Open borders would double the world´s GDP. I used to be against it, but a lot can change in 4 months.
I don't know if you enjoy reading political/economic books, but I am currently reading "We Wanted Workers".
One main reason is that moving costs for those workers are incredibly high.
Talking into your laptop camera while having the option to show reference material (or so you can read something while looking into a camera) on your computer screen is much more compelling than a medium-shot of you in a basically empty room talking to an empty chair.
It is only one of the reasons. Another is that it depresses the wages of native workers, destroys our culture, they cost us tons in welfare. I can get a full list of the reasons, but it will take a while.

And she said many benefits counted in the study are going to U.S.-born children of immigrants, skewing the findings even more.
The center's report is based on 2012 data from the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation. It includes immigrants who have become naturalized citizens, legal permanent residents, those on short-term visas and undocumented immigrants.
Immigrants are more likely to be working than their native-born neighbors. The report found that 87% of immigrant households had at least one worker, compared to 76% for native households.
They behave like democrats. Many people are willing to do inconsistent things in order to satisfy their parties. 2 examples(one from the left, one from the right).You know that unions are actually very anti-immigration.
The immigrants are willing to take less money, so companies replace native workers with the low-wage immigrant workers.
But we came from Europe. Americans have Western ideals.
So, European immigrants have a culture that is more complementary to ours.
I don't see any British-Americans saying "Make America Britain Again". I can't say the same about Mexican immigrants.
You're assuming that the poor people who come here can't/won't vote for welfare programs. How do you propose we ban welfare, considering over half of current immigrants are on some form of welfare?
