MSNBC talker Toure thinks he has discovered a key security flaw in our nation’s policies and has suggested a solution. Poverty in the Muslim world, he says, is a key threat to U.S. security and to nullify that threat we should open the borders wide and let all Muslims come here to get jobs so that their poverty can be alleviated.
Toure offered the rather startling suggestion during MSNBC’s The Cycle on May 6.
The Cycle co-host began his segment informing viewers that he is now “embracing the open borders movement” going on to note that “We already have open borders for large corporations.”
If globalism and open borders is “good for the global corporate rich guys,” he asked “why isn’t it good for people, especially the working class”?
Toure went on to try and knock down any arguments that it would be bad for our economy to have wide open borders, insisting that immigrants that come here “tend to be entrepreneurial” and have created “more than 450,000 jobs” over the last ten years.
“And what about wages,” he asked. “Well, folks, economists note that immigrants have a positive impact on the wages of Americans who have finished high school. They don’t compete with U.S. workers. They complement them, helping them do their jobs better.”
But then Toure Neblett noted that terrorism is still a national security risk and attempted to head off anyone that would be worried that terrorists would just flood into our country if we opened the borders wide.
“I remind you that the 9/11 hijackers and the two brothers in Boston entered our shores legally,” he began.
Then he got to his central thesis. The “root” of Muslim extremism, Toure claimed, was impoverished men in Muslim countries. That poverty, he claimed, makes them “more easily radicalized.”
“Muslim poverty is what threatens our security, not our immigration system,” Toure proclaimed.
His solution? Throw away all immigration rules and let all those impoverished men come to America.
Giving these men the chance to work here could diminish their poverty, their anger, and their misunderstanding of the U.S. before they are radicalized.
Just like corporations without borders have given the fat cats a better bottom line, people deserve the chance to be a full part of the global marketplace.
Open borders will improve the world.
Never mind that few of the men of which Toure speaks can read or have any skills or education and won’t add much of substance to our society, never mind that Britain has already tried this to her own detriment, never mind that thousands of such men won’t come here for jobs but will certainly come here bringing their fanaticism and terror, just don’t worry about any of that, folks. Open those borders.
