Democrats keep pretending that ‘open borders’ are a ‘far-right talking point.’

They want to get rid of ICE and other border enforcement agencies.
They want to give illegal immigrants tax-funded health care.
They want to decriminalize illegally crossing the border.
They REFUSE to build a WALL.
What else do you CALL that?!
Jeh Johnson, Barack Obama’s former DHS secretary has been on the inside… and he knows what Castro’s plan is.
This is OPEN BORDERS… no ifs, ands, or buts.
According the Washington Free Beacon:
“That is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders,” Johnson told the Washington Post. “That is unworkable, unwise and does not have the support of a majority of American people or the Congress, and if we had such a policy, instead of 100,000 apprehensions a month, it will be multiples of that.”
And while Castro has a snowball’s chance in hell… many OTHER candidates are advocating the same thing.
Other 2020 candidates, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), and Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) as well as South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg have embraced the proposal. Eight of the more than 20 candidates have expressed explicit support for open borders. Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) said he would “virtually eliminate immigration detention,” if elected president.
This election may be our most important yet.
