What is a sensible immigration policy?

President Trump’s immigration and border security policies have been at the center of heated political debate. Some decry his attempts to limit immigration, impose restrictions or enforce existing laws as regressionist, xenophobic, racist and/or inhumane. Others view lax immigration policy and unprecedented surges of migration as an unsustainable burden and threat to a country’s economic stability, security and/or cultural cohesion. Since the 2015 migrant crisis in Europe, even the most progressive countries such as Germany and Sweden have tightened their borders and accelerated deportations in response to the massive inflow of immigrants. Is this attributable to a far right, reactionary backlash? Or is it a reasonable reaction to the consequences of uncontrolled flows of immigration? What is a sensible immigration policy?
