The ‘open borders’ lie(s)

Seriously it’s time to dispense with the lies!

““In 2013, every single Democrat in the Senate voted for the so-called Gang of Eight immigration overhaul bill that would have provided about $40 billion for border enforcement, including deploying thousands more agents and building 700 miles of fencing … And in 2006, 26 Senate Democrats voted to build 700 miles of walls and fences on the southwestern border.”

ere and there, now and then, there are certainly Democrats who support “open borders” — international boundaries marked merely with the sort of “Welcome to …” signs that separate, say, Illinois from Wisconsin, or, at most, the cursory, nod-and-wave checkpoints that used to separate the U.S. from Canada.

The left is home to more than a few one-world utopians, and it’s healthy to have thought experiments every now and then. Why do freedoms of movement and association ostensibly granted by nature or, if you will, God, stop at man-made borders? That kind of thing.

But really, no. President Donald Trump’s increasingly frequent accusation along these lines is a lie.

“Democrats love open borders,” he said in a June 19 speech to the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

“The Democrats want open borders,” Trump said the following day in a speech in Duluth, Minn. “Let everybody come in. Let everybody pour in — we don’t care, let them come in from the Middle East, let them come in from all over the place. We don’t care.”

On Monday, speaking to reporters: “The Democrats want open borders, and they don’t care about crime,”

Then there are the tweets: Democrats “want Open Borders and don’t care about Crime!” (June 24) “The Democrats are in Turmoil! Open Borders and unchecked Crime” and “the Democrats… want Open Borders and Unlimited Crime” (Tuesday) , “THE DEMS WANT OPEN BORDERS” (Wednesday) and so on.
