On the other hand, many conservatives also believe the federal government has grown dangerously large and powerful. Many believe that President Obama is a dictator.
Given the latter beliefs and given that a closed border guarded by vigilantes like Sean Hannity or legitimate border patrol agents can keep people in as well as keep people out, why would conservatives want to close off an avenue of escape from a dictatorial regime? Creating such a situation doesn't seem conservative. It might even be less prudent than letting Sean Hannity on the river with a gun.
