Glenn Reynolds: It's Little Reported in the US, But Liberal Enlightened Europe Is Talking About Walls and Immigrant Crackdowns, Too

The US media doesn't want to talk about any of this though, both because it is in ideological solidarity with the open borders movement, and is embarrassingly parochial anyway.

Europe's immigration drama has nothing to do with Donald Trump: Glenn Reynolds


Hundreds of thousands of migrants challenge EU's liberal stance on open borders.

From following the news, you'd think that immigration was strictly a U.S. problem, one brought to the fore by Donald Trump. But although Trump has certainly moved the debate to a new level here at home, other parts of the world are facing an immigration crisis that is, if anything, worse. And there are lessons in that.

...

Meanwhile, as Americans talk of a border fence, Bulgaria is building one, with razor wire and steel 12 feet high. And Slovakia is flat-out refusing to accept Muslim migrants, viewing them as dangerous and destabilizing. Migrants have massed at the Macedonian border and are creating tensions between Serbia and Hungary. Hungary is building a fence too. Norwegian politicians are suggesting that Norway should do something similar to Australia, which is sending unwelcome refugees to New Guinea or to prison....

So it's not just Trump. America, like the rest of the world, will have to decide what it wants to do about the fact that more people want to live here than we can accept. It is simple political reality that the problem canít be ignored forever.

In Clueless, Alicia Silverstone fakes her way through a debate assignment on immigration by just making up some happy-sounding nonsense about there not being any RSVP required at Party USA.


That's pretty much exactly what the political and economic masters of this country are doing -- burbling Alicia Silverstone's happy-talk nonsense, hoping no one notices it doesn't make sense.
