As we said there are two seperate issues in immigration, filling job vacancies and assisting fellow human beings. First, we want to make a distinction between immigrants and refugees because the second require special handling. There is a simple solution to filling job vacancies but it doesn’t fit with over-globalists vision. That is why they try to create confusion. The solution is legal immigration. Governments decide how many, with what skills and from which countries they will bring in. When legal immigrants reside enough time in a country, they should get permanent residency. How much this time is depends. It could be from 5 to 20 years.
Countries should first know the vacancies. With the advancement of the technology this is easy. The vacancies will determine the skills required. Then they will choose from which places of the world legal immigrants would come. They may choose them to be from all over the world, from nearby countries or a combination.
Immigrants from nearby countries keep close ties with their homeland. They visit very often their country once they obtain some documents. Sometimes they go several times in a year. In the case of an economic downturn, it is easier for them to leave and come back later when the economy improves.The ones from faraway places visit their homeland rarely because it is too far and too expensive. During a downturn it is difficult for them to leave and come back later.
Having immigrants from all over the world gives more diversity and is a lot more interesting. A combination of both would be having immigrants from all over the world with a higher percentage from nearby countries. If the country is in an economic block with preferential economic relations it may choose to bring immigrants from other countries in the same block.
Open borders is out of the question for several decades. Opening the borders will create an influx of 6,5 billion in advanced countries. It will be only possible once income differences between countries are not that big. No one will leave his homeland to be a little better off in a foreign land. They will do it only to be much better off. We are not saying that we are for or against open borders but we claim that opening borders will not cause much trouble, once income differences are not that big among countries. We are definitely against open borders with current global circumstances.
