The press recently carried a story of a Mexican leaving home one morning, the father of seven children. He returned at night finding his family increased to ten.
These Mexican triplets, the Canadian quintuplets, both turn the calcium light on Amerind (American-Indian) fecundity. With no data available as to whether the French-Canadian quintuplets inherit Amerind blood, it is well known, nevertheless, that the very high birthrate of Quebec is due, in a great degree at least, to the Indian strain. Again, the fecundity contest in Mexico City some years ago showed peon families of 36, 35, 34 children.
It is this high birthrate that makes Mexican peon immigration such a menace. Peons multiply like rabbits. The enclosed diagram will remind you again how the law of differential birthrates works.
Under the circumstances, will you not do everything in your power to press for early passage the Dies Bill, which places Mexico under a quota?
