The question of open borders and the 14th Amendment is the lack of clarification to those illegally within the jurisdiction. That distinction is not explicitly affirmed. Regardless, how can we offer constitutional rights and protections to those whose first act to enter the United States was unlawful? America is a sovereign nation, a Constitutional Republic with borders that are to be regarded, and laws that are to be respected. Anyone failing to do so should not be afforded equal protection under our laws! If that ends up being the case, then America is relegated to just being a piece of terrain by which anyone can illegally occupy . . . the leftist, and global elitist belief is rooted in the concept of no borders, no wall, no USA at all.
