They can afford it. They can stand to lose some people.

The US can't keep on having 1 million immigrants per year for another 50 years without becoming as crowded as parts of Europe.

Back in July,
I saw lots of Romanians and Ethiopians in Italy. Didnt know it was second only to the US in influx of foreigners, makes sense I guess.

Wouldn't it make sense that US and China were reversed? I thought migration usually follows jobs. Wait, I forgot about the whole human rights thing. Stupid me.

I'm actually surprised with the figure for India. My parents were vacationing there last year and the general vibe there is that no one wanted to leave(the atmosphere was pretty different when my parents emigrated). I think most of the people leaving are going to the Middle East which is weird considering a lot of those countries have streaky human/labor rights records.
