This paper explains that human migration includes immigrants, refugees, asylum seekers, and internally displaced people. The author points out that, while each cause carries validity, opening the doors to all migrants can cause grave implications for the host country. The paper relates that migrants, specifically those people who have the labor skills, intellect or social and economic status, can contribute to a host country. However, this situation must be balanced with the needs of the migrants in terms of safety, economic opportunity, education, food and shelter, and assimilation.

From the Paper:

"The framing of the migrants who are refugees or seeking asylum is different from that of legal or illegal immigration, simply my motivation. Political, religious, social membership, and environmental refugees and asylees account for a growing number of people who flee persecution or conflict each year. In comparison to legal or illegal immigrants, refugee and asylum seekers are looked upon with a more compassionate, gentler gaze. And although aiding migrants of such statics can place a strain on economic and natural resources, assisting refugees and asylees can be esteeming for the host country and revered globally."
