  • Feb 25 - Shutting The Barn Door

    Comment: Shutting The Barn Door
    Shutting the barn door after the horses have bolted may be an exercise in futility; however, elected bodies have often reacted with glacial speeds on pressing problems achieving just that circumstance. Demographic changes in many countries with strong economies (USA, UK, France, Germany, Japan, etc) imply clearly that importation of labor is necessary for economic survival. For some countries, such as Japan, this is racial anathema, and in consequence, Japan is committing economic hara-kiri (a procedure that the anti-immigrationists urge all countries to do). Other countries, including the USA, recognize the need for importing labor in large quantities on a permanent basis, but not the urgency thereof. What these legislatures ignore, including our very own US Congress, is that the labor-exporting countries are themselves in demographic flux, and will cease to have an exportable surplus of labor in short order. To take the one example most critical to the USA, Mexico's birthrate fell below replacement levels a few years ago (2.1 babies per woman). In other words, in 18 years from the day that that happened, no more Mexicans would be available to come over here in the natural course of things. The story is even worse in other parts of Latin America. It is going to get increasingly difficult to motivate people to migrate hither. In fact, we would not be a bit surprised if the US Congress authorizes payments to immigrants for coming to the USA in the coming decades. However, all of that is pure political fantasy today, when Congress appears to think that it has the luxury of deciding which immigrants to take and how many, instead of rolling out the red carpet for those brave enough to cast their lot with us. We view the CIR conversation within the beltway as one long talk which will ultimately result in throwing open America's gates in the distant future after all potential immigrants have ceased to have interest in migrating due to demographic changes in their own countries. However, we are not pessimistic - America is after all the great human experiment with a track record of doing things new and differently than before. We urge Congress to realize worldwide demographic realities and talk about how wide we can open our doors, not how tightly we can keep them closed. Let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
