Description

Ever since the United States ceased to be a colony of the British Empire, immigration has been used as a tool of the ruling class to relegate labor. While xenophobic fears may ignite passionate debate, capitalism is the driving factor in the bipartisan draconian immigration legislation we see to this day.


 
We’ll discuss capitalism’s role in the United States southern border policy and more.
