Yep. It satisfies most of the requirements for bad legislation.
It doesn’t address the problem
It moves or expands the problem elsewhere
It restricts the freedoms of honest citizens
It criminalizes normal activity
It provides loopholes for the actual criminals
It creates, expands or further empowers bureaucracy
It gives congress the warm fuzzy feeeeeeeling that they are doing something

how life would have been different today if that had been true.
It is very odd, since he was heading for Rome anyway.
Once in Rome, he could go wherever he wanted in the EU with a valid passport.
Could have taken a train to Geneva.
Could simply have requested asylum in Rome.

No Pelosi. No Reid. No Boxer. No Jackson-Lee. No ____.

I totally agree .. it was the families of those in the air who blew the whistle.
I couldn’t see any problem with it, but I had heard they were trying to stop it for some irrational reason (it was quite a while ago that I heard the rumblings).
The Swiss aren’t in EU. Their asylum laws are different and for some reason he preferred them.
Switzerland just had a referendum about immigrants...
Freepers knew that, but did the perp? He may have been acting on outdated beliefs.
He must had suffered horribly with dial-up internet

Right, it’s the Schengen Area, actually. I get the two mixed up.
I miss those border posts...”Vous etes Americaine, monsieur? Your papairs, s’il vous plait!” Now, crossing borders has about all the quaint charm of going from Texas to Oklahoma! ;)
“Post 9-11-01 rules: Fight back or get shot down.”
That day changed everything.
Votre papairs, sil vous plait!
