    Its a tax on businesses, an unnecessary regulation and impedes the free flow of labor in the law of supply and demand. Labor should be allowed to flow to the employment where it is needed instead of this anti-capitalist funnel that is imposed by bigots wanting to keep people perfectly willing to work away from jobs employers want them to do

    Who is anti immigration?

    Is that the same as being anti illegal immigration?

    Your post is totally unclear.

    It's unclear to you because you do not wish to consider it. Laws passed to restrict the free flow of labor are anti-capitalist. Can you understand that?

    There is a difference btw anti-immigration and anti-illegal immigration (including protecting the borders and ports).

    That makes perfect sense if you do not believe in nations.

    If you believe that this world needs to be one world, a place where every man has the right to come and go without interference, then you are absolutely correct.

    Currently only CAPITAL, and those who have a LOT of it, have that liberty.

    Anti-immigration laws are anti-capitalist. They are laws specifically designed to stop workers and employers from being able to get together and form a business relationship that is at the heart of capitalism.

    Does this mean you would be in favor of repealing laws that stop Mexicans from going to the jobs in this country they want and employers wish to hire them for?

    Employing that logic, the very existence of nations is anti-capitalist since they ALL reserve the right to limit immigrantion

    Does this mean that you be in favor of a one world government where every man and woman was a citizen of the world?

    It is unclear, because you didn't explain your position. Just what do you mean by "anti immigration"? Are we to assume that you mean that there should be no restrictions on immigration at all? Are you supporting the decades old practice of looking the other way while illegal aliens stream across the border? Do you seriously want to simply dissolve the international borders and end national sovereignty? Or are you simply saying that legal immigration, the kind that limits numbers and screens out undesirables, should be encouraged?

    OK. The free flow of labor, Capitalism, check. Bigotry, check. Beside wealthy rich slumlords and robber barons and the greedy bastards that shamelessly exploit illegal aliens to line their pockets, who else might raise objections to illegal aliens? Only backwards ignorant bigots oppose illegal aliens? Yeah, right. I think the real racist are showing their true stripes. Your philosophy is behind what ruined American economy to begin with, so lay off the sanctimonious sermons already.
