Open Border Propaganda

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders took a surprising line on immigration in a recent interview, denouncing higher immigration levels as a right-wing “Koch brothers proposal.”

Sanders was being interviewed by Ezra Klein of Vox, who pointed out that Sanders’ self-proclaimed socialist beliefs typically entailed taking a more international view of politics. The implications of that point of view, Klein suggested, include “things like sharply raising the level of immigration we permit, even up to a level of open borders.”

Absolutely not, Sanders replied.

“Open borders? No, that’s a Koch brothers proposal,” he said. “That’s a right-wing proposal, which says essentially there is no United States… What right-wing people in this country would love is an open-border policy.”



Democrats want illegal votes. Republicans want cheaper labor. Immigration may as well be social security: it has been a political issue for my entire adult life and it only gets worse.

  1. Until we remove the panderers, traitors and career schleps, these will remain but 2 sides of the same coin.
    “Cleaning house” has become a necessity. And I mean damned near ALL of them! This includes the courts -- especially the SCOTUS.

    These millions do not come to assimilate but instead claim the US for Mexico..

    This loon Sanders could just win the house of sodomy, the people will vote in another psychotic whom is a Bolshevik pig. Oh Babylon, Babylon how thou hast fallen, you have become the cage of every unclean spirit.
