Rather than recommending that Americans cut back on their excessive consumer lifestyle, an anti-immigration group has released an advertisement touting controversial research that has claimed immigrants’ carbon footprints quadruple in size after moving to the US.
The group, Californians for Population Stabilization, does not advocate that Americans themselves have fewer children, nor do they promote any other type of change to the American lifestyle. In fact, this is the first time they have mentioned global warming in any of their campaigns.[social_buttons]
Brent A. Wilkes, the executive director of the League of United Latin American Citizens, responded to the ad by pointing out that Latin-American immigrants actually drive about half as much as the typical American.
