Open Borders on Steroids

From the actual GND proposal to Congress:

To achieve the Green New Deal goals and mobilization, a Green New Deal will require the following goals and projects:

  1. providing all people of the United States with—
    (i) high-quality health care;
    (ii) affordable, safe, and adequate housing;
    (iii) economic security; and
    (iv) access to clean water, clean air, healthy and affordable food, and nature.

Notice that it says “people,” not citizens. It’s not just open borders, it’s open borders on steroids.

I’m sure “nature” will be super happy when we invite the whole world in and guarantee that we will feed, house, keep and cure everybody while providing free nature trips. That will do enormous good to the environment.

And it’s not an accidental slip. Here is another example:

  1. guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States;

And there are more examples. I’ll let you guess how many times the word “citizen” appears in the document in any context.
