    Can anyone give me a good reason for the USA to have open borders?

    I've heard so many people cite pro and con reasons for a border wall, but most don't go into detail.  I'd like to hear WHY America should keep our borders open or closed?  It's not your political opinion I want to hear, but real reasons why you think we should or should not have open borders.  No one has any idea on the number of illegal aliens in the country and what it costs - many claim they know, but reality says its impossible to pinpoint.

    You're going to get crickets on this one for awhile.

    Chirp, chirp, chirp, I hear them crickets. Let's break the silence.

    Ask yourself, What is behind  "good reasons for open borders?" The answer is that picture.

    There is absolutely NO good reason to have open borders for the USA. Oh there are reasons, there are reasons why pedophiles commit pedophilia but there are no good reasons for that or having open borders.

    Liberals, instead of thinking of the government as your father, think of America as your child. Would you open your child to all matter of trespass? Would you declare to your child there are no borders dear, let everyone and everything into your life, there are good reasons not to protect you from pedophiles?

    America, the world, is not a utopia but the open borders crowd apparently thinks it is or that open borders will somehow bring it about? Fat chance of that! LOL. In a world full of enemies vowed to destroy the USA no Patriot would ever say there is a good reason for open borders.
    Civilizations from the beginning of time have needed borders to protect them from evil, to preserve values and the principles upon which they were based. That is just a plain and simple fact which cannot be changed by any "good reasons."

    There is no good reason to open our country to all sorts of trespass, drugs, terror, criminals, perverts for the sake of some good reasons. Is there a good reason to open your child to access by pedophiles? There is no difference if you care about and love this country as you would your child.

    Legal Immigration with enforced borders will answer concerns of any conceivably "good reason for open borders" and that is the plain and simple truth. Anyone who advocates otherwise either has ulterior motives for presenting a so called "good reason for open borders" or is a sucker falling for their propaganda.

    I can think of several. If things get bad enough it could, not likely, but there is the possibility, that we could start seeing closed borders between states if we leave open borders. That would be like traveling in Europe in previous days. I realize that is a little exaggerated, but possible. There has already been talk, no matter how ridiculous it sounds, of Texas separating. But, at least closing the borders of our country could keep us from that extreme. Just my opinion and vision, Greg.

    I have written about this many times.
    First the primary importance of the wall is to stop or reduce the illegal drug trafficking, human trafficking and weapons from coming into the US. The Drug Cartel has those three illegal products and they do about $25 billion of it Every Year. 
    This shows us how much of a drug problem that we have in the US. These illegal drug customers cause medical problems when they get sick, they cause crimes when they need money to keep up their drug habits, they fill up jails and prisons when they get caught. It is fair to say that many of them wind up committing suicide. About half of the gun deaths in the US are from suicides. The criminal element in the US from the illegal drugs are found in the various gangs that make their money from these drugs. Because of their billions in revenue the Drug Cartel owns most of the northern border of Mexico, and can develop sophisticated plans to cross the border. They use technology, weapons, and they have moles in the police, and even in the military, and most likely in our government.

    So that would be a major victory if closing the border stops or even severely slows their business.

    Second, and it may become first or co-first is stopping Terrorists from getting into the country, although with Obama and Clinton they don't have to cross the border illegally, they will be shuttled in and treated as Americans.
    Third, and while it is the major reason for people to reject the wall, it is the illegal immigration. If the US and Mexico can some how handle the drug cartels, there may be a common interest in handling immigration.
    The way it has been handled over the last several decades cost us free medical, free education, welfare, criminal activity (the Hispanic jail and prison population speaks for itself) and they send most of their money back to Mexico. They also discriminate against those immigrants that try to come into the country legally. It costs them time, expense and then most of them don't get into the country because of quotas. Everyone talks about equality, but this is not equality, it is discrimination by the US government. Yet, it falls on deaf and dumb ears, we call SCOTUS and the POTUS, and Congress (do we call them COTUS)?

    The War on Drugs is over, we lost.
    The War on Gangs is over we lost
    The War on Crime is over we lost.

      Couldn't have said it better myself Brad! So what reason do we have to re-elect any of the people who've been responsible for these total failures for many years? Who do we know who can look them in their faces and say "You're Fired!"  ?
