Why not have “Free Immigration”

[prior to 1914, almost anyone was allowed to immigrate to the USA at any time]  …Because it is one thing to have free immigration to jobs. It is another thing to have free immigration to welfare. And you cannot have both. If you have a welfare state, if you have a state in which every resident is promised a certain minimal level of income, or a minimum level of subsistence, regardless of whether he works or not, produces it or not. Then it really is an impossible thing. ~ Milton Friedman
