More Progressive Not-Quite-Open-Borders BS

   “It’s heartbreaking. It’s really heartbreaking,” Biden said of the camp, according to Border Report. “Across the river is the flag of the United States. The flag of the United States offers people hope. They’re bringing their families and their loved ones here for hope of a better future and a better life for themselves.”
   “We are all immigrants and our nation was built on immigration and immigrants and we are welcoming nation, but that’s not the message we are sending here at the border. We’re saying ‘Stop, don’t come in!’ And that’s not who we are,” she added.
It is heartbreaking that so many people live in such terrible conditions. It's too bad we can't help them all--e.g. can't let them all in. But we can't. And what Biden means is: it's heartbreaking that we aren't letting them all in. And that's a very different thing. There can be no real doubt anymore that progressivism is in favor of unrestricted immigration. Which would be the end of America. What Biden is really saying is: That evil Trump refuses to let everyone in! Which is roughly equivalent to: That evil Trump wants America to continue to exist.
   Our options are clear, really. (1) We can continue to be a nation--which means keeping at least some people out. Which will mean things like: border camps where some of the people we didn't let in live. Or: (2) we can decide that it's better to just give in to incoherent, bleeding-heart bullshit and give up on that whole nation thing.
