BARBARA JORDAN, DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, TOM TANCREDO AND NUMBERSUSA LEAD AMERICA OUT OF IMMIGRATION CRISIS
In 1997, African-American Congresswoman Barbara Jordan chaired the Immigration Reform Commission. She recommended reduction in immigration in order to provide economic relief to vulnerable American workers. Specifically, mass immigration killed jobs for black Americans. She was ignored.
In 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King said, "The modern plague of overpopulation is solvable by means we have discovered and with resources we possess. What is lacking is not the sufficient knowledge of the solution, but the universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem for billions of people who are its victims." He was ignored.
Jacque Cousteau, the famed Scuba diver of the oceans, said, "Surviving like rats is not what we should bequeath to our children." He was ignored.
Senator Gaylord Nelson said, "There is no way in the world we can forge a sustainable society without stabilizing our population�there�s no way of stabilizing the U.S. population without reducing the immigration rate.
When do we decide we have to do something, or do we wait until things are as bad as they are in the countries people want to leave?"
Fellow Americans, it�s important that you forward this commentary to every friend, neighbor, aunt, uncle, grandmother and grandfather�if you hope to change the current disastrous Titanic-like course of our nation concerning immigration. We cannot survive another 10 years with four million legal and illegal alien uneducated and desperately poor people migrating into our country. At the end of this commentary, you will be given the most powerful tool in the USA today�to create change for you, our country and our kids.
Jean Raspail in "Camp of the Saints" wrote about a haggard horde of immigrants who had destroyed their own country so badly that they set sail for another land to renew their dreams. However, a man on the ship warned, "You don�t know my people�the squalor, superstitions, the fatalistic sloth that they�ve wallowed in for generations. You don�t know what you�re in for if that fleet of brutes ever lands in your lap!
Everything will be changed in this country of yours. They will swallow you up!"
As you look around the USA, a horde of people from the Third World invades our borders 24/7. And, it�s quickening. Yes, they are desperate and my heart goes out to them. However, their line never ends as they add 80 million annually. We cannot save them but we can destroy our country. Our president ignores it because he�s not affected. Our Congress ignores it because they are bought off. Our state governors ignore it because they are clueless. Our wealthy class is not affected because it lives in gated communities. Americans ignore it because they trust too much in our leaders. Many think it will take care of itself.
We can no longer ignore this nation-destroying crisis. It�s time to move�just like Betsy Ross stitched the flag, like Thomas Jefferson who wrote, "We the people�.", Susan B. Anthony who obtained the vote for women, Ben Franklin who invented, writer H.B. Stowe, Eleanor Roosevelt and every citizen who has served our country in uniform or as a volunteer.

Ron Maxwell, director of Gods, Generals and Gettysburg said, "I do not take for granted that our nation's open spaces, farmland, wetlands, wooded habitats, and all the wildlife living in them�nor our human institutions�will survive the constant sprawl of human expansion.
NumbersUSA.com works�solidly based on U.S. Census Bureau facts�shocks many into a sense of urgency to do something to change our future.
"I urge you to join me in supporting NumbersUSA and using its tools at www.NumbersUSA.com to persuade federal officials to consider seriously the long-range consequences of their current immigration policies."
Tom Tancredo said, "This non-profit, non-partisan team plays a key role in educating the public and public officials about immigration policy."
Okay, those are famous people you�re thinking. What about average citizens?
"At 68 years old, I feel that for the first time in my adult life, �I�who have no money or power can make a difference thanks to the relentless work of NumbersUSA.com." John

Eleanor Roosevelt said it 50 years ago; "We must prevent human tragedy rather than run around trying to save ourselves after an event has already occurred. Unfortunately, history clearly shows that we arrive at catastrophe by failing to meet the situation, by failing to act when we should have acted. The opportunity passes us by and the next disaster is always more difficult and compounded than the last one."
The worst decision you can make is to feel that you can do so little that you do nothing at all.
Betsy Ross did her thing. Jefferson
did his thing. That was their time; this is ours.
