How To Fix Washington's Disastrous Immigration Control Bureaucracy: Abolish It

America’s system of immigration controls is based on the socialist principle of central planning, a principle that inevitably and always produces what the economist Ludwig von Mises called “planned chaos.” Is there a better term to describe America’s decades-long, ongoing, never-ending immigration crisis?

The free market is based on the laws of supply and demand, which are natural laws, not laws enacted by Congress.
