Immigration Control vs. Immigrant Liberty EducationSubmitted by Prescience500 on Tue, 08/20/2013 - 01:27
I've heard, for a while now, many people in the liberty movement talking about the need for secure borders. When I've asked them about why we need them, it usually comes down to keeping immigrants out so that we don't get an influx of anti-liberty voters.
There is an alternative to this, though. What if we instead we focused our energy to make a concerted effort to reach out to immigrants, even illegals about the benefits of liberty?
Students for liberty has made outreach all over the world and they've been growing rapidly. If they can gain a foothold in virtually every country in the world, I'm sure that we can teach people living in our own country about liberty.
For good measure, we would have to talk about it in terms of a person's home culture so people of similar ethnicity might be best situated to do the evangelizing.
If successful, we could have the advantages of a more open border without the drawbacks of extra anti-liberty voters.
