The Joke



It is in the news everyday.  Thousands of people are risking their lives in search of a better life, escaping from hunger, wars, homophobia, unstable political systems, religious persecution, etc.

These people arrive to countries where they have to face a new culture, a different language in some cases, new ways of understanding life, education, working habits, technology, and so on and so forth.  In most cases, it is a whole new world for them.

Immigration is becoming one of most difficult issues to be dealt with by politicians both in Europe and the United States of America.  The million dollar question is: what should be done?  Shall we open the borders and allow everybody in or shall we limit the entrance of immigrants?  The controversy is served.

Songs, novels, articles, essays, etc have been written about this situation. Let's analyze some cases and let's provide some solutions.
