What is Immigration  & Migration

Immigration (derived from Latin: migratio) is the act of foreigners passing or coming into a country for the purpose of permanent residence. Immigration is made for many reasons, including economic, political, family re-unification, or the wish to change one's surroundings voluntarily.

At present there are 200 million immigrants around the world and nearly 70.6 million are in Europe, 45.1 million in North America.

As per a Gallup survey it was discovered that roughly 700 million adults would like to migrate to another country permanently if they had the chance. Nearly one-quarter (24%) which translates to more than 165 million adults worldwide, named the United States as their desired future residence, while an additional 6.5% representing an estimated 45 million, chose Canada. The other top desired destination countries (those where an estimated 25 million or more adults would like to go) were predominantly European. A percentage of forty-five million adults named the United Kingdom or France as their desired destination, followed in order of preference by Spain, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and Australia.
