.@elidourado: @bryan_caplan wanted to give every Haitian a green card. Are you capable of realizing how nuts that is? #immigration #tcot #p2

.@24AheadDotCom If it's nuts to stand up for starving people's right to sell their labor to willing employers, I'm a raving maniac.

@bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom for the Nth time, 'sell their labor to willing employers' and 'immigrate' are not synonyms.

.@soncharm @24AheadDotCom The ban on selling labor is the heart of the law. Countries welcome tourists as long as they don't try to work.

From @soncharm
@bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom Not so. Tourist entry is time-limited, immigration is not, and that is the main difference.

@bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom Plenty of ppl immigrate w/o 'job offers from willing employers'. The sets do not coincide. Stop equating them.

@soncharm @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom How are they not synonyms? Because people are crossing an imaginary line drawn by some government?

From @soncharm
@RomanP11 @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom because logic. a given person crossing that line may or may not have a 'willing employer' that's why.

@soncharm @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom I'm a little ashamed of what future generations will think of us. Closed borders is our slavery.

@soncharm @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom Manufacturing has moved out of California to AZ & NV to get cheap labor. Should that be illegal too?

From @soncharm
@RomanP11 @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom should what be illegal? manufacturing? not what I'm saying, try to separate 'jobs' from 'immigraiton'

@soncharm @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom seriously? you think they are just coming here to lounge?

From @soncharm
@RomanP11 @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom I think there are as many reasons for coming here as there are individuals who do so. 1/2

@soncharm @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom what's your motivation for blocking immigration? please don't say law. stupid laws not justification
soncharm's avatar
From @soncharm
@RomanP11 @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom You appear to be the one who, in uber-materialist fashion, reduces them/their motives to 'workers'.
Machiavelli999's avatar
From @RomanP11
@soncharm @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom And what's your problem with any of them?

“@bryan_caplan: .@soncharm @24AheadDotCom The ban on selling labor is the heart of the law." Don't ignore cultural shift from immigration.

From @soncharm
@RomanP11 @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom I don't 'want to block'. My position is v. modest: not illegitimate for state to restrict immigration
soncharm's avatar
From @soncharm
@ccjjclark @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom He does ignore it. He ignores all aspects of human existence not related to 'selling labor'.
soncharm's avatar
From @soncharm
@RomanP11 @bryan_caplan @24AheadDotCom That I may restrict someone from immigrating doesn't nec mean I have 'a problem' with their motives
