Be among the first to comment on Roy Beck's op-ed, "On Earth Day, Don't Forget How Federal Immigration Policies Undermine Eco-Friendly Goals"
for the Independent Journal Review
Research Center projects that the United States is on pace to add
another 117 million people by 2060, and 88% of it would be the result of
federal immigration policies."
Due to immigration policy alone, more than 100 million
Americans will be added to the population over the next 50 years:
- Raleigh and Atlanta will run into each other by 2060
- Cropland will be reduced from 1.9 acres per American in 1982 to 0.7 acres per American in 2050;
have as much at stake in this as Americans who have been here for
generations: The majority of immigrants live in suburbs and at the edges
of cities where most sprawl occurs.
Spread the word,
Roy is quoted more here
about how immigration cannot be ignored as part of the conversation on sprawl and the loss of open space in America.
