Chandran Kukathas is right when he says that “controlling immigration means controlling everyone.”

"Regulating immigration is not just about how people arrive, but about what they do once they have entered a country. It is about controlling how long people stay, where they travel, and what they do. Most of all, it means controlling whether or not and for whom they work (paid or unpaid), what they accept in financial remuneration, and what they must do to remain in employment, for as long as that is permitted. Yet this is not possible without controlling citizens and existing residents, who must be regulated, monitored and policed to make sure that they comply with immigration laws."

No, he's not right.  Controlling who visits and/or who has permission for a limited stay in this country does not mean citizens must "be controlled" as well.

I don't know what's up with the retinal scanning, but I'd say to all who have been so eager to welcome all the "vibrant di-VER-sity", you asked for it.
