    If you ask many in Europe now, they will tell you they are having second thoughts on the agreement, the idea of the EU, and transferring their currency to the Euro. Of course there is absolutely no comparison for their border controls to those of the U.S.

    So your answer would be "no" ... And your initial assertion was just bullshit convenient enough for you to use in futile attempts to make a point ... :thup:

    My answer would be no? How the fuck do you get that out of what I said?

    You cannot have it both ways.

    You suggest that the Schengen Agreement and globalization are what aid illegal activity (to include illegal weapons transport).
    The Schengen Agreement loosens border restrictions and aids immigration into and migration throughout the EU.

    There isn't a question as to whether or not we already have a porous border and a multitude of illegal immigrants.
    So ... if unchecked border crossings and open immigration are at fault ... It doesn't matter how different the EU and the US are ... They need to be addressed.

    I gathered you were against the idea of tighter border controls and limited immigration/migration ... When you suggested our controls were better than the EU.
    Whether or not ours are better ... We still suffer the same penetrations and unchecked crossings.

    In turn ... if you do think we should have tighter border control and limited immigration/migration ... At least that is a step in the right direction.

    No, I have no problem with Good border protection, but even with what we have, it is not even close to as porous as those in the EU. A lot of people don't even realize just how much border protection we really have... they presume it is extremely porous because that's a political talking point that politicians repeat over and over to get elected.

    I don't presume anything ... I have been to border countless times.
    I also know that the illegal immigration problem isn't a fairytale either ... And is more valid than any political nonsense ... :thup:

    Like how even without a border wall, all of a sudden under Trump the government is releasing these huge numbers that illegal immigration is down like 90%? Why do we need a border wall anymore then?

    If you've been through border check points so often, have you seen the dogs walking around sniffing for bombs and drugs? How about the cameras doing facial recognition on all the visitors?

    Did you know that the U.S. has even put in changes for U.S. citizens to return to the U.S.?

    The illegal immigrants usually don't go through border crossings ... But you can see them crossing wherever else they can find a hole.

    I just said... quoting what several posts have been posted on this forum, since Trump has become President illegal immigrants are down like 90%. That's even without having a border wall, so why do we still need a border wall? (Sorry it is actually 76%)

    Illegal immigration across southwest border down 70 percent under Trump


    You sure have a problem delineating between comments. I even leave a big space between each statement to try and help you out...

    Well ... I gather you are willing to accept President Trump's assessment of the situation.
    I am still skeptical ... But glad you feel comfortable President Trump is keeping you safe ... :thup:
