Give illegal immigrants local opportunity
Could illegal immigrants that have tried to grab a share in resources that belong to the existing population be given an opportunity that will benefit local communities? If they transform sub-economic land, water, mineral and infrastructure resources into economic resources by accepting subeconomic pay rates, they could earn the right to stay. Like early Australians and immigrants in the Great Depression, their sacrifice would bring the right to stay. The subeconomic resources could be made available by local governments, who would sponsor them and supervise their labour. They could develop land, water storage, paddy, irrigation, mineral and infrastructure projects, such as the Snowy River scheme. If they refuse or abscond, they would be sent home. They would have the same chance as many Australians have had.
