No Flight Into Egypt

Egypt in particular worries that Gaza refugees might flood across its border if the Israelis increase their offensive in Gaza.
In fact, when Palestinians blasted a hole in the fence, they lined up security officers to prevent Gazans from crossing over.

These are people who certainly have legitimate reasons to flee, speak the same language, practice the same religion, and are part of the great cause that occupies so much bandwidth in Egyptian media. And they worry that Gazans will flood across the border!

Children: compare and contrast Egypt's border control involving its fellow Arabs, with America's border policy. 500 words. No time limit. Open book. Ready, go!
