You can’t argue that Obama imprisoned child immigrants while also arguing that he had an open border policy

I’d like to preface this post by saying that, as a result of economic insecurity, climate change, authoritarianism, and any number of other factors, the United States will almost certainly see more immigration over the coming decades, as an increasing number of people, quite understandably, begin gravitating toward more stabile, less dangerous countries.
