In this essay, I will talk about the history of immigration to the United States and how it has positively affected the United States today. History of Immigration As many of us may know, the first indigenous people to come to America were people who had crossed a land bridge that connected Asia to North America, although, it wasn’t until the late 15th century that Europeans had discovered the “New World”. Many people that had immigrated to the United States had come here for religious freedom and economic opportunities during the early 1600s. Although, “It was expensive for Europeans to cross over to the American Colonies. To obtain passage, many poorer British and Germans worked for a fixed number of years for an employer who purchased an indenture (a sort of contract) from a sea captain who brought young people over.
Nowadays, they're more likely to come from Asia and Africa. 11.1 million unauthorized immigrants live in the United States to this day, and the overwhelming majority of those come from Latin America and the Caribbean, but why do people all over the world migrate to the United States? Immigrants choose to come to the United States for various reasons, such as to live in freedom, to practice their religion freely, to escape poverty or oppression, and to make better lives for themselves and their children if they have any. Some immigrants come to the United States because of employment opportunities. After they get here, immigrants start contributing to the economy of the United States.
There were cultural and economic motives for imperialism. First economic, Many countries were industrialized in 1900s, and they needed a lot of materials that they did not have. In order not to depend on others, which nobody wanted, many strong countries started conquering territories and had the necessary materials. Also, followed by the industrialization, population grew as quickly as never before. New jobs were needed and people who were unemployed, left to other countries to find jobs.As a result, Europeans left their home countries in record numbers in the 1880s.
Despite more than 1 million farms being claimed during this under the Homestead Act, areas such as the Imperial Valley of California consolidated small farms into commercial enterprises during this same period, and rural areas simply could not keep up with urban areas in terms of growth. This growth in urban areas is the primary way in which the United States urbanized during this time. The United States’ industrialization came as a result of technological innovations and immigration. During this time period, millions of so-called New Immigrants flooded into the United States from Southern and Eastern Europe, primarily through Ellis Island and Angel Island. These immigrants lived, for large part, in ethnic enclaves located in large cities such as New York.

However, there are three main effects that follow regarding high rate of immigration into those more developed countries. The first effect that happens when there are too many migrants moving to settle down in one country is overpopulation issue. According to Nahle, by being overpopulated means that people in that country or that area consume too many limited resources, including natural objects like forest, facilities, or nonrenewable energy that would run out in the next few decades (2003). When all of the resources gone and people cannot meet their demands, the society might not survive.

According to the United States of America for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (USA for UNHCR) (2014), there are 16.7 million refugees around the planet. Due to the increase of refugees and asylum-seekers around the planet, the issue regarding the disadvantages outweighing the advantages of the acceptance of refugees regarding a host country’s prosperity is debatable. For the purpose of this essay, the term refugee refers to those who fled the country of origin and are not able to return due to persecution, war and violence(The Human Rights Education Associates, 2002), whereas the term prosperity may refer to the countries’ wealth and the happiness of the citizen (Making It Magazine, 2012). This essay will discuss whether or not the acceptance of refugees will threaten a host country’s prosperity through deliberating two disadvantages and one advantage, namely refugees may become a burden on host countries, may threaten the security of the host countries, and may stimulate economic growth. Firstly, host countries or communities may beeconomically and socially burdened with the increase in refugees.
