Summary "A survey of the immigration laws and practices of Brazil, Egypt, Japan, Mexico, Sweden, and Switzerland reveals that Japan and Switzerland are most effective in enforcing their immigration laws. Illegal immigration is viewed as harmful in these countries and enforcement mechanisms include the registration of aliens by the local authorities. Mexico also has a register of aliens that is maintained by the federal authorities. The fingerprinting of visa applicants is relied upon in Switzerland and Sweden, and Japan plans on introducing it. Most surveyed countries use border controls and labor inspections, albeit with varying intensity and results. Mexico and Switzerland concentrate on the avoidance and discovery of fraudulent marriages. Enforcement of immigration laws is lax in Brazil and Egypt. All countries except for Brazil have criminal penalties for illegal entry and presence, and all countries have substantial criminal sanctions for various forms of fraud and forgery relating to immigration. In Japan, Mexico, Sweden, and Switzerland human trafficking is severely punished. The highest punishment frames for immigration offenses are found in Mexico, and these aim at coping with the problem of transient migration en route to the United States."
