"America needs to grow its population and do so in a thoughtful manner. We currently have a declining population of white, and frankly, of all, Americans. Left to our current trajectory, sans immigration, we could be facing the fate of Japan and most European countries: an aging and shrinking population resulting in lower GDP projections, higher per capita social costs, lower productivity, and a permanently sluggish economy."
This statement is simply untrue. Its presence ruins whatever credibility there is in this column. The fact is, America would still be growing even if we allowed zero immigrants (which nobody is proposing). Our birthrate is still above replacement level.
