Might as well open your home, too.

What could go wrong with open borders?

I’m really getting tired of all this BS over immigration. I have solution — let everyone open up their homes, leaving it unlocked and unobserved and bring in an immigrant family or two. Provide them with food and shelter and add them to your health insurance plan. Let them have the freedom to come and go as they please and do whatever with their habits dictate, being good or bad. Some of the bad may have some influence on your family, like drug use, sex trafficking, etc. The good being that they just might help do things around the house. If you have a 2-bedroom home, you could house 2 more families. You understand that is how they live in their home country. The best part of this, you won’t have to lock up your home, car or business.

Citizens of Europe and the Scandinavian countries tried this but, it does not seem to be working out. Maybe we could show them how it’s done properly. They have super high taxes over there and it still seems not enough. France raised their taxes on its citizens and look what is happening now.

With open borders, open homes, what could go wrong.
