Rates of population growth worldwide are generally falling but that's not the problem. Environmental damage and pollution are not proportional to population size, The average First World resident consumes far more resources and produces far more pollution than the many more Third World residents.

es.

Because not all undocumented are illegal. Being a refugee, seeking asylum status etc, are all quite legal.

But in any case "they" haven't changed anything, both terms are used https://www.dshs.wa.gov/faq/what%E2%...ted-immigrants

There are lots of programs handing out birth control.

More importantly, you have a solution in search of a problem. 50-75yrs ago, it was a potential solution. Today birth rates are plummeting. Africa is the only continent with a birth rate over 2.1 (replacement rate). Even in Africa, the birth rates are dropping fast.

It takes a while before lower birth rates translate into population reduction because people are living longer. Europe, Japan and USA all have negative population growth rates (via births).

China just finished their 10yr census and are in panic because their population may have gone down. They also face a possible economic calamity due to their 1 child policy as the working age population ages out and the younger generation is drastically smaller.

Overpopulation is a problem but birth rates are no longer the primary driver.

A few years back there was a very much intentional (they even admitted it) choice by the media to stop using the term "illegal alien" and replace it with "undocumented immigrant".

If words don't change anything, why would they make a change from the more accurate description?

Words have a huge impact.

If you want these dangerous trips organized by dangerous criminal organizations to stop, don't reward those who break the rules. Send them home. If you are worried about refugees, follow the processes for refugees that are already set up. When breaking the rules works, they tell their friends back home and those friends break the rules. So we can lay these deaths at the NGOs and the official immigration authorities and tacitly encourage these dangerous voyages.

That's the reason they dump all and any documentation that identifies them, their country of origin etc.. so the authorities can't send them back or disprove their stories/reasons for trying to enter illegally.. nor verify their claimed 'Child' status.

Turkey and Uganda may have a fair number but from having spent significant time in Italy over the last 30yrs, it's amazing how few Italians you see anymore. Of course, I'm sure many are "undocumented immigrants" flying under the radar and don't show up in the official numbers.

Nope, until they have their paperwork in order, they are illegally in the country. Even your 1st link agrees that undocumented is an illegal alien.
- Undocumented immigrants, also called illegal aliens

The 2nd link is just dancing around the subject. It's a classic propaganda article.

In the 1990s, Iran sheltered a staggering 4.5 million exiles from Afghanistan and Iraq, the largest refugee caseload any single country has handled in modern times.

Like previously noted almost all refugees are returned back. So the idea of masses of invading brown-skinned scary Muslims citizens stealing yer women is a fantasy, and not even a new one.

Re: Refugees at Sea
 
Evidently, the Biden administration has dropped “illegal alien” from government communications, directing officials to replace “alien” with “noncitizen,” and “illegal” with “undocumented”; thus, taking federal agencies out of the business of branding people, instead of actions, illegal. [by criminalizing the person, not the action they are purported to have committed]
As valhalla360 noted, in 2013, several news organizations announced a ban on the term “illegal immigrant,” including The Los Angeles Times and The Associated Press, because they said it lacked precision and broadly labeled a large group.

Here’s an interesting analysis of the question:
“Words Matter: Illegal Immigrant, Undocumented Immigrant, or Unauthorized Immigrant?” ~ by Jonathan Kwan

In the end, our choice of descriptors may just boil down to our world view.
Some of us will choose to describe people, of whom we disapprove, using the more pejorative terms, some of us will choose more neutral, so-called “PC” terms.

You can argue the level of poverty is different but the process is very similar.

People didn't flee the cities because of the color of the neighbor's skin. These cities built up, expanded and grew wealthy with a host of races present, so that doesn't explain it.

Crime, riots, destruction initially drove people out and then as things went downhill good jobs left. Those who were productive had options to get out and took them.

Eventually the political elite (often living in semi fortified neighborhoods with extensive and aggressive policing) would pander to the remaining population while ensconcing themselves in power at the expense of the common people.

You are the one who made the leap to those early productive members leaving being equivalent to refugees. I recall middle eastern immigrants back in the 80's coming into SE Michigan. They were generally comparatively wealthy even by US standards. With the work ethic coming from a much tougher environment they often did very well. While a few complained, they were generally a positive impact on the community. Of course, they were largely coming in legally with their paperwork done ahead of time.

Over time, it has changed and now they are largely poor illegal aliens or refugees coming in and the relationship has changed.

It's all a very similar pattern

Well aware. I have a Syrian friend trapped in Kuwait because he can't get a visa to any other country so his only option is to go back to Syria if he leaves.

That doesn't change the pattern discussed.

Once things go in the crapper, you have a very hard time getting out of the situation because the productive and stabilizing population is too small and holds too little power. It might not be open warfare in Detroit, but it's pretty darn bad and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. About the only difference is they are limited to guns and not rocket launchers.

So it leads to the very realistic question, should we be taking in economic migrants who are simply trying to escape the local economy when that undermines the country making it less stable. (no this wont' solve Syria but for other countries not as far down the road does it create a bulwark of stable productive citizens).

The term is unwanted ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. No European country wants them as they will bring nothing to European culture except division, crime and financial drain. The solution is for USA to stop meddling in Arab countries affairs and let Europe/Rest of the World provide help on the legal soil of the illegal immigrants. Some of these people are desperate, others are mainly young men chancing their luck. TBH this is not really a cruiser issue, it's political.

Syria? It's about Qatar - Turkey - Europe gas lines. Russia it's gas lines going (80%) through Ukraine to Europe. Some people call that competition, others war. All money and greed with some poor people caught in the middle.

There are refugees all over the world and European countries aren't even close to the top of the list of places they're at. But that you consider this some sort of invasion and threat to "European Culture" is funny considering that about the only unique commonality that could define a common European Culture is Chrisitianity, a very much Middle Eastern religion, much of it from Syria in fact, and not the only Mideast cultural influence that pretty much shaped the West either https://www.bbc.com/culture/article/...haped-the-west People in Europe along with all the rest of the world have been mixing it up with everyone else for a long time before this most recent panic about brown people coming over.

I won't for a second say the USA hasn't done some mucking up in the area but the idea that if the USA were to simply step back, Europe would step in and fix things is just foolish.

Ever since the Ottoman Empire became the sick man of Europe, Europe has been trying to "fix" things and it's gone down hill at every step. Most of the modern countries we see today were either former colonies of Europe or were formed by Europe via fiat rule.

Oil wealth definitely has been more of a curse than a blessing to the area but again, that was hardly limited to US interference. Much of the strife can be traced back in some degree to oil wealth unbalancing the historical power structure of the area and encouraging outside agents (pretty much everyone) to stir the power structure pot for their benefit.

It is a cruising issue when the Med is one of the most popular cruising destinations in the world and the illegal aliens are using it as a water route. That brings them into contact and potential conflict with cruisers.

Funny how you mention learning history and then post a link that undermines you argument.

The Schism occurred some 700-800yrs after Rome made Christianity the dominant religion in Europe among other places. It was a small Jewish sect before Rome. It then spread back to the Middle East under Constantine's approval of it.

But we are getting a bit far afield of the thread's subject.

That's deceptive. Yes, the rate of population growth is falling, however, that's like saying a car is still accelerating, its just not accelerating as much as before. But that means the car is still picking up speed. Similarly, the population of third world nations are still growing by leaps and bounds.

In 2020, more people displaced by extreme climate than conflict
At the end of 2020, a record 55 million people had been forced to move within their countries due to extreme weather events, more than three times those displaced due to conflict and violence, and costing economies about $20.5 billion globally in 2020.
People who migrated domestically due to extreme weather events rose to 30.7 million, or 75% of those uprooted within their borders, according to a report by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre [iDMC]. A record 55 million people in total had been forced to move at the end of 2020, with the number of climate migrants likely to be significantly underestimated due to incomplete data.

The world’s most neglected crises
The Norwegian Refugee Council [NRC] unveiled its annual index of the 10 most neglected displacement crises in the world.
Countries in Africa dominated this year’s list of the world’s 10 most neglected displacement crises once again, with DRC topping the list, followed by Cameroon, Burundi, Venezuela, Honduras, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Central African Republic and Mali.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has the world’s most neglected number of displaced people, according to a new report by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).
Unveiling its annual index, the aid agency said that a recorded two million people were displaced last year in the DRC. And with 27 million people, including more than three million children who do not know where their next meal is coming from, it has the greatest number of people in the world who face food insecurity.
