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.
