ABSTRACT
The article discusses restrictions on U.S. immigration from an ethical and moral perspective. Particular focus is given to addressing the contention that U.S. immigrants hurt the economic conditions of workers. The author discusses arguments used to defend U.S. immigration restrictions, including that they protect U.S. taxpayers, liberty, culture and property rights. The author provides rationale for arguments defending a liberal U.S. immigration policy, including that racial diversity causes the U.S. welfare state to diminish and that U.S. immigrants accept the American political system.
