The more open our borders become the more it favors and benefits the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). Marx said that borders are the product of the evil imperialist state. Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) despise the United States and the Individualist principles on which it was founded, ingenuity, self-reliance, independence, small government, and a strong family unit. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) favor allowing immigrants into our country, legal or illegal, who will become wards of the state and become a part of the welfare state. This contributes to the welfare state and builds even more of a dependency on a big bureaucratic government which is the desire of Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
A new report states the majority of foreign nationals in the U.S. are receiving welfare benefits. According to the data from Census Bureau, 63-percent of “non-citizen” households are receiving cash, food, medical and housing assistance from the U.S. government. This compared to only 35-percent of American households on welfare.
“From each according to his ability to each according to his need” is the proclamation of Karl Marx. This is what the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have promoted for many years. This is the purpose of the progressive income tax. The common refrain from the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) is that the rich are not paying their fair share. They do not define rich nor do they define fair share. What the Marxist/Progressives do define is open borders. They define open borders as the policy of a compassionate nation. What they really mean is that open borders bring in willing recipients of a welfare state that benefits the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) desire for power by growing a population that beliefs it is their right to receive from the hard work and effort of those who produce.
