Protectionist arguments against free markets disguised as immigration concerns.

Alabama has now passed legislation tougher than Arizona’s on illegal immigration.

One of the bill’s sponsors, Republican Sen. Scott Beason, said the law “will put thousands of Alabamians back in the workforce.”
Beason believes that thousands of Alabamians have lost jobs to illegal immigrants who are willing to do the same job for less money. That’s called “competition” and it lowers the prices for goods and services needed by good Alabamians.
He believes that Alabamian employers – good Americans among them, many of whom are probably season ticket holders for the Crimson Tide – should be prohibited from voluntarily hiring those that provide the best service at the best price.
These Republican arguments sound familiar, don’t they? I think we hear them from unions that want to keep competition out of the workforce. I think we hear them from protectionists that don’t understand Adam Smith’s concept of division of labor.
Like other Big Government politicians, he wants to use the force of the state to keep American citizens from entering into voluntary transactions. He wants to force his judgment on others and threaten those that do not comply with his judgment with state force.
Yes, we need immigration laws. We need to keep out criminals. We need to keep out members of anti-American groups. But we do not need to keep someone out just because they are cheap labor.
That’s the best reason to let them in.
