Immigration is simply a different form of the word migration. I don't really understand how migration ties into property at all. Unless you are preventing someone from migrating.

How is not stealing? Well, there's no taking of your property.

I agree but this of course is a different discussion. IE, if you want to come here, I see no rational reason to stop you. It's more OUR fault as a nation that when you arrive, we might start giving you shite at taxpayer expense.

That's really a discussion separate from the "movement" discussion.

Immigration from California to Texas isn't stealing so I don't see how it is in any other case.

Again, two separate discussions are being conflated into one.

If some dude just wants to move so he can make a better living and by "make" I do mean MAKE a better living, then I see no real issue.

As for welfare and handouts. Well, I'm fine with saying, "you can come here, but you aint going to receive welfare on your arrival. Perhaps a time window of being self sufficient while here should be in order to avoid people simple crossing the border for welfare benefits?

In any case, the welfare is separate to me from the movement. I'm a fan of freedom.

Well then you should focus your solutions on the problem (paying for the movement).



Agreed. But until there are massive changes in the welfare state (which won't happen in our lifetimes), I'm against, even though I support freedom of movement ideologically. There would also be a major issue with the US having no borders coming in, but many other countries maintaining their own. Plus countries like the UK and France, with relatively open borders, are kind of a mess with race/political relations (though obviously we're not doing great ourselves).

I could come around to this but the problem is that
you shouldn't be allowed to cross the border and
feast on government goodies paid for by taxpayers on day one.

The pilgrims endured some harsh consequences when they showed up.
When the Mayflower landed, no one handed them shite.



Might have had something to do with no one having anything to give them.....and their fear of natives coupled with the arrogance that surely savages could not have anything worth having anyway...

I hear some good things about the Czech Republic but I don't have any detail. Do you know anything about it?


The Czech Republic is a cesspool. A good % of the population has no work ethic at all and another large % are subject to exploitation at the hands of Russian mafia. It is a beautiful country but it has some serious issues. Poland, on the other hand, is doing all sorts of things to break lose from the former USSR.

Somalia would be the ultimate destination for those of you who think man is better off with no Government. In Somalia you can be anything your lack of compassion and ethics will allow you to be. All you have to do is be the "fittest" and you will survive....

Honestly, there is no such thing as private property in this country. Skip your property tax payments and find out how long you get to keep it...


Yep. Everyone just leases from the thieves.

If you don't pay taxes in Texas yet use government resources then you certainly are stealing.

And he is absolutely right. What you consider immigration, is really just freedom of movement.



i guess so but a country should still have the power to protect themselves from possible threats from immigration. For example drug wars, terrorism and other things. Immigration is a good thing and should be encouranged but it should be far from just open boarder where people can bring in what ever the F they want.

another thing this country sometimes treats immigrants like they are less then human especially immigrants from latin america. Oh look its a mexican working at a factory he must be illegal lets call ICE and get them to treat him like crap. I've heard stories where border potrol won't even give a group of illegal immigrants water after they had been in the heat for a few days. I have no problem with immigration control just treat them like humans. Not animals.

Is it my property?


We pay taxes for its upkeep in national forestry, on public lands of all kinds, for the roads that take you from one place to another, private property taxes, etc. Yes, it is our land, and your land, and we do have a say in who comes in. We also have a constitution that mandates the government's duty to protect us from invasion.

It's very much like your own private home and land. You have a say in who can come in and stay as a guest, or if you wish, who can stay permanently and live there. We aren't a Marxist state YET, and so the work you put into life, your labor that translates into money you pay for it and its upkeep means something, and that is recognition of your owning a home when you go through the steps to own that home. You can't just take a stroll out in the country, pop up a tent and begin constructing shelter and say it's yours, and neither can someone walk into your home and take possession of it because they question your legitimate hold on the property.

I think many on this board would be willing to offer the compromise of open borders for entitlement overhaul.

Freedom of movement seems pretty basic to me.



So if someone wants to move into your home, that you built it is OK as that is their natural right?

The family, tribe, city, state also have rights through a social contract.

Really, there is no rational reason for immigration control? Not one? It has been madness for thousands of years for societies to organizes and control their territory from others?

Geghis Khan should have been welcomed? Building walls around cities was a mistake. The population of Bangladesh has a natural right to come to the US and get public housing and medicaid?


There are a lot of fricking morons that post here but you can really get on a role.

Yup as long as they immigrate legally. The same rights as you have.

IMO the solution to immigration is simple. You want to be an American, defend America. Enlist in a branch of the military for no less than 4 years.

Sovereignty trumps this.

If a sovereign nation does not want you there, you best not try to go there (think trespasser in home).

If a sovereign nation has rules/regulations (laws) for you to enter, better follow them (think admission to a college/club).

How can laws of man intefere with the natural right of immigration?

You are an idiot. Why do we want a military of foreigners who do not speak English? What about people unable to serve. The military is to defend the nation, not serve as a filter for immigration you douche.



Do you read the stupidity you write before you press submit?
