Immigration refers to the arrival of new individuals into a habitat or population. Many different purposes encourage people to move around other countries. Young population usually  travel  to rich places in order to develop their careers and carry out new projects.  Other reasons are based on a relationship or  family reunificacion.

However, escape from poverty is the main push factor. Broadly speaking, it can be said that immigration owes its existence to  people´s  desire  of improving  their life  in any sense. Immigration has become an extremely hot issue lately.

Currently, Europe and North America are among the continents which host the largest number of immigrants.

The United Kindom and Germany have seen major immigration since the end of World War II because many foreign workers were brought in  to help rebuild those countries  and many of them stayed.  Nowadays, at least three  generations are integrated in these countries with successful results.

From my point of view,  immigration has many positive aspects. The mixture  of languages and cultures enrich any society. Multiculturalism makes people open- minded, tolerant and approachable.

But, there are also drawbacks that come up with the massive illegal immigration. For instance,  illegal immigration from Africa is growing  in Spain, particularly in the Canary Islands.

This is a huge problem because the people who arrive are victims of the mob and corrupt goverments.      Furthermore,  they are uneducated and need training and basic skills in order to get a proper job.

In my opinion, foreign policies have a main role and the power to improve the situation in developing countries. In spite of this, there are  still countries without democracy and civil rights. In conclusion, there is a great deal of work to be done  if  we really want to   provide  welfare for the people who live in poorer countries. It  will be a daunting challenge in the near future.

    It looks like January is the busiest season for an “Immigration attorney in the US”. I’m very curious if this is the case with others. I suspect the reason I’m always busy in January is because people are getting their refund checks. All year long I offer payment options, but I just don’t get the same response as January. If you know of other ideas please do not hesitate to contact me.
