POLICIES AGAINST IMMIGRANTS IN WESTERN EUROPE
Abstract: This study presents an
analyse of the policies against immigrants in Europe and
Key words: migration,
In the last decade of the twentieth century, it was produced a amplification of the international mobility departures from the countries of origin and the successive entries in country of destination, the social consequences, economic and cultural of these countries, generated by Romania and immigration, the character legally or illegally immigration and the trends of the development of this, imposed an obligation to control the migration phenomenon by the States concerned by this subject.
As such, member of the companies subject to the consistent pressure have been forced to take legislative measures to limit of net effects created by foreign nationals entry, and also to maximize the positive effects, taking the birth, special policies in the field migration, supported by appropriate institutional support. Migration Policies concern the evaluation, control and regulate flow of immigrants, as well as those emigrants. These policies launched at the level of states has become imperative at a time when the volume of immigrants time been reached the top, and the effects phenomenon have become visible disturbing or dysfunctional. The statistical estimates, the year 1990 are registered in the world on approximately 130 million immigrants (legal and illegal) international and refugees.
In the face of such a situation the state intervention is became not only desirable but mandatory, in particular in the case the emigration for work, because he had to offer a protection and support its citizens abroad. Equally important was the state intervention in countries which have been confronted with multiple problems arising from waves of immigrants foreigners. Some studies devoted analysis migration signals that actions of control of the state are limited in the departures from their own territories and more developed for the entries, considering that according to the size and their frequency must establish the standards or the restrictions necessary to monitor the fluxes of immigrants
If we accept the space for the exercise of the authority is a fundamental element for actions of the state, then very probably any state will try to control at least exits and entries in space. Similarly, will try to regulate/supervise parking nationals of other states (citizens) on its own territory. It is clear that the monitoring measures to stay are much more difficult to bring into force (and the discovered irregularities) and those linked to the entry. Therefore, the emphasis is, in most cases, the control entry into the area for the exercise of authority. On the other hand, any exit from the space of the state assumed inevitably entry into the area another state. Therefore, any member would very likely to be a number of citizens who are outside their own borders, which is bound to offer them protection rights under offered citizenship. Walking further, any citizen can leave, into another state, remains for a period in state or outside and can come back .
The prevailing interest to adopt such state special policies for immigrants derives from the fact that they once entrants in the territory of countries, have to solve a series of vital needs, such as: obtaining a dwelling, commitment to a job and income acquisition of safe to live, the integration of work and the AP in local and social community.
These individual needs can make some immigrants to commit various crimes (theft, prostitution, for S2. a.), darkness, in this way, the sources of social disorder and from, however, state intervention to prevent and combat effects of the phenomenon of immigration.
A State may decide measures to control emigration or immigration depending on the importance they attach phenomenon at the moment, and to assess the effects on which he may have on their own companies in the short term, medium and long term. The rules adopted by a State for foreign control of movement and related institutions concern
1) Entrances and exits citizens of the national space exercising authority;
2) Remaining citizens that their national territory,
Work foreigners constitute a priority objective for the policies of control of the state: 'ways through which it is aimed at two forms: Control input and control after insertion on own market. From here derives a series of specific rules aimed at the exclusively situation foreigners who work or who want to work in the territory of stat .
We mention that migration for employment is a type of private foreign migration and trainer those foreigners admitted to the state of the country to work in certain fields, reward for a period equal to the duration of employment contract set. The duration of stay is determined, but may become the unlimited changes produced the report by Foreign persons status, which may acquire, meanwhile, the state citizenship whose territory work.

The position Western face of immigration is different phenomenon, the report of historic era. Thus, we found that:
- until the 1990' 90, Member capitalist advanced position was, the rule, permissive, and even encouraging for immigrants coming;
- after 1990 appeared political attitudes and different official, be they opposed chaotic immigration (requiring a selective acceptance of immigrants, according to the economy needs Interior), or were entirely against immigration, either partner for acceptance without any legislative barriers.
Their policy after the second world war, Western states of the companies capitalist advanced have promoted constantly certain universal values, such as peace, democracy, human rights and freedom, including the right to freedom of movement.
Consequently, the Western world (European and American), who had entered the era of the Cold War with Member States of communist bloc worldwide, posted an attitude indulgent towards immigrants, accountable politically by cultivating values referred, ideologically by supporting virtues of the company capitalist, and the need of employment.
Thus, we can explain why political refugees from communist countries have always been supported in Western societies. The opening of national coming immigrants gates lasted, but, until the 1990' 90, after which he recorded and hostile attitudes or opposing, coming from political forces and some publications with nationalist character.
Examining the historical
phenomenon of immigration has offered some authors’ possibility had noticed
that: 'till the 1960' 70, European countries have generally been favourable
immigration and, in many cases, such as
However, to end early' 80 the rates of high unemployment, the number of immigrants and character their victory « non-European 'have produced changes very stringent in attitudes and policy Europeans. A few years later, similar concerns have led to a change in comparable member unite .
At the end decade of 9-century of the XXth century, about 50 million people he had left the country of origin (emigrants) and were searching for other countries, where to establish (immigrants), is only temporary (to work and to return home) or forever.
'In 1990, a number
estimated at 20 million emigrants who are in the first generation is found in
The alarming proliferation of high by immigrants in Western societies sensitised to public institutions and non-governmental, means of communication for the mass-who presented a series of domestic citizens social aspects harmful and degrading caused by foreigners. It was enough to need some assistance stringent from state, in order to calm fears population and to assess the situation flow of immigrants in the long term.
Western citizens concern and fears are founded on the real facts: immigrants agreeing any job and salary level ANY (endangering, as such, their jobs well paid for domestic), shared cultural values and other religious, made the phenomenon of crime and constitute the vast number, a public issue and a difficulty in addition to the authorities to ensure individual security and social order.
At all this adds that immigrants came to their great part of Asian countries (while being so, other carriers civilization, faith-Muslim-and ways of life), power known for their high rate-able to change the ethnic composition of a company. In other words, non-wave immigrants Europeans was potentially able to exceed that of immigrants on our continent or of other western companies.
For example, 'in
In the 1960' 50, two-thirds of Immigrants who are in the United States came from Europe and Canada; in the 1960' 80, almost 35 percent of more great number of immigrants came from Asia, 45 percent of Latin America and at least 15 percent in Europe and Canada, natural growth of population is low in the United States and zero in Europe .
Therefore, the Muslim immigrants to reproduce through free up (their religion prohibiting voluntary breaks task), they become responsible for the increase in western population and the next decades changing its structure.
Westerners fear or they face the foreigners derives from the perception that their presence on a threat to their style and life as an impediment to the report with social and economical operation its own system of protection and property.
It seems that the anxiety Westerners as regards their identity is national caused mainly by associating with that image of the Muslim terrorist, because of frequent attacks in the world, the origin which have been extremist organisations and Islamist forces.
At the early' 90-noticed Samuel T. Huntington in his
book, civilizations clash and restoring World Order 'two-thirds of Immigrants

Some sociological research,
carried out in some western companies, highlights the fact that people
hostility towards foreigners is selective, depending on behaviour and their
integration in social life, according to the countries of origin, religion and
culture. For instance, a Polish citizen or a black came from Africa does not
cause a Western feelings of fear or contempt, for the first is that
The hostility is directed
against Muslims in general. The French have accepted Africans who speak perfect
French in their Parliament, but not bearing Muslim girls accept squares in
schools. In 1990, 76% of French public opinion argues that are too many Arabs
In 1994, 47% of German said that would have preferred
to have their neighbourhood Arab, 39% they wanted Poles, 36%-Turks and 22%-Jews.
The existence of opposition public face of immigration in some companies in Western Europe and not foreigners who have been guilty of committing acts criminal serious has caused anger by groups of citizens in developed countries, which have come forward including about violence against certain immigrants or camps.
Some political parties of right, nationalist have exploited in their programmes theme hostility towards immigrants, particularly during election campaigns. The European parties opposed vehemently entry citizens Muslims in their own countries, invoking the main reasons for discontent economic of the population (especially the one who was affected by unemployment) and character alleged pathological of influences Islamist (considerate to be generators acts extremist, violent and religious extremism, fanatisme)
The protests, calls ethnic and nationalist speeches or religious, accusations against some state institutions have become means of communication to the public of their political objectives.
General political climate
in the Western countries of
Francois Mitterrand, Edith Cresson, Valery Giscard d'Estaing and other important politicians were enjoying positions against immigration. Immigration constituted a major issue in parliamentary elections in 1993 and has contributed in appearance to the victory parties communist. During the first years of more of 9-century, the policy by the French Government has been changed to make it more difficult acquiring Citizenship by children immigrants and immigration families foreigners, to prevent the aliens to demand asylum and Algerians to obtain visas and came in France. The illegal immigrants have been deported”
The attitude against the French authorities against immigrants in general, was due in large part, their tendency to increase the flow of foreign nationals coming from countries Maghreb (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia), who had the skills training and, therefore, could not be absorbed by the labour market in France. In addition, the company French and the main institutions of state had the levers needed for the takeover and integrating socio-economic of huge contingents of immigrants.
The inability of authorities to settle problems foreigners (primarily those related to the workplace and the mansion), it was found later, when the uprising and large-scale acts of violence in the immigrants in Paris, most young people, caused huge material damage in the state public and private, throwing tough test for government intervention forces relative social resettlement.
In this context, remember
that the rebellion began in
Balance registered as a result of street confrontations between forces of Muslim insurgents and revealed that they were 9,193 cars set, 2,921 persons investigated and 56 policemen injured. Material damage was estimated at 55 million euros. A year later, violence has been started anew, but has not been for the duration and intensity of the above.
Some opposition official and political circles face immigration prevailed and in other Western companies, such as Germany, England, Italy, Austria, etc. 'in Germany, Chancellor Helmut Kohl and other political leaders have expressed, in addition, concerns about immigration and most important measure of the government for this purpose has been amend Article 16 of the Constitution German what guarantee asylum «for those persecuted on political grounds» and reducing benefits to the asylum requests.
A systematic policy of
controlling foreigners and the filtration entry them prevailed and in
Because the restrictions of movement of persons have been dismantled in the European Union, British concerns have been in great measure concentrates on non-European immigration dangers on the continent. at mid-years' 90, in general, all European countries were moved inexorably towards reducing the minimum, if not the total elimination of forced, from non-European' sources.”
