Federalism in Immigration

American Charles Harns, director of the government-affiliated Migration Research and Training Center (MTRC), argues in favor of "a 'Canada-style' approach to immigration by allowing provinces to shape their own policies, in a bid to bolster the economy and tackle challenges posed by changing demographics" — Korea should adopt 'Canada-style' immigration policy.

One wonders if Dr. Harns would then agree with Patrick J. Buchanan's defense of a state that "is not challenging or usurping U.S. law, but trying to assist the U.S. government in enforcing the immigration laws" — The War on Arizona.

People like Harns are fools with no understanding of Korea. It reminds me of the Swiss UN fellow who insisted that Japan would have "no choice" but to start massive immigration of non-Japanese.

Mass immigration will not happen in either country because the population and elites are solidly, absolutely against it. No one actually inside these countries calls for it or even thinks about it. You could say further that mass immigration in Korea and Japan is an issue that would be fanatically opposed by the Right, the Center, and the Left.

These foreign 'experts' have no clue.

Koreans left, right, and center would likely be just as opposed to federalism as they are to immigration.
