….76 percent drop-out/flunk-out rate for high school seniors. All totaled, 1.2 million eighteen year olds annually hit the streets functionally illiterate. In
Colorado, 73 percent of children live in poverty. Many large cities are in crisis.
Tancredo said, "Immigration, both legal and illegal, is the cause of a significant part of
Colorado's increase in child poverty."
The number of children under the age of 18 living in poverty increased from 104,000 in 2000 to 180,000 in 2006, in the Mile High state. Colorado led the nation in child poverty growth rate, yet features "only 4.6 million people"— except that state houses 500,000 and as high as 695,000 illegal alien migrants, uncounted… PLUS their children and grand-children.
The net result;
Colorado schools suffer 43 different languages, which cause havoc in classrooms. One in five teachers quits or transfers out of Denver Public Schools every nine months. (Source: Rocky Mountain News)
"It is irresponsible for the media and the governor to not recognize the fact that immigration is largely to blame for this increase," Tancredo said. "If
Colorado were actually enforcing its own laws, we would reduce the number of people in the poverty category."
ROOT-CAUSE; Law-breaking Employers entice, hire and employ illegals.
When this insanity ends, the jobs will dry up – migrants will repatriate.
However, Colorado Governor Bill Ritter (D) refuses to enforce
H.B. 1023. The legislature passed that law in 2006 – Extraordinary Summer Session – to fine and imprison employers of illegal aliens. Ritter, a Catholic, won't enforce it while
Colorado taxpayers shell out billions of dollars annually for all services for illegal aliens and their children. And this extra load upon city, county, state and federal taxpayers during a growing recession!
The president of the Colorado Children's Campaign gave a lame, well camouflaged excuse, "…changing demographics of the state."
Chaput, the leader of
Colorado's Catholic Church, uses similar nebulous descriptions… for the nice folks who have doubled attendance during that past seven years… effectively saving his beleaguered institution. As in
Los Angeles – political correctness disavows the real reason for a total breakdown in
U.S. schools and rampant accelerating poverty. Some call it the giraffe in the living room.
"The research is clear," Tancredo said. "An increase in immigration leads to an increase in
USA poverty. If we truly want to do something about poverty in
Colorado and our nation, we must stop importing poverty. We must begin enforcing the laws, primarily against hiring illegal aliens, which will force self-deportation of others in that category."
How fast do legal immigrants and illegal migrants pour into the
For a stupefying understanding of the numbers, every 30 days, 182,000 to 200,000 legal immigrants and illegal aliens arrive in
America. To give you an idea of how many people that represents: those immigrants would fill two 100,000 seat Pasadena Rose Bowls. At the end of the month, they empty into the streets, communities and states of
U.S. taxpayers. (Source: www.thesocialcontract.com) They overload schools, hospitals and prisons. Even the legal immigrants tap into billions of dollars for resettlement into this country. at a cost of at least $346 billion annually to
During the next month, two more
Bowls fill up – ad infinitum! Again, they empty out into
America, month in and month out, year in and year out. These are conservative numbers, gentle reader.
We have other experts (DHS-USCIS) telling us that the one hundred million annual visitors with passports and visas leave some 4 MIL behind every year… folks who decide to break our laws and ignore the visa expiration date.
Runaway Population increases swamping
USA ability to respond
Across the nation, every aspect of immigration impedes
America's ability to deal with poverty, create jobs, maintain living wages, sustain viable educational standards, expand our intra-USA highways and public transit, and keep pace with court workloads and burgeoning prison populations.
Both legal and illegal immigrants arrive from third world countries with cultures and educations that remain incompatible with
America's first-world culture. While most legal immigrants work hard to assimilate, most illegals do not. Your government tells you that "only 10-12 MIL" illegals reside in the
USA. Independent experts place that number above 40 MIL, plus their children and grand-children. While "official" government guesstimates place the U S population at 302 MIL, the independents tell us that number is really 337 MIL. What do you believe?
As those immigrants receive aid for their problems, The National Coalition for the Homeless, www.nationalhomeless.org reported 3.5 million homeless citizens struggled for survival in the streets of
America in 2006. Of that number, 1.35 million consist of homeless children. Reports show 13 million American children suffer daily from malnutrition and hunger in
America. A shocking 37 million Americans live below the poverty line, which is 12.7 percent of our population.
As reported by ABC's Charles Gibson, an astounding 28 million Americans live on food stamps in 2008.
How real is the crisis? As local communities move into bankruptcy, hospitals are closing in droves in
Georgia and other states.
Mexico portends our third-world future
In my travels throughout
Mexico, I witnessed our future. On the outskirts of
Mexico City with 22 million people, in excess of two million people live in cardboard shacks. They squat for their morning constitutional with their chickens. They live in abject misery, filth, disease and hopelessness.
Guess what? They're moving to
America – as many as 200,000 to a million… every month.
U S Border poverty Colonias – identical to those in third-world
Third world slums began appearing along our borders (on our side) from
California in the 80s. They're called "Colonias," which in Spanish means "new neighborhoods." They feature shacks, no sewers, no streets, no running water, no electricity, no toilet facilities or waste pickup.
The New York Times, March 3, 1988, "Along the US Border, a Third World is Reborn," reported, "Colonias are rusted trailers and shacks nailed together from tar paper and packing pallets without indoor toilets…with mounds of uncollected trash that attract rats…the lack of sanitation has polluted the ground water to the point where many residents drink their own waste…the colonias feature Third World levels of hepatitis, dysentery, diarrhea, skin rashes, cholera and tuberculosis…they are contaminated, explosive, fecal, filthy, illegal, miserable, polluted, powder kegs, putrid, shocking, sick, stench filled, suffering and wrenching."
S Colonias' growth rate is exponential
Since their appearance in the early 80s, according to the Times, the 1988 population totaled 185,000; the 1995 population exceeded 500,000; the 2005 population exceeded 1.5 million. At the current rate of growth, these human misery settlements shall reach 20 million by 2021. Little known to most Americans,
Mexico expects to triple their population from 100 million to 300 million in this century. Thus, no end to the line of "migrants" plodding north to
America in search of a better life!
I spent two weeks filming colonias in
Texas. I haven't been as sickened to my stomach since my travels in
Asia. It's worse than any description the New York Times or I could give you. Colonias represent human misery at its disturbing worst levels.
These slums represent a health hazard of unprecedented dimensions. Given enough time, large areas of southern
will resemble the outskirts of Mexico City. Two decades of denial continues the expansion of "American colonias."
Who becomes the final victim?
America and her citizens plunge into poverty via the addition of two
Bowls loaded with immigrants every 30 days – month in and month out – until our poor and middle class cannot find a job, a home or a place to run from this madness.
Can anyone name a single, solitary reason for continuing this kind of national suicide? Who brings it to you? Your U.S. States Senate and House of Representatives… by their weird actions and their even worse inactions! Our Congress is out-of-touch; fully 62% of the illegals are just here to accumulate a nest-egg, and go back "home." (
South Carolina study) Enough is enough.
Woodruff of ABC asked input from all citizens concerning the future of our planet. Go to www.earth2100.tv for a sobering reality check as to what we face and to what I have been writing about for the past 20 years. Our ‘window’ to change to a balanced population and non-polluting energy diminishes every day we ignore the symptoms manifesting all over
America and the planet.
Final note: I am looking for thinkers, writers and advocates to add to my monthly “Master Mind Think Tank.” In reality, our politicians foment the problems that they campaign to solve. They never solve them; thus we spiral into deeper national chaos. I need new ideas and new creative thinkers to help me bring our most pressing issues onto the front burner: overpopulation in
America caused by ceaseless legal and illegal immigration. As you know, the recent PEW report shows immigration adding 100 million people to our country in 30 years. We need to stop it and we need to stop it now. Join me in saving our civilization. firstname.lastname@example.org

This three minute interview with
Schrager on “Your Show”
May 4, 2008, NBC Channel 9 News, addresses the ramifications of adding 120 million people to
USA in 35 years and six million people to
Colorado as to water shortages, air pollution, loss of farmland, energy costs and degradation of quality of life. In the interview, Frosty Wooldridge explains the ramifications of adding 120 million people to the
USA in 35 years. He advances new concepts such as a “Colorado Carrying Capacity Policy”; “Colorado Environmental Impact Policy”; “Colorado Water Usage Policy”; “Colorado Sustainable Population Policy”. Nationally, the
USA needs a "National Sustainable Population Policy" to determine the carrying capacity of this nation for the short and long term. Wooldridge is available for interviews on radio and TV having interviewed on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX.
