If my people and my wife's family's people had not moved here, this place would not be a developing part of the world, we became a powerful nation because of the contributions of the people who came with their skills, work ethics, and new ideas. Sometimes the ideas started here when one group met another and the cultures together added up to more than either one alone. Why leave people in poverty where they cannot succeed when they can come here and be part of the part of the world that works?
Many developed countries have aging populations whose costs for health care and retirement are rapidly growing. Birth rates are not high enough to keep up with the need for more workers to support the elderly. Increased immigration from developing countries can provide the workers needed to support them. It also helps relieve population pressure in developing countries, as well as an increased income in those countries as remittances are sent back by workers who have emigrated.
Mass migration generally occurs when conditions become intolerable and hopeless. Children of upper-class individuals in developing countries have usually already been sent off to college in a developed country before things turn ugly in their home country. Alternately, they may decide they simply do not want to return to a place where living conditions may not be as cosmopolitan as those in the developed country where they obtained their education. Either way, by the time they have graduated, they may be unwilling to return home, and are then old and educated enough to support themselves alone. This leaves the current leadership without forward-thinking successors, and the probable negative effects of that would trickle down relatively fast for the general population. Before a mass migration of the general population occurred, there would be a more subtle migration of people who could afford to leave. This would leave even fewer people capable of progressive governance, resulting in even worse conditions for the people who did not migrate.
When the population of a country goes up very fast, there are more people there than there are jobs, housing, and food available. Instead of encouraging or discouraging mass migration, we should help to improve the situation of those living in developing countries. You can't blame someone from wanting to escape a horrible life. We should try to improve it.
I support immigration, and I support the rights of immigrants. Many people who migrate to a new country are looking for a better life for themselves and their families. All people deserve that chance. I don't feel that people can own land, or dictate who can and who can't live there. I believe that the earth is for all people and animals to share jointly together. I believe that all people should be treated with respect and dignity.
Mass migrations hurt the countries that get flooded with the immigrants. These countries aren't prepared to take on the added influx of people. It hurts the developing country too, because their growth and development depends on having a population to boost its economy and help it to restructure. People want to go where they can have a better life, but sometimes it's at a cost that they might not really realize.
Mass migration from developing countries to developed countries helps the less-developed countries in many ways. First, the migrants send much of their income back to their extended families, helping them climb from poverty and build their own industries. Second, there is less burden on the developing nations' infrastructure, as the people have moved away.
Mass migrations to developed countries are not good. The sudden influx of large amounts of workers that are usually desperate for work creates lots of unemployment in the population that is "native" to the developed country. Unless the developed country is in an economic boom and industry is desperate for workers because they have so much work to do, mass migration should be controlled or regulated.
Mass migrations from developing countries occur when conditions in those countries force people to leave to find a better life, a better income and a better future for their families. This tends to overwhelm the infrastructure of the country where they are going. A better idea may be to support the population in their original country.
Soy inmigrante, de decendencia inmigrante,
Como inmigrante, sali de mi pais por politica, sali del pais que me acogio para otro para sentirme un poco como en mi pais de nacimiento.
La slucion no esta en ir como nmigrante ilisito y solicitar derechos que no reclaman en el suyo.
Las fabricas de EEUU, por ejemplo, se las llevaron para paises latino americanos,empezaron en los finales de los 80..y quedaron muchos sin trabajo y no detubo la inmigracion, hoy en dia porlos tratados, se siguen llevando fabricas para paises 3er mundista y hay mas desempleo en EEUU y no se detiene la inmigracion,
Recien llego a costa rica, La Boston Scientific" y cerraron en Miami, cientos de desempleados y no se detiene la inmigracion....
Porque si tantas fabricas manufactureras, han salido de EEUU y eso crece el decempleo, y no detiene la inmigracion? Porque...esos paises includos los EEUU, fabrican los mismos productos en China Comunista, Donde los obreros trabajan por casi nada...y ya Honduras no fabrica Ropa ni otros productos, Ni Mejico partes Elecretronicas, y otros productos asi todos los paises pobres...Nos Nicaraguences inmigran para costa rica donde son tratados como gentes de tercera, los mejicanos..tratan a los que inmigran a su pais como no personas, pues los esclavizan prostituyen roban o matan y todos quieren Inmigrar a los EEUU(Pais es cual odian y desprecian en su gran mayoria)
El problema esta en los gobiernos los de derechas y los de izquierda...Ellos son o se hacen mas ricos mientras el pueblo cada ves mas pobre.pidan y exijas lo qs derechos y reclamos que hacen en los EEUU.
Exijan romper relaciones comerciales y de inmigrantes Chinos, que regrecen las fabricas a los paises de origen...
A lot of Mexicans come over the border illegally to work in the US. I am NOT saying every Mexican is an illegal, but there are some. Basically it puts strain on the country's economy- some people are paid under the table and thus not taxed. Or they could possibly mess up census reports. My philosophy is thus: If you're a legal immigrant, welcome to the country. If you're illegal, go home.
If mass migration was to occur and all the people headed to countries where they thought they could have a better life and become financially sound, not only would they be leaving behind the help they could provide in bettering their own country but they would put the stability of the developed countries at risk too. The reason that a developed country can run with efficiency is because it is at its optimal productivity level where it is using the right amount of resources to churn out the just enough to gain an upper hand in the economy. Yes more people means that there can be a higher productivity level, but this is not true if the people who are being hired by industries are not experienced enough or educated enough to be able to handle the position. This will have a burdening effect where the society will be going beyond its means of trying to educate a greater mass of people, expending money on that and losing out on how efficiently it ran before it had to adapt these tactics. If the same mass of people who wanted to migrate stayed in their own country and got the help they needed from already developed countries, then they too could rise to the same level as that of developed countries promoting advancement throughout the world and moving forward than just having to rely on specific respectable identities. They would help in lessening competition as they would create something where everyone could think they would be riding the same boat on.
Immigrants from developing countries seek employment and a better standard of life. What happens however can often be similar to the problems they tried to escape. Mass migration means that more people are fighting for limited jobs meaning many people remain unemployed. The fact that they can't make any money means they end up living in similar poverty to that which they tried to escape.
A citizen living a normal lifestyle in a developed country has a much larger negative "footprint" on the ecosystem of the earth and therefore the fewer people that lead such high impact lifestyles means the less damage is done to the earth and its atmosphere. Lifestyles in developing countries are much more sustainable and of a lower impact.
Immigration is an issue facing our society that is of paramount importance. In an age where global terrorism presents a real and dangerous challenge for our society, controlled immigration practices are more essential than ever. A balance must be reached, however, to continue to uphold the open door principles that make up the cornerstone of America. No doubt, America has prospered over her history thanks to the countless contributions of immigrants. A controlled immigration policy will allow for the government to keep tabs on who enters our nation and what their desired aims truly are. Additionally, it allows for our society to bring in the best and the brightest that will make meaningful contributions and adopt the American way of life. When a nation simply accepts mass numbers of individuals with few or no skills and who refuse to assimilate, that nation looses its own identity.
People who migrate from developing to developed countries are migrating because their conditions are really bad and they can not find work. When they come to a developed country, they are willing to work at very low wages and therefore this ends up skewing the pay and taking away jobs from those who have lived there.
Mass migration of people from developing to developed countries denies both parties the advantages of the migration. The sheer volume of people from the developing countries overwhelms the limited opportunities to assimilate into the culture and economy that are readily available. This leads to segregation of the new population and resulting misunderstandings on both sides of the equation. The advantage that new cultural blending could provide are lost and the new migrants are denied any real opportunity to contribute to the existing society in a positive manner. Instead their position becomes a negative drag to both parties, creating friction and economic chaos.
If there are too many immigrants moving to a developed country, the pattern seems to be that they form their own communities in that country where they are with people and food and customs that are comfortable. That slows down their assimilation into the new country. It is much better if smaller numbers come into the developed countries, and then earn money and skills that they can take back to their home country and help their original country develop and improve life there.
Mass migration to developed countries overburdens the systems and society of the developed country. All of the people who are migrating have to be accommodated for. At the same time, life must go on, as close to usual as possible, for those already living in the developed country. Immigrants must receive health care, jobs, education and continuous food, shelter, and clothing. The communities that the immigrants have to live in must be able to communicate with them and respond to their needs. The introduction of an immigrant to a developed country, here and there, is far less taxing on the community and its resources, than a mass migration would be. A mass migration means an overhaul of the way that the society in which they are entering operates.
This is as the limited amount of skilled workers in developing countries, once educated, move abroad to developed countries. This worsens the poverty cycle as doctors and trained workers who are needed in their country of origin, move to better living conditions. Instead of mass migration, improved medical facilities and medical staff should be put in place to support developing countries, to fix the problem instead of escape and worsening the issue.
While individuals profit a good deal from migrating from a developing nation to a developed nation, the long term effects of mass migration negatively impact all concerned. Developed nations provide many opportunities, but these opportunities eventually become filled at which point an overabundance of immigrants exist. When this occurs, a mass migration away from developed nations comes about.
First of all mass migration could put a large burden on the country that is already developed. For instance if the poverty population was already high and those migrating did not have someway to provide for themselves it would cause a financial burden for some. For the most part those from a underdeveloped country do not have the means to prosper in an already developed country with out a lot of hard work and drive. It could be very difficult for a migrant to get adjusted to the way a developed country works. Secondly...if a mass migration from the developing country was to happen who is going to finish the developing?
Immigration from poor nations to rich ones does not particularly help the poorer nations. It provides more income to most who immigrate, who may send remittances home. However, those who immigrate are typically the better educated (like doctors and teachers) or more affluent (business owners who flee with their family and moneys before Communism or populism take over). South Africa has a medical crisis because so many of their doctors and nurses have left the country. The Philippines and Haiti have a similar medical professional shortage, as their best and brightest left the nation for the United States. This impoverishes then nation. Even remittances are of little help in the long run, as those who receive it become minimalist survivors, waiting for each payment instead of building up their own businesses. And importing a billion people into the developed world only strains their infrastructure while not correcting cultural factors that led to their poverty. Dropping Yemeni herders into Europe will not make them more willing to educate their daughters, as 90% of them refuse to do. Dropping Somalis who commit female genital mutilation on their daughters are unlikely to stop the day after they arrive in Canada; in fact, some face charges for sending daughters home for the procedure. (Let's not forget honor killings, too.) The better solution is to create stronger rule of law, requirements for education for both genders, build up health infrastructure like vaccination distribution and hospitals, roads and sanitation projects. Improve the physical and social infrastructure for these countries, and then they can develop on their own. This also eases any cultural infighting and lets them move into modernity on their own terms, instead of demanding that they become exactly like the host country or demanding that the host nation absorb those ill-prepared and often unwilling to adapt to the new land.
No, I disagree that mass migration from developing to developed countries is a good thing. A country has been built upon the certain set and limited source of natural resources. And when there is mass migration the developed countries would have some very serious problems. The government mayn't be able to provide the requisite the social services to the poor. There may not be adequate food grains,health care,health & hygiene and safe drinking water and other problems like unemployment and housing are other major issues which the government has to face.
It could lead to unbalance of international economy and ruin the growth of developing countries. The gap between the rich and poor will become much larger. The main advantage that developing countries have is cheap labor cost. If people migrate from developing countries to ones that are developed, the wage level of developing countries may increase. Also, a majority of those who are able to migrate are the wealthy or those with an education, which would further hinder the growth of the developing country.
Developing countries need to be worked on. Migration will cause nothing but over population to the developing country. There really needs to be a global outreach effort. Developing countries need help and if each country in the area tries to contribute to the outreach efforts so it doesn't become a burden on one country. Unless a country or area becomes unlivable there is no real reason to abandon it.
By simply migrating away from their developing countries, these people prevent the growth of themselves as a nation and as a culture. They adapt to whatever culture they move to, without thought to what makes them as a nation special. Without enduring their own development, these nations remain far behind other countries. There is no chance for diversity.
While I am proud to be an American and live in a country where I am virtually free to make every decision in the outcome of my life, I find it rather disheartening to know that with each and every day that passes, I am living in a country where people are moving in every day and taking away social security, healthcare, and other resources that my children will most likely never see. While I am not against people coming to our country, I am 100% against people turning their backs on their own countries. I do not see why developing countries cant focus more time and energy in being successful, rather than running to our country for support all of the time. And unfortunately, our country always feels like it NEEDS to provide that helping hand to everyone...when they cant even provide it to our own people half the time...
Mass migration from developing countries to developed countries stretches resources to the breaking point in the host countries, as human services are not prepared for such an influx of needy people. An overpopulation of migrants that are unable to find work, speak the language and generally assimilate places an undue tax burden on the natural citizens of the host country.
