Carrying Capacity Network (CCN) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“Mass immigration [is] bringing (ever more) new diseases to the U.S. Now more than ever a moratorium is crucial to stem the tide and prevent an epidemic… We must act to protect Americans from the threat of devastating outbreaks of deadly and disfiguring diseases. The most important step we can take now is to substantially reduce immigration. We must insist on a moratorium on all legal immigration in excess of 100,000 per year, and a NO vote on any and all illegal alien amnesties, ‘guest worker,’ ‘earned legalization,’ or ‘regularization’ bills that will bring even more illegal aliens surging across the border.”

Description:

“Carrying Capacity Network is a group of activists working to promote and conserve what’s right with America and to eliminate what’s wrong with America. Most of America’s main problems – from traffic, to classroom crowding, to pollution, depletion, welfare dependency, increasing taxes, and cultural fragmentation, have deep roots in our unsustainable population growth. Because of that, CCN focuses on stabilizing our population. We are even willing to face the awkward demographic fact that immigration is the cause of most of our recent growth.”

Mission:

“National Revitalization attained through fostering education, family, community self-reliance, tradition, and national unity. Population Stabilization as soon as possible, provides the foundation for solving all other problems. Immigration Reduction achieved through an immediate moratorium and eventual all-inclusive cap of 100,000 per year is the key to stopping U.S. population growth. Sustainable Economic Activity is based on achieving a stable population, balanced budgets, employment stability, and conservation of resources. Resource Conservation including land, energy, and water, provides the basis for a healthy environment and sustainable economy.”
