Why do countries allow so much immigration?

countries nowadays allow way too much immigration into the country. This will be a bad thing in the long run because the country will end up losing its original culture and heritage when the population of immigrants gets big enough the countries original culture and heritage will be replaced with the culture of the immigrants.

    Have you been to a factory in the USA lately? They want to put a "Made in USA" label on the product. It is not possible to make things in the USA, and still pay Multi-million dollar salaries to the executives unless you hire very cheap labor. CEO's want 50 million a year, not 30 million, so they have to outsource, or hire immigrants.

    Their is nothing keeping them from hiring Americans and still selling the product at a good price. Greed keeps it from happening.

    Cause of cheap labor and business owners can get away not paying taxes.

    For the most part it's because their labor forces depend on young workers and previous generations have refused to have children. The US is a somewhat unique case in that it does have a sustainable birthrate but continues the importation of foreign workers to suppress wages universally and make housing more expensive (because developers like that). But we have a valid control group for this social experiment in the nation of Japan, which allows very limited immigration. So we'll see in a few decades if "conserving the culture" was a better move than trying to sustain an economy.

    The only culture that is changing is the one who lives in that country. For example, the YouTube community is not made of immigrants wanting to change the culture in America. It’s the people who live in America in the YouTube community, they are the ones shifting and replacing your so call “original” culture.

    Canadian couples have an average of 1.2 children, which is not enough to replace the 2 parents. Without immigration, Canada's population would be in serious decline. Other Western countries are similar.

      And there is nothing wring with a declining population. It is what the earth needs. The only things hurt by a declining population are Ponzi schemes.

    It drives down labor costs. That benefits the CEOs who control our government.

    Allowing immigration is part of their original culture and heritage. If they don't let in immigrants, then they will lose their original culture and heritage immediately, in the short run, not the long run. In the long run, they'll die, because a country needs immigration to survive in the long run.

    Immigrants come from countries across the world; not just one. So there's no one culture that it could even be replaced with (even if this happened, or was in fact an issue)

    Most western countries need immigration to have workers. They not producing enough children to replace themselves and support their ageing population. All cultures change we no longer have the industrial north, it lasted a long time but is now the rust belt, we no longer have the strictly agriculture south (or slave culture). The whole world is much more dependent on trade. The sheer volume of people on earth has changed what individual countries need to do.

    We started the US with mostly illiterate people, mostly working in agriculture and hunting, by the way they were immigrants.

    You don't think American culture has changed? It has and always will.
