Two potential 2020 presidential contenders placed their bets on open borders as a winning issue in their expected bids for the office. California Sen. Kamala Harris (D) and Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) both made strong statements in support of the caravan from Guatemala that aims to crash its way into the US by election day 2018.
"America is a welcoming place," Harris said. "We are, after all, a nation built on immigration. The people in this caravan are just like the people in America. We all want a government that puts food on the table and pays our bills. This is the immigrants' right as human beings. We have no legitimate or moral authority to exclude them from the bounty the Earth has bestowed on the land we live in. We need to let them in and get them registered to vote so they can democratically protect their human rights."
Kasich alleges that "God wants us to welcome the caravan. Many of these people have been coerced by criminals to come to America. Thugs threaten them saying 'if you don't do what we want, we will rape your daughter or kill your son if he's not a drug mule.' Now, they're all marching northvictims and criminals alikeand it could easily have been all of us. That's why we have to let them all in."
Of course, President Trump has been repeatedly excoriated by Democrats and the media for complaining that our open borders allow criminals into the country. While most of the immigrants in the caravan are not criminals, criminals are among them. One migrant in the caravan told Fox News that "criminals are everywhere." Guatemalan police have rescued some children from human traffickers traveling with the caravan. And some of the migrants stormed in and looted a public market in Chiapas, Mexico.

Can’t recall One country in history that has survived porous borders.
Don’t recall reading about many countries that didn’t seem to CARE that their borders were porous.
Usually the porous borders were the result of conquered land exceeding an empire’s ability to defend all of it.
“We are, after all, a nation built on immigration.”
Dang. She forgot to put legal in front of immigration.
“the bounty the Earth has bestowed on the land we live in”
The woman obviously hasn’t heard of or seen Honduran mahogany.
“William Mulholland (September 11, 1855 July 22, 1935) was an Irish American civil engineer who was responsible for building the infrastructure to provide a water supply that allowed Los Angeles to grow into the largest city in California.”
“Mulholland’s career effectively ended on March 12, 1928, when the St. Francis Dam failed....and took the lives of 64 of the 67 workmen and their families.”
“We all want a government that puts food on the table and pays our bills.”
Why are they headed north?
I think Venezuela is where these dreamers ought to go.
