December 2, 20062 Comments
Los Angeles, CA: In an eight minute Video News Blog, the Full Disclosure Network® presents a dynamic exchange of ideas expressed during a panel discussion hosted by the Milken Institute entitled “Illegal Immigration How Should We Deal With It?” The video is available for viewing FREE, 24/7 on demand and is being distributed to 43 cable television systems as part of a Video News Blog Special program, as a public service of the Full Disclosure Network®.
Sociology Professor Ruben Rumbaut warns of the danger that civil unrest in the United States will result if we ignore the developing underclass of children born to illegal immigrants. In this video news blog experts and elected officials explore the shocking statistics that raise the possibility that massive illegal immigration to the United Sates could lead to the same type of violence that occurred in France and England. It was noted that the violence in Europe was caused by children of immigrants from Pakistan and other Muslim countries.
Here are other points made by the distinguished panelists featured in the Video News Blog:
- GRAY DAVIS, Former California Governor says “we have a right as a country to say who comes into this country and who does not”….. “only so many people can fit into a lifeboat or it will sink.”
- DANA ROHRABACHER, U.S. Congressman advocates eliminating the policy of allowing family reunification, benefits and providing jobs for illegal immigrants. He says every one immigrant can bring in 90 family members.
- ARNALDO TORRES, Calif. Hispanic Heath Care Assn. and National Exec. Dir. League of United Latin American Citizens (1979-85): Says that illegal immigration is an economic problem and he does not support ending the family re-unification program for immigrants.
- RUBEN RUMBAUT, UCI PROFESSOR OF SOCIOLOGY: Says that 60 percent of all Mexicans, in Mexico, have relatives have relatives in the United States. He notes that the “Vital Ratio” (in the United States) among whites is one birth to one death and among Hispanics is eight births to one death which creates a disproportionate imbalance in the population.
Following the video news clips, viewers are asked to participate in an online survey by casting their vote on questions pertaining to the presentation. They are also asked to leave their comments and to join in the online blog discussion of the issue.
