Whether that proposition is true or not, it's clearly the basis for Ron Paul's support of open borders. He doesn't give a flying f**k about Mexicans' attempts to have a better life. he cares about the poor multinational that has the oppressive burden of paying people a living wage.
I thought that Ron Paul does not go along with most of his libertarian buddies when it comes to open borders. This coincides with one of their main theoreticians, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, stance against illegal immigration. Also, he is not pro choice on abortion.
Oh, sorry, I see where you corrected yourself on Paul's immigration stance.
