The article offers perspectives on border security in the U.S. It states that reasonable people can disagree over what kind of national-security protections should exist on American borders and what sorts of screening of would-be immigrants should be done to reduce the risks of terrorist attacks. It comments on how immigration is a matter of border security. The author proposes to return to the policies under which anyone who wanted to immigrate to the country could do so as long as he or she had no serious communicable disease and is not a terrorist.
