Immigrations Ethical Issues

The immigration process can be described as people’s movement in a country that they aren’t natives so as to settle there, particularly as future citizens or permanent residents. (Dinnerstein & Reimers, 2009). The immigrants are driven to depart their native land for different reasons, including a need for economic prosperity, a nonexistence of access to local resources, family reunification, escape from prejudice, natural disaster or conflict, or just the desire to change one’s environment. The UN estimated in 2013 that there were about 231,522,215 immigrants on earth, which is 3.25 percent of the worldwide population.
