Can you smell what the Angus is cookin'?

Over at MR, LeBron asks for your most surprising prediction.

Here's mine:

Within the next 10 years we will (at least de facto if not de jure) have very close to open borders in the USA.

Restated in English: within the next 10 years immigration into the USA will rise dramatically.

You are right, that is quite surprising. The current trend is certainly in the opposite direction.

What changes do you think will lead to that change?

If de facto only, does that imply you see immigration skewed toward low-skilled labor (i.e., even more heavily skewed than would be observed with true open immigration)? Regardless, I hope you are right.
