Environmental Impact Statement on US Immigration by PFIR

Progressives for Immigration Reform (PFIR), is a non-profit organization educate public on unintended consequences of mass migration. PFIR protects workers rights in supporting the US Economic policies. PFIR announced a new project and Environment Impact Statement (EIS) on US Immigration Policies.

In recent decades, American environmentalists have debated about whether or not to weigh in on U.S. immigration policy. Many environmentalists have wondered:

  • What roles immigration and population growth play in driving the problems environmentalists seek to solve?
  • Can these problems be solved without addressing immigration and immigration-driven population growth?
  • What are the policy choices with regard to immigration levels, and how can we choose fairly and wisely among them

Currently immigrants entering US legally are approximately 950,000 people per year, and closer to 400,000 people immigrant illegally. Dr. Philip Cafaro, will give a detailed analysis on ecological impacts of different population sizes, water demands, green house gas emission, climate change, impact of bio-diversity, habitat loss, energy demands and national security implications all these factors which impact in the US Immigration policies.

According to Dr. Philip Cafaro, a principal investigator in the study: “The EIS will identify a number of plausible alternative immigration scenarios, regarding how many immigrants to allow into the country annually. The study will also develop demographic projections specifying future U.S. populations, based on these different annual immigration rates.”

Initial “Scoping” Phase of the study will last through October 1. More information can be found by visiting http://www.immigrationeis.org/.
