    Frank Keating, head of the American Bankers Association, has finally come clean about big business' ultimate immigration reform goal — totally open borders with the unrestricted movement of millions of foreign workers into the United States.

    In a remarkably candid Op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times, Keating writes:

    We cannot support open borders for trade but not for people. ... As Ronald Reagan might have put it, it's time to open the doors.

    Keating justifies business's open borders position by arguing that it would "boost economic growth" and that it "would also help address a critical long-term gap in funding for America's two signature entitlement programs: Social Security and Medicare."
    God, that is comical! Do you believe this guy?

    Frank Keating head of the American bankers association, or a non American who knows dick about it. Sure.

    You can characterize it however it fancies you. Nevertheless, our borders won't be strengthened.

    Because Big Business is more powerful than the Obama Administration I suppose.

    The Democrats want open borders so Big Business seems to have little to do with it.

    No, because big business is pandered to by both parties. That's why you'll not be seeing strengthened borders.

    Want a global economic boom? Open the borders.

    True economic liberty means more open borders - The Drum (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
    If Americans want to experiment with this idea then they should go for it, though once it is initiated there will be no turning back of course.

    This policy has been halfheartedly attempted in Europe but with uneven success. Many Europeans would like a do-over but it's too late for that.

    Right. Politicians are concerned about the vote more than anything else. That's far more important than big business.

    I'm not espousing it. I'm just trying to demonstrate for you that with big business behind it, it's coming.

    Well sure, that's where candidates promises are eclipsed by their actions in office.
