    Should our nation have open or closed borders?

    Open.
    The only individuals who should be denied entrance are criminals (drug dealers, murderers, etc.)
    I'd go further to say anyone who believes in closed borders should take their own ancestry into consideration.

      Closed borders has nothing to do with legal immigration.  Closing the border keeps out people that are not legally allowed here.  How do you keep out drug dealers and criminals if you do not know who is coming across the border?????????

    Open.  History shows that immigrants helped make the US great.

      LEGAL Immigrants helped make the country.  The difference here is between people coming through the front door and the back door.  We should have legal immigration.  But the border needs to be closed, othewise terrorists can come in easily.

      Has anyone honestly looked at the requirements for citizenship today and compared them to what they were when Ellis Island still operated?

    I think we should leave our borders open, but protected. Meaning working with other countries on issues, and not blaming the border or immigration issues on one or a certain nationality of people. I think that the real problems lie with corrupt politicians. We should stop calling powerful people with money and college degrees politicians, because they lack one of the highest leadership principles, which is integrity
