Comment to Long Beach Immigrant Rights Coalition

The citizens of a nation may control who enters the country for permanent residency. They may establish whatever criteria they choose. Those who do not conform with the criteria may have their application rejected. This does not constitute an abrogation of their rights because, in the world structure of nations, they have no right to relocate to another country without the permission of its citizens.
Those who ignore the immigration process of the destination country offend the right of its citizens to control entry. The immigration authority has a right to return them to their origin.
