Many here argue that Democrats don’t believe in having open borders, but the fact is that when you listen to today’s Democrat politicians they advocate things like: decriminalizing illegal immigration, abolishing ICE, not building any more border wall, tearing down existing border wall, free health insurance for illegal immigrants, drivers licenses for illegal immigrants, etc. Also how many Democrats believe that any of the people currently here illegally should be deported? How many Democrats are in favor of changing our ludicrous Asylum laws? Pretty much anyone who says two magic words – asylum seeker – can essentially walk into the country. So if that isn’t open borders exactly what is?
In so many of the discussions here on immigration people often make this following comment, “ they are just seeking a better life ” (ironically many current Americans are doing that as well). So if that is indeed how you see it, would you want an immigration system that makes that paramount? Should anyone who is just seeking a better life be granted citizenship? Let’s do some math. There are approximately 8 billion people in the world, approximately how many of them do you figure have a worse life than yourself? Go look at lists of the best countries to live in and you will notice that they all have generally small populations (most very small). In other words of those 8 billion people it’s quite likely 6-7 billion have lives worse off than your own. So for those who profess to be compassionate, I would love to know just how much compassion do you have? In other words how many of those 6-7 billion do you advocate taking in?
Economically and socially speaking how many of the world’s impoverished citizens can America absorb without experiencing catastrophic economic as well as social consequences? Would really love to see answers to these types of questions.
