Lesson 10 of our Law 201 Course: Prof. Ilya Somin returns to explain how Immigration promotes and even secures liberty, not only for migrants themselves but also for natives. He talks about improving the lives of people fleeing dictatorships, authoritarian regimes, and poverty and how this movement reflects (positively) in the economy and society of more open countries.

This video is part of our ‘Law 201’ course, available at, where you can go more in-depth in the concepts and definitions of the libertarian perspective of Law.
