Leah Vukmir: Door open for murderers, rapists, terrorists

What’s impossible to comprehend is why politicians like Tammy Baldwin stand in the way of proper border security. If we treated border security with the seriousness it deserves, perhaps Mollie Tibbetts would have returned home, and Laura Abarca would be dropping her daughter off at preschool next fall.
My hopelessly misguided opponent in the U.S. Senate race, Tammy Baldwin, has failed tremendously by not supporting President Trump’s efforts to ensure border security. In fact, Baldwin and her D.C. swamp pals openly advocate for sanctuary cities and open borders. She is apparently happy to leave the door wide open for millions upon millions to enter the United States illegally, to include: murderers, rapists, terrorists, drug dealers, gang members and anyone else who wants to walk right in. If re-elected, Senator Baldwin will vote to advance legislation that will make it easier for illegal immigrants to slip through our borders.
I know all too well the value immigrants add to society. I grew up in a big, fat Greek family. My father immigrated from Greece. I had the privilege of teaching my aunts and uncles English as they assimilated into our wonderful country. My family earned their citizenship by going through a legal process, and because of it, they are intensely proud to be American citizens. Baldwin is cheapening the value of American citizenship.
As a migrant caravan originating in Central America is quickly making its way to our border, we must never forget that U.S. citizenship is a privilege, not an inherent right for all. Thousands of men and women in our armed forces have lost their lives protecting this great nation. We owe it to them to make sure we do not allow Tammy Baldwin to trample on the foundation of America.
