100% Open Immigration: Welcome to our nation's borderlessness by Margaret McCarthy


Lively music by Citizen’s Jazz, followed by a press conference with special guests Surabhi Saraf and Faluda Islam, in which I announced the new U.S. immigration policy of 100% Open Immigration:

“That’s why today, I’m dissolving Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, also known as ICE, entirely. I’m also disbanding U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and introducing U.S. Customs and Border Elimination, a diverse organization responsible for inspiring civility, admiration and respect, and facilitating legitimate trade and unfettered travel. U.S. Customs and Border Elimination will be the hosts of our Nation’s borderlessnesss, America’s unbounded, unlined, de-demarcated extended welcome. Together, we will erode the walls that were built before, dismantle the fences, and erase the lines.”
