Nonsense.
My door is always open to my brother and close friends. All others must ask permission to enter.
Canada has a comparable standard of living and Canadian citizens tend to go home after their visit is finished. The same is not true of our southern neighbor.
The numbers tell the story. What percentage of illegals are from Canada and what percentage are from Mexico?
One is a good neighbor and the other is anything but a good neighbor.

The US should NOT have open borders.

Interesting to note, there were rumors that if 9/11 hadn't happened, Canada and the USA may have had virtually open borders within a few years.

No, and definitely not for Canada either.
Canada brings in many potential terrorists as immigrants.

If we didn't give them status, then they have to apply for status.

Canada would never agree to reinstating it anyway.
Those days are over.

Yes, NO OPEN BORDERS. When it is open, ANYONE can come in.

My feeling is that the crowd that wants open borders has strong ties to the crowd that wants fewer or no police and laws that are not enforced. In other words; the Mad Max fans that want to see anarchy as the game of the day. Except they still want some of us to work so we can support their sorry butts!

We should have our Marines patrolling our border instead of South Korea's border. Our Navy should be patrolling our own coasts instead of Israel's, Japans's and Saudi Arabia's. Our Air Farce should be patrolling our skies instead of Europe and Asia's.
600+ billion a year on our Military and we can't even use it to secure our own nation

Those who support and defend illegal aliens are those who hire them for profit, have ethnic ties to them or are bleeding heart liberals.

Excuse me?

Canada brings in many potential terrorists? WTF??? You've got more muslim immigrants in Dearborn than the whole of Canada. You've made no secret of your southern border being porous as a sieve for decades and done nothing whatsoever about it other than to grant them amnesty and citizenship while not knowing squat about where they came from.

Why would any self respecting terrorist go thought the aggravation of applying to Canada and go through the additional third degree process any visitor to the U.S. entering via Canada goes through when all he has to do is arrive anywhere in south America and get escorted through Mexico, hire a coyote and hike across the ineffective line in the sand to probably end up employed by a greedy American in the same freak'n 24 hour period of his feet hitting your dirt?

Need you be reminded that those who committed the worst to date terrorist act upon you, were invited in & given VISAS by YOU then given flight training on how to fly (but not to land aircraft) with nary a raised eyebrow?

Do you even know your refugee statistics and where they come from? Let me help you:

Refugee Admissions Statistics

Compare with:

Canada's refugees: Where they come from by the numbers - Canada - CBC News

Double standard is correct! It must be something in the damn water down there.

As an adjunct to the O/P...... NOPE to open borders. Who knows what, where, or who America is letting in who might want to come across into Canada.

Well, George Soros funds much of the Left; organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center, and their Blog, "Think Progress." His is a proponent of open borders, and his Open Society organization promotes the idea.

I don't agree if talking the US and Canada: both places are 1st world countries. Kinda the same thing between France, Germany and now Poland in 2016.
