    Yes, I could go through all the other links just so I could point out the flaws like I did with the last one. Again, Brandolini's Law. All you would do is waste my time as you threw one stop stick after another. The truth is, this isn't about this or that economic study to you, this is ideology, as you made clear:

    Irony noted. The facts are there if you care to give them a gander some time. You quoted one study, I referred to two as well as other assessments of the study you referred to. Yes, it is about economics to me as well as ethics. Hence why I referred to "burden of proof." There are rational restrictions on immigration that meet this burden of proof, such as background checks. But you are having more fun with your straw man, so by all means, have at it.

    Capitalism is neither globalist or protectionist

    Government sets the rules for the market and capitalism abides by those rules

    It is globalist and anti-protectionist. Has been since Adam Smith. Again, try reading Wealth of Nations, and this time don't skip book 4.

    And some of those rules are anti-capitalist. Didn't think something that obvious would require explaining, but there you are.

    No, I just pointed out, with a quote from you, that this is all about ideology for you. You've made that clear. So I'm not clear why I should waste my time going through every single study to debunk it when ultimately, the studies don't matter to you. You already have your beliefs.

    Or affirmative action

    Again, irony and lack of understanding of what you quoted noted. "Read my studies but I will refuse to read yours." At least it has comedic appeal.
