FUTURISTIC IMMIGRATION

After watching the news, I had a thought about something to add in my futuristic dystopian series. One of the cases we deal with in the real world is illegal immigration. While some of these individuals are a danger, most are desperate people seeking asylum and a better life for themselves and their families. Despite their intentions to improve their lives and give their children a future they can be proud of, these immigrants are often regarded as subhuman by the native population. More recently, migrant families had their children stolen from them and had them locked up in cages like animals. These cruel and inhumane actions against migrants made me wonder how illegal immigration will look like five thousand years in the future. In my story, there will be a civilization that is divided up into multiple districts and moving from one district to another is strictly prohibited. If the borders of the districts are crossed, the migrant parents would be deported to their native district while their children would be executed on the spot in order to act as a deterrent to other would-be migrants. Even so, some districts are more impoverished than others and desperate citizens try to sneak through the borders regardless of the risk. This form of injustice will be one of the atrocities my new superheroes will be battling throughout the series.
