Russian nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky has once again horrified the politically correct and 'culturally sensitive' by suggesting that White people, who comprise only eight percent of the world's population, should unite to keep from being overwhelmed by non-Whites. The reaction from Western governments and the news media to their current arch demon has been predictable. Any attempt to preserve the integrity of the White race, in their view, constitutes the most vile form of racism and bigotry, and anyone advocating such a plan must be pilloried as a dangerous criminal. It is, therefore, no surprise that only a few far sig " Yi tical philosophers have addressed the looming American immigration crisis. Our elected officials have failed for more than two decades to act to control immigration.

As a result, demographers are already taking note of the dramatic changes occurring in the population of the United States. Leon Bouvier and Cary Davis, respected demographers with the Population Reference Bureau, prepared population projections demonstrating the changes which large-scale Third World immigration is causing. They warn that projections are not predictions. Immigration could increase or decrease. The future will never turn out to be exactly like the projections.

Yet projections by the population experts are important because they give an approximation of future population demographics if immigration continues at current high levels. What do the experts' predictions show? Current levels of immigration are transforming the United States from a predominantly European-descended, English- speaking nation into a melting pot, a land in which Asians, non-White Hispanics, Blacks and Whites are all minorities. This transformation is happening fastest in the states favored by immigrants, such as California, Texas, Florida and New York. The speed with which this change occurs depends on the level of immigration.

Because most immigration to the United States is now illegal, no precise figure can be given for annual net immigration. However, Immigration and Naturalization Service officials and leading scholars are able to make educated estimates. Legal immigration is currently in excess of 600, 000 persons annually. Illegal immigrants fall into two broad categories: (1) visa abusers / fraudulent document users and (2) surreptitious border crosses. The latter category is well known to the American public. Chiefly Mexicans and others from Central America, these illegal aliens cross the border without visas or other documentation -- usually under cover of darkness.

More than 1. 2 million such aliens were captured this year, and Border Patrol agents estimate that two to three illegal aliens slip by for each one that is apprehended. While an indeterminate number of those who succeed in entering our country eventually return to their native lands, the net influx is believed to have been in excess of one million persons annually for the last several years -- and the number is growing. The other category of illegal aliens is more sophisticated and comes from around the world, particularly the Middle East, the Far East and Latin America. These violators of our laws enter posing as students, tourists or businessmen, then simply drop out of sight and never return to their homelands. Others enter with forged U.

S. passports or resident alien cards. Experts estimate that the flow of such visa abusers and fraudulent documents users is now in the neighborhood of 300, 000 to 500, 000 per year -- and growing. Combining 600, 000 legal immigrants with a conservative 1, 100, 000 illegal border crosses, then adding 300, 000 visa abusers and fraudulent document-using aliens, a rough estimate of 2, 000, 000 immigrants per year is reached. It should be noted that the flow of illegal aliens has been increasing steadily for over two decades, so that if the present lack of immigration control is continued, the flow will be much greater in the future.

Given the exploding population of the Third World, pressure to immigrate to the United States can only increase over the next several decades. The accompanying chart shows how the White population is decreasing in the United States while the non-White population from Latin America and the Caribbean is exploding. If America is to survive as a free and prosperous nation, decisive action must be taken soon. Border Patrol forces must be bolstered until enough men are available to cut the illegal immigrant flow to nil.

Legal immigration must be drastically reduced and shifted to favor those of European descent, who can more easily assimilate into the American population. Illegal aliens already here must be apprehended and deported. Our borders must be protected or we will become not a nation, but a border less conglomerate of peoples mixed in confused identities; linguistically, socially and racially debased.
