during the European migrant crisis, a result of open borders]] Open borders is the mistaken belief, often politically motivated, that freedom of movement from one country into another is a basic human right. It is a radical notion that national boundaries are unjust and that migrants of any other culture should be embraced. Immigration laws are to be ignored, under this view, while tolerance for foreign customs must be embraced, while integration into a new society is not observed out of respect and compassion for multicultural ethnic groups.

Open borders result in more crime. In addition, capital resources are spent on migrants, most of whom have little or no education. Jail populations swell, the health system is burdened, schools struggle to cope, law enforcement and the courts are overwhelmed. The mindset of open-borders advocates is illustrated in the May 2019 storming and occupation of a terminal at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris – the illegal migrants who occupied it chanted: “France does not belong to the French!”<ref>Multiple references:

Supporters of open borders
