New research reveals why America can no longer afford mass immigration Mark Krikorian has studied the trends and concluded that America must permanently reduce immigrationa€” both legal and illegala€”or face enormous problems in the near future. His argument is based on facts, not fear. Wherever they come from, todaya€™s immigrants are actually very similar to those who arrived a century ago. But they are coming to a very different Americaa€”one where changes in the economy, society, and government create different incentives for newcomers. Before the upheavals of the 1960s, the U.S. expected its immigrantsa€”from Italy to Indiaa€”to earn a living, learn English, and become patriotic Americans. But the rise of identity politics, political correctness, and Great Society programs means we no longer make these demands. In short, the problem isna€™t them, ita€™s us. Even positive developments such as technological progress hinder the assimilation of immigrants. Ita€™s easy now for newcomers to live a€œtransnationala€ lives.
