Recent presidential executive orders have changed policies that have created a current border crisis at our southern border. We are currently experiencing between 4,500 and 6,000 illegal entries a day. Jeh Johnson, former President Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security secretary, previously said 1,000 daily apprehensions overwhelm the system.
But is this even a problem? Isn’t open borders just the right thing to do? Aren’t we are a nation of immigrants? Aren’t we “open to receive not only the opulent and respectable stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all nations and religions” as George Washington said?
