With all of the coverage regarding the Honduran caravan marching toward the U.S. border, it’s time to have a conversation about who we want to be as a country in the future. Not in the distant future, but in the very near future; maybe less than 10 years from now. Because what we decide to do today will set the tone for the next several generations.
Like nails on a chalkboard, we keep hearing Democrats and left-wing activists talk about these desperate immigrants seeking asylum and refuge from dysfunctional societies. We are told that it’s about “humanity first” and that we have a moral obligation to take them in.
However, we should not be fooled by the emotional reactions (and political maneuverings) of those who claim to speak for the caravan. The United States is under zero moral obligations to take citizens from misgoverned countries around the globe.
