You response was interesting. I had not really considered that people who support Trump on the border insanity would consider this as you presented. It might be helpful to you to know that what you describe has a philosophical name, it’s called a ‘category mistake’. You are confusing a personal home and a region of this planet. While both can be described at ‘home’ they are in no way similar.

Most importantly, while one can own, in some form, one’s own place of residence even a group of people do not own the planet. Nation states were created on the foundation of monarchy and empire to do something like that but those are now in full decline. They simply no longer make sense.

All sentient beings have the same rights to this planet. That is the foundation of the world that is emerging around us.

I’ve given you a link to understand ‘category mistake’ a little better.
