WSJ Journal Editorial from 1984 Called for Open Borders

Anyone wondering if the Wall Street Journal's stance on the current "comprehensive immigration reform" bill being debated in the Senate (they support it) is a new phenomenon from this traditionally conservative paper can wonder no more.

It's not.

BizzyBlog has reproduced a WSJ editorial from July 3, 1984 entitled "In Praise of Huddled Masses." In it, the WSJ editorial board welcomes the idea of open borders, and labels those who would control our borders as "nativist patriots." (I guess that's better than calling us "scaremongering bigots.") The editorial also likens a border wall to keep illegals out to the former Berlin Wall, which was designed to keep miserable people in. Not much of a comparison, when you think about it.

I encourage you to head on over and read it in its entirety. As much as I am for capitalism and free enterprise, I bristle at the idea of America's corporate power players deciding that their desire for cheap labor is more important than not only our national security, but our national sovereignty.

Nobody would give much of a damn about this bill (except the unions, who are rabid against the guest-worker program deflating wages of their members) if we didn't have such a bloated entitlement program for our citizenry.

Why is it so difficult to grasp the notion of a series of smaller bills that do one specific thing at a time, i.e., border security? Why the need to cram a thousand-page tome down our throats?
