What is immigration?

"the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country."

Now that we know what the definition is, we may ask ourselves, "what exactly motivates one to migrate to another country?" Although there are infinite reasons as to why people decide to migrate to foreign lands. I will attempt to enlighten you and give you a better understanding of this reasoning.

In the United States, we have the privilege of having an abundance of resources at our disposal. However, we fail to realize that other countries do not always offer these privileges to it's people. Thus, we have a more difficult time empathizing with immigrants and their struggles. Foreigners migrate to the U.S. in search of a better life and opportunities they might've never had in their home lands.
