USA Today opinion contributor — and Harvard econ department undergraduate studies director — Jeffrey Miron writes:
Trump, however, has it exactly backwards: The solution to America’s immigration problems is open borders, under which the United States imposes no immigration restrictions at all. If the U.S. adopts this policy, the benefits will far outweigh the costs.

See? Everybody wins!

Are you kidding? No words can describe how ridiculous this is.

I had to read the whole article to see if ended with a “Just kidding!” But no, he’s serious 🙄
