Illegal vs Legal Immigration Is A Global Issue

Immigration is the international movement of people into a destination country of which they are not natives. Research suggests that migration is beneficial both to the receiving and sending countries. The world has become increasingly global and interconnected in the past 10-15 years. Immigration on an average has positive economic effects on the native population. But it is mixed as low-skilled immigration adversely affects low-skilled natives.

Economic conditions rise only when the local economy is strong enough to accommodate the influx of new people. International migrants have reached 244 million worldwide, which reflects a 41% increase since 2000. The largest number of migrants live in the United States, with 19% of the world’s total.

No one knows how many of the global migrants are illegal, but the International Organization for Migration in Geneva estimates the number to be between 15% and 20%. The united states is considered a very desirable place to live by many people as seen by the number of people who want to come here. But the point is if everyone who wants to go there is permitted, then the quality of that place will soon be gone. Even then people try to find out some illegal ways to get migrated. Illegal migrants should have no expectations of living a quality of life. They have broken the law and should expect to be deported when and if they are confronted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Illegal migrants have the negative impact on the infrastructure of the country. The resources of the country get stretched beyond its capacity. A huge influx of people also affects the economic conditions of the country. Whereas positive legal immigration refreshes the community.

The main problem we face today is illegal immigration that has no true regulation. It also provides a way to the criminals who want to escape from their country.

Illegal immigration needs to be stopped. Strict immigration laws need to be enforced in order to stop illegal immigration. The need of the hour is we need immigration that’s legal, measured and that has the positive effect on the country’s population as well as economy and development.
