President Donald Trump's threat to close the U.S.-Mexico border has confused even his allies.On the broader issue of legal immigration, Trump seems to be shifting his position.Politico reported last week that Jared Kushner was quietly developing a proposal to increase legal immigration into the United States.If this is Trump's new and improved immigration position, the president might find his way to a powerful compromise -- real crackdowns on illegal immigration coupled with reform and actual increases in legal immigration. A new essay in the journal International Security points out that by 2050, the United States is projected to be the only major world power with an increase in its population.America's working-age numbers are set to rise by 12 percent in the same period.Without immigration, by 2050, the U.S. would see its working-age population actually shrink by 4.5 percent.Despite the rhetoric around it, legal immigration in the United States is actually not that high.
