Whom do borders define?

Overheard during the election campaign: “A country without borders is not a country.” Now, what assumptions underlie that statement? That who we keep out defines who we include? Is it possible that who we include defines who we are as well or better? A different assumption has ruled history: the person who has the largest boundaries is the strongest, most important. Ultimately then the goal would be to have everything—no boundaries, no limits.
