The New York Times has long been known as a far-to-the-left publication, and this report is no exception to that standard. A recent article by one of their editors offered the opinion that Democrats must get off the dime and push for a large number wide-ranging open borders measures, the essence of which might just blow your mind. Just remember as you read this that it is an opinion piece, and not the views accepted by any of us here a DavidHarrisJr.com.
More from Breitbart:
The existing border wall must be torn down so that migrants can freely enter the United States, says an open borders op-ed published by the New York Times.
“Democrats should follow their voters, who increasingly want more open borders, and reframe the immigration debate by rejecting the very notion that the border needs more ‘security’ and making it clear that the real problem is the denial of migrants’ rights,” says the op-ed by Daniel Denvir, an open borders advocate, who argues that “[t]he time has come for the Democratic Party to push for concrete policies to make the border more open.”
The border must be demilitarized, which would include demolishing the already-existing wall and dramatically downsizing the Border Patrol. Criminal sanctions on illegal entry and re-entry must be repealed. Opportunities for legal immigration, particularly from Mexico and Central America, must be expanded. The right to asylum must be honored. And citizenship for those who reside here must be a stand-alone cause.
Even the Democrats’ support for “border security technology” is a bad thing, wrote Denvir:
Democrats have for far too long let their political opponents define the terms of debate. Now they’re doing it again: House Democrats’ proposal heading into the negotiations with Republicans didn’t include funding for new physical barriers or additional Border Patrol agents, but it did offer significantly increased funding for “border security technology.”
That’s not only bad for immigrants who, as a result of militarized borders are more likely to be kidnapped, violently assaulted and driven to cross via the lethal desert. It’s also bad for Democrats, who are handing ammunition to the nativist right at a time when Republicans are on the back foot and polls show that Democratic voters are moving decidedly leftward on immigration and the border.
Denvir presents himself as a leftist, but the New York Times‘ audience is decidedly upper class. The Times‘ pitch to advertisers, for example, says its online audience consists of 91 million people, with a median age of 48 and a household income of $96,000. This is far higher than the nation’s median income of $60,000 in 2017.
Moreover, wealthy people tend to gain much of their income through the stock market, which makes investors rich when salaries are reduced. Devin’s open borders policy would dramatically lower salaries while funneling hundreds of billions in wages to the stock portfolios of his New York Times‘ editors and readers.
The wealth transfer is already huge under current policies, which provide businesses with a combined legal immigrant and illegal migrant population of at least 45 million — including at least 12 million illegals — plus at least 1.5 million college-graduate guest workers.
Immigrants — legal or not — are good for business because they help lower wages, raise rents, and spur purchases of many products and services.

The article continues at some length, which you can read in the above link if you have a few extra minutes. The big picture is revealing. The main goal is to enable globalism. What would really be telling is if the NYT would lower their guard and permit their business to be taken over by the low-wage and low-skilled illegals they want to push on the rest of us. I think we’ll have to check Hell for icicles if that ever happens.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
