That is an awful way of saying it. What you are advocating is total globalization. A total lack of regulating migrations would be catastrophic for any country. Wages will plummet ..living conditions and standards will drop...the rich will exploit the poor even worse than now. Give your head a shake. And do not even start to talk about crime spikes and drug deaths. You are niave and uncaring to go down this road. You. are being used for political hit points and should be ashamed.

Don't even need to listen to this - ILLEGAL immigrants should go through a port of entry. You don't get luxury treatment for committing illegal acts and even putting your children in great danger because you didn't want to emigrate legally so that you could save money and time for example. AOC lied about conditions in dentention centres, which by the way are temporary places for the illegal immigrants, she also continues to brainwash people on climate change among many other issues.
