Obama (and Bernanke and Bush) Finally Solved the "Immigration Problem"

One of the most sensitive subjects for me to write about is immigration, since so many people who "think like me" on 99% of the issues disagree with me on this particular matter. (For the record, I think it is economically destructive and immoral for INS agents to force people outside the borders of the US merely because of their birthplace.)

But Lew Rockwell explains that we can all get along now, because foreigners realize that they don't want to sneak in here anymore.

Anthony Gregory's comment on Rockwell's piece is fantastic:
As much fun as it is to debate immigration, I always feared one day the debate would become moot and the question would become emigration.

Of course, a border system powerful enough to keep them out can also keep us in. Time for the anti-Obama right to stop calling for more border security, if they want to ensure their freedom to leave.

Dr. Murphy,
Well, not everyone disagrees with you on this issue and I just wanted to thank you for having the courage to not hide this particular viewpoint of yours! Frankly, I can't believe anyone takes the gist of the Rothbard/Hoppe argument against immigration seriously. From what I have read of it, the logic is appallingly bad and the implications that derive from it are, to put it mildly, quite ominous.
