What If We Treated ICE Agents Like They Treat Us?
What if we treated ICE agents and cops the way they treated those accused of the non-crime of illegal boarder crossing? What their crimes against personal freedom were met with the type of treatment they impose on others? Perhaps in such a world those arresting them would document their arrest using templates such as this…
Two (Libertarian) Reasons Conservatives Should Oppose Trump’s Wall
As the debate around immigration has escalated in the United States, one of the focal points — and a cornerstone of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign — has been the proposed wall along the nation’s southern border. As a libertarian I believe in the free-market, and a truly free-market entails movement of people, not simply products…
Paese di Immigrati, Paese di Fuorilegge
[Di Ryan Calhoun. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 19 febbraio 2017 con il titolo A Nation of Immigrants, A Nation of Criminals. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] “Hanno violato la legge.” Con questa frase chiudiamo un occhio su un’enorme ingiustizia di questo paese. Ultimamente è ripetuta come un mantra da chi sostiene…
A Nation of Immigrants, A Nation of Criminals

Fort Bliss: Agorists in Action or Cartel Cronies?
Recently two US soldiers were arrested attempting to smuggling undocumented Mexicans over the border.

It seems that either only a few facts are known or the details of…

Under his executive order, most will get permission to work. Obama will also increase the number of “dreamers” — children brought here illegally by their parents and…
Le Frontiere Incoraggiano la Criminalità di Stato
A Tacoma, nello stato di Washington, gli immigrati detenuti nel Northwest Detention Center fanno lo sciopero della fame. Gli agenti dell’Immigration and Customs Enforcement stanno cercando di intimidirli, minacciando di alimentarli a forza. Parlando con americani, ho notato che molti di loro non hanno simpatia per i detenuti. Appongono agli immigrati il marchio di “illegali”…
How Borders Enable State Criminality
In Tacoma, Washington, immigrant detainees held in the Northwest Detention Center are on hunger strike. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are attempting to intimidate, and threatening to force feed, them. When I talk to many Americans about this hunger strike, many lack sympathy with the detainees. They brand immigrants as “illegals” and use this as…
Our Communities Depend Upon Individual Nullifiers with Courage
People who follow the law by virtue of it being a law are respecting power and not justice. This is a great danger to our communities and must be confronted here in Arizona and everywhere else.
