Americans already reach zero population growth, but immigrants keep coming

I found the comments of County Commissioners Gary Lindstrom and Tom Long as reported in Monday’s paper very interesting.

Both seem to think Americans should have fewer children. I would like to point out Americans have pretty much achieved zero population growth over the past several years.

Fortunately, the problem of growth is something they can help with. The population growth is mostly from immigration and the largest portion of that growth is from illegal immigration.

On the same page of the Summit Daily as their comments was the headline “Census finds 10 percent more Latinos in Avon.”

A couple of pages later, “CMC supports lower tuition for children of illegal immigrants.” It does not take much for me to see where the problem lies.

So, as our elected representatives, they can help by having the sheriff start rounding up illegal immigrants. They, the illegals, are all criminals by reason of being here illegally and local officers of the law have been enabled to do this.

The commissioners also can lean on our congressmen and senators to get the INS to do their job and assist our fine sheriff in doing this.

Of course the employers being subsidized by our government’s inaction in enforcing the law will be unhappy. Show some backbone, gentlemen, and lets solve the problem and enforce the laws.
