Actually the EU has many very porous borders. More than a million economic migrants have walked through them with ease.
All borders are porous to some degree, even East Germans managed to get to the west. I hear today that the Hong Kong / China border is very porous, and I know that the Turkish / Bulgarian one is likewise - and Donald Trump isn't happy with the colander that is the US / Mexican border.

The issue for the EU is primarily trade in goods, and most borders in 1st world countries are pretty tight in that regard, though e-commerce (Amazan, Eday etc) is making them somewhat less so.
