The Immigration And Asylum Debate

Russian nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky has once again horrified the politically correct
and "culturally sensitive" by suggesting that White people, who comprise only eight
percent of the world's population, should unite to keep from being overwhelmed by
non-Whites. The reaction from Western governments and the news media to their current
archdemon has been predictable. Any attempt to preserve the integrity of the White race,
in their view, constitutes the most vile form of racism and bigotry, and anyone advocating
such a plan must be pilloried as a dangerous criminal.

It is, therefore, no surprise that only a few farsigYitical philosophers have addressed
the looming American immigration crisis. Our elected officials have failed for more than
two decades to act to control immigration. As a result, demographers are already taking
note of the dramatic changes occurring in the population of the United States.

Leon Bouvier and Cary Davis, respected demographers with the Population Reference Bureau,
prepared population projections demonstrating the changes which large-scale Third World
immigration is causing.

They warn that projections are not predictions. Immigration could increase or decrease.
The future will never turn out to be exactly like the projections. Yet projections by the
population experts are important because they give an approximation of future population
demographics if immigration continues at current high levels.

What do the experts' predictions show?

Current levels of immigration are transforming the United States from a predominantly
European-descended, English- speaking nation into a melting pot, a land in which Asians,
non-White Hispanics, Blacks and Whites are all minorities.

This transformation is happening fastest in the states favored by immigrants, such as
California, Texas, Florida and New York. The speed with which this change occurs depends
on the level of immigration. Because most immigration to the United States is now illegal,
no precise figure can be given for annual net immigration. However, Immigration and
Naturalization Service officials and leading scholars are able to make educated estimates.

Legal immigration is currently in excess of 600,000 persons annually. Illegal immigrants
fall into two broad categories: (1) visa abusers/fraudulent document users and (2)
surreptitious border crossers.
