Just saw a picture of a hat that said No One is Illegal.
Can I just say how incredibly absurd that statement is? This image is used, of course, in association with the current border issue.
Full disclosure, I identify politically as a libertarian. I believe in the rule of law, and as such, we are (or in theory should be) a nation of laws. And our laws specify a legal means of entry and citizenship. If a person doesn’t follow those rules to gain entry, they are here illegally. Thus, they are illegal.
I understand the humanitarian aspect of the border issue. I do sympathize with the families. But I find it hard to be too sympathetic to anyone who doesn’t respect our country’s laws. Needless to say, I find myself at a point where I am uncertain on which side to make a stand.
