“Just because someone wants to move from one country to another . . . .”

From Novus Ordo Watch, via The Thinking Housewife:

By the way, there is nothing good or holy or worthy of compassion in being a migrant per se. The word “migrant” simply denotes someone who moves from one place to another. In and of itself, this is neither good nor bad; it is morally indifferent. Just because someone wants to move from one country to another doesn’t mean the desire is justified, prudent, or holy, and the destination country certainly has no moral obligation to grant entry to the migrant. On the contrary: A country which allows entry to anyone who asks, merely because he asks, is in grave danger of destroying itself. A nation without borders is not a nation, and a country’s first obligation is towards its own citizens, not towards everyone else.
