Fallacious Rightwing Justifications for Immigration Socialism

“[Ron] DeSantis ‘won 56% of the state’s Hispanic vote, compared with 44% in 2018.’ What? How is that possible? Could it be a ruse on the part of the Democrats to lull Republicans into abandoning their support of America’s socialist system of immigration controls? Now, don’t get me wrong. As a libertarian, I’m not saying that the fact that many Hispanics are turning rightward instead of leftward is necessarily a good thing. In fact, given the fact that there isn’t any real fundamental difference between a Republican and a Democrat, it really doesn’t matter whether they move rightward or leftward. The reason I point out this phenomenon is simply to expose one of the many fallacious arguments that conservatives (and even some conservative-oriented libertarians) use to justify their support of America’s socialist system of immigration controls.” (11/17/22)
