A large number of illegal immigrants to Russia’s economic and social problems. In recent years, Russia has adopted various measures to manage migration, on the one hand, to guide the high professional skills of highly educated immigrants moved to Russia, on the other hand to increase efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.

The influx of Russian immigrants, illegal immigrants accounted for a large proportion. According to Russian immigration estimates, the number of illegal immigrants in more than five million. The large number of illegal immigrants might pose a threat to social stability in Russia, mainly in the following areas:
Tax evasion to the state’s financial losses. Because the identity is not legal, illegal immigration is separated from the outside of formal employment and tax system, causing serious damage to the national economy. Russian Bureau of Immigration Constantine told the media that illegal immigrants every year only bring up to $ 8 billion in economic losses due to tax evasion, gave Russia.
Deterioration of internal security. Some of the illegal immigrants ignore the law, engage in criminal activities in Russia. More serious crimes, such as firearms, narcotics and psychotropic drugs, the sale of a considerable part of the implementation by illegal immigrants.
Squeeze labor jobs, pushing the local unemployment rate. To make a living, illegal immigration must not local people compete for low-end labor jobs, resulting in oversupply of cheap labor, lower wages and rising unemployment.
Illegal immigration caused by the nationalist sentiments of the Russian part of the population. In recent years, several major cities in Russia are extreme nationalist organization, of which the most notorious young people mainly of “skinheads”. These organizations use terror to attack foreigners and foreigner, extremist criminal cases on the rise.
The authority of the Russian pollsters Levada Centre had a survey results show that the Russian people believe that more than half of the foreign population should be limited to Russia “; 34% of people believe that” Russia’s poverty is in many ways by non- ethnic Russians “; only 20% of respondents to a positive evaluation of the” non-ethnic Russian workers from neighboring countries.

The implementation of the policy achieved some success, and reflected a decrease in the number of illegal immigrants seized.

The Government has prepared a series of preferential measures to simplify the entry registration and nationality procedures, protection from the legal enjoyment of their rights, to provide employment support, eliminating the several years of business tax. In attracting immigrants, pay attention to guiding the relatively small number of its population to the Far East and Siberia Krai flow.
Standardize the management of migration. Since 2007, several new laws and regulations for the management of foreign immigrants came into effect, and the introduction of the concept of “labor quota”. Government in accordance with the actual needs of countries to foreign labor to determine the quantity of labor quota, and the priority assigned to the much-needed areas of expertise talent.
The new law also made it compulsory, requiring immigrants to immigration qualifications, professional and technical certificates and curriculum vitae, providing false materials, immigrants will be fined, possibly even a few years been prohibited from entering.
Add to the illegal immigrants and employers violating immigration laws need to assume responsibility. Foreigners who violate immigration regulations or the provisions of the stay in Russia, the need to pay a fine of thousands of rubles (a ruble is about 0.2 yuan); units or individuals of different types of venues for illegal immigrants will be fined tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of million rubles fine; the unit hire illegal immigrants will be punished by a fine of hundreds of thousands of rubles, and ordered to suspend business for a few months.

It is said that from July 1 this year, Australia Immigration business immigration policy will be a substantial adjustment in business immigration class 163 visa will be canceled and replaced by a new visa category, while the threshold will be a substantial increase. Australia’s immigration go from here? Applicants for emigration to how should seize this last opportunity to grab it? Recently, this reporter interviewed a number of people in the industry.
The focus of one: the New Deal, such as adjustments, Australia’s immigration go from here?
Although the official introduction of the New Deal, but the intermediary in Nanjing have been learned from reliable sources, the New Deal, or will soon be implemented, and begin to step up preparations for the customer materials in time to pass before the New Deal.
It is understood that the New Deal, the threshold adjustment may continue to increase, the content is focused on three aspects: one is business immigration class 163 visa will be canceled, and replaced with a new visa category, which in many ways to increase requirements; Second, the State of Victoria (Melbourne City, where the state) will be May 28 to stop accepting applications for the state government guarantee. Third, the New Deal is likely to take the points system, announced a basic requirement, but in addition to the basic requirements, will be on the applicant based on certain factors to rate, such as age, English proficiency, business experience, the company net assets .
Focus: how to seize the final rush to do?
It is understood that the Australian investment immigration is broadly divided into 163,164,165 in three categories. Different categories corresponding to different business elite. In layman’s terms, 163 applicants for the company, with 30% of the shares of the Company, the annual turnover of more than 300,000 Australian dollars; 164 company executives, the company achieved turnover of 10 million Australian dollars; 165 huge asset securities, investment and other elite.

The Yingda related parties abroad for three days, they can after finishing statements audit for customers, investment plans and other procedures, materials handed the immigration quickly. Just in time before the New Deal handed the applicant’s materials are effective. The next time is relatively long. And the immigration people, as more and more domestic applicants to immigrate to Australia, making the processing cycle is greatly elongated. Example, an average of 12 months for a good 163, you need about one and a half years. 1 year later, the applicant approved, you can get a four-year temporary residence visa in Australia, free primary and secondary school children studying in Australia for two years in Australia, engaged in the business operation, if the good results of operations for the year, you can get the official green card.

The advantages of U.S. immigration policy gradually lost, the impact of lingering
Built by immigrants, the United States not only has a long tradition of immigration, but also the world’s largest nation of immigrants.
However, the United States New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Forum in New York on May 22, U.S. immigration policy expressed concern affected by the adverse immigration policy, the United States is losing its global talent competitive advantage.
Bloomberg published a research report in the discussion of the theme of the competition for talent at the meeting. The results show that intensified global competition for talent, the United States immigration law did not meet the needs of economic development, man-made set of visa restrictions and bureaucratic system barriers will shut out many immigrants, resulting in a large number of brain drain and economic losses. According to the IRS statistics, in 2011 to give up U.S. citizenship and green card number to about 1,800 people, an increase of 9 times more than in 2007, more than the sum of three years from 2007 to 2009.
Bloomberg said, was originally a yearning for the world’s top talent, the first choice of the most industrious people realize their dreams, the quality of immigrant talent of the important reasons of the U.S. economy, the global leader in “But now, the our immigrants advantage is quickly lost.” He believes that the current immigration policy, the U.S. government to develop mainly because of electoral considerations, the result of compromise of partisan struggle, with no regard to its impact on economic development.
The report warns that if the U.S. does not timely reform of immigration laws, will soon face a shortage of creative talents, a shortage of young workers, entrepreneurs reduce the number of many other issues.
In fact, as Canada, Australia and other countries investment in immigrant settlement policy threshold have increased U.S. investment immigration advantages be highlighted. Affected due to the U.S. subprime mortgage crisis, the U.S. economy, the government relaxed investment immigration policy is expected to attract more foreign capital for economic development help, resulting in increasing the number of applications to immigrate to the United States.
The current EB-5 Immigrant Investor Act due to the end of September 2012, which means that the bill is facing a matter of extension. In this regard, before the industry is also all the theory have, for the final outcome is not yet known. But the view from within the recent immigration news release: The U.S. Senate or the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Act be extended for two years, the Senate is still discussing whether to extend for three years, further information will be announced in the near future. As for whether the EB-5 regional centers bill into a permanent bill, said, immigration is still questionable, and expected results in the next few weeks.
The United States is not yet out of the shadow of the financial crisis, the economic situation has not been a good government needs a variety of investment to solve the employment problems of the local, overseas Chinese and foreign experts, said: EB-5 investment since startup on local employment and even the economy have made a significant contribution to the U.S. government is very welcome and give support. The same time, the United States EB-5 Immigrant Investor is designed to attract investors around the world and entrepreneurs to help job creation projects, can be described as one of the fastest way to currently obtain a U.S. green card, by the international investors all ages. The bill after the expiration of 2 years is a reasonable extension results in such a win-win situation.
U.S. EB-5 Regional Center Project has been the application cycle is short, relatively loose eligibility criteria to obtain the favor. Especially in the past two years, frequent adjustment of Canadian investment immigration policy, and has shut down in 2011 and 2012 Canadian federal investment in immigration and in Quebec, Canada Immigrant Investor two traditional items, coupled with the Canadian Immigrant Investor continued price increases, the complexity of the material requirements careful, hearing a long time and the residence, forcing many people have turned to the requirements are relatively simple, fast, no emigration. EB-5 Immigrant Investor.
In addition, the issue of illegal immigration has always been a hot topic in American society. At present, there are more than 10 million illegal immigrants in the United States. According to statistics, in fiscal year 2011, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bureau of repatriated illegal immigrants more than 39.6 million people. All repatriated more than 216,000 people with criminal records.
Faced with the problem of illegal immigrants, the United States has been considerable controversy. Some people think that illegal immigrants already in the United States, should be given citizenship, but many illegal immigrants affect the state should crack down on illegal immigration. States can independently pass the bill, so the states to combat the problem of illegal immigrants to take advantage of the scale is different. For example, in 2010, Arizona passed the most severe crackdown on illegal immigration bill. The bill, illegal immigrants classified as criminal acts, and provides that if the police have doubts as long as a person’s immigration status, would be entitled to examine his identity card, or for further cross-examination. This bill by many human rights groups have accused the excessive expansion of government power and interfere with personal freedom. The U.S. to being immigration laws launched a new discussion.
Management and to prevent illegal immigration to penetrate American society, the U.S. government year by year to improve the immigration laws. For example, when traveling to produce legal identity documents to apply for a driver’s license and other documents must produce a legitimate identity documents. Since 9 • 11 “after the terrorist attacks, the issue of illegal immigration are often involved in the processing by the Department of Homeland Security, illegal residence of the nature of the problem becomes much more serious.
