    If the country doesn't want them and they keep trying to get in, should the police be allowed to use force on them? Personally, I don't think they should but a few Wuropean politicians have advocated this:

    If a country refuses entry and someone tries to get in how is that any different to being invaded? Shoot them

    No way. People go to desperate measures to try and get a better life in the UK. Why should they get shot because of their desperation. I feel sorry for them tbh.

    No, but we need to have a way to deal with excess migration, especially when we don't know anything about these migrants, which is currently the case in Europe. Don't shoot them of course but countries should be allowed to turn them away if they can't handle it or if they feel that the migrants may pose a risk.

    No but a country shouldn't be forced to take them in, especially when they don't have the skills that we need or if we don't have any jobs for them to do.

    If they pose a direct safety risk to the officer then yes. If not, then the officers should use some other way of preventing them from getting in.

    They should be tasered and shipped back.

    Well then why can't they try and build a better life for themselves in their own countries rather than running away like cowards?

    Yes. Absolutely yes. They're breaking the law, why should they be allowed to just cross without any repercussions? If they break the law they deserve to be punished.
    So all law breakers should be shot?

    maybe because there own countries are corrupt. filled with so much war that they are used to hearing the sound of bombs dropping and people they know getting killed. good enough reason?

    Yes, look at the huge rape problem in Germany and Sweden because they took in all these migrants. It's clear that they are a risk.

    Yeah, because the people trying to get into Britain really are fleeing that deadly war going on in France at the moment.

    No, but there are far too many migrants to justify using non-violent methods. We need to put a stop to them and do it fast, and shooting them is the most effective way of accomplishing this.
    How is killing them and ultimately making their families suffer even more possibly a good solution?

    No, the war is their problem. It's their own country, if they were true patriots they would try to improve the standard of living in their own countries instead of taking advantage of our country.

    Illegal entry is specifically catered for in the convention in article 37.
    If they claim asylum, then the country is under an oblgation to investigate the validity of their claim under the 51 convention on Refugees.. Shooting them would not be the appropriate response.

    Yes but do you not think killing is ever so slightly extreme? I'd be very careful if I was you otherwise I might have to fetch my toenail clippers and teach you a thing or two!

    Attack is the best form of defence. Look at the rape crisis in Germany, the terror attacks. We are under attack.
