The 5 Best Arguments Against Immigration—and Why They're Wrong ...Yes, that is true, but he says: "low-skilled immigrants make things cheaper for all Americans". The biggest thing pro-business libertarians want is lower wages.
They take our jobs and lower wages.
They're using massive amounts of welfare.This one is true also, but they argue that immigrants don't always claim the benefits they are allowed, and thus they collect benefits at a lower rate than poor blacks do.
They don't pay their fair share.He claims that half of the illegals pay taxes. I doubt it.
They broke the law to get here and they're bringing all their relatives.No, not all their relatives. Millions of them are on waiting lists to get in.
They're not assimilating.They say: "By the third generation, just 25 percent of Hispanic households say that Spanish is the dominant language at home.
Maybe assimilation is not the best word here. Even when Mexicans and Hindus and others learn to speak English, they still do not become genuinely American.
Here is what I found most annoying:
More important, immigrants grow the population, which stimulates economic growth, the only way over the long term to improve standards of living.No, this is crazy libertarian talk. The USA would be a much nicer place if we had 200M residents, and a lot fewer immigrants. While immigration has raised the GDP, it has lowered the standard of living.
And of course the immigrants are not libertarian. The more immigrants we have, the less we will have a free society.
