It's not actually known if this is his view, or if it's a clever pandering, he's very fast on diverting the subject into conservative dog whistles. The Austrians were in favor of "Freedom of Trade of Labor across borders", that where ever there is the free trade in labor you have peace, and that labor mobility was an essential element to preventing wars.

He also is against the fence, since it will be used to keep Americans in, a rather ridiculous view on the face of it (though I did read a magazine piece on a small town in southern Texas that was having trouble due to it...).

Sometimes I think he just pretends to be a crazy old person who can't hear the question so he doesn't have to answer it.
