Comment: Global Aging And Immigration
Michael Hodin of the Global Coalition on Aging explains in The Huffington Post why immigration is America's competitive edge in an aging world.

"Indeed, it is only because of immigration that the U.S. doesn't find itself in the same economic conundrum as Japan, China, South Korea, and the European Union. These economic peers are finding it increasingly tricky to pay for their "seniors" as they age. With their birth-rates falling and longevity extending, the math no longer adds up. … the U.S. is exceptionally young among OECD nations, despite its 78 million Baby Boomers who are passing into retirement. And it's the country's immigrants that are keeping the population balanced and preventing it becoming like Japan, Korea, and much of Europe, where over a third of their population will soon be over 55."

Immigration is a great American tradition. It was responsible for the birth of the nation, and fueled its growth as it matured into the largest economy in the world. Immigration not only continues to be the solution to the problems of America's aging population, but also holds the promise of its continual reinvigoration.
