From yesterday, NYT is saying there's nothing wrong with open borders.
Quote:I told ya. It's all lies from democrats. It's not about racism or wall ineffectiveness, it's about them wanting open borders and disguising their reason for protest.
Quote:Wow this guy is an idiot and has no clue.
I'll admit...this is just as bad if not worse that Trumps they are all criminals mentality.
Agreed the criminal thing is way overblown, especially if a precursory check is performed with the legal system of the country of emigration.
However my first thought when he said "open border" was, "Do you have any idea of how many TENS of millions of people would come here?" Just the deluge from Venezuela alone would be staggering.
I wouldn't blame them, if I lived in Bangaldesh I'd want to come to America too, but we can only handle so many folks at one time, otherwise the whole system will fracture as there is a limited pot of money and infrastructure to handle impoverished folks.
The outcry for the past few years in California, is we have to build "affordable housing" and we can't do it now; just wait until we add another 3 million folks in 2 years or less and see how bad it gets.
Also I guess it's ok with this guy if folks have TB, hemorrhagic fever, or other such wonderful diseases. My own grandparents had to take a TB test at Ellis Island prior to entry. I'm finding it staggering that folks had more common sense in 1917 than they do in 2019.
It's like common sense has gone out the window. Honestly I think both sides are gaining power from the abuse of immigrants this leads too.
The Dems get all these potential votes and turn things more to a welfare socialist state.
The Repubs get all these free cheap workers and can turn things more to a oligarchy for the rich.
