Immigration and the control thereof is prevalent in most, if not all modern nation states, but, is such a thing morally right.
If a nation were to open it's doors to everyone, then unemployment would rise and economic stability would decline. However, is this actually the case. With the birth rate of the world increasing at a staggering speed, how is it justifiable to close borders off to other people, yet letting people already there increase the population without check anyways.
Not only this, but we all inhabit the same planet, with nowhere else to go but the places on this earth. What right do we as human beings only, have to deny another the right to go where they want. Surely, we are all equal and therefore should be allowed to visit and explore the world as we wish equally. Imagine if everyone from the Americas was confined only to that continent, and not just that, but their respective countries, and taking it further, to be confined to their respective states or province, unless they request a visa from the area they wish to visit.

If you allow border control on a large scale such as nations, then surely it is fine for border control on small scales like within towns, and especially with the control of the border varying between people's place of birth only. Into this comes the question that, if this is so, then gang wars between people from different streets is too justifiable.

I hope you find this interesting and I welcome whoever wishes to debate this with me. If you would not mind, when you post your first argument, if you could also state the country you live in and also the country you were born in, if it is any different, as for myself, I live in England and was born in England. Thankyou

What is it to be morally right?
What is it to control immigration?

When one answers both these questions it becomes clear how the two are very intertwined at their core.

Control of immigration is more commonly termed 'Border control'. Border controls are measures taken by a country to monitor or regulate its borders. Border controls are put in place to control both the inflow as well as outflow of people, animals and goods.

To be morally right, according to http://oxforddictionaries.com..., is to hold or manifest high principles for proper conduct.

If a government were to let their nation overpopulate and let a huge amount of foreigners inhabit it and take the local jobs that it would lead to rioting and uproar at the neglectful attitude of the government and perhaps create a civil war between locals and foreigners.

It is thus conclusive that having some control on it is morally right because it holds high principles for proper conduct.
