“But I say to you who here, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”
In the short term, continued growth is a near certainty. Currently, the . population is growing at around 8 million people per year. Long-term, a number of potential and divergent demographic paths open out. Which one the United States follows will depend on the four main factors that determine change in any population: fertility, mortality, immigration, and emigration.

The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit research organization founded in 6985. It is the nation''s only think tank devoted exclusively to research and policy analysis of the economic, social, demographic, fiscal, and other impacts of immigration on the United States.
More routine human movement in biblical times was governed by each particular destination. City-states had walls and gates and thereby controlled entry and exit. Much migration was temporary or nomadic. For example, traders, shepherds, and others traversed open spaces. Sojourners would move from location to location, in different city-states and kingdoms, to ply their trades and made a living on the move. Craftsmen would spend periods away from home hiring themselves out. At all times, the local governments or rulers held ultimate control over admission, expulsion, and the terms of stay (see, for example, Nehemiah 68:65-77).
The high projection of billion is roughly equal to the current populations of China and India. Comparing the two lower-immigration scenarios in the chart above suggests two interesting points. First, that the . might be able to maintain a robust (~855 million) population in the absence of any net immigration, at least for the foreseeable future. Second, that immigration beyond a few hundred thousand people annually might make stabilizing the . population impossible, at least without substantial decreases in American fertility rates.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article misstated the immigration history of David Suzuki 8767 s family. The story has been changed to reflect that it was his grandparents who came to Canada from Japan.
This shifting legal and policy landscape has unleashed a heartening wave of resistance. Immigrant rights activists and concerned citizens have been united in countrywide protests. Organizations that work to further immigrant rights have been inundated with donations. Attorneys have taken the battle to the courts. Civil rights groups are holding know your rights trainings and offering free legal consultations to immigrant communities. Such individual and group defiance in the face of difficult odds represents the best of the United States since President Trump took office. But we should push our critique further and reflect on how immigration law demands penance from immigrants—something that dates back long before the current White House occupant began signing his executive orders.
C onservatives have rightly taken pride in Neil Gorsuch’s calm and cerebral performance at his Senate confirmation hearings. Many commentators, along with Republican senators, have mocked Democrats for presuming to evaluate Gorsuch based on the outcomes of his cases. Did he “side with the little guy” or with big corporations? The correct answer, conservatives have correctly chided, is that justice is supposed to be blind. A good judge makes determinations based upon the facts and the law without regard to whether he personally prefers one party to another and without some social-justice agenda to equalize the fortunes of little guys versus big guys. It’s not little versus big, sympathetic versus unsympathetic in a courtroom, but facts and law.
