I have been watching the reporting of the thousands of people who want to be a refugee in America. 100s at the border today and thousands on their way.

Why would anyone try to sneak across the border when they can walk to the border and claim refugee status? While they wait for a judge to give them a hearing in 2-5 years they are given a permit to work. Vs. if you sneak across the border, you have to find fake ID and worry about E-Verify.

Having traveled all around the world I have seen countless people in the 3rd World. There is likely 2 billion people living in hellholes throughout Africa and Asia who would love to be a refugee in America. The only thing that is stopping them is an ocean between them and the USA. The sad people from Central America who want to come to America live in hell but likely not much worse than half the population of Africa and places like India.

AGAIN.. Do people who support an open border really understand the scope of world suffering (crime, poverty, disease, etc.)?

They understand.

Open borders advocates are merely communists, and so they don't care about the effects that you detail.

The effective result of open borders is international communism. In fact, borders and communism are possibly the two most tightly correlated primary issues in modern politics.

I know lots of people that support open borders
Every one of them lives in a gated community and has a security system

These liberals have big hearts for the poor huddled masses but those big hearts are robbing their brains of blood and common sense.

We simply cannot take in the worlds poor without it having a negative affect on our society. The majority of Americans live a higher quality of life than most of the world. We have food in abundance, clean water to drink and a bed to sleep in and if you should have trouble there are safety nets like welfare, public assistance, healthcare and rehabs to help you.

It is no wonder that so many people want to come here but the trouble is that when the poor that are fleeing problems in their own countries come here they often bring those same problems with them.

One has to wonder when the card carrying liberals get their way and the borders are opened if they will step up and take these poor people into their homes or will they expect the rest of us to help?

The liberals that I know are social justice warriors on the weekends but they are also stuck up and wouldn't allow a tent city or slum to be built in their backyards to house all these people from third world countries that they want to import.

The thing is we can take in millions of poor people and shower them with our generosity but when America starts to resemble a third world country those millions can go back home but where are we going to go?

Actually he didn't.

And a man with a shriveled hand was there. Looking for a reason to bring charges against Jesus, they asked him, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”

He said to them, “If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable is a person than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”

Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other. But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus.
(Matthew 12: 11-13)

Per the bolded --- We all know that liberals are hypocrites. They call those of us who don't want to be inundated with illegals "racists" and "xenophobes". All the while, they won't step up and offer to move any illegals into their homes and instead expect the taxpayers to take care of them.

If their schools got flooded with illegal aliens and anchor babies, they would be screaming about their property values. Yet when it happens in other neighborhoods, they are quick to label people in those neighborhoods "racists" and "xenophobes".

Liberals embody the height of NIMBYism. It's easy for them to sit in their ivory towers and criticize others while these liberals talk the talk but won't walk the walk.

One might have thought that after I controdicted him with scripture you might have reconsidered your reply.
