Despite all their stumping, interviewing and debating, neither presidential candidate Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump has mentioned one of the most pressing challenges facing the United States: overpopulation.

America’s national elections in 2014 were a significant turning point, as is our impending election in 2016. Our two-party system is now in jeopardy. The millions of illegal immigrants in our country constitute, politically, America’s current sleeping giant.
