The Moon: The 51st State?

Suggestions that the Moon be made the 51st state are about as scary as a Clinton being the next UN Secretary General.

I'd imagine that if that ever happened, no one would settle there - legally at least. Getting a Green Card aint as easy as some people down south seem to believe. My guess is no one would emigrate, or the same thing would happen on the moon that's happening in the good ol' USofA now: massive illegal immigration.

  1. Scary? Other nations can make their own claims. Canada can have Cruithne, for example.

    As for immigration, if the Moon were a state, that would eliminate one of the arguments against reviving 19th-century immigrations laws: the supposed nonexistence of a frontier that has to be filled.
