"They will be required to provide personal details and information about their recent movements in order to enter the EU" so what?

when i left ireland they asked background info of job, recent movements, and criminal history every single person getting on a flight. i don’t mind this and don’t understand it as a huge invasion of privacy. people who do nothing wrong have nothing to fear from this system. i’m 3/4 white and 1/4 asian with tan/brown skin and white features (mostly) so i could even face profiling racism if it did exist. it’s not a perfect system to help prevent that, but it was a nice added level of security that i liked. a person who is mentally unstable could be caught and it took like 2 minutes per person or family which added no time since we were waiting in line for luggage check anyway
