Removing all immigration restrictions is a pretty fringe idea. There are reasons for that, as a careful reading of this defense at Vox will show. Dylan Matthews is trying to justify an ideological belief by claiming that indulging it will have no costs on anyone, and what costs it does have can be compensated, and anyway those costs don’t matter because the gains to non-Americans are so much greater.
He makes those second two points because his claim that there are no costs is complete bullshit.
Some Vox columnists have a skill at making me recoil from positions I hold. That is some sort of talent.
Is it worth fisking the article? I will, but only if there is demand.
