Americans need access to untrampled open space

Nature-lovers such as myself care most about biodiversity/species extinction and the incremental loss of America’s dwindling open spaces, e.g., wildlife habitat and wilderness. These problems are a direct and readily-observable result of our nation’s population growth.

Saving wildlife is hopeless while America’s population keeps booming

Although states with high population growth have more political influence, there are considerable drawbacks. America is experiencing a biodiversity crisis, mostly from habitat loss caused by our immigration-driven population. Wildlife species keep getting added to America’s list of endangered and threatened wildlife, now exceeding a mind-boggling 1,300 species.

We are witnessing the dramatic loss of farmland in America. Plus, the farmland remaining is being degraded due to fragmentation, salinization, and/or topsoil erosion. This permanent loss of the means to produce food has been driven by our own population growth. What makes America unique among rapidly-growing countries is that our high growth in numbers is facilitated primarily through permissive immigration policies.

How Democrats are making it harder to save biodiversity

I am writing to you because I am concerned about our unsustainable population growth, driven primarily by your immigration policies, which add more than one million per year (more than two million since the current border crisis began). America is inexorably losing its open spaces and wilderness areas, along with a wide array of wildlife.

Please support mandatory E-Verify

The simplest way to end illegal immigration is by requiring all employers to use E-Verify. I hope you’ll support this commonsense solution and push for a vote on legislation that would mandate E-Verify nationwide.
