According to economists on either side of the United States’ political spectrum, the country needs more immigrants, representing an absolutely different position compared to the US president’ hard stance of fending off illegal immigrants.
To maintain our workforce and economic health, we need to significantly increase the pace of immigration in the US according to Shikha Dalmia – an analyst with Reason Foundation.
Explaining further, business analysts and economists pointed out the reduced birthrate in the country since the previous administration, at the least. They are hence advocating for more people, innovation, and capital being brought into the country.
Mass immigration in the US is a Myth
Shikha Dalmia backed up by the fact, revealed that with careful consideration, the belief that America is experiencing mass immigration is nothing but a myth. He said the opposite is actually the reality in the country – the US is a low immigration country.
If the country does not open its doors wide to immigration, a huge bottleneck for growth will soon be evident as suggested by demographic trends in the country which is pointing towards a severe labor shortfall, Dalmia said.
Without a strategic immigration move, the all-time low birthrate in the country is a pointer to tough times ahead. Despite this, Mr. Trump is not only hindering illegal immigration, but he is also putting tough measures in place for legal immigration.
In conclusion, based on the data available, Dalmia said the United States should be receiving at least double of what it is currently receiving as immigrants per year until 2050. He said this still will not amount to mass immigration for the country given that foreign-born population in the country at 2050 will be at about 26% at the rate suggested which is still below what is obtainable in Australia as of today.
