For the past several years, there has been a running debate within the libertarian movement between libertarians who favor government immigration controls and those who favor open borders.
As an advocate of open borders, I have never been able to figure out how those libertarians who favor government-controlled borders are able to reconcile their position with the libertarian non-aggression principle, which condemns the initiation of force against others and holds that people should be free to do whatever they want Continue Reading
