Libertarians and Immigration Archive


Last Updated January 24, 2004

James Fulford writes: Libertarians (I am one) mostly hate the idea of immigration restriction, because it has to be enforced by the government. But as presently constituted, immigration is “just another government program”. When I hear New Hampshiremen complaining about socialist immigrants from Massachusetts and Nevadans complaining about the similar “Californication” of their state, I can`t help wondering how libertarians expect immigrants from real police states to vote.

We`ll be expanding this archive. Suggestions welcome!

(Peter got a lot of e-mail on this. Perhaps the expression “libertarian loonies” was a  bit intemperate. So was the passing mention of low-IQ libertarian loonies, in a Norm Matloff piece. However, “intemperate”is a VDARE method.)
