Susana Carrera was picking up her kids from a friend’s house when kidnappers pulled up, threw her in a car, and drove off. They demanded ransom of just over $200,000 for her return. When her husband couldn’t come up with the money in time, they decapitated her and left her body in a parking lot with a note that said, “This happened to me because my husband played the tough guy and didn’t want to pay my ransom.”

As difficult as it is to hear stories like this, let alone write about them, it’s important for Americans to understand what’s truly entailed in the idea of opening our borders. Contrary to their objections, that’s exactly what the hyper-leftist wing of the Democratic Party wants to happen. They pretend to be tough on border security, yet more and more of them are not only opposed to building the border wall, but they’re also wanting to remove the walls that are already in place.
It’s one thing to work through a fair and legal immigration system that maintains a steady flow of productive people wanting to contribute to America and reap the rewards in return. It’s another thing altogether to want to send invitations to the worst criminals south of the border, which is exactly what current Democratic policies are doing. America has plenty of crime of its own. There’s no need to exacerbate the situation by calling for more criminals like these to become part of our country.
As a sovereign nation, it is the duty of our elected officials to defend our borders and prevent criminals from crossing illegally. This should be common sense, but instead we’re seeing increasing calls to be a nation without borders. It’s suicide.
