Description

Immigration should be seen as one of modern societies great success stories because known progressive countries as France , Italy , Germany , Greece , US etc have welcomed for the last half century a large number of immigrants , found productive employment for them , and successfully integrated them into their population . These high levels of immigration have always maintained the population of the welcoming countries young and have completely eliminated what otherwise would have been pointed out, as a shrinking population of working-age adults. Countries which have shared a rich tradition as welcoming immigrant nations always have had an orderly and efficient legal system for the mere reason that inadequacies of the immigration policies bring a continued failure in economy; jeopardize diplomacy and as a result threaten national security. From one hand we have Syrian migrants and other middle east countries and from the other hand we have Germany, as the first country in Europe welcoming the migrants. This kind of actions is considered part of solidarity of European Union Members. However, there is still a predominant belief that rich countries are helping the poorest countries, and in such situation solidarity as a notion seem to be in vain. The solidarity concept among countries, seem always to be ‘I want my money back’ and the aid given to weak countries is a zero sum transaction. Although legislation is important, no legislative reform will succeed without a commitment to improve significantly the current system for handling legal immigration and enforce laws against illegal immigration . Like any rationing system , enforcing immigration legal system is extremely difficult particularly in the face of rapid population growth , ease of travel and a more closely integrated global economy . Efforts at immigration reform must acknowledge the limits of any government ability to control such large demographic and economic forces and immigration laws should be much better but given the scale of the task they will always be imperfect.

Durres, Albania

Immigration should be seen as one of modern societies great success stories because known progressive countries as France , Italy , Germany , Greece , US etc have welcomed for the last half century a large number of immigrants , found productive employment for them , and successfully integrated them into their population . These high levels of immigration have always maintained the population of the welcoming countries young and have completely eliminated what otherwise would have been pointed out, as a shrinking population of working-age adults. Countries which have shared a rich tradition as welcoming immigrant nations always have had an orderly and efficient legal system for the mere reason that inadequacies of the immigration policies bring a continued failure in economy; jeopardize diplomacy and as a result threaten national security. From one hand we have Syrian migrants and other middle east countries and from the other hand we have Germany, as the first country in Europe welcoming the migrants. This kind of actions is considered part of solidarity of European Union Members. However, there is still a predominant belief that rich countries are helping the poorest countries, and in such situation solidarity as a notion seem to be in vain. The solidarity concept among countries, seem always to be ‘I want my money back’ and the aid given to weak countries is a zero sum transaction. Although legislation is important, no legislative reform will succeed without a commitment to improve significantly the current system for handling legal immigration and enforce laws against illegal immigration .
