The "Right" To Borders

What gives the US or any other country the "right" to establish a border other than the "nation or "tribe's" ability to draw and enforce lines in the sand, tax, etc.... ?"

Does might make right?

How is it that someone who spent his or her life protecting and serving ALL THE PEOPLE, who swore an oath, can take the side of those who have, for hundreds of years, thousands even, used violence to "draw and enforce lines in the sand, tax, etc...." solely for profit?

Are laws not meant to protect everyone equally?

Are rights not granted by God? Or do we as Americans, bow to some king, government, or invisible state that decides who has rights and who doesn't?

Whatever happened to the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

And lest we forget:

"The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as one of your citizens; you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I the LORD am your God."
— Leviticus 19:34

When you call them "illegal" are you talking about man's law or God's law?

Even though the Bible tells us to "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's" it goes on to say "and to God the things that are God's."

Nowhere in your Bibles does it say children belong to Caesar. Children belong only to God.

National security?

History has shown us that borders and walls do nothing to protect national security. The Walls of Jericho came tumbling down. Genghis Khan and his Mongol hordes rode over and around the Great Wall of China. Every wall ever built was eventually breached.

It's history, look it up.

Building walls only forces an enemy to take the time to become stronger before they attack. And in the meantime those who hide behind the wall become fat, lazy, and complacent. Think about it, America can't even maintain it's life blood, our Interstate Highway System, how well do you think a wall out in the desert will be maintained? In 20 years the wall will be scrap metal.

Borders were designed for taxation-- figure it out. Municipal, county, state, national, all borders exist to collect tax dollars from those who reside within. Cities, counties, states, and nations all argue and fight over borders in order to gain control of the largest numbers of taxpayers and tax dollars.
After all, when has any city, county, state, or nation ever said, "We don't want that land because we cannot afford to patrol it, protect it, maintain it, etc, etc?"

The answer: Never.

So what is the solution?

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
We have the money but instead of spending it to help people we chose to spend it on wars not for freedom but for profit.
