Whereas corporations are relatively free to cross borders, workers are not. For big business, the question is how to ensure an abundant & cheap labor supply, and how to restrict it in periods when they don't need it. Anti-immigration laws don't prevent immigration any more than anti-drug laws prevent drug trafficking, but they make immigrants easier to exploit.

Employers can hire undocumented workers at substandard wages and thus exploit them. Immigrant-bashing is also an effective tool to divide and weaken the working class. The most effective way to combat that is to build solidarity amongst workers - in the U.S. & abroad. Join the Pan American Solidarity Organization and the International Socialist Organization for a discussion on how to build a world where no one is "illegal," a world without borders.
