Anne would have us believe that Open Borders is just some sort of restrictionist fantasy. Were it only so. Sadly, the WSJ has been overtly promoting Open Borders since the 1980s. Worse, it has continued it’s ideological war on the American people even after 9-11. A typical example of WSJ thinking follows
"Reformist Mexican President Vicente Fox raises eyebrows with his suggestion that over a decade or two Nafta should evolve into something like the European Union, with open borders for not only goods and investment but also people. He can rest assured that there is one voice north of the Rio Grande that supports his vision. To wit, this newspaper."
"Indeed, during the immigration debate of 1984 we suggested an ultimate goal to guide passing policies � a constitutional amendment: "There shall be -- open borders."
July 2, 2002 editorial entitled "Open NAFTA Borders? Why Not?"
Of course, advocacy of Open Borders isn’t limited to the editorial page of the WSJ. A few other versions of this insanity include:
Open Borders: The Case Against Immigration Controlshttp://www.asylumsupport.info/publications/pluto/open.htm
Open the Borders!http://www.newsocialist.org/magazine/37/article02.html
Keep the Borders Openhttp://www.fff.org/comment/com0202h.asp
Open the Bordershttp://www.reason.com/news/show/117320.html
Stop "Gatekeeper," open the border!http://www.etext.org/Politics/MIM/cal/OpenBorder.htm
The last link is from the Maoist International Movement. It tells you something that “The Hero of Baghdad”, the WSJ, the Maoists, and of course, the conventional communists have gotten together to promote a borderless America. Of course, the WSJ doesn’t really believe in the United States. Famously, WSJ editorialist Robert Barkley once said "I think the nation-state is dead", "Kenichi Ohmae is right."
