1. An Open Society Should Have Open Borders.
All over the news, politians, citizens and news journalists believe the U.S. immigration system is broken. If this current system of cutting off immigrats via wall is broken, new solutions should be considered. Capital and goods are exchanged across borders due to the North American Free Trade Agreement; it made it easier for business owners to invest in Mexico for goods to flow freely across the U.S.-Mexico border. However, repercussions of this put millions of Mexicans out of work and weren’t permitted to cross the border in search of jobs created here.The United States can learn from Europe and how well its countries harmonize. Europe opened many of its bordersAs Bill Hing points out, when the European Union was created, effectively allowing the free movement of EU citizens across the common market’s borders, a funny thing happened. Countries once known for their high output of immigrants, like Spain, Portugal and Ireland, became immigrant-receiving countries — a pattern that held until the worldwide economic crisis in 2007. Neither party can boast a record of fiscal responsibility when it comes to the border. The U.S. spends more on border enforcement than on all other federal law enforcement agencies combined. Americans are proud of their country’s history of harboring Irish families fleeing famine in the late 19th century, as well as Jewish refugees from World War II. Why not refugees from Mexico and Central America?
