The Great Debate

September 9, 2013


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.

    We do not have a immigration problem. We have a enforcement problem. All we have to do is enforce the laws we have now. Secure the border, build the fence we were promised in 1986 and enforce E-VERIFY. Impose a stiff fine on anyone that hires a illegal alien. If they continue hiring illegals shut them down. These illegals would self deport.

    I saw that invitation from Todd – sorry, I am unable to attend. Could you do a live reportage for us? yours are always wonderfully informative.

    I’ll take a stab at it-although I’m a bit tired at the moment. In the words of a friend, it was an “epic debate.” I’m glad I had the chance to witness it.
