The standard concepts with which the main categories of human mobility are represented are not based on scientific analysis, but are the result of a social construction, determined by a dominant interest. The objective is to impose a model of global governance of migration, which is functional to the law of profit maximization, typical of the logic of the agents of a global market who strive to impose their rules, not to submit to any rules. An instrumental (managerial) logic that reinforces inequality in the internal and international order. Thus, a concept of immigrant (even, refugee) is built based on anomie, prejudice and inequality before the law. A status of subordination that responds to a nineteenth-century conception (colonial) of the categories of citizen and foreigner and that resorts to the alibi of public order and the supposed rationality of the equilibrium of the labor market.
