How can our borders not already be described as "thrown open" when a seven year old can walk into our country unfettered ? To think for a second that we now have any measure of border security is foolish. Our borders are a joke. As is our enforcement of our current immigration laws thanks chiefly to a president who selectively decides which portions of the laws he wishes to enforce. He has made a bad situation much worse due to his unilateral actions.

Aunty, What you claim to be as answers are just another series of steps destined to fail. Until our government addresses the border security once and for all no other measure will succeed. Immigrants already ignore our laws when they venture into our country so anything short of a wall will not stop them.

How fortunate we are that we were planted here to bloom – even the liberals accused of being uncharitable. We can’t do it all, but there is not some fine print at the bottom of the pages of the Bible telling us where to draw a line at what we do. You can’t get more all inclusive that loving your enemies. Protesting children, whose parents sent them on a hellish journey as the better alternative, with angry shouts and signs is pretty far from that directive. It is the duty of government to protect us, and we would be fools to throw open the borders. No one is proposing that. Immigration reform that includes increased border security – sponsored by 4 Democrats and 4 Republicans, including Rubio, passed the Senate over a year ago. There are answers. Many conservatives don’t really want them. Because politics.
