Understanding of immigration

General theories behind immigration

.One theory of immigration distinguishes between push factors and pull factors.^ Early manifests frequently do not offer enough information to distinguish between one Katie Walsh from Ireland and another Katie Walsh from Ireland, making it very difficult to pinpoint early dates of immigration.
  • Immigration Photos and Pictures 15 January 2010 9:14 UTC www.maggieblanck.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[6] Push factors refer primarily to the motive for emigration from the country of origin. In the case of economic migration (usually labour migration), differentials in wage rates are prominent. .If the value of wages in the new country surpasses the value of wages in one’s native country, he or she may choose to migrate as long as the travel costs are not too high.^ Since the terrorist activities of 9/11, however, the U.S. government and Department of Homeland Security has implemented rigid new immigration rules covering who may enter the country and for how long.

^ ABSTRACT: Illegal immigration has been the focus of much debate in receiving countries, but little is known about what drives individual attitudes towards illegal immigrants.

.The main problem with push-and-pull theories is three-fold: first, they state the obvious (i.e., people from poorer places will seek to go to richer ones); second, they are unable to explain the emergence of migrant flows (if push and pull were the only things in existence, people from the poorest countries would migrate to the richest ones, when in reality such flows are well-nigh non-existent); third, they are unable to explain the stability of the emerging patterns of migration (i.e., once a flow from country A to country B is established, it will stay on for a relatively long time, even if the initial conditions that had given the push and pull to the migration are not there any more (as the case of the German case of the Gastarbeiter, or guest worker program shows.^ (Sep 2006) Voted YES on establishing a Guest Worker program.

.Emigration and immigration are sometimes mandatory in a contract of employment: religious missionaries, and employees of transnational corporations, international non-governmental organizations and the diplomatic service expect, by definition, to work 'overseas'.
