To Immigrate Or Not To Immigrate
“Canada could not help the world by taking more immigrants, and could only destroy its own way of life in attempting to do so.” “...it would have to reduce immigration”
Immigration is the movement of people or peoples from one country to another. There are many different reasons to immigrate such as seeking safety from war or prosecution in your country, better job opportunities, or to reconnect with family members. The source suggests that the increase immigration coming to Canada is causing us to lose our identity of what makes us Canadian. The source is against immigration and feels that it is destroying our way of life. Some people would say the source is 100% correct. There are thousands of immigrants coming to Canada every year and the major cities that these immigrants are going to can’t provide homes fast enough to meet their needs for housing. With all the different cultures that are coming to Canada it would break us apart, force us away from one another because we don’t believe in the same religion or have different visions of what’s right and wrong. Of course not everyone would agree with the source of this topic. They might point out how all these different ethnic groups bring more diversity to Canada and introduce us to new ideas or ways of thinking. These immigrants are also the only way to keep Canada from loosing population as the rate of deaths and births in Canada grow increasingly closer. Many people would look at this and see many points that are both correct and incorrect. They might say that of course Canada needs to keep bringing in immigrants but we have to make better accommodations for housing before they bring them in. I personally feel that the source is incorrect and we need immigration. As with most 1st world countries Canada's citizens are having fewer and fewer kids. The death rate...
...world more submitted to global crisis since their economies are closely interlinked than a crisis in one country would lead to the same effect on economies of other countries that are its economic partners. In this respect, migration seems to be probably the most effective by such a striking contrast that leads to high level of emigration from developing countries and respectively high level of immigration in developed countries. This means that people from developing and poor countries prefer to move to developed and rich countries.
Moreover, this process keeps growing despite the fact that globalization produced a positive influence on international trade flows that have increased significantly since the beginning of the process of globalization. Presumably, it should really improve the situation in developing countries and decrease the level of emigration. Nonetheless, in actuality the trend, which will be discussed in details a bit later, remains practically unchangeable even though many developed countries attempt to create certain artificial barriers to both legal and illegal immigration. In such a way it is necessary to remember that globalization is a dubious process that has both positive and negative sides and migration is highly dependent on this process to the extent that the basic migration flows are defined by the current situation in the global economy and possibilities of population movement between different countries.
...Immigration is the movement of people from other countries that come into another country of especially which they are not a native in order to settle there. Immigration is made for diverse of reasons. The most important of these are escape from poverty, economic, social, political reasons, natural sisaster, unimployment and live in clover. Other causes are retirement migration from rich countries to lower-cost countries with better climate is a new style of international immigration. For example British citizens would rather to immigrate to Spain or İtaly or retired Canadian citizens to the US. While for some migrants education is the primary reason, some migrants has personal reasons, relationship between family or a partner or marriage. As can be seen there are many reasons to migrate and in more detailed examined we can see more reasons.
Over the past quarter century the number of international migrants has doubled to more than 200m this trend is set to increase. (See Ian Goldin, Geoffrey Cameron and Meera Balarajan in book, “Exceptional People”) If rich countries were to admit enough migrants from poor countries to expand their own labour forces by a mere 3%, the world would be richer, according to one estimate, by $356 billion a year. (2) For instance if implemented within a well thought out policy, migration can be the most effective tool yet devised for reducing global poverty.

...migration issue among the Austrian immigration to Canada. Canada can be identified simply as a country of vast geographical size, the second largest country in the world, but with a small population of some 25 million people, and is in many ways several countries accidentally linked by the historical development, peopled by different and distinct immigrant cultures, symbolised by having two official languages.(Brake, 1985, p.144) Immigration is a big complex issue that depends on individual choice but if there should be a generalisation it would be indicate as a struggle to create a new life with hopes by sweeping the past mostly. To an answer to why is it a "complex" issue, it can be said that the general dissatisfaction, which means, people migrating to other countries by leaving many things behind mostly nag about the conditions of the new country in terms of racism, ethnic prejudice also native residents complain about newcomers too. So if nothing has changed in terms of satisfaction why are these people still continuing to migrate? To make this question clearer, some points have to be highlighted as firstly brief information about how Austrians came to Canada then why Canada is attractive to Austrian residents, sociologic profile of Austrian immigrants, what are the contributions of immigrants for the migrated country and also the issue of native's feedback to immigrants. Even tough Austrian immigration seems considerably...
...IMMIGRATION RESTRICTION ACT- 1901
The Immigration Restriction Act (1901) can be argued was a policy enacted to reflect the prejudices in Australian society at the time. The Immigration Restriction Act consisted of the Australian Parliament limiting immigration to Australia, which came to be known as The White Australia Policy. The White Australia Policy consists of various historical laws that favour immigration to Australia from Britain but strongly discourage non-whites or people who are not of British descent.
At the turn of the Century Australia was still a relatively new country. It’s population was 4 million, somewhat small, compared to other world populations. At the time the general public consensus was that Australia should be a white country and allowing indiscriminate immigration could threaten its identity. The White Australia Policy had overwhelming support from Australia’s white population, so it could be argued that its introduction was merely a reflection of the public’s ideals at the time. This is reflected by historian Myra Willard:
"…no motive power, operated more universally on this continent, or in the beautiful island of Tasmania… than the desire that we should be one people, and remain one people, without the admixture of other races."
Myra Willard, 'History of the White Australia Policy to 1920'. Melbourne University Press, 1923. p 119
It is clear that white...
...Benefits of ImmigrationImmigration issues are discussed from very different viewpoints. Some people argue that immigration has nothing but huge costs. Expenses like ESL (English as a Second Language) costs, the increase in crime associated with foreign criminality and the insecurity after September 11 terrorist attack have made people to question if immigration should increase. In my opionion, immigration has a lot of benefits and is an asset to any country. It encourages economic growth and creates cultural diversity and understanding of different nations.
First, some people say that increased migration means higher unemployment rates. In fact, the majority of people come here to work, to start a new life. As statistics shows, the most immigrants are employed and work as they have to provide a living for themselves; They pay taxes and contribute to pension funds and income taxes. Against this argument, are also the migrants who open businesses and create new work places. Many investments and capital brought into Canada are by immigrants and foreign businessmen. Immigration helps Canada's economy to prosper. Indeed, immigrants represents a large labor force in the Canadian industry and they are doing the hard jobs from which Canadians are less disposed to do. Newcomers have the willingness to work hard, even if the job is not good paid. Immigrants are...
...Was the post-war rise in immigration solely due to economic factors? Consider at least two European countries and explain your answer.
An immigrant or a non- citizen legal resident could be defined as an individual who decides to move to a country and lives there longer than a period of usually three to six months.
One of the most heavily discussed subjects at a worldwide scale in post-war Europe was immigration, its effects and the rise of this event which was an essential factor when it came to economic growth, deeply influenced by social, political and not the least, economic factors.
Almost 100 million people in the world live in another country, a country other than their own and when it comes to Europe, immigrant percentages were found to be highest in countries such as Switzerland, Austria, Belgium and Germany ( more than eight percent in 1998).
There were two waves of immigration: between 1950 and 1975 ( decolonisation, return migrants and labour migration) and from 1975 to the present day ( a new type of migration, family re-gathering or illegal).
According to Robert Cohen’s well-known written work ‘Contested Domains: Debates in International Labour Studies’, during the post-war period, the majority of the Western countries were encouraging the whole immigration process due to the lack in labour force.
In general, except refugee immigration, the events that took place were due mainly...
...Is immigration “good” for British business?
In the most industrialized countries of the world, the rapid increase of immigration has become a contentious issue. As immigration has a great impact on a country’s economy, its benefits and costs have been hotly debated. This essay will focus the economic effects of immigration into United Kingdom.
Large-scale immigration has been a essential factor that contributes to a healthy UK economy and society and is encouraged to flow into UK since a new UK immigration policy published in 1997(D.Colemanand R.Rowthorn,2004 ). According to the office for National Statistics, the net immigration- immigration minus emigration to the UK increased to 237,000 in 2007 (2008). Supporters of immigration will often point to the good impacts of immigration, such as fiscal advantage, increased gross domestic product per head and available supply of labor, while opponents of immigration argue that large-scale immigration will compete with native-born workers in the labor market, displace some natives from jobs and lower their wages.
The remainder of this paper is to evaluate the impacts of immigration on British business. It is divided into three sections, the impacts of immigration on wages, on employment and on growth.
My great-grandfather told me once, “When I was still young, in my peak years of 20s, everything I needed to go to the America is to know how to read.” He did know how to read very well, but he was a wealthy young man and had no reasons to leave the Ukraine. At that time, like today, the biggest two reasons people are migrating to the United States is because of the poor standard of living and religious pressure of the government. Unfortunately, in most cases; religion was just another excuse to come to this great country. The United States is based on immigrants and those people influence a great deal on the economy and development of the country itself.
Most people don't know the percentage of legal and illegal immigrants. The number is always changing, but it is larger than ever before. The higher standard of living in the USA is what drives many immigrants, yet, this country is the best. We always see on television illegal immigrants who are trying to cross the boarders between United States and Mexico. The US does send some illegal people back. However, this country benefits from illegal immigrant because businesses pay them the lowest wages that American citizens would not work for.
At the end of the year, the taxes we usually get back from the government, well, illegal immigrants don’t get them. Also, factors like vocation...
