Science mag pushes for more immigration

From a SciAm blog:
I am a first-generation immigrant myself. When my family moved to the United States from India in the late 1980s, I was a rambunctious four-year-old girl. I presumably entered on a dependent visa tied to my parents, but in short order we received green cards, giving us permanent resident status in the United States. ...

My institution is built on immigrants. We have immigrants in every level of our medical center, including in many leadership positions. But very few people understand the process involved in living and succeeding in America. ...

Therefore, for many of my immigrant colleagues, their rights to pursue their “American dream” are significantly curtailed by immigration laws.
Yes, American immigration law has some hurdles, but they haven't stopped India and other countries from flooding us with immigrants.

As she points out, many American institutions are packed with immigrants, filling jobs that would otherwise go to Americans.

The USA population has increased by about 100 million over the last 50 years from immigrants. It is the biggest mass migration in history. It is crazy to say we need more.

The more people we take from India, the more stories there will be like this, and the more leftist magazines like SciAm will push for more immigration. The situation is unstable. India has a billion people.
