Discussion Contrary to popular belief, migrants are not diseased people; however, the actual process of migrating, depending on the conditions encountered, makes migrants particularly susceptible to physical, environmental, social and psychological problems.5 In short, the migration process makes migrants and refugees vulnerable. Infectious and communicable diseases may spread in conditions where health hygiene and sanitation are poor. Likewise, the incidence of non-communicable diseases may be distributed inequitably due to the stresses of migration and the lack of access to the necessary medical services both in the countries of origin and the receiving states. Psychosocial illnesses like anxiety and depression from traumatic experiences, for example war, may lead to migrants having problems with substance abuse.
Why did decide the United States imperialize land that wasn 't theirs after european immigrants came to America? Once immigrants came into the U.S there became less jobs available and caused some people to go bankrupt. People born in the United States looked for more land and jobs, so they decided to migrate west. The more immigrants that came into the U.S more people tried to find better places to live and. If there wouldn 't have been immigrants coming to America we would not have as much diversity as we do today and there could still be some land that Native Americans would still have today.
Why consider opposing viewpoints? "The only way in which a human being can make some approach to knowing the whole of a subject, is by hearing what can be said about it by persons of every variety of opinion, and studying all modes in which it can be looked at by every character of mind." - John Stuart Mill, British philosopher.

Therefore, there is an apparent dynamic system of constraints and barriers and an immigrant or refugee’s level of assimilation or acculturation in which suggests that as one becomes more familiar and integrated into their new environment, the constraints and barriers they face will not be as significant (Stodolska, 1998).
One misconception a lot of people make is that immigrants take jobs and opportunities away from Americans. What they don't know is that it’s actually quite the opposite. You may think that immigrants are taking your jobs, but I have the evidence to prove you wrong.

Critical analysis of push and pull factors of migration and with Also gendered migration Throughout human history migration has been part of human life.

The controversial issues concerning immigration have been debated since its considerable increase in the middle of the 20th century. Firstly, after the Second World War, strong economic growth in some European countries led to a vast influx of immigrants from the periphery of Europe into its centre. Secondly, the collapse of the Soviet Union was a far-reaching consequence of political and economic reforms as well as intra-European migration. Moreover, the incorporation into European Union of the post-Soviet countries facilitated the solution of easier immigration. Ceaseless flow across borders is a cogent reason for endless transformations in political, economic and cultural aspects in Europe.

On November 20, 2014 President Obama gave a speech to answer such questions with his immigration reform.
