No end in sight, with enormous and mounting social and monetary costs – Many Centrists believe that such high levels of illegal immigration is due to the lack of opportunity at its source – from where the immigrants flee. We should partner with our neighbors particularly to the south to create greater opportunity in their own countries. People do not decide to leave their families, communities and countries lightly, risking life and limb.
If lives at home are good enough, most will remain where their family, their culture and traditions live proudly. Many Centrists would feel that we should address this problem directly at its source.
