Rick Sanchez: Country’s Future Depends On Immigrants

Our country has always depended on immigrants, now we need them even more.   - - Donna Poisl

Americans are having less sex — reproductive, baby-making sex — than they ever have before.

Last week, TIME Magazine had a cover story entitled, “The Childfree Life.”  The gist of the article was that increasingly, in our modern era, “having it all means not having children.”  The choice to not have children represents a shift in our culture and a new emphasis on “selfishness” that seems to be driving the attraction and growth of childlessness in the U.S.

As a result, the U.S. birthrate is at its lowest point.  Ever.  From 2007 to 2011, the fertility rate went down by nine percent.  In the 1970s, 10 percent of women remained childless their entire lives.  Today, that number is 20 percent.  And childlessness is on the rise across all races and ethnicities.
