There is a great deal of debate over whether states can permissibly exclude non-citizens, and which non-citizens they can permissibly exclude. This online workshop focuses on whether certain means of exclusion are morally impermissible. For example, lethally shooting at an individual who has overstayed their visa is likely unjust, even if the state has a general right to exclude this individual. Moreover, even if states act unjustly whenever excluding migrants, certain means of discouraging migration may be justified, such as providing aid to low-income states with the hope of discouraging migration from these states. The workshop will discuss these and other topics relating to immigration enforcement.
