Sunday K.M. Anadi


Globally, contemporary flow strategies of migration, emigration, and immigration have paid a particular attention to the problems that lie behind human movements rather than on the immediate and remote causes of the movements. Illegal immigrants are increasing worldwide, particularly in the United State of America without proper tracking documentation on them, while crime rates are also increasing concurrently. The Study sought to find out whether proper documentation by the Department of Homeland Security on illegal immigrants can help control crime in the country. The study adopted stratified random sampling techniques to solicit for the opinions of American's residents. In all, 750 respondents were used as the sample size for the analysis of the research. The study was purely descriptive in nature. The study found out that proper documentation, rather than illegal status ensures better Security. Also, it was underscored that from the discussion that allowing legitimate sources of livelihood reduces chances of seeking illegal sources. The study recommended that the Department of Homeland security should make provision for illegal immigrants. That is to ensure proper documentation on illegal immigrants in order to monitor and track their activities in the State.
