This is the fourth installment of the Libertarian Manifesto of Collin County Libertarian Party member Albert Meyer. Albert has been kind enough to share this with us. We hope you find it useful.
We will secure our borders and solve the illegal immigration problem through a common sense approach. We have military bases in 130 countries, but we cannot secure our own borders? We will reverse the priorities. First our borders, and actually only our borders, but we will deal with that later on. We will engage the country’s largest consulting firms and assign them the task of making facilities available to illegal immigrants where they can go without fear of being arrested or have their personal information exposed to government agencies. Illegals will consult with these firms and make a case for why they need to be given a work visa (not citizenship). This process will reveal a long list of good reasons to justify the granting of these visas. We will narrow that down to a few criteria, but an obvious one would be that the person concerned has a job, or owns a business, has a good and hardworking track record vouched for by a reputable employer and no criminal record. These individuals will be given permanent work visas, with no prospect of citizenship. If they fall foul of the law, they run the risk of being deported. They came here illegally. They cannot be rewarded with citizenship, but we can normalize their lives, because they have proven to us that they are responsible, hard-working individual and employers value their services.
To stop illegal immigration, short-term work visas will be issued to immigrants so that they can work here in the summer, and return home in the winter, without fear of never being allowed back.
Don’t worry about jobs. The Libertarian approach to economic liberty produces a surplus of jobs. This is strange notion in a country run by plutocrats where corporatism, bordering on fascism, flourishes.
