If immigration laws are, as I hold, violations of individual rights, it is up to the courts, not the President, to determine that.
What happens when the immigrant does that, goes to the U.S. embassy and says, I’d like to work in America legally?
Dr. Yaron Brook, president of the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights, calls for an open immigration policy, saying that the government’s only function should be to protect individual rights.
Most immigrants recognize that America is the land of opportunity. If we let enough in, perhaps their number will offset the growing number of the native born who simper that America is the land of entitlement.
Keith Weiner examines the monstrous injustice of anti-immigration policy and the arguments used to justify it.
If there is a terrorist attack through our southern border, will Americans allow President Obama, congressional Democrats, the news media and progressives and liberals to deny that their weak border security policy was responsible?
Even as the federal government fails to control the southern border, it sends the Border Patrol farther into the interior, where Americans complain that agents harass people who are already U.S. citizens.
Americans who gather to protest the high-handed way this administration has sneaked illegal immigrants into their communities can expect the race card to be played against them. The time is long overdue to stop being intimidated by such cheap — and dangerous — political tactics.
Businesses should be free to hire whoever will help them to create most value for their customers and shareholders, regardless of nationality.
Immigration is not a cause of economic growth. It’s primarily a byproduct.
It doesn’t matter what immigration policies you believe in if you don’t control your borders.
“The Triple Package” is a book that tells us much that we all need to know about America — especially if we want to keep the welfare state ideology from destroying the American Dream.
I’m wondering how the hate-America/blame-America-first crowd might explain the fact that so many people in the world, if they had a chance, would permanently relocate here. Maybe it’s that they haven’t been exposed to enough U.S. university professors.
It’s preposterous to even suggest that banning any form of education promotes “diversity.”
Anything we try to do as regards immigration laws has to be done in the context of a huge welfare state that is already a major, inescapable fact of life.
Whose interests are immigration laws supposed to serve -- and whose interests do current immigration reform proposals actually serve? In order to have any immigration policy serve any purpose, the border must first be secured. Otherwise American immigration policy...
Britain's late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said it all when she wrote that the world has "never ceased to be dangerous," but the West has "ceased to be vigilant." Nothing better illustrates her point than the fact that the West has imported vast numbers of people...
If America were a totally free country – with no entitlement state, no “progressive” taxation, no socialized medicine and no Barack Obama issuing extra-Constitutional executive orders by whim and at gunpoint – immigration would not be a threat. In a free country,...

Since 1886, the Statue of Liberty has stood in New York Harbor as a beacon to individuals from around the world seeking the freedom to live their lives as they choose. On the pedestal of the statue is a plaque with the sonnet “The New Colossus”: Not like the brazen...
It makes no economic sense for an employer to pay $20 an hour for a job that is only worth $10 an hour.
Now that the Arizona immigration-control law is at the Supreme Court, it's time to analyze that law. There are two levels: the philosophic level and the level of Constitutional law. Fortunately, they both point to the same conclusion. The philosophical issue is my...
Newsmax.com reports: Illegal immigration costs Arizona $1.6 billion a year – a staggering 19 percent of the state’s budget – Gov. Jan Brewer said in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, adding that the Obama administration is turning a blind eye...
