"One of the founding principles of our country is to have open borders"

When I called the D.C. office of Senator Richard Durbin and expressed my opposition to any amnesty scheme, whether called that or not, the lady who answered the phone uttered the titular phrase.

Only after I repeated what she said back to her a couple times and used the phrase "controlled borders" did she amend it to use that phrase.

To help fight against such attitudes, please call as many Senators as possible and stress your complete opposition to any form of amnesty, no matter how they try to present it as something else.

The main Senate Switchboard is (202) 224-3121 or (888) 355-3588. A complete list of numbers is here. You can also send free FAXes here.


I thought a guaranteed republican form of government was a founding priciple & constitutional law, apparently I was mistaken.
