Self-interest accusations

  • Corporatist agenda: Open borders advocates are shills for employers and multinational corporations who want cheap labor, and are unconcerned about the damage to society.
  • Herd-building: Labor unions, ethic special interest organizations, and political parties support immigration to boost the numbers of the groups of people they allegedly represent, thus increasing their prestige and political power.
  • Potential immigrant: Some of the proponents of open borders are themselves potential immigrants (or have close personal ties with potential immigrants) and their advocacy of open borders is predicated on self-interest.
