He's on to us

I am not sure what O’Reilly was discussing, but I have a feeling it was related to either a study by the Heritage Foundation or a story in the Washington Post. But, either way it involved the immigration issue but not as a matter of race or ethnicity but in sheer numbers. Here is the link to where they most likely got their figures:

The report is from the Heritage Foundation and predicts that the Senate plan for amnesty and an increased guest worker program could lead to between 100 and 200 more immigrants into this country in the next 20 years. This would increase the population of the United States from 290 million plus now to 390 to 490 in twenty years which will have devastating effects on our social services.

They may also have been discussing about the number of children in this country under 5 who are a racial/ethnic minority which came from The Washington Post, Of U.S. Children Under 5, Nearly Half Are Minorities (May 10, 2006).

Sure, the messenger might have been wrong with O’Reilly, but the facts were still true in that overcrowding and overpopulation is going to be a big problem in this country, regardless of race. Personally, I don’t care what color you are when I am driving somewhere, but more people means more traffic and no one likes traffic.
