OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to the November 2006 Rand Corp. study, health care provided to illegal adult migrants alone costs about $6.4 billion a year nationally and that 68 percent of illegal migrants are uninsured. If another amnesty were adopted, tens of millions of newcomers, U.S.-born and foreign-born relatives of illegal migrants, could be added within 20 years to the U.S. population. They will also consume energy, require education, health care, welfare, and other costly social services provided to them cannot be covered by any taxes paid due to their low incomes.
On 7/7/06, Mexican American professor Armando Navarro, who has fought all U.S. measures to secure our borders, was quoted in the Los Angeles Times as saying, "A new majority is forming. Everything will change. The White House will be within our reach."
Yeh Ling-Ling, Executive Director of Diversity for a Sustainable America (DASA) noted: "Can this nation achieve fiscally responsible health care and other reforms without opposing amnesty and adopting Mexico's immigration policies?" Yeh added: "In the past 15 years, more than 50 million people have been added to the U.S. population, mostly due to immigration-driven increases. The U.S. population quadrupled from 1900 to 2007, from 76 million to 303 million. Another quadrupling of 303 million is India's current population, and that could happen within the lifetimes of today's children's children! Do Hispanic activists want to turn the United States into another Mexico or part of the Mexican nation -- a country that many of them or their ancestors have left? Shouldn't Latin America, which has 37 billionaire citizens, including Mexican citizen Carlos Slim, now the world's wealthiest person, work to improve life for their own citizens?"
DASA is a national non-profit organization whose leaders and
supporters, including Hispanic and Asian immigrants, are racially and
politically diverse. Yeh's articl
