run away to a better, safer life,
Define safer and define better. so far those are people who can afford to pay lots of money to get where they are.
They are not serving beggers as some like to think. If they are safer in a country of their choosing than in their own country or Belarus - I don't know and you don't either.
The fact remains that their presents will put at risk the safety of citizens of a country they want to go to and in the process, they would make Poland a less safer country. I don't think it is a fair trade-off. I think is lofty and cheap sentimentalism in the guise of humantarism. People who support it are irresponsible fools with no sense whatsoever.
Over one million people - that's a scale unheard of before in Europe - left Poland in the 1980s.
Well, they were kicked out for the most part either directly or indirectly by the Soviet Regime. If they were in Poland in 1989 that con at the round table wouldn't be that successful. They were not illegal they were political refugees.
By the way, those Poles went to Europe, Canada, and the USA. Legally and openly. To countries that were near and that are culturally compatible.
Those people from Syria, Iraq, and Afganistan are from Asia and 99% of them are not that compatible with European culture.
Today majority of Poles think that they don't owe anything to anybody.
Just an idea.
Hair-brained idea. That makes no sense and would solve nothing.
Quite the opposite much more people would be transferred to the border.
the best option is to build a proper wall and let in no one apart from those who would use proper channels.
