Trump Says Will Send 10,000 to 15,000 More Military to the Border
This is immigration hate on steroids. This is stirring up the masses the way Hayek warned they can be stirred up. (See chapter 10, "Why the Worst Get" on Top in The Road to Serfdom.)
Today, President Trump pledged to send even more troops to the border with Mexico.
“We’ll do up to anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 military personnel, on top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border. Nobody’s coming in,” Trump said.
How are anti-immigration libertarians going to justify this?
If immigrants are coming here to work, I have no problem with them. They will work only at places that want to hire them and live only at places where people want to rent to them.
How does Trump justify spending tax dollars to stop this via the U.S. military?
In addition to the direct government expense, there is the further fact that it will lower the general standard of living in the U.S. by limiting the number of workers available for low-skill jobs. (Discussed in this video:The Problem with Stephen Miller)
