Skip to comments.Salon: Open Borders ‘Only Way to Defeat Trump’

Open borders are the only path to defeating President Donald Trump, a Salon writer claims.
In a piece titled Everyones wrong on immigration: Open borders are the only way to defeat Trump and build a better world, Salon writer Anis Shivani claims that there is no distinction between a legal and illegal immigrant; immigration law is racist; and open borders are the only way to go. Shivani adds:
We are in a situation of chaos, breeding technical illegality, because federal regulations have become too complex. Comprehensive immigration reform of any type would make these laws even more cumbersome by drastically curtailing family unification (our quotas, even after the 1965 liberalization, have always been vastly insufficient to the needs) and thus inviting more illegality. I dont want to rest my case for open borders on the economic justification, but studies in the 1980s noted that world economic output would double if open borders prevailed everywhere, and studies in the 2000s showed even greater gains for the world economy.
Americans often compare the nation to a house, arguing that immigrants who enter without inspection or overstay their visas are like robbers whom we have every right to detain and expel. But a country or even a state or a city or a neighborhood is not a house (just as it is simplistic to compare a countrys budget to a households). The nation is dynamic and includes all of us. The nation is an abstraction is only as good as the operation of freedom within it. The same is even truer of the world. If the world cannot be put inside a border, then a country trying to do the same is foolish.

And they will cheer on the antichrist and the new world order.
IF President Trump was going to be defeated, it would have happened in November...You just can’t fix stupid can you???
The Communists are further reproached with desiring to abolish countries and nationality.The fellow travelers at Salon merely staying true to form. Their evil certainly knows no borders.
What a steaming pile...
Sounds like an Anis...
When EVERY OTHER COUNTRY erases its borders and allows people to come and go freely with no border checks, own property, open a business, vote, run for office .... then I think about doing so in the USA.
Until then, no.
What they really want us the USA to open its borders ... but not other countries.
She gave away the game.
Open borders is a good way to get foreigners killed. Because at some point, the American people will defend their country.
Figures that idiot’s name is ANIS..sounds a lot like ANUS
It’s also the only way to defeat the American taxpayers. (Americans who pay taxes. No to be confused with fascist liberals who don’t).
We’re being replaced. That’s the idea. They are doing it while we fiddle and fumble.
A couple million people a year, over the course of a couple of decades, combined with another million or so abortions per year over the course of a couple of decades, and you have major demographic changes.
If they did it all at once, there would be a response and they would lose. But over a 20 year period, who even notices?
Right - flood the country with illegal Democrat voters. What? There’s not enough cemetery’s for their voters?
IF President Trump was going to be defeated, it would have happened in November...You just cant fix stupid can you???
I think you are correct. I think we have come to a tipping point, and tipped back toward the Constition, instead of over the precipice.
I prayed a lot for this... and worked hard.
That being said, It the “Progressives” would run a Bill Clintonesque candidate (Hillary was a horrible candidate), they would be a challenge.
Immigration from Mexico is 2.5 times that of all Europe.
Immigration from one country, Mexico, is 2.5 times that of many countries combined.
I've taken the figures from the above table at cis.org and graphed them.
Note the sharp increase in immigration from Mexico and how that differs from all other regions' increase. Note also the sharp decline in immigration from Europe while all other regions have increased.
Our immigration system disproportionately favors Mexican ethnicity. But that's not enough for Mexicans. In 2010 roughly 58% of illegal aliens were Mexican. (As of March 2010, 11.2 million unauthorized immigrants were living in the United States Then see Figure 2 at http://www.pewhispanic.org/2011/02/01/ii-current-estimates-and-trends/)
Shivani is an America hating idiot.
It’s the opposite. The Democrats should be joining Trump on immigration if they want to win.
Imagine there’s no moonbats
It’s easy if you try......
“Shivani is an America hating idiot.”
You are far too kind. I had to quit reading when I reached this part of the propaganda:
“Most Americans who have no direct experience with the immigration system are easily misled by xenophobic claims that often sound commonsensical, such as the (false) notion that immigrants drive down wages and make those who are native-born lose their jobs.”
The USA IS the better world.
They don't seem to have any idea how fortunate they are to live here.
So they do their best to change the nation into a replica of a third world benjo ditch.
