Has anyone ever considered the philsophy relating to restricting the immigration of people for reasons other than because a particular individual poses a threat? Right now, there are many people in nearby nations who would love to come to the USA, but can't. Is it right or acceptable to restrict them? A person who happened to be born in one area of the United States has free reign to go whereever in the nation (s)he wants, accessing the resources (both natural and man-made, people, objects and services) available. A person born in Maine has the opportunity to go to California and make a fortune as an actor, or go to Texas and make a living in the oil business, or go to Silicon Valley to work in the computer industry. Yet a person who happened to be born in the Dominican Republic or Mexico cannot legally do this. Is it ethically necessary or acceptable to prohibit their accessing these resources, or is it ethically bad?
