How to Solve the Immigration Crisis Fast, Easy, and Cheap!

immigrationNo, I’m not kidding. I can solve the immigration and refugee crises without more wars, without rounding people up like animals, and while boosting the GDP. It’s not hard. All you have to do is stop thinking inside the same old status quo.

Here’s the plan:

#1: The Fed provides loans to build new cities. Seeing that they were recently spending $85 billion per month buying up mortgage debt and Treasuries, we’ll take that as a cap. We’ll buy up farmland (or forest or desert) and start installing utilities. There’s such an incredible amount of open land that we’ll have thousands of spots to choose from.

#2: The federal and state governments forbear all income taxes from anyone who opens a business in the new cities for as long as they operate those businesses. Think they’ll come?

#3: The federal and state governments forbears all taxes from undocumented immigrants (and their families) who choose to reside in the new cities. They also forebear all enforcement of immigration laws upon them. Wanna bet they’ll show up?

#4: The federal and state governments forbear all taxes, regulations, fines, bases, offices, employees, services, and impositions for 100 years in the new cities. “Outside the status quo,” remember?

#5: The federal and state governments guarantee that entry and exit to/from these cities will be unimpeded.

#6: Federal and state governments agree that they will provide no welfare, disability, or any other handout programs in the new cities for 100 years. We don’t want a dependent class.

Oh, and one more thing:

#7: No person or corporation who has done business with any federal or state government over the past 10 years shall be considered for any such loans; nor shall anyone with more than incidental political involvement. A panel of radical anarcho-capitalists shall decide.

There are a few fine points that could be added, but these seven major points just about do it. The plan falls short of philosophical perfection (witness the Federal Reserve being named in it), but it had to be something that would work tomorrow morning, and this would.

And Then…

And then we’ll have an excellent free-for-all. These cities would become the places to be. Businesses would start looking for facilities the next morning. Hundreds of them, maybe thousands. Immigrants would flock to the cities.

Libertarian and entrepreneurial types, disgusted by the status quo, would load up and drive to the new cities just to get away from regulations. Nonconformists of a dozen descriptions would start buying property, even without tax breaks.

These cities would, within only a few years, become the coolest places on the planet – by far.

But…

That’s right, there won’t be any government-provided policemen or courts. And yes, I know how many people have been trained to freak out about that: “It will be murder, death, and mayhem!”

I’ll be taking bets on that one.

The people who come to these cities would be coming to escape from their chains and to be productive. Those are precisely the kinds of people who clean up a town. And with no taxes to pay for 100 years, they’ll have plenty of extra money to spend on whatever security services (or whatever else) they need.

And the Results…

These would be the results:

  1. The plan will cost the various governments nothing at all. (I’m presuming here that the loans would be repaid… which should be almost a cinch.)

  2. The skittish citizens who can’t sleep at night because of immigration could all relax; all of the scary people would be in new cities and wouldn’t be terrorizing them anymore.

  3. This would definitely juice the GDP.

  4. 10 cities of a million people each would be easy to build. Just ask the Chinese.

  5. Most of the usual troublemakers would separate from the status quo, and stop bothering them.

  6. Fun, innovation, and progress.

So, why not?

And this same model might do nicely in Europe. They have plenty of empty land too.

  1. Great concept, Paul. Chances of such a sane plan being adopted? -73! Our gubmints will refuse to give up controlling the public. They’ll come up with dozens of “reasons why”? And give up taxes??? Surely, you jest! LOL

  2. Your proposed new cities would probably work-out well. However logical the suggestions are, they won’t be considered because the controllers value control over any ideas that can provide reason and freedom. Control is in their genes! Maybe such a proposal could be considered after the break-down of the USA federal system.

  3. These lawless enclaves sound too much like Detroit. This country no longer benefits from unskilled workers other than as replacements for the ones we buy off with welfare. Cut off the free benefits and watch them line up for those jobs our citizens wont do. Watch the illegals scurrying back home.
    As for costs, why not support building fences with duties from Mexico’s exports that are now given a free ride in competition with US companies? Pay for bussing illegals home with property confiscations. Pay for employment enforcement with heavy fines on the transgressing companies and individuals.
    Solved with no cost AND with no festering fake cities to be exploited by future politicians. And what is that nonsense about free travel out of them? The strong man rule will take over and soon make them into a hell with most people fleeing.
    Metastasis..

  4. Freeman, I hope this is satire. Because the whole thing falls apart from step #1. “The Fed provides loans.”
    The FED is NOT a bank! Thus, it cannot provide loans. At best (and worst) the FED is a clearing house. [That is what a central bank is. Not a “bank” in the academic sense of “banking.” Why central banking and “centralism” will ultimately fail ..]
    That is being way too generous. The FED is the world’s premier MONEY LAUNDERING operation ..
    At some point, we as a society are going to be forced (because we will not do this willingly) to examine and re-examine Zinskauf and the concept and/or practice of Zinsen. We are two years away from the 500th anniversary of the one that last brought this matter to the attention of the larger populace of the planet. Since that time to the present, we have ignored this. And we are paying dearly for this to this very nanosecond.
    If it did not work in ancient times. And we are talking some 2000 years before this was discussed seriously some 500 years ago. Because the practice simply violates natural law. What makes us think it will work today, for the last 500 years, and the next 500 years to come? What good is it to bring in just a little luxury from abroad, if in the final analysis, it ends up raping the people and the land. [1] If we cannot get by via “luxury” via our own hands, then we don’t deserve any — luxury .. (See 1 Thes. 4:11-12)

    My opinion. An opinion shared from history ..
    —————
    [1] In 1964, it was purported that between Fort Knox, the basements/vaults of the NY FED (Manhattan) and vaults at West Point, there was ~10,500 metric tonnes of gold bullion backing the U.S. Treasury. The value of that gold at that time was ~15 billion.
    Today it is purported that same vaults have ~8000 tonnes. (Some, such as Bill Holter and Jim Sinclair say there may well be none.) At the same, the PRC is purported to have accumulated some 10,000 tonnes. At the same that the U.S. Treasury has [purported by some] – 0 -. Where did China get that gold. Who sold (or literally gave) it to them? London (City of) is reporting that at this very nanosecond, there simply is no more physical gold to be had.
    So, do we have here an object lesson here in wealth transfer, via buying cheap goods (luxuries) such as iPhones, iPads, et al. And the end result looks to be raping a people and the land?
    You tell me ..
    Now, the other side of the “coin” (story), is that someone foresaw this, and prepared for a “rainy day.” (beginning 35 years ago.)

    Yes, it does involve Zinskauf and Zinsen on steroids. But that’s another debate. And a debate with a financial genius that took advantage of a ethically questionable presidential directive, whose aim was to prevent WW3. We do not live in a perfect society. The problem with usury, is where does one draw the line? Is there a “line” to be drawn? How is the Muslim and the Persian successful without the use of usury?

  5. The problem is that the powers that be would rather let everything crash and burn than help any ordinary folk and do something so…Libertarianish. Add in the fact that they’d be dealing with the lying, criminal neocons on both sides of the isle and you really are presenting something here that would be impossible at least until the criminal neocon element is…neutralized. Where’s your plan for that?

  6. How fucked up is having a fun time dreaming of libertarian utopia with the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent refugees (they’re not immigrants you cretin) from the wars (you fund and support with your votes) your country instigated for oil, gas, pipelines, gold… oh, and to impose the shackles of western Central Banks as each invaded country sinks into chaos and pain while the corporations move in for the kill and “the terrorists” you hired and supplied reek havoc, forcing innocents to flee with nothing.
    And “The Exceptional” nation mocks them behind the safety of the Atlantic Ocean… while refusing to lift a finger for the victims of their war crimes?
    You really do deserve Trump, the perfect symbol of the decay of a once great nation, that never recovered from the coup in Dallas.
    Have fun kiddies…

  7. Solve problems caused by too much government, … with a new government program??? Filled with complicated rules, too, with the obligatory arbitrary cutoffs. I have a better, simpler plan, which, like the author’s, has zero chance of being implemented any time soon, but would really fix the problem.
    . Federal government sells off all assets to the highest bidders.
    . Federal government fires all its employees.
    . Federal government dissolves.

  8. Mr. Rosenberg, In brief, you advocate a “Government-Free Zones” somewhere as experiments something like Deng Xiao Peng’s Special Economic Zones in China.
    Let’s do it!

  9. SOOOO, WE GET EM HERE, GIVE EM A FRESH EASY START, AND THE MUSLIM EXTREMISTS WHOSE SOLE PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO BEHEAD US WILL SUDDENLY LOVE US AND BECOME PRODUCTIVE AMERICAN CHRISTIANS ? YEA, RIGHT….THEIR ONLY USE FOR THEIR KORAN WILL THEN BE FOR FIRE STARTERS ….YEA SURE…

  10. I detect a slight flaw in your plan. That being private, international central Banksters, the impetus of the problem.
    THE ROOT OF OUR SOCIAL, ECONOMIC AND, MILITARISTIC WOW’S IS AN EVIL
    MONETARY SYSTEM. EVERYTHING ELSE IS A SYMPTOM OR AN ACTION THAT SUPPORTS
    IT. AT THE HEART OF THIS SYSTEM ARE THE CENTRAL BANKS; THE PRIVATELY
    HELD FED AND THOSE WHO CONTROL IT WITH THEIR DISHONEST, DEBT BASED
    MONETARY POLICIES. AS SUCH, POLICIES, LAWS AND THE CAPTURE OF
    REGULATORS ARE FOR THEIR BENEFIT. AN ACCOUNT OF THE PEOPLE HAS NO PLACE
    IN IT.
    INDEED, IF THE PEOPLE WERE ITS PRIMARY CONCERN, THE WORLD WOULD BE MORE FREE, LESS VIOLENT AND MORE PROSPEROUS.

  11. This fails from the point of “the State and Federal Government will forebear taxes”. This would in effect create large enclaves of a free and prosperous people within a totalitarian society which would cause huge fractures in the latter as the sheeple become aware of the benefits of living as our great grandfathers did before us.
