    Out of curiosity op, do you think a country should prioritize its own people before those around the country?

    Just want to see if we’re on the same page here.

      A good example of a culture equilibrium collapsing is Germany and Sweden. An influx of people that don’t respect culture and law of a country significantly changes it (for better or worse).

      Hahah Sweden is still pretty white man. I like how whites flip out when 5% of the population becomes brown

      Number of whites is irrelevant, friend

      Yet statistically the “influx” of people who come to the US obey laws more than people who were born here.

      “Equilibrium” is just some made up metric- how do you find it, how is it measured, what arbitrarily determines “balance”?

      I don’t think the US is at risk, currently, from upsetting such equilibrium. I state countries in which it is happening in real time.

      And the equilibrium I’m referring to is bringing in as much people as possible without disturbing society as a whole. Our laws and culture as a whole shouldn’t change significantly from the people that come here. The people that come here should learn our culture and obey our laws, as you stated.

      But what is this equilibrium, how is it found or measured?

      Equilibrium is important. You don't want huge or rapid discontinuities in the fabric of a stable society. But the equilibrium of the US requires lawful immigration of skilled people. Admitting 100k or 150k skilled folks every year when the population size is 300M hardly tilts the equilibrium in any meaningful way. It also adds the necessary amount of competition in the natives about working hard and raising successful families.

      Also, US is at a major cultural cross road. Half of all children born in this country are born to mother's born abroad. If you don't have good sized legal immigration, the population is going to die out.

      Having spoke to several Caucasians in the Bay area, I can attest that the Indian community has positively influenced the local Caucasian community. They see Indian family working their ass off, raising their children and getting ahead in life. This rubs off on many others. Of course, there are still the Tinder holdovers. But imagine a situation where there are no positive role models and fucking/partying is everything.

      But what is this equilibrium? What comprises it, how’s it measured, what’s equilibrium stand at now? What are the opposing forces that can find equilibrium?

      This word in the abstract has no meaning.

      We are dealing with subjectives of macro economy and culture. You are not going to get a precise definition because all studies on these topics are still at a primitive stage without grounded theories or a tangible science.

      But people can still perceive a continuity in a way of life and right now it *feels* to be headed in a totally different way than they imagined. A lot of Americans want their life to be the way their Grandpa did-- study liberal arts, have a well paying white collar job, have plenty of free time, nice home and car, etc. This is the American dream that was sold to generations of Americans. Problem is that the world and the underlying ecomonics have changed. And the blame falls on those jawbs stealin foreigners.

      Then to take it away from a meaningless abstraction, people want a social safety net, affordable homes, job stability, affordable education.

      These things changed, but as you said immigrants do not control these things. But state and national governments and industry does control these things and have consciously pivoted towards a lean economy for workers and the general population.

      Europe made cuts that America has made over 40 years in the last 10 years or less since the recession... and suddenly the far right there blames immigrants for “destabilizing society”.

      Hmmmm... sounds like standard scapegoating. Don’t look at the neoliberal cuts we’re making... it’s probably the fault of those guys with no power and influence in society!

    That seems to be the liberal mantra.

    Country’s GDP growth rate is directly proportional to the young population of the country. That’s a fact across the globe.They contribute more to the country and expect less from the government systems. Legal immigration statistics shows that majority of them fall between the age 25 and 45. The best productive age of one’s life. No matter what they work on ( tech or non tech) , they are contributing to country’s productivity. Are they doing it by replacing American workers? Probably. But, isn’t it inevitable? If you are making a global products and competing globally, it’s simple to understand that you must have best possible combination of human resources and costs(pay and benefits) incurred to sustain and succeed. How does restricting hiring to local help competing globally ?

      OP
      America's relationship status with immigrants is "it's complicated". Ameeican companies want more skilled people so that they can compete globally but the government is dumb and putting all sorts of restrictions. They don't regulate guns but want to regulate the shit out of legal immigration. Sigh.

      Isn’t half of Niger’s population under 18? Or are we talking just number of young people overall and not relative to the population of the country?

    OP
    It's not just enough if the population is under 18 you need to have good institutions that can educate the youths. India is not the leader but it does have some quality institutions to produce skilled tech workers.
