A part of the premise for the liberal left claiming that "no human is illegal" is the belief that the land inhabited by Americans in the Southwest United States is stolen land.
We always hear the old saying, "the winners write the history," but more often than not that is not true. For example, the Mexican-American War, despite what we have been told, was not a war of American expansionism. In truth, it was a war of liberation.
In 1824, the Mexican government wrote a constitution based on ours, hoping that Mexico would be able to throw off the attitude of Roman authoritarianism, and instead adopt the concept of Saxon liberty. They even set up States in Mexico, in the hope of being more like the United States. However, the drive for liberty was short-lived when a blood-thirsty dictator by the name of Santa Anna arose. He tore up the constitution, and began a campaign of killing anyone who stood against him, including those who stood in favor of Mexico's 1824 constitution.
The drive for open borders, of course, has more to do with globalism than it does Mexican claims that the Southwest United States is stolen land. The globalists wish to erase borders, and dissolve national sovereignty so that the people of the world can fall under a united global system. What they don't tell you is that it is all based on Marxist principles, and totalitarian expectations. The Democrats also want open borders because they have erroneously convinced people they are the party of the poor and the needy, even though all of their policies create poverty, and work to benefit the wealthy and powerful (who agree with them politically).
From my point of view, it is as simple as protecting our home. We lock the doors of our homes not because we hate everyone on the outside, but because we love everyone on the inside. Even when we are home we don't just throw our door open and allow anybody to walk right in. We look through the eye-hole, or peek around the corner of the door with it only cracked open, in order to identify and vet the person at the door before letting them in.
As for the kids in cages accusation, that happened during the Obama administration, it is not happening during the Trump presidency. I can't believe the Democrat faithful are so gullible that they believe that whopper.
