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

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.

Nonsense. We take in 1.2 million legal immigrants a year. Where do you think they are coming from?

The nation’s immigrant population (legal and illegal) reached 40 million in 2010, the highest number in our history. The U.S. immigrant population has doubled since 1990, nearly tripled since 1980, and quadrupled since 1970, when it stood at 9.7 million.

Of the 40 million immigrants in the country in 2010, 13.9 million arrived in 2000 or later making it the highest decade of immigration in American history, even though there was a net loss of jobs during the decade. Growth in the immigrant population has primarily been driven by high levels of legal immigration. Roughly three-fourths of immigrants in the country are here legally. With nearly 12 million immigrants, Mexico was by far the top immigrant-sending country, accounting for 29 percent of all immigrants and 29 percent of growth in the immigrant population from 2000 to 2010. The median age of immigrants in 2010 was 41.4 compared to 35.9 for natives.
