Why does the government need to know?
If you're in a socialist society, where the government hands out all the cookies, then it's important to know the identities of all the
individuals--e.g. former Soviet Union-- who have the right to get those cookies.
But, if you're in a capitalist society, where the people have to "work" for cash, and use that cash to pay for the cookies, then the identities of
the individuals don't matter, because there are no free cookies.
If a man doesn't work he can't buy cookies, so if he doesn't belong there, he leaves, since his real family is in another land, and that is his
ultimate support network. There's no need for a law to push him out. His "hunger" will do it.
There's no need for border walls at all. Europe has torn down all their walls, from the old East-West Berlin wall, to the old Soviet Union wall, to
the European Union removing all walls between nations. Walls are not needed.
So, why is America building walls, and writing silly draconian laws, at a time when the rest of the world is going the other way?
It suggests that Americans are not working.
Americans no longer want to work.
Americans want every thing to be free. So, they need walls to keep others from coming in and taking those free cookies also. Americans are annoyed
that other people are walking the land and eating their cookies.
But, it's not their cookies. They haven't worked for it. They don't want to work for it. They just want somebody to blame.
So they write a law.
And they build a wall.
But that can't solve the problem. Because the Mexicans aren't the real problem. They are working for those cookies. However, they are an easy
target, to deflect the blame, to be able to say its them and not me.
