The article explores the libertarian legitimacy of state borders to exclude immigrants. It is argued that in these theories the legitimacy of borders is constructed through the legitimacy of property. The article analyzes the libertarian theories of Nozick and Steiner and contends against the idea that the absolute right of libertarian property allows exclusion at borders, and that the conditions of property legitimacy imply a reduced state power to control borders. Whereas in an ideal world communities would have full power to control them, in our imperfect world states lack such authority.
