The borders can be open and yet be checked. If you want to go to the UK or Ireland, two non-schengen countries, you must go through a border control. What's the problem about that apart from a little time spent on a queue?

Open unchecked borders mean rampant increase in crimes. See what happens in the Algarve, Portugal, with all the robberies happening nowadays?

I like open borders. I like checked borders as well.
