Having viewed the situation, it seems pertinent to add that aside from the Asiatics, who are well under control, there is no immigration problem in South Africa. There is a distinct policy, as has been emphasized, which is to seek only English-speaking settlers, yet the Union, when considerations of public welfare demand such action, opens and closes the gates even to these at will. At the present time, as was stated earlier in this chapter, people even from the United Kingdom, unless financially independent, are not allowed to enter. South Africa has never had to meet problems of a heterogeneous immigration such as Canada, owing to her freer policy in earlier years, has had to face.

The more enlightened nations are now beginning to realize that rapid industrial development may be secured at too heavy a social cost, and are shaping their policies in regard to the admission of aliens accordingly.
