    production of migrants

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "production of migrants" in the following context:

    If the foreign human resources were not demonstrably required they would neither be desired nor admitted for the purpose of productive employment. The desired entry of economically active foreigners, in fulfilling a functional requirement of the immigration country’s economy, benefits its citizens. Some sections of the population will gain more from the production of migrants than others; but it does not invalidate the logical proposition that demand-determined employment of foreign human resources benefits, in principle, all citizens. It follows that the immigration country must be better off with than without the foreigners.

    Does "production of migrants" mean "work done by migrants"?

    Re: production of migrants

    You know, I think you're right, although it was not my first interpretation. I read it, at first, as the "creation of an environment that encouraged immigration" but I think, on second reading, you had a better grasp of the intent.
