I'm aware of most of Europe sending their waste to the US. France doesn't send their waste here. They dump it in the ocean. :-( To be fair, France has some sort of reprocessing of spent fuel, so it is not quite as toxic.

The Farallon Island just off the coast from San Francisco used to be a nuclear dumping ground. The containers are now starting to leak.

In engineering, there is no such thing as perfection. All you can do is reduce risk to an acceptable level, but the acceptable level is determined by politicians, hopfully using good scientific data.

Yucca will be a political decision. The goal for Nevada is to stall the process until a friendlier administration is in charge.
