But you do seem to be calling for open borders. Many American citizens are able to see the injustice in deportating people who came here as young children. So there is a reluctant willingness to make an exception this one last time, but only if it is coupled with measures to ensure it truly is the last time and if every other loophole is closed.

Your article takes a different approach. It argues effectively that once you accept a compromise on the Dreamers that you are now sufficiently softened up to accept Chain migration, Visa lotteries, Anchor babies, and more. You don’t call it open borders, but you want to turn every spigot on and won’t close a one. Why can’t we have the Wall, e- Verify, and crackdowns on sanctuary cities in return for a long term path for the Dreamers?

What has become clear is that some Dreamer advocates ultimately couldn’t care less about the Dreamers. They use them as political pawns to be sacrificed in a larger game.
