Cutting off Family Planning Funds will Increase Immigration Pressure

Unfortunately, the current administration has cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

The relative tranquility in Los Angeles between the Christmas and New Year holiday due to significantly fewer people in town was gone by then, and the mall parking lot traffic lanes were filled by vehicles with nowhere to move – complete gridlock in a parking lot.
