Open-Borders Hillary

Surging illegal immigration will not be stopped by Hillary Clinton.

Homeland Security officials are scrambling to find space to house the ballooning number of illegal immigrants awaiting deportation — some 45,000 people. Immigration and Customs Enforcement currently has 40,000 illegals in detention centers, the largest number it has ever had. Illegal immigration has surged up 23% from last year’s numbers. Within the surging number of migrants is the drastic increase of both unaccompanied children and family members of people already here. For fiscal year 2016, the number of unaccompanied children and family members caught was 137,366, which was a slight increase over the 2014 number. This is further evidence that Barack Obama’s immigration policies have (intentionally) fueled the crisis.

But to leftists like Obama and Hillary Clinton, there really is no crisis. Clinton shares the open-borders vision of leftist billionaire and financier George Soros. In 1998, Soros wrote, “The sovereignty of states must be subordinated to international law and international institutions. We need some global system of political decision-making. In short, we need a global society to support our global economy.” In May 2013, Clinton told a closed-door audience at Banco Tau in Brazil, “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”

The reason leftists have little serious concern for — and in fact work to prevent — stemming illegal immigration is their belief in the superiority of international law over and against that of individual sovereign nations. Logically, if one favors a vision for an international governing authority with the power to dictate what it sees as acceptable laws to individual nation states, one would find the concept of national borders irrelevant. Such is the case with a leftist like Hillary Clinton.
