Migration is the movement of people from their countries of origin to other countries in search of employment, education or even refuge because of political unrests or natural calamities like earthquakes. Migration is a phenomenon that is becoming too difficult to be controlled. To start with, most countries do not have adequate legislation regarding to this movement of people. This thus makes the public to exploit this loophole and travel to the countries of their liking with or without anything that they are going to carry out there.
This is aggravated further by the desire of attaining higher qualifications in education. As a result of the fact that specialized training is being offered, only in some specific institutions, people thus move to these countries and thus making migration somehow uncontrollable. Immigration is also by the fact that some people may decide to seek on foreign countries (Diaz 8).
In addition, there are a number of irregular workers in the world today. Those people are employed in a contractual basis and have, in one time or another, to be refugees especially waiting to be given identification documents. Thus, the employees own decisions to stay in the foreign countries coupled with the lack of institutional frameworks to deal with these immigrations, does nothing other than add to the numbers of immigrants.
The institutional enforcement, which are extremely vital in such instances, are thus lacking hence making migration look accepted. The society also does certainly nothing as regards to illegal migrations and irregular employments. This makes it even harder to control migration, as the society is also not ready to cooperate (Venturini, 2).
The clamour for globalization highly promotes migration. This is because different business companies are employing people whom they think are well qualified for jobs at hand. This does not necessarily mean that the workers must be from that country and hence they result to outsourcing which leads to migration.
These people on relocating move with their families to their new destinations thus increasing the burden of migration. It is also evident that with the current rate of prevalence of natural disasters and political unrests, migrations will continue being a thorn in the flesh of various countries (Betts 19).
