Guilty people don't get caught as easily. That is my opinion in a nutshell.
    I say we should as well. We just need to loosen up the quotas and streamline the process.

    Sounds reasonable.

    Why don't we ban people from going on vacation then? Can't have folks coming home with some crazy virus, can we?
    People are supposed to have vaccinations before they travel to third world countries. As a matter of fact, I believe there are multiple vaccinations that one must get before traveling to a third world country.

    Well that's not open borders then.

    Certain countries, yes. Mexico isn't included in that list.

    I'm talking about opening them up relative to where we are today.

    I suggest machine gun nests along the border, and a Constitutional amendment allowing surviving invaders to be sold as slaves.

    Or, if our low information citizens are feeling terribly concerned about the people we use as a convenient underclass, I'd be satisfied if we merely annexed Mexico.

    But I invite anyone who lies in a fantasy world of open borders and unicorns to allow illegal invaders to live in their home rent free while supporting them.

    Reasonable, but think of the economic possibilities. If we flood the US with cheap labor maybe we can get the minimum wage crap taken down here, or at least reduced to something reasonable, like $2/hr. The unskilled and semi-skilled here are way too overpaid compared to their global peers. Going even a step further, we should give out green cards to all foreigners who have middle class level skills who would be happy to work for more way than they did in their own country but much less than what the typical overpaid middle class person here makes. It's about time we start to discipline the middle class and bring them back to the reality of global labor markets.

    The opening question should have been: Should we close the borders? How do you open something that's already open?

    Not true at all, and you can get very sick if you don't get vaccinated.
