Why does the US need ANY immigration?

Legal or illegal?

The importation of millions of Mexicans by the leftwing and businesses is strictly to serve their own political and financial interests, respectively.  They don't give a damn if in the process they turn this country intro another Mexico.  When vast numbers of people are imported form a different country, more importantly a different culture, in a historically short period of time, the need for and likelihood of assimilation disappears.  I can't think of another time in history when any country has done this.

What about the ONE MILLION legal immigrants per year?  Why do we need them?  I've heard an argument that it stimulates the economy, but that sounds a lot like a Ponzi scheme to me.

Remember when the libs supported Zero Population Growth?  If we get millions and millions and millions of more people, don't we need thousands and thousands of more miles of road and infrastructure?  Don't we need more and more power plants generating greenhouse gases?  Don't we create mountains of more trash?  Aren't the freeways more clogged?  ALL FOR WHAT??

Why, when they say robots will take over many if not most jobs, do we need more people?  I think we need LESS people.  We can import a small number of highly qualified people - but why import MILLIONS of people??

Yes - that was then and this is now:

Then: A nearly empty continent, getting immigration from almost only Europe, with the creation of a nation and state based on the best values of that continent, with room for all comers.

Now:  A long-existing state and nation of a distinct culture, with about 1/3 billion people, and no need for any more people.

It’s not a matter of *NEEDING* immigrants. At this point, we don’t. But we are definitely a better country when we bring in talented and ambitious people who want to be here and embrace the opportunities that America provides.

I liken it to the NBA. The league doesn’t *NEED* foreign players, but it has benefitted from bringing in the very best talent from all around the globe. The NBA truly showcases the best of the best, and everybody winds up winning.

- how many decades there was no immigration? - 1920s to - 1960s?
- economy was good from the 40s to 60s - wages increased

- wage increases better or worse for the average person after immigration started around 1970?

You're right.  Let's take your argument to its logical conclusion, why have population growth at all?  If the population of humans grows we need more roads, water, food, housing, etc.  What happens when the native population growth exceeds a certain amount deemed "unnecessary"?

Watched it.  A shotgun is for long ranged shooting.  That is why hunters like them.  An AR-15 is not.  That video was misleading.
