A new model of immigration

Reader comment on item: Malta and Other Outposts under Seige

Submitted by Vijay (United Kingdom), Jun 19, 2006 at 10:13

Traditionally, immigrants are supposed to be fleeing a horror of some kind, like a brutal dictator about to wring their neck. Then , the immigrants are supposed to be feeling eternal gratefulness for the first country that gave them refuge.

Now , immigrants , for whatever reason, immigrate and there is a strategy of which country will give them best social security and legal security with least cost of integration i.e. least assimilation into that host country . Immigration, escpecially illegal immigration, has become a big business with mafia gangs from many countries controlling the flow, making a fat profit in the bargain. If the immigrants don't land on the country of their dreams, they feel let down, they feel unhappy in the country which gave them refuge and don't even feel gratitude to that country.
