European Commission President: Don’t Worry, We’ll Never Close Our Borders

On Monday, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker offered a few words of solace to the victims of this month’s deadly terror attacks: Don’t worry! Open borders are here to stay!

Rather than reconsidering border policies, Junker waxed philosophic about the abstract appeal of the European Union, arguing that better intelligence-sharing alone can counter the wave of Islamic terrorists infiltrating refugee programs.

During the nauseating interview with France 2’s Four Truths program, Juncker blamed individual nation-states for the massive security failures plaguing Europe. We “expected a better response from member states regarding the exchange of information between police and intelligence services,” bleated the European Commission president.

While Juncker rightly identified a major obstacle in the continent’s counter-terror offensives, he failed to mention a fact that even German Chancellor Angela Merkel has already acknowledged: ISIS is exploiting the the European Union’s naive asylum policies and embedding its operatives within the hordes of migrants crossing into Europe.

The German multiculturalism experiment has “utterly failed,” confessed Merkel earlier this month before noting, “In part, the refugee flow was even used to smuggle terrorists.”

“This is one of the four fundamental freedoms of the founding Treaty of Rome. It is an inviolable principle.”

Still, Juncker stuck to his talking points, declaring that open-borders are here to stay. “This is one of the four fundamental freedoms of the founding Treaty of Rome. It is an inviolable principle,” he made clear.

The Angel of Death is knocking on Europe’s door. The knock gets louder and louder every day. Everyone can hear it except for the folks in charge of Europe, the overpaid, incompetent bureaucrats sitting in their comfortable offices in Brussels. No wonder the United Kingdom left Europe.
