Author and columnist Frosty Woolridge sounded the alert over illegal immigration in America. He estimated that there are currently over 20 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., with around half of them coming from Mexico. There is also a 7-billion dollar people-smuggling operation originating in Asia that is contributing to the problem, he said. Illegal immigrants have taken over many blue collar jobs and driven down the salary for such positions, he noted, adding that this scenario could be an effort by the "elites" who want both cheap labor and to bust up unions.
Beyond the economic damage, Woolridge asserted that resources such as water will become increasingly scarce in many locales, due to the burdens of overpopulation. Further, he suggested that the multicultural immigrant population in the U.S. is "infecting us with a Balkanization" of languages and nationalities. These groups show little interest in assimilating into American culture, and could eventually turn our nation into a "third world quagmire," he opined.
Woolridge proposed a 10-year moratorium on all immigration and said he favors an increased military presence on the borders, using video cameras and night vision scopes to curb illegal crossings. He calls for American citizens to form "an avalanche of protest," that could lead to immigration reforms. Click here for a specific list of his recommendations.
