Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theconservativetreehouse.com: “Wow – Simon Rosenberg Makes The Most Ridiculous Economic Defense of Illegal Aliens…”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Welcome to the dimension of bizarro world that is so far away from reality it creates it’s own gravity and inverts itself.   This position is actually being broadcast on national television.  Simon Rosenberg appeared on Tucker Carlson’s TV show to defend illegal immigration.  In his position he attempts an economic defense that he has carefully written out for recitation.

Rosenberg claims that because illegal aliens represent 5% of the population, and because the U.S. GDP is around $20 trillion – the economic value of illegal aliens is $1 trillion.

Let that sink in.  Simon Rosenberg is saying the U.S. Gross Domestic Product is an outcome of, or connected to, the size of the U.S. population.

For clarity.  There is absolutely NO relationship between the size of a nation’s population, any nation, and their Gross Domestic Product (GDP).  The GDP is simply the combined value of all goods and services produced in a country, minus their imported goods.  It has no relationship to how many people function within the country.

Robots and automation can drive GDP by producing products.  Phones and computing, as tools to drive productivity, can drive GDP.  Technological advancement and innovation can drive GDP.  The number of people within a country has nothing to do with GDP.
