FOREWORD

 

Forward is the way that most of us travel, but other people may tell us to stop and go backward if we reach their border. All of us will have more places to go and more rights if we make immigration legal and border police illegal. As Americans, or Europeans, or Australians, or people, we value our rights. The right to migrate, which most people do not have, may have the highest value. This book explains why people should have the right to move forward.

 

I wrote this book in easy English. You only need to know a few hard words such as immigration. If we have a right to migrate, that means that each of us could find a new home on any side of any border. When you find the right place for you, you and your neighbors should try to live in peace. You also have a right to sit where you are and read this book. You can begin in any chapter and then go to any other chapter. In this book, you have a right to migrate.
