 U.S. Facts Of Law:

What is Immigration?

When an individual moves from one country to another, they have immigrated to that country.  Immigration may be permanent or temporary and may be approved by the host country, in which case the immigrant is a documented immigrant, or they may not have gained approval, in which case they are an undocumented immigrant or illegal immigrant subject to deportation.

Immigration occurs every day as people move from one country to another for business, retirement, opportunity, vacation, work or to avoid persecution.  Normally, a person is not allowed into another country until he or she states his or her reason and intent and authorities grant a visa for entry.  When a large number of people want to leave one country to enter another, such as from Mexico to the U.S., there can be a problem.  The host country must have control over immigration to preserve economic conditions, conserve resources for its citizens, avoid allowing in those who would do harm to its citizens and for other reasons.
