If the GDP says we're out of recession because our economy is able to sustain itself without immigration, why shouldn't we cut immigration?

    The GDP cannot say such a thing. Sustainability is about environment. It it is sustainable, it means we have the resources for the next generation without raising the prices. In fact, the population institute said that the US rate of birth is not sustainable. So we still need immigrants. Otherwise we will be like Ygermany or Japan.

    Because the GDP is just a number, so it doesn't itself say we're out of a recession, much less the reason why we're out of a recession, those being conclusions drawn by economists, not that any economists have actually drawn either of those conclusions, most notably because an economist can only accurately say an economy WAS out of recession at least two quarters afterwards, not "is" out of recession as an economist can't draw any founded conclusions about the present moment being in recession or not since there is no macroeconomic data for the present moment, what with macroeconomic data only being available quarterly after a given quarter is over.
