You’re Wrong Nancy, A Border Wall is Not Immoral

Right now, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is continuing to fight President Trump as hard as she possibly can on funding for the border wall. At the same time Pelosi is trying to gain the upper hand in negotiations with the President, she’s also trying to win the war of public opinion, taking time in her speeches to explain why the nation supposedly does not need a wall on its southern border.

It’s really not possible for Pelosi to argue against the wall on economic grounds. The $5 billion that Trump is requesting is peanuts compared to what Democrats are willing to spend on things far less vital than border security. Likewise, Pelosi can’t really argue against the effectiveness of a border wall, either. Border patrol agents are overwhelmingly in favor of the wall, and common sense dictates that a tall, strong wall would almost entirely put a stop to illegal immigration.

Of course, the real reason that Pelosi opposes the wall is the fact that she is trying to prevent Donald Trump from being able to deliver on his biggest campaign promise. She obviously can’t say that in her speeches, though. And so, unable to tell the truth and unable to argue against the wall on logical grounds, Pelosi has turned to the most tried and true tactic of the Democratic party – unfounded emotional appeals.

According to Nancy Pelosi, a border wall is “immoral”. She bewilderingly claims to be in favor of border security in one sentence, then claims that a border wall is an immoral approach to border security in the next. These two contradicting statements make zero sense, yet it doesn’t matter – Pelosi tugs on the heartstrings of her base, and they eat it up without giving the logic of her reasoning a second thought.

Nevertheless, it’s essential to put logic over emotion when it comes to major policy decisions. So how logical are Pelosi’s statements really? Is a border wall truly immoral? The answer to this question is a resounding no.

The government of any nation exists to look out for the best interests of its own citizens. Providing security for those citizens is by far the government’s number one reason for existing. Providing economic security for those citizens is a close second – and a border wall accomplishes both of these things. It is not immoral for any nation, the United States included, to put the needs of its citizens above the needs of people from other countries. In fact, it is imperative that they do so.

Claiming that a border wall is immoral is akin to claiming that it is immoral for a mother and father to lock their doors at night in order to protect their children. After all, what if some cold, hungry stranger wants to wander in from off the street? Never mind the fact that they might be a murderer and nevermind the fact that you barely have enough food for your own children – by Pelosi’s logic, locked doors are immoral. Of course, she doesn’t follow this logic when it comes to her own family. Pelosi not only locks her doors at night; she also, ironically enough, has a rather impressive wall surrounding her estate.

Pelosi isn’t arguing that all means of border security are immoral, though – she just claims that a wall is. While everyone knows that Pelosi is in favor of completely open borders, she can’t say that in the current political climate. Instead, she has to claim that the border wall is immoral while alluding to ambiguous “other means” of border security.

Let’s suppose for a moment that Nancy Pelosi does, in fact, have an effective plan for border security that doesn’t involve a border wall, in spite of the fact that she hasn’t revealed a single concrete detail of any such plan. How would this plan be any more moral than a border wall? If it is indeed effective, then the end result is exactly the same – illegal immigrants are prevented from crossing over the border. If it’s not effective, then what’s the point?

Pelosi cannot claim that a border wall is immoral while at the same time pretending to support border security. Either stopping illegal immigration is immoral, or it’s not. The wall or lack thereof has nothing to do with the question. Nevertheless, the logic doesn’t matter to Pelosi. She knows that her emotional appeals will resonate with those who don’t analyze her reasoning. And, unfortunately, the percentage of Americans who are willing to put logic over their emotions has reached an all-time low.

  1. Like!! I blog frequently and I really thank you for your content. The article has truly peaked my interest.

  2. Several but I will just mention one, she and Others have openly suggested that we just hire more border guards. Can you even imagine just how much money that will cost over the years? I promise you it would be much more as an annual cost in lieu of a one time cost and the benifits would also be greater in the long run.

    1. Richard, well said, PLUS….the border guards’ lives that may be lost by these savage invaders!!!

  3. Do Nancy and Schumer live in “accessible homes” – so anyone can come visit? Or camp out on their lawns? I am visiting friends and relatives in Florida right now. The neighborhoods here are mostly gaited communities. Nobody gets in unless they are vetted by the gate-keepers who get your information – ID’s etc. – call the folks you plan to visit and get AUTHORIZED to enter. Like a WALL, right?

  4. Great article! I would take “unfortunately, the percentage of Americans who are willing to put logic over their emotions has reached an all-time low” one step further. I live in Europe and would say that a great percentage of the western world has put emotions over logic. Even hardcore facts don’t stand up to hate, or being offended by something. But my prayer is that the Truth will set them free as in the end it always does!

  5. To the Black Texas Congresswomen’s bill to Civil Rights Compensation, please tell me what the cost will be to the jews? I will be held responsible for something I did not have anything to do with. With all the Anti-Semitism by you and your people, when will their be a Kerner Commission to compensate me and my jewish suffering that has gone on for 50 years.

    1. Well stated and truthful, factual argument, proving libtards are extremely biased and hypocritical toward their own, selfish, self-serving agenda.

  6. Totalitarian (Fascist and Communist) governments build border walls in the modern world. Democratic societies manage their borders by more sophisticated means, in order to encourage trade, exchange ideas, and spread our values. Building on JFK’s 1963 “Ich bin ein Berliner” address, the above ideas are a paraphrase of what was perhaps Ronald Reagan’s most famous “Tear down that wall” speech, in June 1986, at the now-eliminated Berlin Wall. Berlin is now the leading showcase of self-reflective history and restored democracy — thanks, in small part to JFK and Ronald Reagan.

    1. Accept your forgetting one thing. The Berlin wall was not built to Increase border security. It was not built to correct economic damage caused by a group on one side of the wall. It was built to suppress the people living in west Germany and keep them in. A wall meant to keep people in that you can be killed for crossing. A wall that makes it easier for a communist or fascist government to control it’s people is far different from a wall that exists to protect it’s people and keep invaders out. This wall would create checks and balances at the border and hopefully correct 45billion dollars worth of yearly drain on our economy caused by taking care of and fixing issues caused by a group of people that blatantly break the law to enter our country. It will force these people to enter this country the right way instead of being the only group of people in American history that gets patted on the back for being rule breakers by people like you.

    2. Hey Chuck Pinnochio, I was there! You can’t BS me on the reason for the wall between East & West Germany, you fascist! People who tried to escape Communism by crossing that wall or fence were murdered by East German guards! You idiot! President Trumps border wall is to keep criminals out, and not to keep freedom loving American people from leaving. SO, feel free to leave the U.S., traveling in the opposite direction of the illegal, criminal trespassers fighting to get IN to the U.S. May i please contribute to your taxi, Uber, or airfare to get the hell out of my country? You moron!

  9. A wall is not immoral a Congress where multimillionaires are raping the public and trying to start Marxism rather than Capitalism is immoral.Pelosi is worth $65,000,000 and has her family employed as well on taxpayers this is truly immoral. Israel surrounded by enemies who teach their children on national TV to hate Jews, Americans and infidels is immoral.Israel has a wall which is 100% effective. Democrats want open borders, end the Electoral college, allow voter fraud and are thoroughly disreputable liars every day of their lives. Pelosi lives in a walled secluded HOA as does Obama and most of the millionaire Congress people who see their voter only at elections while they spend off time in Hawaii, Bahamas or somewhere far from their voters.

    1. BRAVO, BRAVISSIMO Florida Jim!!! You’ve expressed the exact facts! ALSO….SEE THIS:

      “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.” ASININE WORDS BY POPE FRANCIS!!!

      So President Trump’s campaign social media director, Dan Scavino, tweeted “Amazing comments from the Pope—considering Vatican City is 100% surrounded by massive walls.”

      ALSO THIS: Pamela Geller, a world-famous activist against Islamization and a WND columnist, slammed the pope for his advocacy of open borders policies in both Europe and the United States.

      “He’s a hypocrite,” she charged. “If he is sincere, let him tear down the Vatican walls and admit Muslim migrants in unlimited numbers. Some can stay in his luxurious apartments. Until he does that, he is exposed as a self-righteous leftist hypocrite.”

  10. Ok nonetheless something you might consider. Tear down your wall give illegals immigrants your address. You employ them, give them aj job, pay them a weekly wage, provide the following their retirement, medical, and provide a home on your property, and pay for their education all out of your pocket. Maybe you can give up all your Armani clothes you say you must wear how will your fam Like that

  11. there are none so blind as those that will not see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. I do believe The Democrats pick a new speaker. Nancy has lost it. She is power hungry, and really don’t care about the sovereignty of our country or the American people.She doesn’t understand what illegal means.

  13. If the Democrats (and Nancy Pelosi) feel it’s immortal to build a barrier, a wall, a fence, etc., in order to keep out people that mean harm to America, my question to them is: “Do you leave your homes unlocked during the day and night for “visitors” to walk in off the streets? Do you put up fences or walls around your own homes to keep your families safe or do you have an “open door policy”??? I think I know your answer(s) but I’d like to hear it straight from all of you Democrats and some Republicans that are so against our President wanting to protect not only his family, but all of our families. What we have here is a “party” of immature politicians who “WE THE PEOPLE” have mistakenly voted into office thinking they were going to do right by us. What we got, is a bunch of power hungry acting like children. I take that back, even our children are more realistic than you all are at this point. Grow up or retire your positions so we can put people in office that will listen to “WE THE PEOPLE”.

  14. The tag line for this article claims a Biblical basis for a border wall. So…Where is there any reference to a Biblical basis for a border wall in this article? Somebody is playing a shell game here.

  15. I THINK THAT WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD ASK FOR SCHUMER AND PELOSI TO STEP DOWN. AND FOR THE WALL MAYBE WE NEED TO ASK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, GO TO THE POLLS AND VOTE .

    TWO QUESTIONS IS ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE ON THE BALLOT,

    YES WE WANT THE WALL?___________________

    NO WE DO NOT WANT THE WALL? _____________

    I FOR ONE DO NOT WANT OUR PRESIDENT TO BACK DOWN…. HE’S COME TO FAR AND HAVE DONE SO MANY GOOD THINGS FOR THIS COUNTRY… TO SEE IT ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN…

  16. I think some of us should go to either Pelosi or Schumer’s Homes, and camp in their front yards, and demand they keep us. I guarantee, we would be arrested and removed so fast, it would be like a whirlwind. These people are out and out hypocrites. The only thing they are interested in is making this country a socialist republic.

  17. Frick and Frack, oh excuse me – nancy and chuck are are simply incompetent. Their “paychecks” should also not be given to them because it was always my understanding that one had to “WORK” before one received compensation and we all know they aren’t working!!

  18. Should your motive the following is to discover paintings on the market
    Melbourne or paintings available Brisbane, unfortunately however,
    you can’t see it here. A vector path, no matter what the
    twists and turns are, may well be more elastic and scalable.
    Then it makes no difference if it’s heads or tail, one
    can possibly predict the final results.

  19. Should your motive this is to find paintings available Melbourne or paintings on the market Brisbane, unfortunately but you can’t view it
    here. Waterslide paper emerges in clear or white however clear is a bit more preferred, considering that any kind of unprinted locations around the image remains clear.
    Then it is not important when it is heads or tail,
    one can predict the last results.
