We witnessed the two leaders of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party advocating open borders in the United States. Pelosi and Schumer said they opposed securing the borders of the United States, even though it is a constitutionally mandated responsibility of the government. These same collectivists have advocated illegal immigration into the United States and have facilitated the illegal immigrants in every way they could including establishing their own conclaves and not becoming a part of the United States. This is an extremely dangerous policy.
To witness the dangers of this collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive) policy, we can just look across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. The open border policy mandated by the European Union has torn apart countries and is tearing apart the European Union, which is not a bad thing. The European Union is a collectivist organization and has brought about economic and social unrest in Europe just like collectivist policies always do.
The people of the UK voted to leave the European Union. Prime Minister May has attempted to negotiate an agreement with the European Union. However, the agreement she has negotiated would keep the UK under many of the European Union dictates for several years. The people of the UK are saying that is not acceptable.
Angela Merkel, who has held complete power in Germany, and many say was the force behind the immigration policies of the European Union, is now a lame duck after she was forced to surrender power of her party. More and more the people of Germany are demanding controls on immigration as they face more and more terrorist attacks and lawlessness such as killings and rapes by the Muslim immigrants Merkel insisted on allowing into Germany.
The people of France are also revolting against the current government in France. Although this revolt is centered around higher taxes to promote the collectivist false claim of global weather change due to mankind, there has been more and more unrest in France as the French citizen has been the victim of Muslim terrorist attacks and Muslim immigrant lawlessness including killings and rapes.
Italy, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, to name others, have also had strong opposition to the European Union and collectivist mandated rules of open borders. Members of the EU, Australia, and the United States have all suffered from Muslim terrorism, killings, and rapes due to illegal immigration policies supported by collectivist organizations such as the EU in Europe and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) in the United States.
The American people elected President Trump primarily because of his anti-collectivist policies including his promise to secure the southern border. Despite the obvious results of open borders, the collectivists continue to insist on following the open border mandate of Karl Marx. Europe is revolting against the EU. Australia is insisting on closing its borders. The United States people have spoken by electing President Trump. Nevertheless, the elitist mentality that is always a part of any collectivist movement as witnessed in Europe with the EU is also prevalent in the United States as a major element of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
The mentality of the collectivist has always been that as they strive for power to bring about total conformity to their collectivist (Marxist. Communist, socialist, progressive) ideals, the ends always justify the means. They have no scruples or morals when implementing any means to bring about their desired ends of a totally conforming and totally equal Marxist totalitarian state. Pelosi and Schumer stated this as they advocated for and defended their desire for open borders in the filmed meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office for all to see.
