Koch-Backed CATO Institute: ‘Time for the U.S. to Have Open Borders’
The Cato Institute, a think tank partially founded by the billionaire, pro-mass immigration Koch brothers, is advocating for full open borders to the United States.
In an op-ed for USA Today, the Cato Institute’s Director of Economic Studies, Jeffrey Miron, says the U.S. “has nothing to fear, and much to gain, from open borders,” saying that Americans should “forget” about putting a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration.
Miron downplayed the negative impact open borders would have on American citizens, writing:
Immigrants will not flood into America, although the rate of immigration might increase. Instead, much of the immigration will be temporary. Return migration happens because most people want to be near their families, surrounded by their own language, culture or religion. [Emphasis added]
Crime will not skyrocket. Available evidence shows that immigrants are no more crime-prone than natives. And the additional immigrants likely to enter under open borders would plausibly be even less so, because they have shown respect for the law by not immigrating illegally. [Emphasis added]
MAKE NO MISTAKE THE KOCH BROTHERS ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS they are Globalists
WHAT IS GLOBALISM?
Sociologists Martin Albrow and Elizabeth King defined globalization as “all those processes by which the peoples of the world are incorporated into a single world society.” In other words, it is gradually tending away from the nation-state toward a single world government.
The reason that globalists want to get rid of national borders is because global corporations and their owners view borders as artificial boundaries that get in the way of trade. National borders make it more expensive to manufacture their products in other countries. If you get rid of the borders, there is only one government to negotiate with and there is one huge global market.
Another problem with borders, from a globalist perspective, is that they inhibit free movement of labor. Globalists think of humans as fungible economic units—workers are just another resource that goes into making goods or providing services.
Another word for this philosophy is neoliberalism. It is the idea that free trade is the most important value.
GLOBALISM IS THE NORM
Globalism is the orthodoxy of our day. The leaders of virtually every western nation are globalists. It is the editorial position of every major newspaper. The majority of CEOs are globalists. Every western university pushes globalist ideas.
There’s a good reason for this: Globalization is a great money making machine for the globalist elite. They own the companies that cheaply manufacture things in third world countries and sell them to consumers in the first world. They want to keep the gravy train running.
The heresy today is nationalism. Nationalism is the idea that the government of a country should do what is best to benefit the citizens of that country—not the multinational corporations who might have an office there.
