Time to end the taboo about immigration

Reader comment on item: American Border Secrets

During the last 30 years, the Western world has had a taboo about immigration. You can talk about any subject you wish, just don't mention immigration.

Now that illegal immigrants play a major part in supporting Radical Islam, matters should change. They should change, but they haven't changed.

The far-left is still dominatig the discourse about immigration. Not only is it wrong to speak out about legal immigration, but it is even wrong to have an opinion about illegal immigration, as if borders were open to anybody.

As things stand, Islamists are free to go in and out any country they wish, without being checked.

The far-left has had it its own way for too long and it is time to refrom immigration. Illegal immigrants enter Europe every day and the situation in the United States is not much better.

With 1 million illegal immigrants entering Europe every year and the same amount of illegal immigrants entering the United States, the situation does not look bright.

Immigration laws should not just target Muslims and most of those who enter the United States are not Muslims.

It is just common sense to say that Western countries should take immigration a bit more seriously. Australia is already doing it and serious attempts have been made by some European countries such as Denmark, France and Italy.

Unless something is done to stop illegal immigration and reform legal immigration, the Western world will implode.

Europe is taking in virtually everything from conviced murderers to violent Muslims and Serbian killers.

The United States is taking in Algerian murderers, Colombian drug-dealers, Mexican criminals, Palestinian killers and so on and so forth.

The far-left is responsible for this. They are responsible for all the tragedies caused by illegal immigration: 9/11 and Madrid.
