Yesterday Sally Kohn said that anybody who claims that wanting to decriminalize border crossings is the same thing as supporting open borders is “fanning fear and hate.” In similar comments, presidential candidate Julian Castro said this about claims Dems want “open borders”:

Hey, are you going to believe Castro or your lying eyes and ears?
1. You don’t want a wall
2. You don’t want to detain crossers
3. You want amnesty for everyone here
4. You don’t want any deportations https://t.co/Yh10iAwVuh

Yeah, that sounds pretty much like “open borders,” right?
Just last year, then-deputy chair of the DNC, Keith Ellison, said national borders create “injustice.” Ellison’s also been spotted an “I don’t believe in borders” shirt, but that must be part of the right-wing talking points as well, according to Castro.
