The USC Objectivist Club is pleased to announce: The Right to Immigrate: The Case for Absolute Open Entry into the U.S. By Harry Binswanger, Ph.D.

Since at least the 1920s, the U.S. has imposed restrictions on immigration. Today, many people on both sides of the political spectrum are calling for expanded controls over our borders. In this informal talk, Dr. Binswanger will make the case for open immigration: the removal of all limitations on entry into, and legal residence within, the United States. He will explain why immigration is a right, why it is a practical benefit to Americans, and how properly to deal with the threat of terrorists entering the country.

Dr. Binswanger, a longtime associate of Ayn Rand, taught philosophy at Hunter College (City University of New York) from 1972 to 1979, and at the University of Texas, Austin, Spring 2002. During the 1980s, he was editor of The Objectivist Forum, a bimonthly journal devoted to Ayn Rand’s philosophy. Since 1994, he has been professor of philosophy at the Objectivist Academic Center of the Ayn Rand Institute. He is the author of The Biological Basis of Teleological Concepts (ARI Press, 1990) and editor of The Ayn Rand Lexicon (New American Library) and of the second edition of Ayn Rand’s Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology (New American Library). A regular speaker at universities, he has given more than 70 talks at some 40 universities on a wide variety of topics in philosophy and politics, from “The Primacy of Existence” to “‘Buy American’ Is Un-American.” Dr. Binswanger is currently writing a book on the causal nature of consciousness. Dr. Binswanger received his B.A from MIT and his Ph.D. from Columbia University.
