The Absurdity of Fear

- By Greg Stewart



6,500,000,000 (rounded) World Population

1,313,000,000 billion (rounded) China

The Heritage Foundation


The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act (CIRA, S. 2611) would be the most dramatic change in immigration law in 80 years, allowing an estimated 103 million persons to legally immigrate to the US over the next 20 years—fully one-third of the current population of the United States.

According to The Heritage Foundation, by the end of 20 years, the senate bill, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act (CIRA, S. 2611), could possibly allow an “estimated 103 million persons to immigrate over the next 20 years—fully one-third of the current US population.” In other words, on the average, averaged per year, 5 million legal immigrants would be crashing through gates, in this case, borders of America.

These numbers are astounding; even frightening; until one realizes their absurdity. The Heritage Foundation report by Robert Rector boldly titled, “Senate Immigration Bill Would Allow 100 million New Legal Immigrants over the Next Twenty Years” is nothing more than tilted political spin, filled with supposition, extending the worse case scenarios, and playing on the fears of Americans................

Actually, under CAIR it would have been an increase of 100 to 200 million over the next 20 years based on a conservative estimate by the Heritage Foundation that there are only 10 million illegal immigrants here, although the news regularly reports 13 million. Because of the report by Rector at Heritage and subsequent pressure on the Senate, S. 2611 which is different from the Hagel-Martinez CAIR, will lead to an increase of a minimum 66 million new immigrants over the nest 20 years as predicted by updated projections by Rector and the Heritage Foundation.
Illegal immigration is sort of my topic.
