During the last Executive Committee teleconference, a resolution concerning the border wall being pushed by the current POTUS was written and put forth by At Large member, Richard Fast. The resolution was adopted and reads as follows:
WHEREAS, the Libertarian Party of Alabama believes that the only proper role of law is in the protection of the natural rights of individuals from the initiation of force or fraud;
WHEREAS, no individual has a natural right to prohibit consensual visitation to or consensual habitation on the private property of another individual;
WHEREAS, the Libertarian Party believes that eminent domain is a violation of private property rights;
WHEREAS, we affirm the right of individuals to set whatever standards they wish for entry onto their own private property but not that owned by others;
WHEREAS, we believe that all individuals have the same natural rights regardless of their citizenship;
WHEREAS, the Libertarian Party acknowledges that economic freedom demands the unrestricted movement of human as well as financial capital across national borders:
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Libertarian Party of Alabama condemns and opposes efforts to build a governmental border wall.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Libertarian Party of Alabama supports open borders.
The resolution reflects the national Libertarian Party's platform stance on free trade and migration. You can read the Party's entire platform by clicking here.
