The Times’ view that a recent decline in illegal immigration “would take some of the pressure off” refers to political pressure, not population pressure, which remains relentless. Fixing immigration does not require another amnesty. It requires border enforcement plus reducing legal immigration, which exceeds illegal. Only these measures can reduce immigration enough to stop forcing growth on Americans despite their low birthrate. Immigration remains too high so long as the nation’s population continues to grow, instead of shrinking back to a sustainable level.
