Restricted immigration: The deep rooted effect of the present scenario
The current pandemic has affected the whole world in uncountable ways. It has brought the entire world to a halt. The new normal of hand sanitizers and Zoom calls has become a part of our daily routine.
The disruptions caused will have many short and long term effects on the mobility and immigration arena. With the restricted mobility, migrant laborers who form the foundation of the globalized economy stopped moving. The economic crisis induced by this restricted immigration can be pervasive, deep rooted and long. Social distancing, travel bans, and lock downs have brought global economic activities to a screeching halt.
