Identify the cause: too many people

Why are so many children from Central America flooding our southern border? Why are so many Latin American investors buying all these condos currently planned or under construction here in Miami? There is a common answer to both questions: They can no longer live in their native countries.

There is a great cry to resist the latest surge of illegals: Send them back, put up a big fence, fortify the borders. Not a word of protest as the rich buy their way in by purchasing condos.

Developers continue to entice the influx from Latin America by building huge condos that destroy the quality of our lives. The concentration of huge numbers of people living on top of one another makes a few people richer, but exacerbates our traffic problems, schools, sewers and other public services.

There is only one way to solve this dilemma and that is to identify the cause: Too many people.
