    They are part of the same movement, and dependent on each other.

    Capital depends on an ever increasing supply of low wage, willing labor. Immigrants fit this bill nicely, since they come from poor countries and are willing to accept any work.

    Without this, the supply of labor would dry up, population would stop growing, and costs would increase, which would diminish profit and make business fail. Production and consumption would decline, asset prices would fall, and the economy would enter permanent recession.


    You can't have it both ways, America. If you want to remain capitalist, you must accept immigrants.

    Labor mobility is key to an actual free market. If not, we get bureaucrats making trade deals ignoring environmental and labor laws and killing our chance at competition.
    Butt fuck labor mobility. I believe in Nations.

    Lt Gov Patrick of Tx acknowledged the issue that party (Dems want future voters and Pubs want cheap labor) is the problem.

    OK, we accept immigrants. Illegal aliens, no. They aren't immigrants and can't be abused for capitalism like neo slaves for the sake of profit. Do you understand America at all?

    From 1925 to 1965, there was almost ZERO immigration into the US, and from the late 1940s to the mid 1960s - before the democratic scum passed the 1965 Immigration act allowing a flood of illegals into the US, was considered the heyday of the american worker. Learn your history, boy.

    Nations or feudal bondage? Feudal bondage to your count whose land borders you shall never utter to cross. But even if you do, the neighboring count will return you to your original village for not buying his visa.
