Should the Caribbean look to the UK Campaign - 'Strangers into Citizens'

In the Saturday 27th February 2010 issue of the Guardian Weekend Edition, Polly Toynbee spoke about the UK's borders being porous and questioned why politicians can't admit to that fact. She closed her article by referring to the UK Campaign "Strangers into Citizens'. This campaign is advocating for an 'earned' amnesty for undocumented migrants after five years. She writes "If two years after emerging to register they are in work and speak English, they would earn citizenship and pay tax.'
