Are Our Borders Better Than Your Borders?
"Future historians might well brand 2015 the 'year of borders.' Presidential hopeful Donald Trump used the word “border” a full seven times in his seven and a half-minute campaign announcement in mid-June, and his proposal to build a wall on our southern border has been a major theme in the GOP primary season thus far. Before he dropped out of the race, Republican Gov. Scott Walker said that another wall — this one on the northern U.S. border with Canada — might also be needed. Yet while we see our own borders as inviolable, we seemingly have few issues deploying American power across others’ sovereign lines as soon as we deem any threat exists to our security or economic interests."
