Nah, just childish insults. I guess everybody's able to learn so perhaps he wisened up a bit since he sent yours.
Nah you and Parnell are still prize plumbs, gotta laugh at your little debate about me here, I must have touched a nerve. Still with your dull lives i guess you need something else to blame for your misery.

They're covered by legislation and best practice procedures. Identification of a passenger wishing to enter the US is carried out repeatedly from the initial booking process, through to visa application or the Visa Waiver programme, and to the final flight manifest. At any point in that process, the US can refuse entry to a passenger.
Indeed, those data are used as a filter for negatives, to weed out unwelcome individuals. But they're not seen as proof of identity.

It's not proof, but its evidence that needs to considered in establishing the identity of the person.

Same as your credit cxrd or your IP address can be used as evidence if you are suspected of illegal activity.
Certainly, no objection there.

But according to Poland's own web site they have refugees from these predominant Muslim countries; Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Syria, Turkey and Iraq?

Surely he was not lying?

...and your point is? That I used the wrong word. Should I have said tete-a-tete? What does it matter, many people on this forum are practically illiterate. A pair of whom are on this very thread.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

I think the point is Urs and I can disagree about a whole lot - and we do - but we don't resort to unsolicited insulting PMs and trolling.

There is little doubt Poland has had far more success with integrating Ukrainian refugees than any Western country has had with integrating MENA candidates.

What the Polish MP actually said:

"If you're asking me about Muslims illegally immigrating then none, not even one will come to Poland, not even one if it's illegal"

We could start serially groaning each other instead. There must be something one gets out of it, or it wouldn't be done I figure.

The intention is a good one, but what exactly will that achieve?

A child tells the securoty officer he / she believes they are headed for a forced marriage.

The parents deny this.

Are they going to clap anybody in prison or even prevent them from flying because a child is making an allegation against their parents?

Nobody gets "clapped in prison"

They'll be treated in the same way any other suspicious departure is dealt with (custody cases, etc.).

Both parties questioned and if it seems the kid is just a drama llama with no substance to her claim then presumably they'll be free to travel.

Often people will arrive at an airport an hour or even less before departure. That's not much time to check up on any allegations, create a risk profile or seek a professional opinion. And then it's just a security rent-a-cop's gut decison. And we all know that the average IQ at airport security is not exactly nobel-prize worthy. And if a family misses a flight because a rent-a-plod was duped by an attention seeking child, the negative outfall of that is not something they would want to deal with. The family might run to the press and allege they made them miss the flight for racist reasons or something and then the heat is 100% on the security guy. So in case of doubt, security will probably shut their eyes and look the other way.

Something like this needs way more manpower, training, infrastructure etc if it is to be effective. and that means spending a lot of money, something the UK is very reluctant to do these days.
