Synopsis

Immigration and Migration by Rayna Bailey, Lorenzo A. Trujillo

From rioting by immigrants in France to protests against illegal immigration in the United States, the topic of immigration has made headlines all over the world recently. Immigration and Migration helps put this issue in perspective. This insightful book discusses the many reasons people choose to immigrate or migrate to other countries, such as to escape poverty and seek employment opportunities, as refugees from war, or for political asylum. The financial, cultural, and social contributions made by immigrants and migrants to their adopted countries are also discussed, as well as the problems associated with immigration, including difficulties assimilating immigrants into existing communities, racial biases, and entering countries illegally.After presenting a brief look back through the history of migration and its importance to emerging civilizations, the book focuses on immigration and migration in five countries: the United States, Mexico, France, the Philippines, and South Africa. An overview is presented of each country's immigration policies and how they have evolved to the policies in place in 2007. In addition, specific examples of immigration and migration in each country are discussed, such as the impact of immigrants or migrants on the country and its citizens, and any changes to the country's immigration policies caused by immigration or migration.
