What the collapse of Toys R Us can tell us about immigration

In this op/ed, the former Attorney General of Idaho as well as the former Chief Justice of the Idaho Supreme Court, Jim Jones, makes an argument.  According to Jones, Toys 'R Us attributed its demise to declining fertility rates in the United States.  Jones applies this lesson to immigration:  "Reducing [immigrant] admissions would be a big mistake. Immigration brings a much-needed injection of younger people into this country. . . . Immigrants started coming to North America about 17,000 years ago, they have made this country great and they will help to keep it great if we don’t turn them away."
