If the Egyptians see merit in protecting their borders with supposed countrymen, then why can’t we protect our borders against admitted foreigners?
We let in the wrong ones (Muslims, whether from the ME or Europe) for the wrong reasons(”family reunion”) and keep out the good ones or the hard-working ones (such as Latin Americans...a large part of whose legal quota was taken by Obama immediately after his inauguration and reassigned to to Muslims).
The places where immigration falls down are not so much the borders, but the ports of entry, such as JFK or any large international airport, where all the wrong people are admitted LEGALLY.

Those are just countrymen you haven’t met yet...
