Can the USA be the World’s Orphanage?
Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) hit the nail on the head in a recent interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota.
Conservatives have often argued that the left is “trying to have their cake and eat it too” when it comes to illegal immigration and the welfare state.
The simple truth is that you, logically, cannot be for open borders AND the welfare state. It’s impossible. The two cannot coexist.
If you want to have a welfare state, then you must also fight to keep your borders sealed tight. If you want to open your borders, then you must fight to end the welfare state.
Because the two ideas cannot exist in one nation at the same time, it is financially impossible.
