A New Moral Foundation for Immigration Policy
Due to the effects of climate change, and consequential conflict, it is likely that we are entering a period of increased human migration. Wealthier countries, even if able to adapt to the worst effects of climate change itself, will be wholly unable to escape the pressures of inbound immigration - particularly from regions that suffer most acutely from a heating planet. This presents serious moral and political problems that must be dealt with head-on by people on both sides of the political spectrum.
In this paper, we examine immigration and, in particular, how it relates to concepts and effects of group boundary definition. We highlight key issues in past policy - under both leftist and rightist leadership - and examine moral foundations for future management of inbound irregular immigration.
