Hispanics, Muslims and blacks have high birth rates and are immigrating to the U.S. in droves. They will keep the U.S. population birthrate relatively stable. The problems is that these folks will not be adding but taking from the public treasury so the kind of taxpayer subsidized day-care-from-infancy that Ms Marcotte so values as the way to middle class white women’s ‘freedom’ from boring, career-stifling motherhood will likely no longer be sustainable.
Actually, the birth rate is 1.958 for Black Americans (including black Hispanics), which is lower than France’s at 2.02.
This is changing. The birth rates are falling around the globe, which includes immigrants here and it also means that there are less to immigrate. Hispanic immigration is currently estimated to have stopped, and it would not be surprising if it reversed, because Mexico is actually growing faster than we are now, and probably will for several years at least.
If we depend upon immigration to keep our population stable, and Latinos do not come, then we will probably start importing from muslim countries.
