    What you mean to say is that you want to loosen up immigration laws then. Open borders is something completely different. Open borders would infer that people can just cross from one country to another without restrictions at all.

    That's incorrect. There are plenty of reasons it won't work for us today and they've been detailed for you time and again. Oh, and you can refuse to follow the herd and refuse to believe that sticking your hand in the fire will burn you. But you're still going to need that aloe when reality bites you.

    No, it's not. We allow in many Mexican immigrants every year. Immigrants are not illegal aliens and illegal aliens are not immigrants.

    Don't know what to tell you, I've been to Mexico several times without getting vaccinated. How many people get vaccines before they go to Cabo, or Cancun, etc?

    Yep you're probably right. Too late to change the thread title now, though.

    MOST people do. You're supposed to be vaccinated so that you don't get sick.

    We have security issues if we open the border. We need to secure the border, and deal with the 12 million illegals we currently estimate to have in the country. Then, and only then, can we try and address immigration reform.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
