ENERGY AND IMMIGRATION
(Mr. TANCREDO asked and was given permission to address the House for
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. TANCREDO. Mr. Speaker, many pundits, and many of my colleagues,
will undoubtedly continue to discuss the energy crisis that the Nation
faces, and specifically in California they will be proposing solutions
that will range from increased supply to reduced demand and price caps.
Mr. Speaker, when will we get the courage to attack the root of this
problem or even discuss the root of this problem? The problem in
California and many places around this Nation is a massive population
increase caused by massive immigration, both legal and illegal.
It is the numbers, Mr. Speaker. That is what drives everything. That
is what drives the demand for all the resources we are now running out
of, and it is something we must come to grips with as a Nation. The
numbers, Mr. Speaker, more than anything else, that is the reason we
are going to be facing these kinds of dilemmas over and over and over
again, starting in California; but believe me, that is just the
It is the numbers. We have to do something about reducing massive
immigration into this country.
