FSP advocates reducing and eventually halting Florida's excessive rate of population increase by taking action on measures aimed at all of population growth causes. However, the overwhelming cause of Florida's booming population growth is domestic and international immigration. (See Florida Growth Sources). The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that one-half to two-thirds of Florida's growth in the 1990's is attributable to foreign immigrants in that decade and the offspring of all foreign-born women in Florida.
Unlimited population growth is not inevitable!! Congress gave us mass immigration by policy changes in 1965. Congress can fix it by adopting policy changes that will return legal immigration to traditional levels of approximately 235,000 annually. Congress can stop illegal immigration by securing our borders, implementing a biometric entry/exit program, and enacting E-Verify to ensure only legal workers are hired. Don't be fooled again Congress, they haven't keep the promises they made in 1986. Oppose Amnesty!
We can't stress how important it is to contact members of Congress. Remember... APATHY=AMNESTY
We recommend signing up to receive action alerts from Numbers USA and the Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR). Both organizations are at the forefront of the immigration battle in Washington.
