John Kerry to College Grads: Prepare for a ‘Borderless World’

Every great nation has understood the importance of maintaining their boundaries. Without boundaries, there can be no nation.

For decades, Americans have been betrayed by both Republicans and Democrats who have flatly refused to enforce our immigration laws in any meaningful way. Donald Trump has maintained that a border wall is an absolute necessity, but has wavered in his commitment to enforcing immigration laws by labeling his position as “flexible.”

Still, Trump has been labeled the “anti-illegal immigration” candidate and those who favor subverting America, her economy and her culture have harped on Trump’s proposals and derided them as racist.

Secretary of State John Kerry, however, warned college students to reject these notions that we are obliged to maintain our national sovereignty and even told a crowd that they should prepare for a “borderless world.”

During a Friday commencement speech at Northeastern University, Kerry blasted Trump’s policies without ever mentioning the billionaire directly and warned that no walls can protect us from terrorists.

Apparently insisting that we shouldn’t even try to protect our borders from terrorist infiltration, Kerry lectured,

“Many of you were in elementary school when you learned the toughest lesson of all on 9/11. There are no walls big enough to stop people from anywhere, tens of thousands of miles away, who are determined to take their own lives while they target others.”

“So I think that everything that we’ve lived and learn tells us that we will never come out on top if we accept advice from sound-bite salesmen and carnival barkers who pretend the most powerful country on Earth can remain great by looking inward,” Kerry added. “And hiding behind walls at a time that technology has made that impossible to do and unwise to even attempt.”

Kerry also lectured about the supposed need to do-away with borders as a means of competing in a global marketplace.

“For some people, that is all they need simply to climb under the sheets, close their eyes and push the world away,” Kerry stated. “And shockingly, we even see this attitude from some who think they ought to be entrusted with the job of managing international affairs.”

“The future demands from us something more than a nostalgia for some rose-tinted version of the past that did not really exist in any case,” he said. “You’re about to graduate into a complex and borderless world.”

The world may be complex, but it is far from borderless. It is inherently immoral to tell young people that the surest way to national prosperity is to surrender to globalist mentalities and to allow our nation to succumb to vulnerability to terrorism out of a sense of futility.

Either we have a nation or we do not. Nations have borders. Period.
