154. thanks
Thanks for reading the material. That is all I ask.

I have not advocated anything like this - "you seem to want to do away with it." Can't argue a point I didn't and wouldn't make. I agree that "the immigration authority needs serious reform" and have not said anything inconsistent with that.

Are you making an analogy between the purpose of the immigration service and weapons of war? That suggests that you think the purpose of the immigration service is to wage war against someone.

Here is a better analogy - if the torpedoes WERE detonating, in port, and killing civilians and crews, then yes, I would advocate a suspension of the use of those torpedoes. Wouldn't you? That would not prevent building a better torpedo. Would people then say "OMG you are advocating that we don't have torpedoes and be defenseless against the German subs!!!" That is analogous to the "OMG you are advocating totally open boarders and to let us be overrun and let terrorists and criminals have their way with us!!!"
