Problematic Aspects of Emigration to Emigrants and the Host Country Emigrants move from their home nations to begin a new life in another, yet once they reach their host countries, they face challenges that they never anticipated. More often than not, many of these emigrants have endured hardships of all forms in their home nations, but most of them are treated to a surprise when they realize that what awaits them in their new home nation is far much worse than what they are running from (Dalla, 2009). Consequently, emigrants pose some challenges to their host countries. This paper discusses two aspects that could be problematic to an emigrant as well as those that can be problematic to the host country. To start with, emigrants are bound to be surrounded by a myriad of legal problems. According to Dalla (2009) emigrants do not enjoy the full benefits of law compared to their native counterparts. For instance, if an emigrant losses their job, they may not be able to claim benefits. This is because emigrants are associated with odd jobs. In addition, they are bound to face the challenge of always having to look over their shoulders owing to the long time they have to wait to be eligible. In the U.S for instance, refugees have to wait for ninety days before they can access healthcare services (Dalla, 2009). Secondly, there is the aspect of social support. Social interaction is crucial part of fitting into a new society, and its absence implies a feeling of isolation, discrimination or even worse, depression. This aspect is more problematic, especially to emigrants that migrate to a new country without close friends or family members. With neither close friends nor family members to direct them around, they are likely to feel isolated, and lack social support as newcomers (Dalla, 2009). Consequently, they lack networks necessary to fit into the job market, and they opt for odd jobs. On the side of the host countries, the issue of emigrations may be problematic in...
...The immigrationproblem has always been one of the most important debated issues in Turkey, especially after1950s. It makes big cities more crowded and it also brings many problems together. These problems include economic, social, and environmental issues. Particularly Istanbul is in a great danger with the huge rate of immigration it takes. The city has not enough area for sheltering its continuous growing population as it has not also enough resources to feed them. It is very unhealthy to enlarge as rapidly as Istanbul with immigration because it brings economic, environmental, and social problems.
Istanbul is the most urbanized and crowded city of Turkey. For almost 20 years, it takes internal migration with its economic and social opportunities; therefore, the city, which becomes one of the urbanized cities around the world, grows in an uncontrolled manner day by day. The population of Istanbul, which was not even 1 million in 1950, is now over 14 million. After a rapid industrialization, a high level of immigration is normal and unavoidable for cities and it has some advantages as providing labor force but the migration to Istanbul get over the limits. According to Istanbul Governorship’s data, over 62% of people who live in Istanbul were born outside of the city. Since it is common that Turkish families are crowded, most of immigrant families have more...
...Illegal Immigration and the Problems That Come With It
There are problems with our immigration system that our country needs to address. Even though some items are cheaper because of the cheaper wages paid to illegal immigrants, we need to take action on illegal immigration because of the jobs being taken by them and they are a drain on our state and government benefits. Our country strongly needs to put more security along the boarders and clean out this country of all illegal immigrants. Our country needs to close the boarders, do a clean sweep of the country, round up all the illegal immigrants, and deport them back to their country.
People will argue against me on this point about how immigrants bring culture to this country. How they help to keep the cost of some items down because of the cheaper wages that are paid to them. They will also argue that they help to produce more crops for our country. Some will say this is inhumane and I do not have any compassion for them. Others will say that this is going against their civil rights and I’m going against what this country is founded on.
First and foremost a legal immigrant is someone here on a work visa, green card and so on coming to this country. I do not have a problem with legal immigrants. I do understand that people want a change of life, pursuit of freedom, a better life for their family, but they need to do this legally....
There is a clear link between the history of migration to America and economics. At first, migration to America was very expensive and migrants were usually slave or indentured labourers. However, as travel became easier, many more people try to migrate. This continued throughout 19th century and early 20th century, but then war and global depression slowed down and even reversed migratory trends. After the Second World War, the number increased again.
This is an obvious fact that migration is one of the most significant problems in our world nowadays. People always want to be better and they can sacrifice anything to get what they want even migrating illegally to a richer country. This tendency has created a burden and made many unhealthy influences to our society. There are many reasons that can affect the migrant’s choices especially economic variation.
We can have a look at the history. After the discovery of America, the movement of migrants from all over the world to this country was still small because it was too expensive to travel such a long distance across the Atlantic Ocean. Chronologically, the decreasing of transport expense and the gradually improvement of living standard in migrant’s countries have made way to the new boom of migration. For example, in 1975 around 125000 people in Vietnam migrated to America. Apparently, we can not deny that it also be affected by war but economic growth was one of the most...
The author's stresses that the main problem of immigration and the changes it is causing in America culture can be approached from many different angles. Which he says could America can be redefined as a multicultural society instead of as a nation; or the permanent establishment of affirmative action programs for immigrants based on their race; or the town in Texas that declared Spanish its official language; or the thousands of Hispanics at an international soccer match in Los Angeles who booed and threw garbage at the American team; or the decline in educational and environmental standards in areas dominated by Hispanics; or the Hmong people from Laos who bring shamans and witch doctors into hospital rooms; or the customs of voodoo and animal sacrifice and forced marriage and female genital mutilation that have been imported into this country (America) by recent immigrants; or the pushing aside of Christianity in our public life to give equal respect to non-Western religions; or the evisceration of American history in our schools because our white-majority American past is no longer seen as representative of our newly diverse population; or the vast numbers of Muslims established in cities throughout this country who sympathize with the Muslim terrorists and dream of turning America into an Islamic state; or our own leaders who, even after September 11, keep telling us that the Muslims are all patriotic and tolerant, keep...
A few months after Singapore was founded, the population began to grow very quickly. By 1821, Singapore's population had increased to about 5000. The main cause of this increase was immigration. Singapore in the 19th century attracted many people from different parts of the world. Businessmen and traders came here to trade while others came to look for jobs.
At that time, more men came to Singapore than women. This was especially so for the Chinese and Indians. Most of the Chinese and Indian immigrants did not intend to stay long in Singapore, so they did not bring their womenfolk along. This meant that the Chinese and Indians could not set up families here even though there were large numbers of them.
However, unlike the Chinese and Indians, the Malays and Europeans brought their families along when they came to Singapore. Thus, the number of Malay and European men was almost equal to the number of Malay and European women. While most Europeans returned home after they had completed their work here, most of the Malays settled with their families in Singapore.
Types Of Labourers
Many people came to Singapore to work because there were a lot of jobs in Singapore. Men were needed for jobs such as the clearing land for plantations, the building of roads, and the building of houses and offices. They were also needed to work in vegetable gardens and plantations owned by the rich planters. Anyone who was willing to...

Illegal immigration, a fervently debated issue in the United States, is defined as the migration of people across national borders, or the residence of foreign nationals in a country, in a way that is illegal according to the immigration laws of the destination country. Because the United States is such an attractive country, for it provides opportunity and prosperity, many people who live in less fortunate countries legally and illegally migrate to the United States. Illegal immigration causes a great ordeal, because many politicians and economists argue that illegal immigrants are an economic burden to the United States. On the other hand, some economists claim that illegal immigrants do not actually hurt the economy but they help it.
In the article “Illegal Aliens a Drain on U.S. Taxpayers, Report Says” Writer R. Cort Kirkwood argues that Illegal aliens are largely poor, uneducated and drain the welfare and public education systems, which causes a burden on the economy. Because most immigrants don’t have papers to work, they have to take jobs, which pay less then minimum wage causing them to live in poverty. Kirkwood writes,
“’according to the CIS (Center for Immigration Studies) …Illegals live in poverty at high rates because they earn much less money compared to Americans. The average household income for illegals is...
...Immigration Options for Foreign Managers and Executives
Let’s say you are the CEO of a top international company and now want to come to the U.S. to oversee a new U.S. branch office that just opened up in San Diego, California. Sounds like a legitimate reason to come to the U.S. but determining the best immigration strategy may not always be easy. For example, many people will think that the U.S. company can just petition an H-1B visa for the CEO. However, it is a little known fact that many CEOs do not actually qualify for an H-1B visa. In fact, many executives and managers will not qualify for a H-1B visa because being a CEO/Manager is viewed as a more of a managerial occupation than a “specialty occupation”, which requires a college degree. For example, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg would not even qualify for an H-1B visa because he did not graduate with a Bachelor’s degree. Others may think the executive can come on a B-1 visa but a B-1 visa holder is not allowed to work in the U.S.
So what type of visa would be the best to bring over a multi-national executive or manager? Many companies and executives/managers go with the L visa. The L non-immigrant visa category is useful for international companies to bring foreign executives and managers to the United States on a temporary basis. The L visa is used to transfer employees from a foreign company to a “related” U.S. company. The maximum time period for L-1 classification is 7 years. It can...
