Is there any “good” reason for a country such as the U.S. to deny entrance to persons who wish to immigrate, but who are not desired as immigrants by some or most of the current citizens? My argument will assume without further justification that an individual has a right to life, liberty, and property in the traditional Anglo-Saxon sense of freedom from coercion by the state or other persons (unless a criminal act has been committed).
