One good thing in all this mess. The Open Borders plank in the DNC's platform has broken. Everyone - even millennials - now understands what border crossings do for everyone. If you believe that current immigration or refugee acceptance is inadequate, you now advocate for higher quotas and more staff NOT for Open Borders. It literally changed in one week.
The Open Borders argument always ignored all the other things border crossings do, in addition to blocking the spread of human diseases. Stopping human trafficking, drug smuggling, other smuggling, cross-border movement of criminal fugitives, and stopping the spread of plant/crop diseases. All ignored in favor of an irrational emotional argument that was and is fundamentally wrong.
It makes no sense to allow hundreds of thousands of people to cross the border who have no vaccination for common diseases while blocking children from school for lacking one vaccination. And it's pretty unfair too. Inconsistency is also injustice.
