Immigration and the welfare state.

Milton Friedman famously remarked, “you can’t have free immigration and a welfare state.” There is a tipping point, even if the U.S. has yet to reach it.

Interesting analysis . . .

I tend to be less confident that the author about the causation, but liberty seems to compel an argument for free immigration. The discussion ending over on CATO debating liberty seems on point.
