Immigration Reform Done Right: Reason's New Ebook, Humane and Pro-Growth

|

lmmigration reform is one of the very hottest topics of the day—and something that Reason cares about deeply and brings a uniquely libertarian perspective to.

Our new ebook, Humane and Pro-Growth: A Reason Guide to Immigration Reform, is a super-timely compendium of reality-based data and analysis on the best ways to fix a system that is plainly broken. Costing just $2.99, it's available instantaneously in Kindle, Nook, and Apple formats.

Edited by Reason Foundation analyst Shikha Dalmia, Humane and Pro-Growth pulls together the best of work from people such as Brian Doherty, Mike Riggs, Greg Beato, Cathy Young, Ronald Bailey, Tyler Cowen, Kerry Howley, Carolyn Lochhead, myself, and others. Every possible aspect of immigration is covered and policy solutions firmly grounded in our "Free Minds and Free Markets" philosophy are laid out in clear, compelling prose.

The book is fiercely pro-open borders and provides reams of data and case studies to support the basic case that everyone wins when migration is not simply tolerated but embraced as an ideal.

Immigration restrictionists will find much of value in the pages of Humane and Pro-Growth, too. Indeed, they will encounter the most comprehensive set of arguments for letting more kinds of people and more kinds of workers freely enter, work, and live in the United States of America.

Go here now to buy a copy for just $2.99—and for information on our volume of interviews with Christopher Hitchens, Ronald Reagan, F.A. Hayek, Thomas Szasz, and Timothy Leary.

  1. I’m beginning to suspect reason is just some elaborate scheme to get me to buy things to read.

    1. If that’s so, why don’t they ever shill anything worth reading?

  2. Does this book promote my suggestion of bringing the US to immigrants instead of immigrants to the US?

    1. Exopansionist conquest and annexation of the sources of immigrants? But then we’d have to clean up those areas, we have enough trouble trying to clean up the US.

      1. we have enough trouble trying to clean up the US

        Exactly why nobody would expect it to happen elsewhere.

    1. Shut the fuck up, you mouthbreathing, inbred yokel.

  3. But I don’t like being humane, it makes me break out in a rash.

    1. See, that’s what the internet’s for. So you can act humane without ever having to interact with the poor, downtrodden, and smelly.

      1. Odd, whenever I claim to be a humanitarian on the internet, people assume I have body parts in my freezer.

  4. “Edited by Shikha Dalmia”

    NO! You’re kidding me!

    1. That alone tells me I will disagree with the bulk of the assertations left in, given the previous commentary on immigration by Shikha…

  5. I love immigration (married to an immigrant, for goodness sake), but I just can’t get on the open borders bandwagon. Too much of the open-borders case seems to start from the “Assume the welfare state is dismantled…” hypothetical. My experience here in CA is that increased levels of immigration leads to pressure to expand the welfare state, not dismantle it. Maybe I’ve just missed the research on that aspect, and would love to see something that addresses it.

    Given the assumption of no welfare state, I’m in on open-borders. I just don’t think that’s ever going to happen, at least not in my lifetime.

    1. I assume you make the same argument against lower taxes and other libertarian ideas.

      TEH WEFARE STATE!!!

      1. Uh, yeah, no. Just asking for a plan to get there from here. Make the case.

    2. Immigration bill to bring in at least 33 million people, says group

      The majority of these people will be big government dependants, supporters and voters. This should advance the libertarian agenda, now and in the future.

  6. Go here now to buy a copy for just $2.99 – and for information on our volume of interviews with Christopher Hitchens

    How about some commentary by his more honest brother?

    1. Go back to sexually molesting your daughter and stop posting this bullshit here, you gravy-sweating microcephalic!

  7. I’m sure that the currently-proposed expanded immigration laws will be as diligently enforced as those already on the books. Background checks on 11 to 20 million illegals will be as thorough as those on the elder of the Bomber Brothers.

    The Democrats will add millions of dependable Democrat voters and Republicans will deliver to business millions of inductees to Uncle Karl’s “reserve army of the unemployed”. In short, a fair, free market exchange between two consenting Parties. This means everybody wins. Right?

    One does not follow the other.

  9. $2.99? – Outrageous. You are forcing me to choose between your ebook and my medical marijuana! You should be ashamed at such price gouging – worse than those insurance crooks!
