Immigration - What are you scared of?

“IMMIGRANTS – Your Country Needs Them”, by Philippe Legrain.

First we select the strongest, smartest and most determined immigrants by making it hard for even them to get in. Then we exploit them mercilessly, keeping them in their place with the threat of expulsion if they complain. Companies get cheap labour while politicians can claim to be tough on unwanted foreigners. But even those who don’t give a damn about what happens to migrants should worry about the corrosive impact on society of driving immigration underground.
