“Libertarian proponents of immigration controls inevitably run into four obstacles in their support of this particular statist program: 1. The non-aggression principle. This is the core principle of the libertarian philosophy. … 2. An immigration police state. Border controls come with enforcement. … 3. America’s system of immigration controls and the immigration police state that enforces it have come with massive death, suffering, rapes, kidnapping, detention centers, separation of children from parents, misery, suffering, humiliation, and abuse. … 4. America’s immigration-control system is based on the core socialist principle of central planning.” (05/09/24)
