I've posted on this multiple times, that the US needs to shut down Immigration for at least 10 years. Totally shut the border and do our best to deport as many illegals as possible.
Why does the US need more population? The US does not need more population to sustain itself...IF the Welfare State is eliminated.
What is wrong with going back to 250 Million People? Or 150 Million People? Nothing in my opinion. Why have 350 Million people if 90 Million are living off of the government?
We fought WW2 and dominated the World while creating the best economy EVER from 1940-1995....all with a population averaging less than 220 Million people. Most of those years less than 200 million people.
We had less people living off the system, more manufacturing, more production and output. Less overcrowding etc etc.
There are many other things that need to be eliminated from the Federal Govt to make this work and I believe it is possible. But it starts with reducing immigration and throwing out all of the Uncle Sam Teat Suckers...
CHANGE MY MIND, AM I WRONG?

There are several studies that show that allowing some immigration helps a country avoid economic stagnation like Japan has experienced the last 20 years. Some immigration adds entrepreneurship and innovation; new ideas which help a country grow its GDP.
I'm all for some controlled immigration, just not open borders. Currently the US allows about a million legal immigrants per year which I think is too high.
I would agree that these studies showing some immigration are "historically" accurate. Take away the Welfare State in the US and I agree. My 10 year window takes into consideration removing all of the teat suckers before allowing any more immigration.

If you lock down the borders. The liberals can't leave.
Prepare for the worst, Hope for the best
Worry about the things you can control, Plan for the things you can't
I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number please.
