Abstract:

Illegal immigration, in the last ten years, has known an incredible expansion, particularly with the emergence of globalization which emphasized the regional disparities. Consequences of illegal immigration fluctuate from beneficial to disadvantageous. Considering the security aspect, for example, three of the four terrorists pilots in the 911 attacks were in the US illegaly. Economically speaking, illegal immigration may have a positive impact in the reception countries via low salaries. Illegal immigration can be a factor of destabilization in the next decades in the reception and transit countires as well.
