IMMIGRATION REDUCTION OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS LOUDLY—HOW TO SEIZE IT!

IMMIGRATION REDUCTION OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS LOUDLY—HOW TO SEIZE IT!

Last week, the Goodlatte Bill H.R.4760 failed by only 20 votes. It would have put the House on record as supporting “merit”-based legal immigration by ending the Visa Lottery, and  Chain Migration, and mandating e-Verify to reduce Illegal Immigration, but it would have at best cut Legal Immigration numbers by half still allowing over half a million Legal Immigrants per year.

The Goodlatte Bill received far more votes than sell-out Speaker Ryan's thinly disguised Amnesty Bill, which failed by a 2 to 1 Margin. 

So, given these two Failures, why does Opportunity knock loudly?

Consider:
The U.S. Government's next funding Bill needs to be passed by September 30 this year and is likely to incorporate $$$ Trillion Annual Deficits going Forward.
BALANCE's Strategy will be to publicize and push the fact that passing one single Bill  — a zero net MORATORIUM  Bill — would reduce costs to U.S Taxpayers by over one-half Trillion $$$ in the next decade.

Indeed, The NET (after subtracting taxes immigrants pay) Costs of LEGAL immigration of over 1.5 Million LEGAL Immigrants/year alone to U. S. Taxpayers are $330 Billion annually, as shown in a 2017 study by our ASAP Coalition Ally CCN. That's $1,000 per U.S. taxpayer per year!!!

Working in our favor is the fact that the Open Borders lobby has finally revealed its true colors.  These advocates are pushing for the elimination of ICE, which would go far toward creating Open Borders and vastly more illegal immigration — an anti-law, anti-American pro-Demographic Tsunami position.

Important to note is that, by taking such an extreme Position, the Left aims to create the maximum pressure in opposition to Immigration Reduction. They are employing an elementary principle of Negotiation — ask for more than you expect to get.

So, of course, we reductionists should continue to push the position which gives us most leverage for reductions — an all-categories-included zero-net MORATORIUM.
And our position is quite reasonable … it would still allow admission of about 150,000/year, and it does send BALANCE's Essential Message — Mass Immigration MUST END!!

So here is what to do:
Considering that the Mass Immigration Management Groups, i.e., those which refuse to support MORATORIUM (and which BTW have a Perfect two decades long record of Total Failure to get any reduction bill passed), patiently explain to them how they can actually help get a Reduction Bill passed as follows.

Consider that a Leading Management Group actually supports reducing Legal Immigration to 500,000/year and “eventually” to 300,000/year. This is COUNTERPRODUCTIVE not only because it creates ZERO political leverage to get reductions but also because it de facto SUPPORTS a continuation of Mass Immigration!  500,000 or even 300,000/year of legal immigration would result in unending population growth in the USA!

And an examination of that other “leading” Mass Immigration group's website reveals almost a sole focus on Illegal immigration and a neglect of Legal Immigration whose numbers are far, far greater.  Thus, refusing to focus on LEGAL immigration is COUNTERPRODUCTIVE to actually achieving any reductions.

It reminds one of the website (visit unfairus.org) erected a few years ago by Protect Arizona Now patriots who were not helped by the Management groups about whom PAN asked “Whose side are they on anyway?”

And regarding current Bills:
Although the RAISE Act S354 (Cotton R-AR, Perdue R-GA) has some good provisions, it contains Three Serious Flaws.

 The Good: It would:

  • Reduce Legal Immigration by at least half to about 500,000 per year
  • Require that Legal Immigrants speak English
  • Require that Legal Immigrants NOT receive Welfare for 5 Years
  • Limit “Refugees” to 50,000 per year
  • End the Visa Lottery, and, above all…
  • Reduce Chain Migration from appx 480,000 per year to appx. 88,000 per year by limiting family-sponsored Immigrants to spouses and minor children of US Citizens or Legal Permanent Residents.

HOWEVER, The Seriously Bad :(true of both the Cotton-Perdue and Goodlatte Bills!):

  • would still allow over half a million Legal Entrants annually and thus Validate a continuation of Mass Immigration ad Infinitumclearly Not Sustainable
  • adopt a piecemeal Multi-Category approach that is extremely vulnerable to Many Weakening Amendments
  • fails to push an all-categories-included 150,000 CAP

BALANCE’s Push for a Zero-Net Moratorium would not only impose such a CAP but it also maximizes Political Pressure to get Reductions. The RAISE Act Fails this Test.

And, one of the RAISE Bill's alleged strong points, the Merits-based system for admitting skilled workers (H1bs) is well-intentioned but would allow far too many admissions. It is based on flawed data that American workers do not have the necessary skills. It lends itself to “gaming”, and would result in continuing job loss and wage depression among American workers.

The Bill also would allow admission of too many “Refugees” (what about addressing the Needs of the USA’s hundreds of thousands of homeless first?) and allows H2b low skilled workers, many of whose prospective jobs should either go to Americans or are, in any case, disappearing because of automation.

Pushing an all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium (which would still allow Legal Immigration of 150,000 per Year because Immigration would then equal Emigration) is key as an objective because it is reasonable and Essential for long-term Environmental and Personal Protection and for providing Sufficient Resources, INCLUDING WATER and FOOD and Money, for survival. Today, we are in the process of exceeding our long-term Carrying Capacity.

In sum, a Zero-Net Moratorium is The Necessary Condition for achieving U.S. Population Stabilization, long term Environmental Protection, Budgetary Solvency in State and Local Government (especially for our Health Care and Educational Institutions), Tax Reduction, Unemployment Reduction, Social and Cultural Cohesion and Personal Safety ... and for protection of our Food and Water Supplies!

Only our Massive Grassroots Effort can Succeed! Phone Calls or Office Visits followed by Snail Mail letters are most effective (emails are often ignored and fax machines can be turned off). And please consider that BALANCE is greatly outspent by the Cheap Labor Lobby and various Ethnic Power Lobbies.

So Please Help BALANCE MOBILIZE ACTIVISTS to Intensify our push for the aforementioned ASAP! Coalition Moratorium Initiative, TODAY, NOW!

BALANCE very much needs you to make a Tax-Deductible Donation TODAY. Dollar for Dollar, Donations to BALANCE and its ASAP! Coalition Allies who push a Moratorium, create much more Political Clout than Donations to Mass Immigration Management Groups.

Help Stop Exploitation of Children at Border; Stop Amnesty of Two Million

BALANCE ACTION ALERT
 
Help Stop Exploitation of Children at Border;
Stop Amnesty of Two Million
We wish no harm to come to children crossing the Border, either Illegally or Legally, but the question is how best to prevent the harm.
 
Before any consideration can be given to ending the  policy which separates adults from children, the Open Borders Crowd should be urged to answer a few key questions: 
 
Are the adults and children really parent and child?

It appears that many of these children are victims of a very profitable criminal human trafficking enterprises. For those children, separation from the adults who bring them is clearly child-protection. A sure way of finding the truth is to separate the adult from the child to ascertain their true relationship.
 
Unfortunately, separation of minor children from adults who bring them illegally across the US border is being used as leverage by the Open Borders Crowd to attack the legitimacy of Borders.  These Leftists are in fact exploiting these Children for their own political gain. 

And why did these leftists not criticize President Obama who implemented the Separation Policy?
 
Where are these soft-hearted leftists on LBJ’s so-called “Great Society” that continues to force the separation of fathers from their families?
 
The US Welfare system was  set up in such a way that it destroys the family unit, with particularly devastating effect on poor and minority families.
 
How is USA to deter future Illegal crossings unless it stops adults and children, separates them, even if only temporarily?
 
Eliminating the separation requirement would only encourage more criminal  trafficking, thus increasing the risk for even more children, women and young adults.
 
It would also encourage the break-up of more families. Some parents are entrusting their minor children to criminal human trafficking gangs in the hope that the children will be able to assist their own immigration through “chain migration.”

Instead, why not encourage families to unify in their country of origin?
 
Finally, do we not have the moral obligation to provide a Safe ENVIRONMENT and opportunities for our own needy children first?
 
Thousands of American children are separated from their parents, frequently with little justification,some without due process or on false information, and some to protect them from domestic violence. Where are the outraged leftists on this blatant injustice among our own citizens?
 
Preventing the trafficking of minors starts at our borders and acts as a deterrent. When traffickers are deterred, they subsequently lose the incentive to traffic children and adults. The process of separation and housing of suspected illegally trafficked children is costly but deterring traffickers will help to prevent the tragic abuse of vulnerable children and even greater costs in the future and the many women who are forced to  bring the minors with them and subsequently are trafficked themselves. Building The Wall ASAP! would help significantly. In California alone, thousands of families are living under freeway overpasses. Where are our priorities?
 
Speaker of the House Ryan is pushing a de facto Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill for Two Million to a vote early this coming week.
 
Help stop Ryan's outrageous Bill!!  Contact your Representatives NOW!!
 
Legal Immigration costs a NET (after subtracting the  taxes Legal immigrants pay) $330 BILLION per year or $1,000 annually for each U.S. Taxpayer!  Thats $758 Million per year for each Congressional District!  
 
SOLUTION: We encourage you to push for an all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium on Legal Immigration, including  requirements that the Border Wall be funded, chain migration, Birthright Citizenship, and the Visa Lottery  ended,  and e-Verify be mandated.
 
The world's population increases by 80 MILLION per year and the pressure to come to the United States will only increase, with disastrous implications for the Environment, Natural Habitats and Resources including especially the loss of prime agricultural land (one acre for each person added to the U.S population -- Pimentel et. al. Cornell)  if we do not Stop Mass Immigration of 1.5 Million plus Legal Immigrants per year (400,000/year to California alone! --U.S Census)
 
Let us say it plainly, refusing to push for a Zero-Net MORATORIUM (which would still allow Immigration of about 150,000 per year, to equal out-migration) amounts to encouraging the continuing Mass Immigration Tidal Wave and Environmental Degradation, and the continued Displacement and Wage Depression of American Workers! and continuing huge cost to US taxpayers—$330 Billion NET (after subtracting Taxes Immigrants pay) per year (per CCN’s NET Costs Study)!
 
Pushing a Moratorium maximizes our Political clout to ensure our borders are protected and maximizes the chances of achieving reductions in legal and illegal immigration.  And equally important it would help reduce Illegal Immigration by reducing the Magnet Effect of potential easy Legalization.
 
BALANCE can enhance our chances by greatly intensifying our effort NOW and the ONLY WAY we can do that is if you make a Tax-Deductible DONATION TODAY!
 
Donations are urgently needed NOW. Congress is actively considering Immigration Legislation NOW!
 
Dollar for Dollar, Donations to BALANCE and its ASAP! And Diversity Coalition Allies who push a zero-net Moratorium, create much more Political Clout for reduction in immigration numbers than Donations to Mass Immigration Management Groups, (i.e.those who refuse to push a MORATORIUM) whose positions are COUNTERPRODUCTIVE because they legitimize a continuation of Mass Immigration as their past record of many years of failures has proven.

Big Amnesty Plans Enable Continued Population Explosion – Help STOP IT!


The White House proposal to Amnesty 1.8 Million “DACA-eligible” Illegal Aliens, in return for limitations on Chain Migration and an end the Visa Lottery would actually not have a beneficial Population Stabilization effect for years.



(In other words, the Legal Immigration of 1.5 Million+ per year would not be reduced much for years under the White House proposal and would greatly increase under other proposals like the Durbin/Graham proposal.)



Consider the White House plan which would give

“…an instant amnesty for an estimated 1.8 million "DACA-eligible" illegal aliens. … and make further cuts to chain migration after those currently in line for other categories have been admitted.(emphasis added)

“The bottom line is that these cuts to chain migration would reduce total legal immigration by about 18 percent in the short term, and 33 percent in the long term (after 10 years). However, the huge size of the amnesty means that under this scheme it will take about 15 years for the chain migration cuts to offset the new green cards awarded in the amnesty. In other words, there would be instant deportation relief for 1.8 million illegal aliens, but a very long wait for immigration relief for Americans.”

“White House Immigration Framework
Big Amnesty Now, Chain Migration Cuts Much Later,”
J. Vaughan, January 31, 2018, cis.org

In addition Amnesty Recipients would be given a 10-year Path to Citizenship and

“The spouses of citizens (and their children) will continue to enter in unlimited numbers and the spouses of Lawful Permanent Residents (and their children) will be capped at about 88,000, as under current law.”

Ibid.

However, most unfortunately,

All of the approximately 3.9 million people on the waiting list for chain migration green cards will be offered the opportunity to apply for admission under current numerical limits, plus a few extra (see below). According to the State Department, this will ultimately result in the admission of about 2.5 million new immigrants, as some will decline the opportunity and a few will be found to be ineligible for admission. I estimate that the admission of these applicants would take approximately 10 years under the current numerical limits and quotas….(emphasis added)

“Furthermore, the leading proposals being considered by the Senate create a new non-immigrant residency visa for parents of citizens that will replace the green card category…. And the parents of the "Dreamers" who receive amnesty might become eligible for residency under such a program, thus potentially more than doubling the size of the amnesty. (It has been estimated that Dreamers have an average of 1.6 parents in the U.S.)

“…After 10 years, green card awards would settle to a number that is about 33 percent lower than current levels, or about 775,000 per year.”

Ibid.

One consequence of enabling a continued Migration near or above the current 1.5 Million LEGAL Immigrants per year is that the NET (after subtracting Taxes Immigrants pay) Costs of that LEGAL Inflow would remain near $330 Billion per Year! And the effects on the Natural and Personal Safety Environments would remain.

Thus the White House and other Proposals demonstrate how important it is to maximize downward pressure on the numbers by pushing for a Zero-Net Moratorium as all ASAP! Coalition Member Organizations do. Is it not, therefore, true that any group which refuses to push a Moratorium is an Immigration Management Group, NOT a Genuine Reduction Group?

Only our Massive Grassroots Effort can Succeed in reducing the Numbers! Phone Calls or Office Visits are most effective (emails are often ignored and fax machines can be turned off). And please consider that BALANCE is greatly outspent by the Cheap Labor Lobby and various Ethnic Power Lobbies.

So Please Help BALANCE MOBILIZE ACTIVISTS to Intensify our push for the aforementioned all-categories included Zero-NET MORATORIUM, TODAY, NOW!
