“DEFENDING OUR BORDERS”
Restrictions in entering the United States do nothing to ensure its safety. Think border fence among other things. The greater the restrictions the more likely it is that we will keep out productive, honest people and the only people who will get here will be real criminals. Maybe that’s the goal. If you’re opposed to those dirty brown people, maybe if you increase the proportion of criminals you can more easily believe that they are all despicable.
Once again I remind people that the Soviet Union couldn’t “secure” its borders. It’s not feasible even if it weren’t crazily hurtful, hateful, and misguided.
