A recent letter writer’s remarks (Jan. 12) to the effect that Trump’s desire for border security amounts to “personality disorders” and will lead to “fascism” are almost too ludicrous for comment. This is Trump Derangement Syndrome for sure.
How do secure borders add up to fascism or xenophobia? We are only a country at all to the extent that we have real borders. The American left essentially opposes border security because an unlimited influx of unvetted people will promote causes dear to them, like a permanent and ever-larger government-dependent class of voters.
If anyone really thinks the left really cares about the well-being of real working American citizens, I have some great oceanfront property in Kansas I’d like to sell you cheap.
