Why the Left's Argument for a Borderless World is Nonsense

It contradicts human nature.

It argues that random strangers, simply due to THEIR need, deserve to have first claim on money, property, education, medical treatment, and other 'goodies' in American society.

If you believe that, try this thought test:

Imagine that you have some savings. Now, take HALF of it, and give it to a deserving stranger that I select. You will have no input on who gets to receive that money. Rather than calling you generous, I snipe that any reluctance to give the money, without strings, immediately, is stingy. And racist.

Imagine that I come back and make a grab for your kid's college savings, as well. Will you give it up, willingly? That is, in effect, what you've been forced to do by the states that drop the price of college tuition for illegal aliens have done. By funding those recipients, I've raised the priced that YOUR kid will pay.

Still in favor of reduced tuition for 'Dreamers'?

Think of what residents in border towns face. They have to wait for medical service, and pay full freight. The border-jumpers crowd the ER space, and never have to pay a dime. Whether the Illegal alien is taken in first, or the sheer number simply makes all ER visitors wait longer, still means a long time sitting in uncomfortable chairs, while sick or injured.

Not to mention that staff overseeing detainees complained about the diseases that were being brought in with their human carriers. "About 10-15% of apprehended illegal immigrants have scabies." For your information, this is scabies - an infestation with parasitic mites.

The CDC says, no. Here's where they are wrong, and the report is misleading. This is surveying refugees that were seen by US-connected medical people, ONLY. It does not address those aliens evading Border inspection (this report also looks at disease rates of aliens in the EU).
Each refugee or immigrant who enters the United States must undergo a medical examination in their country of origin. These legally required medical examinations identify persons with inadmissible conditions of public health significance before they enter the United States. The examinations are conducted by panel physicians, who are medically trained, licensed, and experienced physicians practicing overseas who are appointed by the local U.S. embassy or consulate and who follow the CDC medical screening guidelines provided to DOS and HHS.
Here is the reality:
TB is one of the most serious threats. Latent TB can remain dormant for years, even decades. It is alarming that 18 percent of refugees in Arizona arrive with latent TB, while in the general Arizona population the incidence was only 4 percent. Multidrug resistant TB (MDR-TB), common in migrants, may cost more than $400,000 per patient, compared with $20,000 for the drug-responsive TB that has been predominant in U.S.-born patients. Treatment of MDR-TB has serious side effects, with no guarantee of success.

FoxNews says that the government is lying about the extent of the TB problem.
This is the same HHS that previously denied there were any cases of scabies. They make it sound as if there are very few health problems among the illegals. They even downplay the lice epidemic -- just 119 “officially confirmed” cases.
“They are lying,” one nurse told me. “We treated that many kids with lice on a given day. We would put 20 kids in front of us – 10 in each row. You could see the bugs crawling through their hair.” 
Even the elected officials who have a right to investigate are kept out.
BCFS won't even allow random inspections of their facilities by the media or members of Congress.
Oklahoma Rep. Jim Bridenstein was denied access last week to the HHS facility at Fort Sill – another facility run by BCFS.
“There is no excuse for denying a federal representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held,” the congressman said in a statement.
Bridenstein said he was told that unannounced visitors are not allowed – even if they are elected officials – and that he would have to make an appointment to visit the facility.
“What are they trying to hide?” he asked. “Do they not want the children to speak with members of Congress?” 
BTW, that's Baptist Child & Family Services. One of the many organizations that are getting Federal money to run the centers. MANY of which are Pro-Open Borders.


Not that closely related - but, interesting. VERY interesting.

I'm sorry to complain, but I find it *very* hard to read the lines you background in white.

Show up with State Police Tactical Squad or A NG Company. That should clear up any question on who is in charge.
