Poland has been EU member sine 2004, so their border is open.

Don't believe everything you read in Twitter.

I did. It is complete nonsense. Their border is open to other EU countries so anyone can enter as their wish.

Polish MP Dominik Tarczynski of the ruling Law and Justice Party schooled a BBC host on the threat of refugees and turned her into a bumbling fool.

Tarczynski is asked by a BBC host why Poland is not honoring their agreement to take in refugees.“Well, basically because people who voted for us they said no,” Tarczynski stated matter-of-factly. “The previous government had this agreement and now Polish people said no, we don’t want to have this threat in Poland … and we have to respect them.”
“We have to remember that this agreement was signed by the previous government and now the situation in Poland is completely changed,” he said. “We have to listen to our people.”

OK, Poland makes a big effort to block immigrants or refugees from outside of Europe. Still, lots of immigrants have arrived from next door Ukraine, whose economy has been trashed for years. Not shocking, since Ukraine and Poland have some historical and cultural ties.

I like Poland. It is not far from my place in eastern Germany, and I've been there many times. The Tatra Mountains in southern Poland are not as tall or famous as the Alps, but they are a wonderful vacation area, less crowded at a fraction of the cost of an Alpine visit.

It seems ironic that Poland is blocking most non-EU immigration, since so many from Poland have emigrated to other countries in the EU looking for better jobs or opportunities. Go to any construction site here in Leipzig (Germany) and you will find laborers from many countries to the east, especially Poland. Same story for cities all around western & northern Europe, especially UK. Poland in not an economic powerhouse and salaries for similar jobs are lower there than here in the eastern part of Germany (which are 10-20 percent less than in the western part of Germany). On the other hand, Poland looks like it is making some economic progress. It seems like things are getting better, not worse economically. But that is just what I see as a visitor, not as someone who has lived there.

There is a trade-off with Poland's effort to block all immigrants from outside the EU. It sounds like they don't want anyone who does not share their ethnic, religious or cultural standards. They can scare off outside investment or multi-national business ventures in Poland. What company from Asia, Middle East of even the US would want to set up a regional operations center or technical center in Poland. What if employees they brought in from the home country or other countries to manage or oversee key positions were treated like second or third tier people while living in Poland? It could scare off people with scarce or needed talents from wanting to move to Poland from other countries. That reduces Poland's ability to participate in the global economy, and they will lose more of their own residents, many with valuable skills, to other countries. It is a trade-off between the domestic culture and the global economy, and it is still not clear how this will play out in the next decade or two.

Poland probably watched the terror attacks in Germany, Belgium, and the UK and said "no thank you".

If that truly happened then why are there 2 million Poles and growing in England. With 900,000 of those Poles born in Poland and moving there in the last 17 years? If the Poles didn't want to be like Sweden or the U.K,why did so many of them immigrate to the multicultural hellhole to the point that the biggest ethnicity outside of English/Scottish/Irish/Welsh in the whole U.K. is Poles. If the terror attack scared them so much why do poles live in the most multicultural parts of London, in parts of London that are 27% Muslim, you'll find lots of Polish people as well like Ponders End/Enfield area.

Simple. Poland is an overwhelmingly Christian country and wants to remain that way. In fact, back during the Cold War, I believe that the Polish military was the only one out of the Warsaw Pact to have chaplains.
