On his nationally syndicated radio talk show “The Mark Levin Show” on Thursday night, host and American lawyer Mark Levin said, “No civil society can survive open borders.”

“No civil society can survive open borders,” Mark Levin stated. “None has. None will. We’re a nation-state. We have borders. Borders are to be respected by foreigners. If foreigners want to visit our country, they need permission. If they want to come here permanently, they need permission. If they want to be citizens, they need permission.”

Levin’s remarks came after President Donald Trump announced his intention to sign an executive order ending birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants.

Below is a transcript of Levin’s remarks from his show on Thursday:

“Ladies and gentlemen, you’re on the right side of history. No civil society can survive open borders. None has. None will. We’re a nation-state. We have borders. Borders are to be respected by foreigners. If foreigners want to visit our country, they need permission. If they want to come here permanently, they need permission. If they want to be citizens, they need permission.

“That’s the way it works, except if you want to destroy America from within, if you don’t believe in the Constitution, if you want rule by judges, if you want to trash law and order, police, if you want to weaken our military.

“This is the poison from within that Lincoln talked about, that Joseph Story talked about, that Jefferson talked about, and so many have talked about. That is, if this nation is to fall, it will fall from within, much like Rome did, much like Athens did.

“A big strong nation, the greatest economy on the face of the earth, the greatest military on the face of the earth; nobody can defeat us but ourselves.”
