With regard to the contentious issue presently before us, one would do well to remember these lines written by the New England poet Robert Frost, once America’s poet laureate:

Before I built a wall I’d ask to know

What I was walling in or walling out,

And to whom I was like to give offence.

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,

That wants it down.
