    "The U.S. has one of the highest population growth rates among industrialized nations. Its fertility rate is just below the replacement rate of 2.1 children per woman, but its population has been increasing by almost 1 percent annually because of immigration."

    the USA's anative born population achieved ZERO PIPOLATION GROWTH way back in the late 60's.

    Our entire population growth has been the result of immigration.
