I’ve already written extensively about my views on immigration.
It’s good for the country and for the economy. Always has been. And it’s even needed to save Social Security. We need more workers paying into the system, and the demographics of our population aren’t working in our favor.
But illegal immigration should be stopped, and not only because there is a threat (a real one) of people coming over the border who want to harm this country.
Someday, I’ll be able to tell you the whole story about what intelligence officials are afraid of.
The thing that puzzles me the most, however, is how people can argue in favor of “illegal” immigration. The word “illegal” should speak for itself.
We don’t allow illegal parking, or illegal drugs or illegal anything.
So I think proponents of open borders need to try to change the narrative by changing the word “illegal” to something else — “uninvited” or “undesired” or “prospective” immigrants would work. Or just drop the adjective altogether.
Just call them immigrants. Then those of us who believe in the rule of law won’t have to stumble as to how anyone could allow anything that’s self-described as “illegal” to take place.
