Open Borders and Ellis Island

I see I have to be the voice of reason here.
First off let me say this.
I don’t see a problem with open borders.

But that said the difference between the immigrants who came through Ellis Island and the migrant caravanners is that the ones who came through Ellis island didn’t try to crash through the borders by force as we saw happen on our Southern border last night.

I think it’s fair to say that had the immigrants that came through Ellis Island resorted to that kind of violence to gain entry to the United States the response of the immigration officials would have been about the same as it is today.

Not to defend the border patrol but we ARE talking about a very different sort of mindset among the immigrant community desiring entry into this country.
