dc.description.abstractThis paper presents a first attempt at understanding some of the many issues involved in thegranting of an amnesty to illegal immigrants. We consider government behavior with respectto allocations on limiting infiltration (border control) and apprehending infiltrators (internalcontrol) and with respect to the granting of amnesties, the timing of amnesties, and limitationson eligibility for those amnesties. We demonstrate the effects of government actions onallocations and the flow of immigrants, and how the interactions between these factorscombine to yield an optimal amnesty policy. We also consider various extensions such asintertemporal transfers of policing funds, risk-aversion, and ?fuzziness? in declarationsregarding eligibility for an amnesty aimed at apprehending and deporting undesirables.en_US
