FAIRUS 2001 Legal Immigrants 1,064,318

This shows that immigration is substitution for births.  If we stopped immigration completely, legal and illegal, we would just balance the effect of abortions.

LEGAL IMMIGRANTS, TOTAL (est.) 1,064,318

Illegal, who knows. Could be 1 to 2 million per year. Total here could be 10 to 30 million. These numbers are always far more than anyone imagines. 1986 Amnesty brought in far more people than even the most extreme criticis predicted.


And if there is a looming labor shortage (hotly disputed), it could presumably be countered by natalist policies—encouraging Americans to step up their below-replacement birthrate. Even the current high immigration inflow is exceeded by the 1.6 million abortions in the U.S. each year.

“U.S. Chamber Urging Country On Rome’s Path To Disaster”

I find it ironic that the US Chamber of Commerce is promoting a report “America’s Perfect Storm: Three Forces Changing Our Nation’s Future,” [PDF] (press release here). The report, by ETS’s Policy Information Center, contends that the convergence of three forces—inadequate literacy skills among large segments of our population, the continuing evolution of our economy and the nation’s job structure, and an ongoing shift in the demographic profile of our country driven by the highest immigration rates in almost a century—will have “dire consequences for America”.
