Nicholas Eberstadt´s column on world population is “much ado about nothing” when applied to America (“The myth of overpopulation,” Op-Ed, April 6). The population of the Earth could begin to moderately decline, yet America´s would still continue to rise. Why? Because roughly a quarter of humanity would relocate to America, given the chance. In light of that, the American people must begin to seriously debate immigration levels. Mr. Eberstadt´s theories on overpopulation, open borders, and globalization are not relevant at this point in time at least, not in America. With our population on pace to double in 55 years, does Mr. Eberstadt believe that his rhetoric can sway the majority of Americans who want massive immigration reform?
