My parents were born in Germany. They couldn't find work in Europe so they came here to pursue the American Dream.
As a libertarian I say ... let people come! There should be free trade in labor as well as goods and services, that way everyone is freer and richer.

Former Colorado congressman, Tom Tancredo, wants to deter illegal immigration by forcing employers to use E-Verify to identify lawbreakers, while added more security to our southern border.
When Special Correspondent Kennedy went to the border, she found the fence riddled with holes.
