What did libertarian Milton Friedman think about illegal Mexican immigration? (VIDEO)

Free market libertarian hero Milton Friedman was always the best at explaining economics. His speeches and Free to Choose documentaries have educated millions around the world about how free trade and limited government encourages economic growth and strengthens individual liberty. His position on illegal immigration however is one area where many conservatives part ways with Uncle Milty.

In this discussion, Friedman argues in favor of illegal immigration from Mexico. Here’s where the rubber meets the road between true economic libertarianism, and big government conservative tribalism.

    ” Friedman argues in favor of illegal immigration”

    This, however, is false. He argues against making immigration illegal. Big difference. He’s not advocating that people break the law, only explaining why they do, but also why the law is immoral on multiple levels.
