    WOTQ — What are your views about countries having boarders?

    Cameron King, Theatre Major, Laney College

    Well, ideally no. For ideal cooperation between people in the world there should not be borders. There should be a universal language, and a universal culture.

    Katie Graham, Laney College History professor

    I’m for countries having borders, because a nation has to have some kind of understanding of who its population is so it can take care of its population.

    Corey Hollis, African American Studies, Laney College

    I don’t think that countries need to have borders. Borders never existed in the beginning. I feel like it’s just a territorial thing that creates division and war.

    Meghan Garret, Nursing Major, Laney College

    In certain countries it should be regulated, because of politics not because of people. Let’s say, you didn’t have a border between Syria and Israel, it would be a mess.

    Calvin Moore, Mechanical Engineering, Laney College

    We really have to look at who is coming across, the new border reforms are allowing in more immigrants, and there are refugees in countries that really need our help.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
