It is very hard to be able to say which factor had a greater impact because to an extent both factors had a huge impact as they coincided with one and other. And basically if you removed one or the other you wouldn’t end up with the same colonies and there is no way of knowing which colonies we would have gotten either. In my opinion I think that the economic factors outweighed the religious factors in colonization. I feel this way because a large number of immigrants migrated to the new colonies in search of a better life as the economy was stronger and possible living standards were better than their previous ones. Let’s not discredit those people who moved to the new colonies to be able to practice their own religion and have their own religious

The foundation indentured servitude laid for not only the economic advancement of Americans but also of immigrants has greatly benefitted the state. Without them, the Plymouth Colony and other early settlements would not have succeeded and turned into the colony of Massachusetts, which then developed great industry and became a leader for the country. Later on, indentured servitude was the reason immigrants were able to build such incredible communities in Massachusetts, all of which contribute something unique and wonderful back to the state that houses them. Indentured servants sacrificed countless years of their lives to the labor required to build Massachusetts, and the growth and success of our state is to show for
Finally, the citizens of America must allow millions of undocumented immigrants to continue living in the United States because they help shape the face of this grand nation. By its very nature of the principles in which it was founded, America, more than any other country on the face of the planet, has opened its borders for those in search of opportunities and promises of the “American Dream.” Every day, America welcomes millions of newcomers around the world, and many take advantage of this privilege because the United States has provided many immigrants with a variety of life options that they may not have had in other nations, such as educational resources. For example,” Saudi Arabia, the most profoundly gender-segregated nation on Earth,” has played

These millstones in his time have been tremendous accomplishments in our time. This giving us Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for years to come. All from the foundation he set for us while he was president.
However, by the late 1800s, Irish-Americans and Irish immigrants were making progress in climbing the social ladder in America, and much of their success can be attributed to how they represented themselves through popular media. As Miller states, “by the early twentieth century Irish-America was a relatively mature and exceptionally diverse society, enjoying some real prosperity, far greater security than in 1850-70, and inordinate influence in politics and organized labor” (Miller 1985, p. 492). Also, the children of Irish immigrants had better access to education, which helped them to become more assimilated into the American culture. Regardless of this upward movement in American society, Irish-Americans still felt a disconnect with mainstream America and they still felt as if they were forced out of Ireland, even though some had never set foot on the island. Even with this progress in social structure, “as late as 1904, Irish-Americans still made up a disproportionately high percentage (11 percent) of the nation’s casual laborers” (Miller 1985, p. 499), confined to heavy labor jobs like plumbers, roofers, mining, and iron making.
“Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” not only describes how great the ferry is, but that the people that take it are the ones that make it more interesting. Whitman describes “flags of all nations!” (Whitman, line 128) which describes the great immigrant population as many people were coming to America for better opportunities for themselves or for their children and future
the immense movement of these people contributed in a significant manner to the economic growth of the web, because these people originated from places where labour did not generate a great deal to places where it did. This migration transformed the receiving countries economies to the most dynamic in the world and hence, their societies into religiously and ethnically diverse ones. Nevertheless, these migrations sometimes caused abiding strains that persisted to beset politics nowadays. It also served as a safety measurement for the rural population tension in the arising countries societies, which would otherwise have led to greater unrest. Moreover, these substantial movements of people – including goods and money – led to three remarkable changes.
Therefore, Britain became rich and even though the trades earned a lot of money, the nobles wanted more. To make more money, King George raised the taxes of the American colonies. Most of the settlers were not all Englishmen, they were immigrants from other countries as well. Many felt like the taxes were too high. Because of these axes, this caused settlers to move west onto uncharted land.
