First year medical students at UCLA's medical school were allegedly assigned readings from activists and educators calling for the abolition of borders, according to a medical transparency group.
Do No Harm said the readings were assigned in the required course, "Structural Racism and Health Equity." Copies of the documents were shared with National Review on Thursday.
In one reading from a scholarly paper entitled, "Beyond border health: Infrastructural violence and the health of border abolition," the authors call for a "no borders system that privileges liberatory solidarity with migrants."
The authors blame health disparities among migrants on border enforcement and call for abolition of borders as a "medical intervention" to solve this problem.
"To undo rather than to mitigate the effects of existing infrastructure, border health advocates must broaden their gaze to embrace a framework that is global, shaken free from the constraints imposed by violent borders and traditional professional practice. Rather than acquiesce to the idea of borders as fixed and thus focus interventions on mitigating their harms, we must think about the medical necessity for abolition," they argue.
Another required reading directs students to a 2021 interview in The Guardian with Canadian immigration activist Harsha Walia, who also calls for the abolition of borders.
As in the first reading, Walia says mass migration is due to factors like colonialism and U.S. imperialism. She argues that there is no "border crisis" in the United States or anywhere else.
"Instead, there are the ‘actual crises’ that drive mass migration – such as capitalism, war and the climate emergency..”

Note to self: Don’t go to any doctors who graduated from UCLA.
I’d be OK with tomorrows headline that reads “UCLA Medical School burned to the ground overnight”
Fighting fires is a white patriarchal activity.
Since it’s a medical school, maybe they can explain how once eradicated diseases are making their way here now.
Good thing open borders do no harm. Well, there’s that fentanyl deaths situation...and child sex trafficking..not to mention it allows terrorist from around the globe to slio into our country..as well undermines are sovereignty..but other than that what’s the harm?
Why are medical students worried about borders?
They need more business?
Start with the alleged border between Russia and Ukraine? /snicker
Theese a$$clowns obviously don’t realize or understand that there is NO COUNTRY that will come to the aid of the US as the lefturds continue to kill it off.
There is no saving America if we don’t save ourselves.
They will love it when they have to treat “migrants” and not get paid.
Guess the school left that part out.
Apathetic Americans huddle in the center of the arena and allow themselves to be eaten by the lions
The rot in the nation may have started at the head but it has progressed well into the body.
Changing a president and a few hundred bureaucrats in Washington isn’t going to end the national idiocy in one four year term but it may well be a start in that direction.
Clear out the classrooms, bring in cots...and fill the rooms with illegals.
Yeah, the mothers and fathers of all the kids murdered by illegal aliens, and the kids of parents who were murdered by illegal aliens, and the fsmi,ies of those who have died of drugs brought over by illegals, and those who,have contracted desdly diseases that were once wiped out in the us, and the vict8ms of,violent crimes committed by illegal aliens all agree- its “just an imagined crisis”
All of the following is just nothing more than an “imagined crisis”
Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants
In recent Testimony of District Attorney John M. Morganelli before the House Subcommittee on immigration, Border, Security and Claims he stated:
“Unfortunately, the majority of illegal aliens who are here are engaged in criminal activity. Identity theft, use of fraudulent social security numbers and green cards, tax evasion, driving without licenses represent some of the crimes that are engaged in by the majority of illegal aliens on a daily basis merely to maintain and hide their illegal status.
In addition, violent crime and drug distribution and possession is also prevalent among illegal aliens. Over 25% of today’s federal prison population are illegal aliens. In some areas of the country, 12% of felonies, 25% of burglaries and 34% of thefts are committed by illegal aliens.”
•In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
•There are currently over 400,000 unaccounted for illegal alien criminals with outstanding deportation orders. At least one fourth of these are hard core criminals.
•80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.
•Illegal aliens are involved in criminal activities at a rate that is 2-5 times their representative proportion of the population.
•In 1980, our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities at a cost of about $6.8 billion per year.
•At least 4.5 million pounds of cocaine with a street value of at least $72 billion is smuggled across the southern border every year. ..
•56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
•Illegal aliens charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.
•Illegal aliens commit between 700,000 to 1,289,000 or more crimes per year.
•Illegal aliens commit at least 2,158 murders each year – a number that represents three times greater participation than their proportion of the population.
•Illegal alien sexual predators commit an estimated 130,909 sexual crimes each year.
•There may be as many as 240,000 illegal alien sex offenders circulating throughout America. Based on studies, they will commit an average of 8 sex crimes per perpetrator before being caught.
•Nearly 63% of illegal alien sex offenders had been deported on another offense prior to committing the sex crime.
•Only 2% of the illegal alien sex offenders in one study had no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally.
•In Operation Predator, ICE arrested and deported 6,085 illegal alien pedophiles. Some studies suggest each pedophile molests average of 148 children. If so, that could be as many as 900,580 victims.
•Nobody knows how big the Sex Slave problem is but it is enormous.
•The very brutal MS-13 gang has over 15,000 members and associates in at least 115 different cliques in 33 states.
•The overall financial impact of illegal alien crimes is estimated at between $14.4 and $81 billion or more per year. Factor in the crime as a result of the cocaine and other drugs being smuggled in and the number may reach $150 billion per year.
Where does Rubio come off berating Trump for citing FACTS?
[[Congressman Steve King (R-IA) estimates that illegal alien drunk drivers kill 13 Americans every day — that’s a death toll of 4,745 per year.
The 23 percent criminal traffic offenders figure is only part of the overall picture. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, another 23 percent, more than 43,000 illegal aliens, were convicted of drug offenses. The violent crime category of assault, robbery, sexual assault, and family offenses comes to 12 percent. The non-violent crime grouping of larceny, fraud, and burglary totaled seven percent, and on the list goes — equaling 100 percent of illegal aliens who have been through the criminal justice system and inflicted thousands to millions in cost per alien on the system, for issues having nothing to do with their illegal entry into the country]]
Refugee crises are driven by episodic factors like war or natural disasters. The underlying idea in refugee situations is that they are temporary and that most refugees will eventually go home. That doesn't always happen in practice, but it's always the default position.
What is happening now is not a refugee crisis. It is mass migration driven by mass flight from failed states. Failed states are caused by failed cultures. We can all sympathize with individuals fleeing from West Crapistan, looking for a better life elsewhere. But there are limits to what host nations can absorb -- and we are not only massively exceeding those limits; we are importing millions of people from failed cultures into a desperately sick society in which our own dominant elites, and most of the schools, insist that all cultures are equal and that the norms of successful cultures must be dismantled to make refugees from failed cultures feel at home.
A medical school that lies about this is par for the course. Perhaps its graduates should be conscripted into a global health service and assigned to 20 years of service in the failed states valorized in their mythology.
Good point most if not all has never had a shot for anything.
