Words fail me, but it certainly appears as though there is endorsed in this thread over at Vox Nova, concerning the departure of an estimated 1.3 million illegal immigrants since the (glorious) failure of Comprehensive
National Dispossession Immigration Reform, something tantamount to vigilantism: private citizens undertaking to subvert the immigration laws of the United States, regarding their distinctions between American citizens and foreigners invidious and unjust, thereby substituting their judgments for those duly rendered by the people's representatives. An unjust law is no law at all, to be certain; but natural facts about the world, such as differences between peoples and cultures, for which reasons (in part) mankind is politically divided into nations, are not unjust.
Ironically, mass immigration is, economically speaking, one of the most regressive policies in the arsenal of the neoliberal/neoconservative/globalist establishment, one that not only adversely impacts the native-born poor and lower-middle classes, but instantiates that hoary principle of liberal political economy, namely, primitive accumulation - or, as we know it presently, the privatization of profits and the socialization of costs. The wealthy pay less for labour, and the rest of us pay for the aggregate burdens upon various social services, and often at higher effective rates than many members of the rentier class, who can avail themselves of the ultra-low marginal rates applied to capital gains. The top and the foreign-born-bottom wage war against the native born poor and middle.
Obligations radiate outward, in concentric circles, beginning with family and community and moving outward, attenuating as they go. And while what I am about to say is mere rhetoric, mere hyperbole, as I wish no ill upon anyone, the world would be a more just place were the last universalist to be strangled with the entrails of the last globalist.
