Lew Rockwell blogger likes moderated LP Platform

Laurence Vance disapprovingly quotes the 2004 immigration plank and writes: "Fortunately, the Libertarian Party has significantly changed its statements on immigration in its latest platform."  He also quotes approvingly of an 1882 law that denied immigration to "any person unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge". 

Migration across borders should be without constraints, provided that migrants do not trespass and are sponsored by someone (perhaps themselves) who can afford to assume the same responsibility for their resource impact and congestion impact and subsistence needs as parents do for native children.
