THE IILEGAL IMMIGRANTS THREAT TO MALAYSIAN SECURITY
Today, they may be illegal immigrants, tomorrow, they be criminals or even terrorists! Is that the way our security is being treated? We may not only be bankrupt in a few years' time but possibly even without a country if we never overcome this illegal immigrant’s problem. It was reported, in the past 10-15 years 1 to 2 million left Malaysia to work and reside in overseas. Malaysia populations were at 22-23 millions about 15 years ago. Ten years after that, the population increased to 28 millions. Have you wonder where do these people come from? Our previous birth rate could only sustain or increase the population to an optimum of 500 thousands to 1 million, which would already consider great. The actual fact of this tremendous increasement of population is because millions of illegal immigrants and illegal workers flooded due to poor Malaysian immigration policy and local authority. Foreign nationals are seen all over in the streets, coffee shops, and stalls now days in Malaysia. Is this a good thing?
Please don't misunderstood my statement, I do not discriminate foreign workers, especially skilled workers, from coming and residing in Malaysia. Since it has also been Malaysia aim to increase her population, the immigration policy should be more open to attract skilled workers by being more efficient and practice equal opportunities to all nationalities and background. Welcome the workers in a legal ways than opening backdoors to them then blame them flooded in illegally. Lack of proper checking at immigration resulted many workers coming without skill, proper qualification and/or experience. Singaporeans migrated to overseas because there are places they feel are better for their families and themselves. It doesn't mean Singapore is a bad country. The same can be said for Malaysia. People move around the world. Other countries welcome skilled migrant workers entering through proper immigration procedure. This is what Malaysia lack of. Definition of Illegal Immigrant
Illegal immigrants are people who migrate across national borders without complying with the legal requirements. Some people call those they suspect of illegal immigration as illegal immigrants or undocumented immigrants. People who arrive legally but then overstay their visas may also have illegal status. The term illegal immigrant is highly contested because some consider it a pejorative term, since some consider violating the law a moral as well as legal issue. Because of these, the illegal immigrants give serious effects to Malaysia which makes our government worried about the Malaysian community. Why Illegal Immigrants Make Their Way To This Country?
When the poverty pulverizes the human, people decides to get out of their place of origin to the new places, where the opportunities are abound. If the new place is closer to their home, they may risk their life even by travelling in a small vessel and take the short voyage under dark. If the same place is quite afar, they may find means by selling the properties or taking a loan from the money lenders to fulfill the dream of good life. When an immigrant worker earns enough and sends back home, they are enthusiastic to seek the dream of having a home of their own and other comforts. Currently, areas where most foreign workers can be found are in the plantation, labor-intensive manufacturing industries, construction, domestic help, coffee shops and mamak shops and cleaning services. Irregular migrants are likely to work in the informal sectors of the economy or in the remote parts of the country. By virtue of their unlawful status, they are easily open to exploitation, and have little or no avenue for legal redress. They succumb to poverty easily and live in squalid housing conditions. They often resort to crime when unemployed. By by-passing the health screening system for migrant workers, they are a source of highly contagious diseases. None the less,...
...A Threat To Security - Illegal Immigration
While the argument of open borders is highly debated, I believe that the best way to solve the problem of illegal immigration is to highly enforce the laws that were set to defend the United States against illegal immigration, and try our very best to keep out all immigrants that attempt to cross our borders without permission. Crossing our borders illegally causes many problems with the populations of both the United States and Mexico. Along with that, it too causes problems with crime levels and economics. If the borders were to be open, all of these problems would reach a most undesirable height.
The population of illegal immigrants in the United States is a growing problem, literally. It is estimated by government and academic sources that the number of illegal residents in our country is about eleven million, as of 2010. This could very well be a problem, because it can lead to the overpopulation of some areas, which would devastate our need for jobs, space, money, and products. Also, if we were to open borders, the rapidly-increasing population would prove to conflict with our immigration quotas. Even if we were not to strongly enforce our immigration laws, our quotas would be very rapidly filled, leading still to illegal immigration. If we were to get rid of the quotas for Mexico and other large immigration countries, significantly more people would be entering...
...The positive side of Immigrations
Many people from all over the world move to America and this number of immigrants in the America has steadily grown. Shockingly, “the number of immigrants living in U.S. increased by 2.4 million” (A Nation of Immigrants). They are moving to United State because of the amenities that it has. They leave everything behind for that “American dream”. Those dreamers come to America looking for new opportunities, freedom, better lifestyles, etc. They are looking for the things that they didn’t have in their countries, so they come here to get more opportunities and be successful. According to John B. Judis, The author “Border War” “Mexicans and other Latinos are willing to pay the coyotes, because they hope to find well-paying jobs in the United States.” They are looking for better job and opportunities to make a comfortable life for their families. Although some people argue that immigrants are destroying our society and have many disadvantages for U.S., in fact they help United State to grow economically, educationally, culturally, and keeps America progressing, so we need to attract more immigrants to our land to make America more powerful.
One of the most important advantages of the immigrants is that they help our economy. Many Americans complain that immigrants take their jobs. However, what they do not realize that the jobs...

SecurityThreat: Gangs Inside Prison Walls
By: Katelynn Gregory
CJ130; Unit 9 Final Project
The Aryan Brotherhood, also know widely as The Brand, Alice Baker, AB, or One-Two, is the Nation’s oldest major white supremacist gang and national crime syndicate. The Aryan Brotherhood gang was founded in 1964 by Irish bikers as a form of protection for white inmates in newly desegregated prisons. The founding location of this gang was at the San Quentin State Prison in California. The idea of the AB was initially to have a safety line so to speak when prisons were desegregated. They band together to make sure no one from another raced messed with them. Today, things have changed. They are now operating in and out of prisons all over the country. Although it clearly has a white supremacist ideology, it is above all criminal enterprise. If a sect of Ab was given the choice between cash and showing there devoted racism, members would virtually go for the cash. The Aryan Brotherhood has often worked with Latino and other gangs to make a profit, putting their racial tendencies aside. The AB participates in drug trafficking, male prostitution rings, gambling, and extortion inside prison walls. On the streets, the AB is involved in practically every kind of criminal enterprise, including murder-for-hire, armed robbery, gun running, methamphetamine manufacturing, heroin sales, counterfeiting and identity theft. California is...
...location. “Push factors are generally negative, such as poor economic conditions, lack of opportunity, discrimination, political oppression, and war. Whereas pull factors are generally positive, such as better economic opportunity, political freedom, and favorable reception toward immigrants” (Potocky-Tripodi, 2002, p. 13).
In order to understand the resettlement and adaption of immigrants in a host country, it is critical to examine all aspects of animmigrant migration path. In light of this phenomenon is significant to understand this process through the lens of three stages of migration: premigration and departure, transit, and resettlement. Theses stages can serve as an ongoing frame of reference for evaluation and comparing their current experience in the host country. “The stage of migration framework provides a context for understating and helping immigrants families and individuals by linking the migration experiences in the original and intermediate countries with experiences in the country of destination” (Drachman, Kwon-Ahn, & Paulino, 1996, p. 627). Using this framework an interview was conduct to analyze the human experiences of migration in attempt to further gain insight on immigrant who take into account not only their economic needs but also social and cultural differences, which may or may not be accepted.
For the privacy of the interviewee, the name Ms. Stephenson will be...
...Immigration in biology leads to genetic variation and higher survival levels. When one talks of immigration, now concerns of economy and living arrangements are the first thoughts that pop in the minds of many. Social and economical positions are extremely intertwined with the concept of immigration. Immigration leads to higher rates of competition in the economy which leads for businesses to have higher output levels, in turn giving room for more workers to be hired. Immigration also leads to more social diversity. More cultures are placed into areas with hundreds if not thousands of other cultures and soon the society becomes greatly diverse. Looking into the past, immigrant workers were responsible for the construction of this nation. This is indeed a nation built off the sweat of immigrant workers from the world over. Immigrants have given enough to this nation to be recognized as key aspects of this nation’s past. Through the process of immigration this nation has grown and expanded. Immigration has been a powerful worker in the creation of this nation and will be discussed as such.
In biology organisms of the same species live within the same living habitats. They share the same needs and do not shun those who live in their habitats. Most organisms live with an understanding that working together will ensure survival. That is the understanding that if one were to exclude themselves from their pack then one would have a lower...

Common Information SecurityThreats
Information is what keeps this seemingly chaotic world functioning systematically. Not so long ago, information was physically present, printed or written on papers. To convey important information or messages, we used letters that took some time to reach its destination. Once our civilization invented and learned how to use electricity to store and send information, we never stopped since. Most of our important information is now being created, stored and sent through vast network of information superhighways. Information securitythreats were present even before we went digital and information securitythreats pose much greater risk now than ever before.
We all like our digital device and can’t go by doing our daily work without them. We pay bills, bank, communicate, socialize and much more online. Our information is out and about in the vast digital sea of information. Our personal information is under attack all the time on many social networking sites. Our financial information is also under attack on online shopping and banking websites. People who like to steal that information through their knowledge and experience in information technology field are known as hackers. Many hackers don’t have to know everything about the field they want to...
...Possible threats to Security
Computer systems are vulnerable to many threats which can result in significant damage or loss of data such as natural disasters, a fire, loss can also stem from supposedly trusted employees defrauding the system and unauthorized access from an outside source.
Threats maybe classified into two broad categories, environmental or passive threats and threats that are posed by people.
Threats posed by people
The threats to a computer system which are attributable to people are:
Employees are most familiar with the set up of their employer’s computers and applications. If the staff was downsized for the art gallery and the system accounts were not deleted in a timely manner then the employees who were out of a job could easily access the data and tamper with it.
Industrial espionage is the act of gathering proprietary data from private companies or the government for the purpose of helping another company. Industrial espionage can be perpetrated either by companies seeking to improve their competitive advantage or by governments seeking to aid their domestic industries. Foreign industrial espionage carried out by a government is often referred to as economic espionage. Since information is processed and stored on computer systems, computer security can help protect against such...
