In his book ”Arguing With Idiots” Beck reprints and then praises Article I, Section 9, Clause 1 of the Constitution:
The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.
The clause Beck thinks has something to do with “A price tag on coming to this country” was in fact a clause that made it illegal to ban the importation of slaves, until at least 1808, but it gave Congress the right to tax a slave owner ten bucks for each new slave he brought in."
