Most of people I know are against ILLEGAL immigration or immigration where they cannot be properly vetted.
Back to growth subject.
I think most of the "growth" that occurred during the BB era was the initial purchases of autos and appliances. My maternal grandparents didn't get a car until 1959. BB families have at least 3 in our neighborhood, and we had 4. Heck, as a kid we had 1 b&w TV, but I have one in the basement game room, LR, BR and one in the shop in case I want to watch a football game. (The latest TV is 4 years old and was a gift).
