Do we need Border Patrols,official crossing points, passports or visas? Let's open the borders &let everyone roam like free range chickens.

Not just the USA and our neighbors but to be fair all countries in the world. Wouldn't that be cozy? Non racist too! Anybody against this idea? Illegal immigration would become an oxymoron.

as nice and noble your idea is, and as much as I hate to say it, we need the borders and the official crossing points to keep order. Without a clear track of where people are coming and going we cannot measure the resources that we have and people would suffer from that. For example. lets say that the U.S and Canada are suffering from horrible subzero temperatures and the crops and animals perished under those conditions, if we didn't have borders they could just pack up and move to mexico or central america. By doing that the food and resources available in mexico become scarce and people would become violent and chaos would start to reign.

With Borders the mexican government would know how many people it can let cross before the food supply and resources become scarce. Is the same thing in the US. I agree that is not fair how they treat Illegal immigrants, and I believe illegal immigrants have a hard time in their original country and that is why they move to the US to find a better life, but crossing illegally means that they don't get the same rights as everyone else, which is bad enough on itself and that the government can't keep track of how many are immigrating to the US or what diseases they could bring over, or acquire in the US and bring back to their country of Origin. Is just not good for everyone if there is not order.

So who would pay for all the necessities of life for all these free-roaming people?

Hopefully they won't continuously roam but will take the care and time to provide for their needs themselves.
