I would say your statement is probably correct. Organisms live where the environment permits them to. You couldn't smuggle a penguin in a backpack and plunk it in NM expecting it to thrive.

This does remind me of the many news stories in the 90's warning that killer bees were creeping into the US. I'm sure they have continued migrating north, but I don't hear that in the news anymore.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. -H.L Mencken.
