No, almost none of U.S. growth is due to such factors.

The U.S. has had net negative undocumented immigration for many years, and legal immigration is 1/2 that of other first world countries like Canada, Australia, etc.

That's a good thing....you guys have the "lungs" of the planet. The amazon rainforest
needs to protected more than it is currently, very important, entire world should

Mexico and Brazil have been really, really successful in drastically lowering their birth rate. Despite what many misinformed right.wing Americans think.

India stands out for me....population increase of half the entire population of the USA
just in the past 10 years....not a good thing, they should try to do something to
curb that I think.

They encourage immigration.
Have you seen a lot more Indians in America and Europe these years? Now all the convenience stores in my town are owned by Indians.

I think a relative poor country with "democracy" can do nothing to curb it in a sudden. China forced the one-child policy in 1979, when the government had very strong control over the people.

China did a good job with that. Yes, I understand India can't do the same as they,
unlike China, are a democracy.

The presence of 43.3 million immigrants--and this does not include their descendants--in the United States has almost nothing to do with population growth?
