When people protest to demand open borders, I wonder if they've thought the idea through all the way. I don't see how economically it can work, but I'm willing to debate it with anyone who can show how it's beneficial to both sides - anyone ?

With all due respect, what you are saying is fundamentally flawed. Most terrorists are already within our country; they are not primarily coming from foreign nations. Largest mass murder was from an American born radicalized in US.
McVeigh and Nichols is the largest bomb, 168 killed and 500+ injured. The first modern terrorist bombing is 7th worst (World Trade Center garage) with 6 killed and 1000+ injured. Then the Boston Marathon is the 10th, with 3 killed and 100+ injured.
Dicesi - Yes, we have a lot of home grown terrorists here. That doesn't mitigate the need for border security to keep foreign terrorist operatives out. Besides, we do have foreign operatives here as well; they're waiting for the moments to strike.
