Bernie leads his party to open borders

Patrick Buchanan on

Some 100 members of an American Mormon community in northern Mexico, nine of whom -- women, children, toddlers -- were massacred a week ago on a lonely stretch of highway, just crossed over into Arizona.

Other family members who have lived there for decades will follow.

The atrocity was the work of one of the cartels battling for control of the drug traffic into the United States.

In Mexico's Sinaloa state in October, an arrest of Ovidio Guzman Lopez, son of "El Chapo," who sits in a New York prison, brought a military-style cartel attack on the state capital, Culiacan, followed by a surrender to the cartel gunmen by national guard and army troops, and a release of the captive.

"Is Mexico a failed state?" asks The Washington Times. Its editorial describes "Another Blood-Soaked Year in Mexico" where 17,000 people were murdered by July and the 2019 death toll is expected to reach 32,000.

USA Today reports: "Through August of the current fiscal year, the Border Patrol apprehended 457,871 migrants arriving as 'family units' ... a 406% increase compared to the 90,554 family unit apprehensions during the same period the previous year. Migrant families from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador made up almost 92% of the total."

 

With cartel battles escalating into a war that Mexico City has no stomach for fighting, and a record number of migrants from Central America crossing Mexico to flood into the USA, what is the Democratic Party's policy for halting the rising tide?

Democrats are moving toward an "open door" policy on the U.S. border, an open borders embrace of any and all who wish to come.

America, apparently, does not belong to those who live here and love the country. America belongs to anyone who chooses to come. America belongs to the world.

Consider Bernie Sanders' immigration proposal, outlined the week of the massacre of Mormon women and children.
