Upon elimination of government, there should be no governmental boundaries. But that doesn't mean the elimination of PRIVATE boundaries, property lines. Sadly, some (recent) libertarians don't realize this.

Are you arguing that laws shouldn't exist?
Are you arguing that people who are said to be illegally in America don't commit crimes?
