Immigration control can be defined as a method of regulating movement of people from one country into another for permanent or temporary settlement. This essay will evaluate the conditions immigrants need to fulfill in order to be given permanent status. According to Trebilcock (as cited in Miller, 2005), millions of people (more than 100 million) reside outside countries which are not their origin. The first part of this paper will highlight some reasons why certain requirements need to be met, after which it will focus on three categories of immigrants: workers, family class immigrants and refugees (asylum seekers who fled their countries because of war, persecution, or natural disasters). In most countries, security is usually the main reason why strict immigration measures exist, but it differs from one country to another. For a country like Israel, which has a history related to the Jewish people (Kukathas, 2005), may likely desire to keep its cultural integrity rather than transform into a multicultural state. Another example is Saudi Arabia; given its past history as a holy land for Muslims (ibid), it is slightly impossible for a person outside that religion to gain permanent status. Population is also an important factor to consider, open boarders (where there are no conditions for immigrants) can lead to overpopulation which may eventually cause problems such as: social chaos between immigrants and citizens, economic pressure on the government which may have burden on the welfare system. On the basis of the human right, people have the right to exit from their current state where basic human rights are unattainable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
