Too often, fights about immigration in the US get ground into soundbites. “We are all immigrants.” “All Hispanics are illegal.” “Fence the borders” “On the Statue of Liberty, it says give us your tired, your poor, your hungry.”
Well, I am for immigration. I don’t particularly care for the people that sneak in to the country illegally. But the US needs immigration. They are valuable to the development of our country. Gary Becker has proposed charging for immigration, and I think it makes a lot of sense.
Here is a great immigration story to share with your children. Not enough people know about Tibor Rubin. I have met him a couple of times and he truly is an amazing person. He is an extremely cheerful person. When you hear his story, it will make you proud to be an American.
