Immigration


“The most common Libertarian position on immigration is open borders; however, this is a very complex issue when we factor in the variables of our times such as central banking, fiat currency and wealth distribution programs. Open borders will work if neighboring countries operate under free market conditions also. All countries would benefit from the freedom of economical mobility. All countries would economically benefit from free trade and mutual cooperation without government interventions.” – Nevada Libertarian Party

 

An accelerated path to gain legal status for people already in the US.

I support the Dream Act.

I propose locking down the border and controlling immigration.

 

The reason why we must control immigration:

IT’S THE GROUNDWATER.   “Aquifers provide us freshwater that makes up for surface water lost from drought-depleted lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. We are drawing down these hidden, mostly nonrenewable groundwater supplies at unsustainable rates in the western United States and in several dry regions globally, threatening our future.”    National Geographic

The Achilles heel of the western United States is the water.

In 2000, the U.S. Census Bureau provided population projections out to 2100. The third column which predicted a population of 310,910 was the closest to the actual census count of 308,745,538. If we continue at that rate of population growth we would have a billion people living in the US before the end of the century. No amount of conservation and desalination will be able to provide enough water for that big of population increase in the western United States.
