March 16: Open Borders Day 


On the Volokh Conspiracy, Professor Ilya Somin reminds us that yesterday was Open Borders Day. Open Borders Day was created to celebrate the ideal of freedom of movement across international boundaries. According to Somina, "[o]pen borders is a radical principle, but also one deeply rooted in American history and in widely held liberal values of liberty and happiness. Allowing free movement across borders would greatly increase individual freedom, and allow millions to escape poverty and oppression. The struggle for free migration is one of the most important human rights issues in the world today."
