We are luring illegal aliens here with free stuff. Free healthcare. Free education. Special rights, privileges and immunities unavailable to even legal citizens. There are lots of reasons why we’re doing it…but I propose we stop doing this.
We’ve made “legal” labor so expensive, complicated, legalistic and impractical that “illegal” labor is a very attractive option, or sometimes the only workable option.
We’ve got “immigration” all wrong
I’m not an “open borders” libertarian. And borderless anarchy isn’t possible with humans (see I Samuel 8:6-20). So at least for some degree of control over communicable disease (we’ve been lucky so far), human trafficking, etc., we need to have some border security. If you allow that you’ve got a political government, and other states/nations have theirs as well, there have to be borders and jurisdictional limits to politicians’ rules. And I’m more about actual law and order than 99.999873% of the planet.
So don’t get me wrong.
But our current problems aren’t with illegal aliens, immigrants, or any of the laws and policies thereof.
