    [OOC] Yes! In several countries, consider Israel, Palestine, India, South Korea etc, opening the border might lead to cross-border terrorism, smuggling and worse

    Austria believes border control is not unfair by any means, and saying so can only be considered a product of ignorance. Territorial assurance is a vital part of international harmony.

    Sorry the wording of your question is a little confusing.

    Botswana and Turkey, thinks cross border searches should be thorough, otherwise terrorist attacks and smuggling can occur willingly, maybe a little bit of profiling can help speed the process.

    I am sorry. The question was stemming form the Green view of borders being unjust as we are all humans in the world and no one has a right to cordon off a little section of the world calling it theirs. The obvious downside to this is if we follow the same logic, property insofar as land or houses will have to go.

    Oh ok, I understand, in that case, Botswana believes an open country is a more transparent nation however certain individuals need to kept out for the nation's economic and political stability.

    Canada says no. It only shares a land border with the US, but it is successfully managed and gives anybody with enough monetary stability and a clean crime record the opportunity to come here and live a higher quality of life. Nevertheless, Canada would not let in criminals purely for the protection of its people. Therefore, having borders is probably better for the structured majority rather than not having borders for the benefit of the anarchist minority.

    Mexico, as much as it would love open access to the US, agrees with Canada's comments. Our colonial history involved having no borders at one point and that caused a lot of disruption.

    Being a green I do belive boarders are archaic and abhorrent
