In way it is Karma given the history of nationalism during large immigration waves it's likely easier to just leave the border open. Who else is
going to make up for the lack of fecundity in established groups? The U.S. uses immigration as a way to keep a body of healthy, young people that can
do the jobs an aging and retiring population can no longer do.
For example, have you ever seen a group of 50 to 60's aged men try to keep up in a roofing job with bunch of 20-something "Mexicans"? Such a
side-by-side competition was televised awhile back. It's a joke. The older guys can barely manage it yet they think somehow they're going to kick
all those foreigners out and live forever doing physically taxing jobs.
Perhaps, once aging is a thing of the past but not now. Even that may not be enough and more intellectual pursuits will be needed since machines will
likely ultimately take over that kind of labor anyway.
