Just a quick note to once again observe the insanity of the human animal: in the last six months I’ve traveled outside the country quite a bit, and each time I enter a foreign country and have my papers checked thoroughly….and each time I return to the great United States, the greatest country to ever grace the face of the earth, and have my papers checked thoroughly — “What countries did you visit; why did you travel there; are you brining in any food, insects, etc etc etc…” — I marvel that there are political leaders in our country from both political parties, and tens of millions of Americans, who believe that our border with Mexico does not matter and should not be enforced.
George W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, Jeb Bush, and so many more, all believe that 10 – 20 million illegal immigrants should be allowed to cross the border at will, live in the United States, earn money, repatriate that money, move freely (especially in “sanctuary cities”), get drivers’ licenses, and even collect money from various state governments (various forms of financial assistance).
This Open Border stance is, of course, entirely inconsistent with the elaborate border controls we all face when entering the United States. As I have written before, do you think you or I, as citizens, could get off a plane at LAX or JFK and re-enter the country without showing our passports and being interrogated? No way, no how, and I am glad this is the case — it is correct and sane.
Open borders are also inconsistent with every other nation on earth, even tiny island nations: you want to head to the beach for your vacation? Tell us who you are — show us your paperwork. You want to stay longer than a specified amount of time? Procure a VISA for an extended stay, and for that VISA show us paperwork including an “invitation” from a business or citizen that is the basis for your extended stay…
These border controls are normal, and proper, and needed.
And yet, otherwise rational people will stand on their heads to try and convince you that illegals should be granted citizen-status and that the border itself is some kind of offense against Mexicans (in this case).
It is quintessential nonsense.
