|Arguments for the migration potential use:
||Arguments against the migration potential use:
|1. The government is interested in the immigrants’ labour force use, as in the long run this brings profit to the economy (for example, in large infrastructure facilities construction).
||1. Growth of the informal sector activity parallel to the local unemployment rise (due to the fact, that migrants as a cheaper labor force crowd out local residents, depriving them of their earnings).
|2. Private companies pay more taxes to the state and wages to workers. The state receives tax revenues. As a result, it should develop and implement social programs.
||2. Different forms of labour immigrants’ discrimination (especially, social services absence, such as medicine, education, housing etc.).
|3. The informal sector enterprises can be transformed into legal form and pay official taxes to the state.
||3. Young immigrants’ unemployment, many of whom are NEETS (according to OECD: no education, employment, training, skills), negatively affects the state of society as a whole, leading, in particular, to the increase in the level of youth crime.
|4. Migrants’ employment allows them to transfer earned money to their homeland, which supports their families and at the same time replenishes budget revenues.
||4. The negative attitude of many African governments towards immigrants (both illegal and legalized migrants).
