- from Immigration
The United States is not the only nation of immigrants. Central and South America, Canada, Australia, and Israel are also rich with immigrants. And with their descendants.
Many of these places were colonized by European nations. That’s why they have many European immigrants. Colonial rule of nations has all but disappeared. But there is still a lot of international migration. About 125 million people don’t live in the country of their birth. About 20 percent are refugees. They have been forced from their homes by persecution, war, or natural disaster. Let’s take a look at immigrants around the world.
