Summary/Abstract: The article describes the impact of migration on the national security of Bulgaria. An analysis of the risks and threats related to the quantitative and qualitative parameters of illegal migration is made and various options, measures and means for its effective counteraction are considered. Illegal migration is a priority in the policies of all Member States and they work together to tackle illegal migrants. There will definitely be waves of migrants in the future until the conflict zone that gives rise to migration is controlled. Efforts must be made to end the military conflicts that are causing the waves of migration and to make targeted efforts to integrate immigrants into European civilization.
