Allowing everybody to immigrate may have worked well before the 20th century because we had a frontier. Suggesting that it would still be a viable alternative now, in the 21st century, when we no longer have endless empty land to fill and even the poorest peasant from the farthest country can hop on a plane and get to the U.S., tells me that Jacoby didn't really put any serious thought into this column. If we opened the borders completely we would be buried in people.
