Trump's National Guard Troops on the Southern Border
The remarkably obtuse President Trump has taken another two steps backward by sending national guard troops to the Southern border to prevent mostly Catholic, mostly hard-working, undocumented immigrants from entering the United States. It is clear none of these immigrants would be taking the jobs of Americans. That's the lump of labor fallacy.
To stop them at the border when they are seeking work is to simply decrease the potential standard of living for us all.
If they seek welfare that is a different story. Trump should build a welfare wall but there is not a word about this from the stable genius.
Instead, Trump is making a bad enforcement action worse by sending the national guard to enforce this sad immigration blockade, it is a further step in the direction of the militarization of the United States.
Government should be shrunk not grown. The military should be used less not more.
Trump is the exact opposite of a libertarian. He should be attacked and attacked by libertarians every time he takes steps like these that expand the use of the state.
