Donald Rumsfeld on Immigration

Secretary of Defense (Pres. Bush Cabinet)

 


Privatize & outsource as solution to immigration problem

Milton Friedman suggested that immigration was off-limits to free market profiteers and should be reserved for government. But Donald Rumsfeld, a Friedman acolyte, had other ideas. Even though he said he felt smarter when Friedman was in the room, Rumsfeld eagerly and quickly leapt out of his mentor's shadow. On Sept. 10, 2011, Rumsfeld declared privatization and outsourcing were the solution to this problem. After 9/11, DHS would be ripe for outsourcing. Within DHS, the administration privatized everything in sight, especially immigration. One of the unintended consequences of outsourcing immigration control is that biometric technology snafus have [become] the government's most pressing concern.
