Border Politics, Treaty of Westphalia, and Does the US Really Exist Anymore?

Posted on Updated on

I did a little independent research this morning regarding the southern border of the United States.  Interesting…

There are 4 border states with Mexico.  California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

There are 9 US House of Reps (Congress) districts across those 4 states that border Mexico.

Of those 9 districts on the border 8 of them are Democrats.

Huh…  I didn’t dig deeper to see if those 8 Democrats were kicking and screaming about the overwhelming tide illegally crossing the border they are charged with protecting.  I wonder if the US is a nation any more since our border seems to be meaningless.  The whole idea of a national state and the Treaty of Westphalia be damned I guess…
