This paper will examine the phenomenon of migration, movement of people across national borders, into South Africa causing socio-economic challenges that negatively impact the internal defense security of South Africa. The question remains what role and how South Africa will approach neighboring countries in an effort to resolve this issue. This paper briefly explains why migration is a problem, what negative consequences it poses, and what interventions South Africa in collaboration with neighboring countries should engage to mitigate this migration phenomenon and the reduce the impact on defense and military forces. Comparisons will be made with the migration of people to the United States to see if there are any similarities and lessons learnt to be used as a basis to build and improve the security challenge imposed by migration to South Africa.
