Stop evading the question.  To which country were you referring when you said

I told you that I consider all earth to be my home, that means I don't quite respect the borders some wacko with a superiority complex drew on a paper.

The UK is obligated to offer me a home instead of the one their weapons burn, Boris wants to sell weapons that ruin my home and get away with it.

RE: What do you think about the immigration crisis?
So you're one of those 'sovereign people'?
Are you a member of the EU? I thought you were Turkish and thus it was Brussels that slammed the door in your face.
Though not to worry, I suspect Putin has designs on the Bosphorus so your ability to go somewhere else may yet increase. Provided you survive the 'adjustment in administration' of course.
As for India it was Muhammad Ali Jinnah who pushed for partition and thus the division along religious lines against Britain's and Gandhi's intention to retain a unified state.
I don't expect you accept any of that, the propaganda is obviously well bedded in.

No new immigration laws have been enacted under Boris Johnson.  What are you on about?

He wants to push "Australia based system", and I read that European students and college-staffs already began to move out of the UK

Or that immigration would somehow destroy our economy (ironically, those same people talk also that emmigration will destroy our economy). And, last but not the least, that it's important to protect the borders of the European Union so that we get into the Schengen "free-movement and free-trade" (if you ask me, it's neither of those things) zone.

Then I'd have to say that's a bit ignorant and close-minded. If we should be afraid of refugees potentially being terrorists, then I suppose we should also be afraid of any immigrant, legal or otherwise, potentially being a terrorist or criminal of some kind. Hell, at that rate, you might as well suspect any and everyone of being a terrorist or criminal. Though, I suppose that's how a lot of people in law enforcement think. Must be a shitty way to live to constantly be paranoid of everyone around you.

What I don't understand about people who think refugees are potential terrorists is, why do these people believe terrorists would enter the country that way? Is it some grand conspiracy just to get a few terrorists into a region, mixed in with, let's say, 5,000 normal civilians? Or do they just believe that, out of 5,000 refugees from a Muslim country, that some of them must be terrorists? I'm not sure which line of thinking is more stupid.

Mind you, Islamic extremists are far common than a lot of misguided, or, at times, willfully ignorant, liberals would have you think, but they're certainly not as plentiful as a lot of misguided, or, at times, willfully ignorant, conservatives would have you think. In the grand scheme of things, Islamic extremists are certainly not common. They're actually pretty damn rare when you consider how many Muslims there are in the world.

So, yeah, denying refugees out of fear of some of them potentially being terrorists is pretty fucking ignorant. Then again, would I choose to give shelter to a group of homeless people that showed up at my front door in the middle of the night? Probably not, because it isn't my fucking problem. Obviously, the situations are ridiculously different, but guess what? I'd respect people a lot more if they simply said, "Hey, we don't want refugees here because they're not our problem."

But, that's clearly not the issue is it? It's often fueled by racism and/or Islamophobia.
If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the Earth.

Colleges/universities are looking towards Asia and Africa for foreign students as we won't be part of the ERASMUS scheme. Though this doesn't have any obvious relationship to arms deals/immigration status or imply any obligation to buy new homes.

Ok, so we've moved from want Johnson hasn't done to what he wants to do.

If you're in the EU, you've got another ten months to move to the UK.  Get cracking.
