Brianna Rennix on Open Borders: Yes or No?

Writer and editor of Current Affairs, Brianna Rennix, speaks with RJ Eskow of The Zero Hour with RJ Eskow. The two speak on the possibility of if open borders are a good or bad thing for the United States. Rennix's article for InTheseTimes further explores why the United States should be pro-open borders.

In her article, Rennix says that if American people believe in the American dream, open borders should be a must.

We can immediately take issue with this premise on moral grounds: If you truly believe in human equality, privileging the economic well-being of U.S.-born workers simply because of their birthplace is arbitrary and unjustifiable. But even for those who privilege native workers, the argument that immigration is inherently “bad for the economy” is fairly easily dispensed with.
