Bad Economics; Bad Immigration

By Santiago J. Valenzuela

There is a link between bad thinking on economics and bad thinking on immigration.  The idea is presented most clearly in this article:

As I always say...For every illegal alien with a job, there is an American without one.

The economic ignorance is astounding, especially since it almost exclusively comes from conservatives, the so-called champions of the free market. Capitalism has proven time and time again that more people does not mean more poverty or fewer jobs. Government intrusion into the economy creates shortages, poverty and fewer jobs.  The US Government needs to get out of the US economy!

Let the economy recover instead of "helping" it with evil immigration enforcement measures. Let these people stay as guest workers and contribute to the recovery instead of deporting them at a cost of $6,000 per head!
