If Mexicans and Americans Could Cross the Border Freely
By Jacques Delacroix
Sergey Nikiforov

This article appeared in the Summer 2009 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Opening the U.S.-Mexico border without restriction would bring about changes that most pundits have overlooked. For example, the structural problems that plague Social Security and Medicare might be alleviated rapidly by an influx of highly skilled Mexican workers into the U.S. labor market and by an acceleration of the trend of American seniors retiring south of the border.
