In our last few meetings, we have heard from some witnesses about the relationship between the legal and illegal immigration channels and how eliminating legal channels can drive migrants to use the illegal routes. For example, when Spain eliminated the seasonal work visa for Africans, it led to a migrant surge, and bringing back a visa program saw the number of illegals drop.
You have mentioned some programs you have brought in, in Europe. Have you seen that bringing some more legal programs decreases the number of illegal immigrants? What relationship do you find between them?
