Borders and immigration: a view from Romania

Disclaimers and such things: I thought for a good while about writing some thoughts on this issue. I see it as quite thorny and not as black and white as most people present it, irrespective of sides. Of course calling things complex or not black and white is usually a bullshit non-argument.
