From Ron Paul at The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity:
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent speech on immigration really missed the point.
I understand Trump’s frustration over the U.S. government’s inability to control the US borders and keep out those who would come to this country illegally. Trump was right that the media ignore legitimate questions we have on our immigration policy and he is right that special interests have a great interest in maintaining the status quo.
However, when it comes to really solving the immigration problem he gets it all wrong. And instead of making us more free and prosperous, his solutions will accelerate our downward slide toward authoritarianism.
First, let’s consider his idea of building a big wall between the US and Mexico. It is said that all one needs to get over an eight-foot fence is a nine-foot ladder. Or perhaps a shovel. So walls are never very good at keeping people out. But they are very good at keeping people in.
