On legal immigration, and ‘who’s money is it?’

Let’s see. Large group of people intending to force their way into a country that is not theirs with the intent to remain there once in (i.e to occupy). That sounds pretty close to the definition of invasion. We have a legal process for immigration, and as a country are far more receptive to legal immigration than any other nation on earth.

Ours is a nation based on rule of law.

Our law prescribes the procedures for immigration. It is not unreasonable to ask those who wish to come to do it the legal way, and to reject those who break our laws in an attempt to circumvent our system. It is also a sovereign right of any country to vet those it wishes to let in to ensure those people will not harm the country, whether such harm is intentional or not (such as by disease). Typhoid, tuberculosis, polio, mumps, measles have all seen a marked resurgence in recent years in the U.S., attributable almost completely to illegal immigration.

Meanwhile, if you tax it, it shrinks.

If you subsidize it, it grows.

You CANNOT Borrow your way out of debt.

You CANNOT Spend your way into prosperity.

And there’s no such thing as “free government money.”

It’s taxPAYERS money that is taxed from the wealth created by the efforts of the private sector.

Nothing taxed from the public sector creates net tax revenue.
