Study: Border Controls Cheaper Than Mass Immigration

Restoring full passport and security checks between European Union (EU) nations would be more cost effective than allowing the migrant crisis to continue indefinitely, a German economic institute has said.

The Munich-based Ifo institute said the reinstating border controls could reduce the EU’s economic output by 0.19 to 0.47 per cent each year, equivalent to €26.65 to €65.8 billion.

However, Gabriel Felbermayr, head of Ifo, said that these costs would be “just a small part of the amount that would be caused by uncontrolled mass immigration.”

    At some time in History -this is going to down as either the ‘dumbest invasion in history or the smartest’.
    It is akin to a lottery— the jack pot is WELFARE.

    People from many different countries , migrate, rape and steal there way across many different Countries — all for $$$$$$.

    Whatever, Country is dumb enough to take them in—-they will BLEED you of your money, they will RAPE your children and they will CHANGE your Government.

    And your Politicians will tell you that you are HAPPY.

      When a Swedish politician says that 9/11 was an accident I think we’ve reached a tipping point.
