My Stance on Immigration: The House Doctrine Or maybe "the property doctrine" would be a better description of my stance on immigration. Those of you who read my web site have probably noticed that I do not share the self-destructive 'mainstream' Libertarian stance on immigration. However, my stance is compatible with the Libertarian philosophy. In fact, I believe it is more compatible with the Libertarian philosophy than the mainstream 'open border' policy of the Libertarians. That is why I describe myself as a Libertarian Nationalist. You see, I think the Libertarian idea that property rights are sacred ought to extend to public property . . . you know, the land that belongs to we, the People. It's like our house. The United States is our house; we get to make the rules under which people may enter. Many people who call themselves Libertarians claim that this is unfair to people who just want to come here to work. But what about us? Why should what we want matter less than what foreigners want? No, I don't think foreigners are bad by definition. I'm just saying that, we should have some say as to who comes into our country. What if the government told you that you had to let anyone into your house who wanted to enter? You would probably thing that that was an unreasonable encroachment on your property rights. Why is it different when your government refuses to enforce the borders? Libertarians believe that government should not be allowed to do anything that and individual could not do. For example, I could not take your money at gunpoint and give it to your neighbor -- for this reason, Libertarians believe that the government should not have this power, either. However, you can use force to keep people off your property. Therefore, this is a power that government should have. Illegal immigrants are trespassing. We, the People are sick and tired of people trespassing in our house. If the Libertarian party adopted the House Doctrine, they would do very well in the next election. I don't think they will, though.
The good news, though, is that the House Doctrine is starting to be seen in policy decisions at the local level in these United States.
For example, the police in Hudson, New Hampshire, fed up with the Federal Government's complete lack of desire to enforce the immigration laws of these United States, have simply started arresting illegal aliens for criminal trespass on public property. The theory is that since they are here in violation of our immigration laws, they are trespassing when they are on public property. In my opinion, this is a valid interpretation of the law, and it is definitely compatible with the House Doctrine. Way to go, Hudson PD! Keep up the good work!
"Since May, Hudson police have cited nine people determined to be illegal aliens with criminal trespass -- following the lead of New Ipswich Police Chief W. Garrett Chamberlain, who gained national attention when he charged Jorge Mora Ramirez, 21, with criminal trespassing in mid-April."
Predictably, the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union is opposed to the idea of enforcing American law.
