Why Are the Democrats Obsessed With Open Borders?
“Breaking News! Trump Tear Gases Women and Children at the Southern Border!”
While that couldn’t possibly be further from the truth, it was basically the emotional headline that nearly every mainstream media outlet ran with after Border Patrol agents pushed back a violent assault on a border crossing.
The liberal media is using the migrant caravan issue at our southern border as yet another battering ram to bludgeon our President. And in case you haven’t already seen the picture being circulated of a woman and her children retreating from our border as border agents defend the border from charging migrants, here it is.

Why is this picture the ‘face’ of the migrant caravan? In the words of Obama’s right hand man Rahm Emanuel, “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” and that is exactly what is taking place at our border with Mexico.
Let’s explore why Democrats want open borders
The Democrats have perfected the art of exploiting human tragedy to further their cause, I mean after all their motto is “the ends justify the means.”
So what are the ends? I think it’s obvious – more government.
The means? Collapse the welfare state within the United States by overwhelming they system with an influx of immigrants that they know damn well this country cannot handle.
The Means: Why do Democrats want open borders?
The answer is straightforward, POWER! It’s simple really, more people necessitates a ‘need’ for more government. The current migrant caravan story is just the latest example. We’ve been in an illegal immigration crisis for decades, with tens of millions of people entering the country illegally.
So follow with me now – more people, more government. And what’s the point of an open border? To invite illegal immigration. And who are illegal immigrants? Of necessity, they are typically people who have very little. They probably don’t speak the language. They don’t have jobs or support systems ready. So they become wards of the state.
The Democrats bribe immigrants with promises of healthcare, education, food stamps, etc. the same way they do everyone else. They create dependents. So now you have a whole new class of Democrat voters that will be with them for life.
A brand new study shows that 63 percent of non-citizens are on some kind of welfare program. 70 percent of non-citizens who have been in the country for longer than 10 years are on a welfare program.
The issue soon becomes, as Margaret Thatcher put it, “You eventually run out of other peoples money.” At which point the existing system collapses.
Enter the Cloward-Piven Strategy
What better way to collapse the existing system and create the need for a massive expansion of the federal government than to import millions of illegal aliens into the country? The idea is to overwhelm a system that already cannot keep up with the demand for handouts. So what happens then?
Two sociologist/progressive activists posited that exact question, and devised a nefarious scheme outlining a way in which progressives within the federal government could achieve their ends (power, more government.)
The Cloward-Piven Strategy is,
A political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.”
“A guaranteed annual income,” I feel like I have heard that somewhere before…
The Ends: control
What better way to control the masses than to be the sole arbiter and source of their well-being? Is there any more ultimate leverage point than to coerce people to do whatever you want, just so they can eat?
Cloward and Piven also touched on another topic of the Democrat progressive movement, redistribution of income…
The ultimate objective of this strategy—to wipe out poverty by establishing a guaranteed annual income—will be questioned by some. Because the ideal of individual social and economic mobility has deep roots, even activists seem reluctant to call for national programs to eliminate poverty by the outright redistribution of income.
This is a term we hear a lot today as the left constantly demonizes the so-called rich, saying they don’t pay their fair share. Opening the border and importing thousands of illegal migrants into this country would only magnify those calls for even more redistribution of income from the “rich.”
Demand the Border Wall
It’s clear why the Democrats want an open border. They see an open border as a means to an end, a pathway to gain the power they have always dreamed of. The only way to stop them from achieving that goal is to back the few politicians we have left who truly stand up for a secure border. The very future of our country is at stake!
