During Ron DeSantis’ keynote address at the Miami National Conservatism Conference on September 11, 2022, the Florida Governor made a point on America’s relationship with immigration.
“So the issue is, how does immigration serve the people of the United States and the national interest?” he said, adding, “We’re not globalists who believe that foreigners have a right to come into our country whenever they want to.”
I’m not a central planner. I don’t want to be doing that. But corporatism is not the same as free enterprise. Too many Republicans have viewed limited government to basically mean whatever is best for corporate America is how we want to do the economy. And my view is, obviously free enterprise is the best economic system.
But that is a means to an end. It’s a means to having a good fulfilling life and a prosperous society. It’s not an end in and of itself, and we need to make sure that we have that firmly in mind.
The United States is a nation that has an economy, not the other way around. Our economy should be geared towards helping our own people.
“This idea of mass immigration, whether it’s illegal immigration, or whether it’s just mass immigration through the legal process — like the diversity lottery or chain migration — is not conducive to assimilating people into American society,” DeSantis said.
