A theory based approach to managing illegal immigration into South Africa
The concern over the issue of illegal immigration into South Africa has resulted in widespread incidents of violent confrontation between the noted illegal immigrants and especially the impoverished South Africans. The need to manage illegal immigration effectively and efficiently is one of the primary issues around preserving the security of all South Africans and the state. There are good policies to address illegal immigration into the country but implementation is the major challenge confronting authorities. The study employed document analysis to provide answers to the research question. The researcher complemented the approach with interviews. One of the major findings was the need to close gaps in managing illegal immigration into South Africa and to ensure that all the state institutions work cooperatively in stamping out illicit activities accompanying illegal immigration into the country. Illegal immigration is manageable.
