Nowadays, immigration is very common. In a single place we can find people from all over the world. Buddhists, Catholics, homosexual, heterosexual and all kinds of people are learning to live with each other as a community by respecting opinions. This is great because before this didn´t happen, but today with all the globalization and technology people have the chance to see different cultures of the world and be more open minded, this is one of the main reasons immigration is so common now. Not all parts of the world are like this, but USA is known to be a country with a great capacity of tolerance and the acceptance of diversity. I think is great that people search for this, that people look for justice, a place where they can be accepted. A fact is that not everyone is the same, we are all different from each other and USA is a country that has acknowledged this and has looked for ways to ensure their citizens equality, this is why it remains one of the most popular countries in the world as an immigrant destination. Immigrants are what help make USA be the country that it is, a multicultural society, mostly because the majority of people in the United States have some sort of origin from a different country. Being a community full of people from other places makes USA a country of many cultures, traditions and ideas, a country in which people constantly learn from each other and also learn that we don´t need to think and act the same way to live in the same place, it´s just a matter of respect for others so that this way other people can respect me. Lots of citizens complain by saying that newcomers are a threat for the economy; it is known that they take jobs, but they also create them. For example, a homosexual women from Colombia goes to USA searching for a place where her sexual orientation can be accepted, she opens a small coffee shop to sustain herself and her couple, the business happens to be a success, ten years later she has...
...1.Should American encourage immigration?
Immigration policy affects all aspects of society. Regardless of status, immigrants have always played a central role in the life and growth of a nation.An Immigrant is a person who has citizenship in one country but who enters a different country to set up a permanent residence. Just entering another country does not make you an immigrant. In order to be an immigrant you must have citizenship in one country, and you must have gone to a different country with the specific intention of living there. Immigration to the US is highly competitive and, depending on an individual’s situation, can be a lengthy and complicated process. Immigration procedures and requirements are broadly divided into three categories: those attempting to immigrate on the basis of a family relationship, those attempting to immigrate for employment, and those entering the US for the purposes of study. Lawful immigration greatly benefits both America and the lawful immigrants, while unlawful immigration presents challenges to America’s ability to protect its borders and preserve its sovereignty.
Immigration has always been a formidable engine of economic and demographic growth for the United States.Many immigrants are natural entrepreneurs, establishing companies, creating jobs, and driving innovation. Well-educated and highly-trained foreign workers are inventive...
...Conclusion Report for Immigration Research Question:
The purpose of this social science research was to indicate and answer the imposing research question of “What are the factors and motivations an individual considers when choosing a country to move to?” After conducting a questionnaire and using other reliable sources to collect primary and secondary data, I can confirm that from the data we gathered that my hypothesis that the factors and motivations which an individual considers consists of a developed countries attached characteristics such as economic prosperity and political stability is true and supported by our findings. Using ten determining inquiries, we identified certain outliers which are of most importance to those who are choosing to immigrate.
From the questionnaire and secondary data, we are able to recognize which regions of the world most immigrants emigrate from. Our questionnaire came upon a drastic majority with ninety percent of the participants emigrating from Asia, which would include the Middle East. Our primary data coincides accurately with the secondary data received specifying that Asia is the world’s leading source of immigration, especially in Canada. This would lead to the notion that most immigrants come from less developed countries and societies since a large majority of countries in Asia are labelled as either newly-industrialized or developing. Moreover, eighty percent of participants claimed they...
..."The People of Canada have worked hard to build a country that opens its doors to include all, regardless of their differences; a country that respects all, regardless of their differences; a country that demands equality for all, regardless of their differences." (Paul Martin). Immigration started in the mid 1700s and is still continuing today. It plays an important role in developing Canada's economy, as well as shaping the nation into a multicultural nation.Immigration has become a significant role in building Canada's economy, by providing continuous growth in the labour force, constructing a strong economy, and becoming a diverse nation.
Immigration provides constant growth in the labour force which is helps the Canadian labour market. As many immigrants come into Canada, there is an increase in taking up jobs in the Canadian labour force. Immigrants make up 70% of the Canadian labour force and this number is expected to increase higher; maybe even up to 100% in the future . A great portion of the labour force population is taken up by the immigrants who have provided their need in the Canadian labour market for growth and success. Immigrants who come into Canada are skilled workers, (entrepreneurs, investors, professionals, etc) or are unskilled workers (farmers, plumbers, electricians, labourers, etc.).

...The religious landscape currently exhibited in Australia has been developed and has fluctuated significantly through the impact of immigration since the end of World War II, 1945. In 1947, just 0.5 % of the population claimed to be non-Christian and 0.3 % claimed to have no religion, thus promoting the fact that Christianity was the most prominent religion in Australia. The end of the War stimulated much immigration from Europe, as did the Vietnam War in the 1970s. Such organisations as the NSW Ecumenical council and The National Council of Churches have assisted in the ecumenical movements and immigration as a whole has resulted in increased interfaith dialogue between a diverse religious landscape that is Australia.
The end of World War Two was a major stimulus for the immigration and diversity in regards to religion that was about to change Australia. Thousands of immigrants came to Australia from their war-torn countries seeking peace and a new beginning. The Assisted Passage scheme was put into operation in order to help British migrants reach Australia, which was then altered to welcome immigrants from any European country. The White Australia policy which was in place at this time was reflected through the immigration into Australia coming from Europe only.
As a result of the significantly large number of immigrants from Europe, the population of Roman Catholics rose nearly 6% between the...
...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.
There are pros and cons of migration for...
...Title: Mexican Immigration
Specific Purpose: To inform classmates on the causes and effects of Mexican immigration
Thesis Statement: The causes of Mexican immigration is a combination of "push/pull" factors, where conditions in Mexico push them out and opportunity in the U.S. pulls them in, where they actually become an asset to the U.S. economy.
Attention-getting material: Imagine waking up everyday to hunger, hopelessness, and despair, knowing that you cannot
do anything about it, knowing that next door there is opportunity, and that the grass is greener on that side, and the only option is to stay where you are and starve or find a way to make it to the other side. This scenario is one that millions of Mexicans face or have faced, and the issue of Mexican immigration has once again become a hot topic, after 9/11 and during this conservative fever that seems to be sweeping the nation.
Credibility material: For my speech I have used six credible sources three books and three Internet sources for statistics. Jorge Castaneda Mexico's former foreign minister wrote one of the books that I used, the other two books were written by Dale Maharidge and Andres Oppenheimer, Mr. Oppenhiemer is a columnist for the Miami Herald. My Internet research was gathered from PBS.org the Census Bureau, and The National Catholic Reporter respectively.
PREVIEW: Throughout my speech I will be explaining the causes of...
...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.
