    •  Declaring migration illegal is akin to (0+ / 0-)

      declaring what people ingest, inhale or inject illegal. It is part and parcel of trying to restrict personal liberties legislatively, using the law to subordinate, rather than promote just behavior.
      Of course, we've got a long history. In the beginning, it was segments of the population that were deprive of all their human rights; now it's the whole population that's being deprived of some of their human rights. The restrictions on migration affect both those moving into and out of the country's borders and even within. Even seasonal migrations in country, especially by the elderly, are resented and efforts to control them are embedded in the medical care and prescription drug programs.

      We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
