The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“What’s the use of fleeing to the United States if MS-13 murderers can simply follow in the victims’ wake? As someone noted on Twitter, ‘If America is to be a place of asylum then there has to be a way to discriminate between those who flee danger and those who are the danger. The border is the only place for that to happen.’

Walls will eventually be understood as places where information can be intelligently applied. They can make it difficult for any high-ranking Third World official to move themselves, their money, or their families to the West unless specially cleared, a concept already contained in the Magnitsky Act. ‘Since 2016 the bill, which applies globally, authorizes the US government to sanction those who it sees as human rights offenders, freezing their assets, and ban them from entering the U.S.’ In the case of failing state officials, the prohibition could be amended to exclude them ‘unless proven not to be human rights offenders’ and force them to have skin in the game of their own countries. Only a barrier can achieve this. Sooner or later it will become apparent that walls as well as bridges are necessary for a global world.” – Richard Fernandez at PJ Media
