FOUND THIS INTERESTING - CALM AND TO THE POINT.  NOT STIRRING THINGS UP - As I believe that America is a beautiful melting pot.  My youngests sons father is 3rd generation German, my oldest is from a 2nd generation Cuban.  I am a heinz 57 - but love all people from all cultures - This just touches on the reality of population, preservation, & such..... things that need to be thought about and addressed - just like recycling - my pet peeve!!  But the side note here- this guys is beautimous to look at~!

Immigration Numbers - Talk About Numbers, Talk About Immigration

[Link Removed]

  

On September 10, 2008, NumbersUSA launched Talk About Numbers, Talk About Immigration.  

There are 305 million people in the U.S today. We‘re on track, with current immigration numbers, to add another 135 million in just 40 years. That means more stress on the environment. More roads. More cars. More oil. And more pressure on the economy and on a healthcare system that isn’t working. Before we can honestly address the problems facing us, we need to have a serious discussion about the numbers. So, let’s start talking.

    • This was very interesting to me. My father was an immigrant to this country and my husband is an immigrant. All of us think there must be a better way - anyone have to deal with INS? Total backlog and bureaucracy! If we could get a LOGICAL, SOUND immigration policy in this country, I think we would be much better off.

    • One of my dearest friends is from the Bahamas - she was here on a studen visa for over 10 years.  She married 3 years ago - but government determined her dh didn’t make enough money to support them so she still couldn’t begin the legalization process.  WE ended up sonsoring her so she could stay!!  Jeepers!!

    • Isn’t it crazy, saylor?? Hubby has passed everything - citizenship test, etc...we are just waiting for the final citizenship paperwork from INS - for over 7 months!! They are “backlogged“....He’s been here 20 years and we have been married for 16. He has been in citizenship process for nearly 3 years! Frustrating!!!
