In normal times, presidential candidates in most countries make campaign promises to protect their citizens and ensure security and national sovereignty for their homelands.
The 2016 election in the United States has, however, taken a strange and potentially deadly twist.
As revealed by WikiLeaks, the Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, has pledged to work for “open borders” between the United States, Mexico and Canada. In a 2013 paid speech to Banco Itau, a Brazilian bank, Hillary Clinton stated: “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.”
Clinton’s “dream” presumably means the southern U.S. border would be a conduit for untold millions of migrants. It is in stark contrast to the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, who has committed to building a secure border wall to improve security for the United States and improved protection for citizens.
One may argue that more “openness” between Western Hemisphere countries might possibly have some benefits, but the risks to the health and safety of Americans are far greater than the few benefits and are more serious than have been discussed in the media and at the three presidential debates.
Just what are those risks? Three major ones are:
- cost burdens on American taxpayers;
- terrorism; and
- contagious diseases.
