Well, I guess you could try to make those arguments, but the facts wouldn’t be on your side. Welfare generally reduces misery, including hunger and ill health.

Facts About Immigration and the U.S. Economy
As for abortion, this is not about economics it’s about your moral objections being used to inflict your desires on others – an odd position for someone who is so strident about personal liberty.
And finally – our education system. Really, you’re going to argue that we shouldn’t educate ourselves and our children? Wow!
You should provide a source for these kinds of claims. Based on the brief research I just did, I doubt you can substantiate this. As for the cost, you’re selectively measuring just one cost (the cost of crime supposedly committed by illegal aliens), as opposed to all of the benefits and costs of having undocumented immigrants. The data show that there is a net economic benefit from immigration. While similarly educated Americans may see a slight decrease in wages due to the presence of illegal immigrants in the workforce, this is an artifact of those workers’ status. If they had work permits and could freely enter the workforce, the would have more bargaining power and their wages would probably not be less than their American counterparts. But, on the whole the economy is better off than if they weren’t here. See: Illegal immigrants benefit the U.S. economy
Gee, the press must be suppressing this information. That’s a daily rate of between 2,192 and 6,849. Seems like that would be some real news! I’m guessing this is total fiction.
Hmmm, don’t remember arguing for that. Although I am for preventing violence caused by guns, I’m not much up for arresting everyone that owns one on account of the crimes they are going to commit in the future. Guess I’ll leave that to Chief Anderton.
Oh, just a reminder, Adam Lanza, Nicholas Cruz, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were all 100% law abiding citizens right up to the point where they pulled the trigger at school. That law-abiding citizen mantra doesn’t really buy you much.
