I agree that it shouldn't be 'open slather', but I'll also add that if we had a 'stop the boats at all costs' policy in the early 70's, our country would have been robbed of a generation of hard working immigrants looking for a safe place to call home. The difference today seems to be based on religious grounds, and that is certainly xenophobic (unless you call casting a net and calling all the catch 'sharks' reasonable)
