Illegal Immigration

Illegal immigrants are a convenient scapegoat for our economic crisis. But with free markets and private property, the need for immigrant labor becomes obvious. Most immigrants, regardless of the color of their skin, are open to the ideals of liberty: private property, free markets, sound money, right to life, low taxes, less war, protection of civil liberties, and a foreign policy designed for peace.

Ron Paul proposed the following action steps for dealing with illegal immigration:

  1. Abolish the welfare state. The incentive to take a job at whatever wage available must prevail.
  2. Establish a generous visitor work program. Once we solve the economic crisis by introducing sound money, demand for domestic and immigrant labor will rise.
  3. Enforce the laws on the books with more border guards. Allow states and landowners to enforce the law and provide security assistance.
  4. Abolish birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants. [Current U.S. citizens will not be affected. Instead, babies born to illegals after a future cutoff date will no longer gain automatic U.S. citizenship. They will still have citizenship in their parents’ home countries.]
  5. End all federal mandates on the states to provide free education and medical care for illegal immigrants.

      Can we take our buildings, technology, and civilization with us? Since none of it existed before we created it here.

    Ron Totally gets it. He envisions a country open to all people who want to become Americans and is happy to allow legal immigration to people with skills we need.

    You can contact them through email or via their website. These filters use
    silica sand to trap foreign particles from the pool water.
    One of the most important steps in keeping your pool clean is cleaning
    your pool filters.

    Once the welfare state is abolished, is it not safe to say that immigrants coming into America should be welcome due to free enterprise, and whoever works hardest deserves it? And if they send money back, can people not then buy American products with it?

    I’m shocked at the weaksauce responses. How can y’all demand more government spending on immigration enforcement and more restrictions on immigration? Have you forgotten what the Libertarian philosophy is all about? What reason is there for government to put artificial restraints on the free flow of labor across international borders? Are you afraid of free market competition? The only solution that is consistent with Libertarian thought is to abolish government restrictions on immigration. If you want the government to build a wall, you should not call yourself a Libertarian. Go vote for some big government Republican instead.

    Not good enough for border control Ron, and we all know it. We need a wall built, no matter how much it costs. The rest of your plan is ok. We also should not allow people to sponsor extended family members either. Only immediate, husband, wife, children, and that’s it! We are going to lose our country. Europe is dying, and Canada and Australia are next. It’s sick and twisted politics, and it will end in a blood bath! Borders were created to keep the peace, not the other way around!
