Border control

Reader comment on item: American Border Secrets

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Apr 26, 2005 at 11:47

It is time to get tough on immigration. I am talking about both legal and illegal immigration.

With illegal immigration, there is absolutely no excuse to let undocumented people enter the country, be it in North America or in Europe.

As far as legal immigration is concerned, it is time to give fewer VISAs.

Moreover, if American or European citizens go fighting for Islamist organizations, we can refuse to let them in again.

I have been preaching this for months now. What is the point of America spending billions of US$ to send troops to Iraq, if you cannot even control your own borders?

Then, so many Islamists are illegal immigrants and it is time to stop illegal immigration.

In any case, and I have said this before, illegal immigrants could carry nuclear weapons into America through the Mexican border.

In Europe, it is even worse. Illegal and legal immigration are putting Europe at risk. The Madrid bombers were illegal immigrants.

It is time to reform immigration, be it legal or illegal. It is time to refuse entry to Americans and Europeans who get involved with Islamist groups.
