Because invasive species are, right now, endangering our habitat, water and food systems on which we Americans depend to survive.

To ‘Stop The Spread’ our incredible scientists have asked the general public to be on the lookout for such foreign invaders as the Asian Carp and Mexican Evil Weevil.

But how does conditioning the public to find and remove foreign-named species imperil a national immigration attitude which already tends to reject the outsider?

And invasive…native…who decides what that even means?

You’re about to wade into the moral habitat of history, biological imperative and the language of survival.

This is American Refugee.
