House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has declared that a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border would be “immoral.” but of course, she cannot present a logical argument to support this declaration.
At her recent press briefing, she conceded that the government has a duty to secure the nation’s borders.
“(W)e have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, north, south, and coming in by plane on our coasts, three coasts, north, south, and west,” she said. “And that’s a responsibility we honor, but we do so by honoring our values as well.”

In that prison, perpetrators of genocide, who had been tried and duly convicted in a justly run court of law, would be fed, sheltered and cared for — but not allowed to leave.
