Anonymous, Wilders call for an immigration stop for non-westerners is of course the airport security profiling on the national scale. The question is, is this really a radical goal as so many people say. I think it is not. It is a far more radical practice to let anybody in. My argument is that the harder it is to reverse or change a policy, the more radical it is. Obivously it is harder to get people out that were let in with an indiscriminate open immigration. With the immigration stop Wilderss wants it is quite easy to let individuals or even larger number of non-western people in with special visa. No problem with change, so not a radical measure I conclude.
