Citizens have difficulty trying to understand why immigrants emigrate from their countries. Emigration usually occurs from underdeveloped nations that are suffering from several unaddressed issues. The immigrant families move to more developed nations in search of more prosperous lives. Many of the nations' “natives” look down upon immigrants; they do not take the initiative to learn why immigrants left their mother countries. As a result, individuals begin to point fingers and blame the nation's afflictions on these foreigners. This provokes the development of strict laws and policies that jeopardize the progression of immigrants who desire to live more prosperous lives. Immigration is typically viewed as a problem, for everyone looks at the flaws that result from it. To elaborate, they do not take into consideration the contributions immigrants bring into society. Such contributions are current factors that serve as major influences in the development of nations.
