The Real Cost of
Impact On The Environment, On Health Care And On Low Wage Workers!
(Washington, D.C.) -- The PBS program,
To The Contrary has announced it will offer, free of charge,
DVD copies of its three-part series on immigrationís impact on
various aspects of US life: on the environment, on Americaís
health care system and on low-wage workers. This fact-based
coverage examines how the record influx of new residents is
affecting natural resources, wages for low-income workers and an
already-stressed health care system. This educational product is
distributed free of charge to those looking to learn more about
the true impact of immigration, as it is rarely covered elsewhere
by US media.
For example, coverage of immigrationís impact on the health care
system included the fact that two-thirds of Floridaís hospitals
are running deficits, largely due to health care they must offer
for free to immigrant workers and their families.
To The Contrary's coverage of immigrationís impact of the
environment explained that immigrants to the US, who mainly come
from poor countries with small environmental footprints, become
high-end consumers who leave large environmental footprints. So
itís not just the numbers of immigrants coming here---increasing
environmental footprint exponentially.
the piece on low-income workers, To The Contrary explained
that since 80% of immigrants to the United States do not have high
school degrees, they are driving up competition for low-wage jobs
and driving down wages for low-income Americans.
To The Contraryís special coverage aired nationally on
PBS. Please submit your requests via e-mail to:
