The government shutdown and all the theatrics surrounding it our all about one thing: sovereignty. Those who support the fact that America is a sovereign nation that must protects its borders will be in favor of the border wall. Those who want open borders and do not believe America should exercise its right to remain a sovereign nation are against the wall.
Those who oppose building the wall can try to make the argument that they’re all for border security and American sovereignty, but… [insert bogus excuse of the day]. It would be better if they were honest about it. Just say what you really feel, folks. The border wall is currently the best solution to preventing the mad rush of illegal immigrants from crossing the border. There is no benefit to them crossing at a point of entry if there’s no barrier preventing them from crossing somewhere else. In fact, it’s faster for them to cross illegally rather than wait to get access to the port of entry.
But if there was a border wall, this wouldn’t be an issue. They’d be forced to choose between doing things the lawful way or breaching a physical barrier. Most who cross the border illegally today aren’t climbing fences. They’re going around. They know where there are holes in our border security and the head in that direction. That’s how hundreds of migrants every day are able to cross over before surrendering to border patrol. It’s a quicker way to get their asylum claims in the system.
So, let’s dispense with the myths that border wall would be ineffective. Let’s stop pretending that the Democrats, who seem to think nothing is too expensive, suddenly think the border wall will cost too much. Let’s definitely put an end to the notion they support border security in other ways. These are all bald-faced lies. They want open borders, period. They don’t want America to be a sovereign nation, period.
Either we’re a sovereign nation or we’re not. As a sovereign nation, we must exercise our right to defend our borders. Those who fight against this are fighting against our sovereignty. Every other excuse they make is feeble and dishonest.
