nachum
A group dedicated to saving the planet by cutting runaway population increases is raising a new and shocking issue in Washingtons bitter fight over immigration reform: Most of the nations population growth is from immigrants, and they are consuming resources dangerously fast. According to Negative Population Growth Inc., 80 percent of the growth in U.S. population comes from immigration, legal, illegal and among American-born children of immigrants. With increased population, we see a direct increase in the problems our nation faces on a daily basis: pollution, over-consumption, traffic gridlock, crowded schools and hospitals, overburdened social services, unemployment, crumbling infrastructure, urban

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Just more proof that liberals are certifiable. Like Mark Levin once said, they are fanatical about global warming yet have no issues with Islamic fanatics getting their hands on nukes. “Oh yes, nuclear bombs, that will be wonderful for the environment. Nuclear fallout, radiation does wonders for life.”
Americans want their contraceptives. Chemical castration for everybody!
“crowded schools and hospitals, overburdened social services, unemployment, crumbling infrastructure”
What do you get when you put 2lbs of dung in a one pound bag?? Same thing when you over load your country with debris and cast offs from foreign lands.
I don’t know why this is a shock. It has been the case for almost two decades. In 1970 one in 21 was foreign-born; today, it is one in 8 the highest in 90 years; and within a decade it will be one in 7, the highest in our history. In 1970 there were 9.7 million foreign born; today there are almost 45 million foreign-born.
Or they get all worked up over “the environment” but have no problem with 12+ million “consumers” who happen to be here illegally
Not to mention they overwhelmingly tend to settle in big cities, increasing the problems mentioned. Pushing out the productive people further and further out while paving over good farmland and turning charming little towns into manufactured suburbs.

No, no, according to Pelosi, it is AMERICANS over age 55 that use entirely too much of our healthcare resources. I guess the illegals deserve our resources more than those of us who actually WORKED and created those financial resources! /s
Immigrants come here to work, build businesses, MAKE a better life for themselves and their children.
Criminal alien invaders come here to TAKE whatever they can ... they’re just imported gibsmedats.
America is being colonized. We are being replaced.
Nobody highlights ridiculous arguments by the left like him.
We are missing an opportunity here. UNKO how his greatness likes to divide and conquor. Well, we can do it in reverse. We need to get the word out to the inner city urban outdoorsmen that this waive of immigrants is going to displace them on the welfare and snap rolls because there is only so much money to go around. Furthermore, since they are viewed as a far larger group, they will supplant them as a principal voting bloc for the dems. Then we need to arm them up and step back and watch the fun.
Americans aren’t reproducing. Not including immigrants, our birthrate is 1.7-1.8.
Immigrants from third world countries increase their family carbon footprint, energy use, pollution output, and trash generated by a order of magnitude after they get to America. Global warming Democrats don’t care. Huh.
John 10:1 —
Very truly, I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold by the gate but climbs in by another way is a thief and a bandit
So what. Since 2000 we have added 38 million people. The nations total population will cross the 400 million mark in 2051, reaching 420.3 million in 2060. In 1970 our population was 203 million.
Yep. We have an orderly immigration process, through which productive people can enter the country LEGALLY, do good things, and become citizens.
Then there is the anarchic horde of terrorists, thugs, and gibsmedats that 0bama and the democrats are inviting to illegally cross the border and cause chaos.
Please remember that this isn’t an issue about immigration.
Once again the DEMS throw a bone and predictable Republicans have knee jerk reactions.
This is about TREASON. I love immigrants. I am one. Obama is betraying the welfare of this country, under the noble guise of immigration and “children”. Let’s see the “children”.
Call him out on his lies, under the guise of love and concern, and we will demask Obama.
This is treason. The criminal underworld is in charge . Honduras has the HIGHEST MURDER per capita rates in the world. They are a narco nation, with known Islamic Radical terrorists and Mexican cartel ties. Obama has repeatedly placed our nation at risk of terrorists he enables.
Not only does the Administration know this, they helped create the Honduran Narco Nation.

Based on Black/Hispanic or Black/Somali fights in schools, I think they’re onto the scam.
i know immigration history enough.
we did not federally fund europeans coming over here. they had to have money, and jobs lined up, and a place to live with contact info to check up on, AND be healthy. we didn’t let very sick/contagious ones in, they were not let in sick. and regardless the limits let in were far, far less per year than anything flooding the country now. hundreds of thousands a year compared to millions now.
now it seems we are totally funding them for everything and we’re evil if we don’t believe govt money - aka forced charity (no such thing) should be poured onto these people.
this is not the same thing as immigration in the past.
“Most of the nations population growth is from immigrants, and they are consuming resources dangerously fast.”
Of course they are. They come here to take, to leech, to consume. They DO NOT come here to contribute or to build. They don’t give one small damn for America or being American.
if we never had abortion, you’d be incorrect.
but when your own government makes life tougher to raise families, the number of children per family often decreases. it isn’t rocket science.
You voted for it America.
Now pay up. :)
Will a person assimilate and become a productive citizen. Unfortunately, the many illegal immigrants are not encouraged to assimilate and become productive. Example: adoption of English as their language. AND they are still loyal to the countries of origin. Example: the Reconquista movement.
Gee that stat is a shock (sarc)
I agree with your numbers but they need a little analysis. Japan, China, and Western Europe are facing a demographic catastrophy and we are not far behind them. We have an aging population and need young immigrants to sustain the system otherwise it will collapse. The problem is our welfare system as Europes attracts many that are not productive and become a drain on the states resources. As such they do not help the demographic problem but make it worse, but there is an answer.
We must encourage the immigration from societies that are willing to assimilate into our nation and adopt our culture as did the English, Irish, Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, Italians, Chinese Spanish, Portuguese etc. We are a nation of immigrants with a common American Dream. New immigrants must not be allowed any social benefits except emergency medical care. When they are full citizens and this must be a lengthy process as in the past, they would receive full benefits as all other citizens. There should be no provisions to educate them in their own language. If they are not willing to integrate into our society we do not need them.
I hope many nations send us their Engineers, Doctors, Tradesmen, Educators,(no lawyers please) and those that perform manual labor. All must be willing to grab the American Dream and live it in English. If we do this we will again be the "Shining City on the Hill" that President Reagan spoke about.
ps English and Spanish is spoken in my home but everyone speaks English as either a first or second language. My wife came here legally, her father paid out of State Tuition when she went to the University of Texas El Paso. She did it the legal way. It took 19 years for her brother to become a citizen because he did it the legal way. He scored 100% on his citizenship test. Neither she nor anyone in her family has taken one penny of welfare.
This is the American Dream I speak of. I welcome those that will come and grab it. Those that will not, I do not welcome.

“Americans arent reproducing. Not including immigrants, our birthrate is 1.7-1.8.”
There’s a good argument for us not taking on additional alien dependents. Our birth rate for American single mothers is now at 40 per cent.
Europe thought their immigrants would do the work the children they didn’t have were (of course) not doing, but what they got was generations of useless eaters with bad attitudes, many with several fertile wives birthing even more sullen deadbeats.
The economy sucks and many of our young people can’t get full time work. Most American kids know that babies are expensive. They wouldn’t consider squatting in an ER, having no intention of paying. It’s easy to be fertile if you expect Uncle Sam to pick up all your bills.
So what does Berry do? He imports more freeloaders.
Now pay up. :)
Most of the ones who voted for it aren't the ones who will be paying for it.
Immigration will do little to change our aging population.
While immigrants often arrive young and have somewhat larger families than natives do, the differences are not large enough to fundamentally alter the nations age structure. For example, the average age of an immigrant in 2012 was 43 years, while the average age of a native was 37. Also, in 2011 the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) in the United States without immigrants would have been 1.9 children per woman. With immigrants, it was 2.0 an increase of one-tenth of a point.
Thus, our fertility would be higher than almost all developed countries (and many developing ones) even without any immigrants at all. In a highly technical but seminal article in Demography in 1992, the leading academic journal in the field, economist Carl Schmertmann explored the impact of immigrants on population aging: Constant inflows of immigrants, even at relatively young ages, do not necessarily rejuvenate low-fertility populations. In fact, immigration may even contribute to population aging.
As the Census Bureau concluded in 2000, in the long run, immigration is a highly inefficient means for increasing the percentage of the population that is of working age. The newest Census Bureau population projections, released in May of last year, show the same thing. The high-immigration projections show that if net immigration totals 67 million by 2060, 57 percent of the U.S. population will be of working age (18 to 64). The low-immigration projection (33 million fewer) show 56 percent will be of working age in 2060. Roughly doubling immigration changes the working-age share by about 1 percentage point.
I don't agree with the premise that Japan, China, and Western Europe are facing a demographic catastrophe. An ever increasing population is not the secret to prosperity. Automation and raising the retirement age only slightly can address the problem. We have a surplus of workers yet we continue to import 1.1 million legal permanent immigrants a year and 640,000 guest workers annually.
The problem is our welfare system as Europes attracts many that are not productive and become a drain on the states resources. As such they do not help the demographic problem but make it worse, but there is an answer.
We need far less immigrants annually and we need to shift to a merit based system. There is no correlation to our immigration intake and out job needs.
We must encourage the immigration from societies that are willing to assimilate into our nation and adopt our culture as did the English, Irish, Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, Italians, Chinese Spanish, Portuguese etc. We are a nation of immigrants with a common American Dream.
The 1965 Immigration Act changed our demography forever. 87% of the 1.1 million legal permanent immigrants are minorities as defined by the USG.
I hope many nations send us their Engineers, Doctors, Tradesmen, Educators,(no lawyers please) and those that perform manual labor. All must be willing to grab the American Dream and live it in English. If we do this we will again be the "Shining City on the Hill" that President Reagan spoke about.<
I don't. We have 21 million Americans unemployed or underemployed. We have a surplus of labor, both skilled and unskilled.
This is the American Dream I speak of. I welcome those that will come and grab it. Those that will not, I do not welcome.
My wife is an immigrant. But that is not the point. We are taking in far too many legal immigrants, which has an impact on the American worker. The labor participation rates continue to fall across all age groups. We are destroying the middle class.
America is at a high risk of civilization collapse.
Thank you for this Kabar, I love reading your informed posts on this subject.
A friend of mine told me that back in 2006 when Levin was first starting out in radio in DC, Levin made the comment: “When it comes to terrorists Republicans want to fight them. Democrats want to make them President” If true, and I believe it is because I grew up with the person who told me it, Levin hit the biggest bullseye ever in his career because that’s exactly what has happened hasn’t it.
You ever wonder why the Obama-Biden ticket/name looked just a bit too much like Osama Bin-Laden? Because liberals either consciously or subconsciously want terrorists ruling the USA because liberals hate the USA. They want it destroyed. September 11th 2001 was like winning the lottery to them and they wanted it to happen again, so much so that they made an Islamic terrorist in disguise as President. And that is no conspiracy nut job stuff. What has this guy done other than empower and spread radical Islam while destroying the USA? He has done NOTHING else BUT that!!!

The Conservative Case Against Boehner’s Border Bill
BETTER LIGHT UP THE HOUSE PHONE LINES TODAY!
We are paying for a toll-free number to the Capitol Switchboard to make it as easy as possible for all of you. Here it is:
Call toll-free: 1-855-827-2353
Even though most Democrats in the House are currently supporting any kind of amnesty they can get, Democrats as well as Republicans need to be called today. It is important for Democrats — three months before elections — to hear just how unpopular these amnesties are. More than anybody else in Congress in recent years, Sen. Sessions has stood up for immigration policies in the interest of American wage-earners and their families. We definitely owe it to him — and to our national community — to respond with a phone call to our U.S. Representative today.....
...Make one or more of the following points to the congressional staffer who answers the phone:
1. You object to Pres. Obama by himself giving another mass amnesty to illegal aliens. The news media are reporting that he plans to do it soon, and you are outraged.
2. Congress should not give the President any of the money he wants for the Border Surge unless the bill prohibits the President from issuing any more work permits to illegal aliens without congressional approval. Ask if the Representative will promise to insist on that.
3. Tell them you support H.R.5160 by Rep. Blackburn that blocks any more go-it-alone amnesties by a President.
Good analysis of my post. I will delve into the figures in depth relative to the link you provided me by email. You might want to post that link for all of us.
I think the reason why the borders have basically been thrown open to those coming in (legally, illegally, and for work) and more difficult for those wanting to leave because of how tyrannical things are getting here is because of the need to finance the national debt.
The debt is financed on the backs of the Social Security numbers issued by the Feds to those here. With hardly anyone native to the US having children these days as well as the national debt spiraling out of control at a geometric rate it is necessary for the Feds to do what they are doing in order to avoid a crash of the US economy.
Did you ever see the movie with Donald Sutherland called, “Children of Men”?
The film takes place in 2027, where two decades of human infertility have left society on the brink of collapse.
Instead of infertility happening at the behest of nature people today in real life are choosing not to have children.
