Curious how you ignored the first part of my paragraph.... You know, the part where I state: “Since others have raised it here too, the libertarian position on immigration is open borders or, rather, no borders.” Don’t you feel that maybe that has some relevance here? 

But let me ignore that. Why do you believe the part you quoted is naive? To guess, perhaps you believe I think the libertarian position is popular or could somehow become policy in the US soon (in the next five years). No, I think the libertarian position is unpopular and would be very unlucky to become the policy in the US anytime soon. (I don’t believe it’s impossible for it ever become popular or _the_ policy. After all, people’s views can change and so can other factors. But I don’t believe that simply because I think something is the right thing to do that others will necessarily both agree with and agree with me enough to impact policy.)
