It’s time for conservatives (and libertarians) to have a VERY serious debate about immigration. The issue is way too important to leave to emotions and assumptions.
As Christians around the world celebrated the arrival of the Three Kings—the Magi of the Orient—on Epiphany, the president of the United States called for $33 billion to shore up America’s borders with $18 billion for the wall. Would the Magi have been admitted in 2018? “Excuse me, Balthasar, but I need to see that your papers are in order. Oh, I’m sorry, but your gift of myrrh exceeds our 3.2 ounces of liquid allowed.”
Balthazar, Melchior, and Gaspar could have easily come in on tourist visas. Presumably, they would not have been plotting to attack innocent people. The gate in the wall is for people who want to come in legally.
