    Our relatively open borders Immigration policy is short-term oriented and very selfish…
    I have been studying population and environmental issues for over 25 years and have come to believe that for the US, for other countries, and for the world – the most humane and environmental tact is to HELP PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE – not to encourage them to migrate.

    Migration to the US increases our own very unsustainable and growing population level with its devastating local and global environmental impacts, relieves us from training and hiring our own many low wage workers, takes pressure off of source countries to deal with their own population growth and related economic problems, and draws away from those countries the very people who are most likely to be leaders in their native lands to help improve conditions. Some countries have asked us, in fact, to better enforce our laws to help them better their own conditions. We must set an example and stop being selfish.
    Population is the great multiplier!

    Don’t be a deep feeler and a poor thinker. – George C. Marshall, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, 1953.

    Excellent presentation! High immigration is a tool to enrich the already well off, and swell the government plantation, at the expense of the public. Furthermore, illegal immigration undermines the rule of law.

  3. Tim Aaronson says:

    I applaud the Jewish Press for presenting the work of Roy Beck.

    For too long American Jews have held only one view on the subject of immigration, that informed by the plight of passengers of the St Louis in the 1930s and the romanticized poetry of Emma Lazarus. Times have changed and it is time to change the paradigm. Moslem immigration means the death of support for Israel; masses of poorly educated from Latin America mean the death of the middle class of America; and the sheer numbers mean the death of the environment and any hope for a sustainable future for our children.

  4. Andrea Gardner says:

    Kudos to the Jewish Press for publishing this. We here in the US don't have the courage to do so. Neither does most of the world.

Corey Gil-Shuster always has an interesting question to ask.
