I thought the population collapse problem (both global and American) set out in a recent Newsweek article entitled Birth Dearth would not only set some anti-immigrationist minds at ease but also highlight the brutal consequences of family planning around the world that have set almost all of the world except for the US up for a future of collapsing populations. It seems that the "indigenous" US population is in no danger of disappearing under a wave of immigrants after all. If one were to be really old fashioned and view the success of societies through how well they reproduce themselves, the United States and Israel are some of the only countries that seem set on a path of consistent growth in the immediate future while remaining modern, free and wealthy. I do not write to minimize the costs of immigration or the problems of assimilating newcomers, but some of the doomsday scenarios of losing our country to hordes of lawbreaking semi-hostiles appear to be overblown.
