What is Immigration?
Immigration is the action of a non-native person settling permanently in a country. Many factors such as war, religious persecution, famine, poverty and natural disasters can lead to a rise in immigration. Individuals leave their birthplace in search of permanent residence in a country that can offer them economic opportunity and basic human rights.
