Abstract and Keywords

This article addresses the ethical issues of immigration. It asks about the morality of admitting persons into (and out of) the state, for any of these reasons and under any of these conditions. Therefore, there may be no single answer about the morality of immigration — it will require taking positions on a number of different matters. What stance one takes will often depend upon — or shape — one's general views about the nature of the state.

Keywords: immigration, ethical issues, morality of immigration, state's nature, egalitarianism, open borders
