Francis’s statement disregards not only the sovereignty of the American nation-state, but also ignorance of how generous America has been to the poor and vulnerable of the world.
Whatever their reasons for leaving, a wall or a physical barrier will do nothing to stop immigrants from crossing the border.
It’s not as simple as ‘open borders’ versus ‘build the wall.’ We need to preserve rule of law while letting hard-working immigrants contribute to our economy.
After promising again and again to stop illegal immigration, cartel violence, and the drug epidemic, members of Congress are complaining that Donald Trump is now taking action.
In spite of a seemingly unstoppable alliance among media, bureaucrats, the House, and Never-Trumper Republicans, the left appears destined to extract defeat from jaws of victory.
