Migration is a important topic that is argued and discussed by many people. Many people all over the world emmigrate to other places throughout their life times, and with leaving their country, they encounter problems, and these are normal causes that come with migrating.

Migration just doesnt occur in the U.S, it happens throughout the world. According to, 20% of immigrants go to the U.S, 33% go to Europe, 7% go to other developed countries. All of these immigrants have something in common, they all leave because of a problem or for a better oppurtunity. Some of the causes in this day of age would be, for money, housing, job oppurtunity, or for family causes, like marriage or social norms in a area. An example of this would be in Scotland, in Edinburg, they have a vast population of Japanese citizens that immagrated over of some of the reasons that were stated above.

With the causes of migration, a immigrant's situation could either go well, or bad. With everything in life, there are a few diffirent types of outcomes. For one, immigrants provied good cheep talent into the work pool, they provide diffirent languages, and skills that we always cant ususlly find here. They are also willing to do cheep hard work for a low pay that a native wouldnt usually take. However, there is also bad social problems, and clicks are formed. New immagrants are often exploited and taken advantage of.
