Immigration. While this was briefly discussed when covering citizenship, I’d like to look more deeply into the subject. There are some who believe that immigration or migration should not be controlled in any way but that all should be free to immigrate at will. I believe one of the reasons this is such a big issue at this time is the welfare structure instituted by the federal and state governments, using taxpayer funds to support non-citizens. I recently read an article by Hans-Hermann Hoppe (https://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/10/hans-hermann-hoppe/open-borders/) where he discusses this issue. In its basic form, it is property rights that should be the primary driver.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Oklahoma Congressional Delegation today urged the Obama Administration to reconsider its use of Fort Sill Army Base in Lawton, Okla., as a long-term holding facility for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC).
On Friday, Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that Defense Sec. Chuck Hagel approved a request from HHS to extend and expand the Department of Defense’s (DOD) commitment to house UAC on military bases. The agreement calls for the DOD to house up-to an additional 5,000 UAC in addition to the ongoing support for 3,600 children approved in May. The agreement also commits DOD facilities to be used through January 31, 2015.
