In case anyone is still making the claim that "nobody wants open borders", here is a writer for America's leading progressive magazine to tell you otherwise.

Quote:
Open Borders Must Be Part of Any Response to the Climate Crisis

The alternative is the death of millions and a world fractured by nationalism.

That quote is a word salad.

It's either the mark of a disorderly, malfunctioning brain or of a cynical yet ham-handed attempt at fear-mongering in the service of a revolutionary agenda.

My money's on the latter.

-Any caravan at the border must get let in
-Any caravan near the border must be brought in
-Amnesty again for illegal immigrants
-More immigrants
-Opposition to merit based immigration
-Easier path to citizenship
-Voting in some elections for illegal immigrants
-Not enforcing existing immigration laws
-Releasing illegal immigrants in the US, even though most don't show back up for their court date

Nuance. Nuance, this clearly isn't open borders...it is more of a porous border.

Yes, almost any story about immigration from establishment media will be aiming to convince you that, to be a descent human being, you've got to favor those things. And recently climate change is thrown in as one more reason why border control is inhumane.

Open borders will do nothing for climate change.

lol... did you miss the title of the article? ... even after I quoted it for you? What would the guy have to write to convince you that he's advocating for open borders?

At least the writers of two articles in this one progressive magazine in the past month and a half, and many others mentioned in those articles. From an April 24:
Quote:
Why Do We Need Open Borders?
There are strong ethical, environmental, and—more commonly—economic arguments for why an open-borders position makes sense. The first and perhaps best argument for open borders is that borders kill...

True sanctuary power, Peter Mancina contends in another chapter in Open Borders, “is a project not to ‘regularize’ everyone’s immigration status, but rather to render all forms of citizenship and immigration status useless.” The goal is to “make governance systems that are not exclusionary on the basis of the nation and citizenship.”
Sean McElwee, the writer and analyst who was fundamental in bringing the Abolish ICE campaign into the mainstream narrative, described the need to intertwine the Abolish ICE, Medicare for All, Green New Deal, and open-borders movements. He sees open borders as a way to collapse gross transnational income inequalities and deal with the coming increase in climate-change-induced migration.

Because John Bolton wants war with Iran, obviously that means the entire country wants war with Iran.

Do you understand that "The Nation" is the name of a magazine? Nobody is claiming that the entire nation wants open borders.
