Even as an American war in the Levant looms, we shouldn’t forget that the critical issue of legalizing tens of millions of aliens living in the United States-as well as increasing the flow of legal immigration to this country exponentially in coming decades-will be addressed during the tail-end of a generally lethargic session of Congress. Although I don’t know if the Gang of Eight plan will be discussed at this event, I highly recommend attending tonight’s debate over the ethics and utility of free migration at Muchmore’s, a vibrant bar/event space located in that cauldron of clashing cultures, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Arguing on behalf of open borders will be a (David) Friedmanite originally from France. His opponent, a Hoppean who was born in Brazil, will argue in favor of immigration restrictions, at least as they relate to the American legal/constitutional framework. Which philosophy will carry the day? You’ll have to travel to Brooklyn to find out. Regardless, we should be in for an entertaining, illuminating evening.
