The  essay  seeks  to  stimulate  thoughts  on  illegal  migration,  especially amongst young  people, towards preventing the occurrence, and for providing  options to breaches of immigration regulations. The options should not only help stop the risks that it exposes perpetrators to, but should offer alternative ideas on earning a living, aside from the belief that the option can only be elsewhere.  It  seeks  to  challenge  the  youths  on  creating  and harnessing opportunities  in  the  local  environment,  and  to  envision  migration  from  the legal path, if desired. The focus of the essay is on emphasizing the risks of illegal migration by deepening knowledge on other possibilities.
