Open borders? The final solution?

-A A +A
By Jeffry Gardner

It’s a rather hideous phrase — The Final Solution.

It triggers memories — though fading — of Adolf Hitler’s evil plan to eradicate not only Jews from his Reich, but others he deemed less than worthy to live. Gypsies, certain Slavs. Others.

But more than anything else, the Final Solution tends to stir thoughts of death. And not just death, but premeditated, vile death.   

Perhaps, as the fight intensifies around whether or not our sovereign nation has the right to regulate its borders, the term is applicable. Because if a nation — any nation — isn’t able to secure its borders or is forced by internal elements to abandon even the most minimal efforts to secure its borders, surely then that nation is on a course to its demise.

From calls to establish voter IDs to the simple desire of a state to secure its citizens — in this case, Arizona — the open-borders advocates are determined to strip away our basic understanding of citizenship.

What is under attack here isn’t the notion that law officers should follow the laws of the land and take into custody those who are here illegally — as opposed to legally, you see. What is under threat is the most basic principles of law and order, your constitutional rights, as well as your privileges as a citizen.
