- 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 their descendants.
Many places were colonized by European nations and had many European immigrants. Colonial rule of one nation by another has all but disappeared, but international migration is still going strong. It’s estimated that about 125 million people now live outside the country of their birth. About 20 percent are refugees. They have been forced out of their homes by persecution, war, or natural disaster. Let’s look at immigrants around the world.
