FAIR: Senate Immigration Bill Would Put U.S. On Pace To Approach One Billion By 2100

By Scott McLean

An immigration reform group Friday criticized a U.S. Senate bill that it said would put U.S. population on pace to approach one billion people by the year 2100.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in a press release distributed by PR Newswire, wrote the bill is "one of the most irresponsible pieces of immigration legislation ever brought before the United States Congress."

"The so-called 'comprehensive immigration reform' legislation moving to the Senate floor would wreak havoc on the economic, social, and environmental life of the nation," warned Dan Stein, president of FAIR.

FAIR maintains that no analysis was done on the impact a billion people would have on resources, infrastructure and government programs.

Environmental issues, such as water resources, pollution and wilderness preservation, as well as education, health care and housing, are among the factors FAIR says Congress must examine before approving immigration reforms.

"Every member of Congress who supports this program of massive government mandated population growth should have an obligation to explain to the American people why he or she believes that this country will be better off with a population of a billion people within the lifetimes of today's children," said Stein.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform said it represents no private interest, corporation, union, political party or ethnic lobby.
