Essential Questions, Post Two
Many people move because of their jobs. However, some people move because of the situation in their home country. I believe I touched on this in my last post. Freedom, economy, and space are all possibilities for immigration, though I think there is another one. Similar to the economy issue, people might move sometimes simply because of taxes or health care. In the BrainPop video, they gave the example of the immigration from Britain to the New World upon the Mayflower. The main reasons were religious freedom and economic possibilities. This, among other things, can be the main reasons for other immigrations. Such other things are: 1) running from war-stricken or otherwise potentially dangerous countries, 2) running from potentially dangerous economic situations, or 3) wanting a change of scenery or job.
