Default US Population Predictions/Immigration

Well, since the dihydrogen oxide thread has survived its yearly reappearance I submit this. It may have been on here a while back....I was trying to figure out who this guy is (he does look like a government bureaucrat) and when it was first presented? It was apparantly on youtube for 4 months but according to my personal emails it has a been hot again today....

I don't know who this guy is either, but he is not preaching anything new. It has long been acknowledged by demographers that the population of the US would reach asymptote within the next 30 years and then start declining, with zero net immigration or emigration. This was know at least back in 1989, because it was in a textbook I was using for a class I was teaching on human ecology in 1989 back when the US population was a mere 250,000,000 (it is now 300,000,000).
