    Default EU open borders, time for a re think?

    It appears that criminals from across Europe and further a field are coming to Ireland because of our Justice system and the lenient way it deals with Criminals . I have seen many cases in the papers of Eastern Europeans and other foreign nationals appearing before courts on a regular basis. The question I ask is why are they not deported?

    The open borders system across Europe is a dream come true for Criminals, Smugglers and traffickers and that is not to mention the free movement of dangerous sex offenders across the EU. Is it time that we as a Country put protection of our citizens as a priority? Is it time we stopped people with serious criminal records from entering the Country? In these harsh economic times would it not make more sense to deport foreign national criminals who constantly come before the courts?

    And the biggest joke of all is that they would sail through the Garda vetting process!!!

    Complete and utter madness.

    Ireland isn't in Schengen so we don't, in theory, have open borders. What we do have is inadequate intra-police communications between the Gardai and other EU forces and a silly pretense at passport control in the airports.

    We do have open borders in reality, not that long ago a group of Polish criminals flew into shannon and went round the Munster area ram raiding pharmacys. The Irish authorities have no interest in protecting citizens.
