As the current situation at the US-Mexico border is such a central issue to many citizens in the US and immigrants from around the world, especially with the upcoming election. I am interested in gauging the response from other Libertarians, since this issue is deeply rooted in personal liberty. Does someone have a right to choose where they live and reside regardless of where they were born? Does illegal immigration infringe upon the liberty of the citizens of the United States? Does Libertarianism support the existence of borders at all? Does a governing body have a right to tell me where I can and cannot live; if I have the means to live there? (Hoping to hear from all Libertarians, not just people living in the US)
Note: I am not looking for discussions around the actions of the individuals once they are in the country. Their propensity to commit crimes. Their treatment of others. Their contribution to society. I am solely asking about the rights surrounding borders and citizenship.
