    I love it when LPHQ works with the awesome libertarian academics at GMU.

    Here is a preview of the Migration plank change I’ll be proposing on the 2012 PlatCom:

    We support the removal of governmental impediments to free trade. Political freedom and escape from tyranny demand that individuals not be unreasonably constrained by government in the crossing of political boundaries. Economic freedom demands the unrestricted movement of human as well as financial capital across national borders. However, we support control over the entry into our country of foreign nationals who pose a Freedom of movement should therefore be without constraints as long as migrants pay for any costs they impose on others, do not trespass, and pose no credible threat to security, health or property.

    Looks pretty good Brian. I’d like to see what others here have to say.
