The idea that immigration is the solution to the aging of American society has become an article of faith among those arguing for ever-higher levels of new arrivals. It’s not a crazy argument; it just happens to be incorrect. In reality, the impact immigrants can have on population aging is small. Immigration certainly makes our population larger, but not younger. Guest Steven Camarota joins us to debunk this conventional wisdom and suggest alternatives for addressing the challenges of an aging society.

Steven Camarota is the director of research at the Center for Immigration Studies.

This podcast discusses themes from Steve’s essay in the Summer 2021 issue of National Affairs, “Immigration and the Aging Society.”
