Immigration and the Environment

It looks like Democrats and other leftists now have a reason to be against immigration: immigration apparently harms the environment, since poor people come to America in the hopes of increased consumption and increased consumption necessarily, in their view, leads to environmental damage. Hence, they now have another environmentalist reason to prevent poor people from bettering their lives. See here and here.
