the skin analogy

A post at Instapundit went thus:

WOULDN’T IT BE SIMPLER FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO DISSOLVE THE PEOPLE AND ELECT ANOTHER? Former Trump administration senior adviser Stephen Miller: Biden’s Immigration Plan Would “Erase America’s Nationhood.”
Flashback: “Labour wanted mass immigration to make UK more multicultural, says former adviser. Labour threw open Britain’s borders to mass immigration to help socially engineer a ‘truly multicultural’ country, a former Government adviser has revealed.”

The comments below the post showcased all manner of viewpoints.  I added this comment:

My go-to analogy:  human skin.  A secure border, like skin, regulates influx and outflow, keeping a reasonable, healthy equilibrium.  Remove that shield, and everything pours in unregulated, including plenty of pathogens.  So to the open-borders people, I say:  if you don't believe in secure borders, you don't believe in the need for your own skin.  Take a potato peeler and peel your skin off.  Follow your convictions and stop being hypocrites.
