CHAPTER 3

MIGRATION


Geography migration
GEOGRAPHY & MIGRATION

  • HGs look at:

    • From where people migrate

    • To where people migrate

    • Why people migrate


Migration cont
MIGRATION cont.

EMIGRATION

IMMIGRATION

To a location

- When I was 12 I immigrated to Malvern from Exton

  • From a location

    - Three years ago I emigrated from Malvern to Downingtown

Net Migration – difference between E and I

(know positive/negative; net-in/net-out)


ISSUE #1

Why do People Migrate?


Reasons for migrating
REASONS FOR MIGRATING

  • Most people migrate for economic reasons

  • Also migrate due to cultural and environmental factors

  • Don’t forget the role of distance decay in this matter!!! (why more Mexican workers than Argentinean?)

Push pull factors economic
PUSH/PULL FACTORS: ECONOMIC

  • Better job opportunities may pull/bad economy may push

  • Certain resources attract certain professions (petroleum may attract miners/engineers)

  • Area with rapid population growth will pull in service workers (construction workers, restaurant workers)


Push pull factors cultural
PUSH/PULL FACTORS: CULTURAL

Cultural factors such as slavery and political instability

Creation of new countries with new boundaries (people on wrong side of the border – ex. India/Pakistan in late 1940s)

Wars create refugees (ex. Sudan)

Hope of democracy may pull people in (Cubans coming to America)


Refugees sources destinations
Refugees: Sources & Destinations

Fig. 3-1: Major source and destination areas of both international and internal refugees. KNOW THIS MAP!!!!!!


Push pull factors environmental
PUSH/PULL FACTORS: ENVIRONMENTAL

  • Pull towards attractive areas (warm climates, mountains, beaches…)

  • Health concerns may force them to seek a new climate

  • Water issues/disasters force many to move (Hurricane Katrina)

  • Droughts causes others to leave (Sahel region of northern Africa)


Scene from the grapes of wrath
Scene from The Grapes of Wrath

The Dust Bowl in the 1930s led to forced migration from the Great Plains to California and elsewhere.


Hurricane katrina migrants
Hurricane Katrina Migrants

A major natural disaster represents an environmental push factor for forced migration.


Push pull factors in your family hw
PUSH/PULL FACTORS IN YOUR FAMILY (hw)

Ask your parents why they chose to live in the town they do. Try to get them to list at least 3 reasons and then you need to identify each reason as an economic, environmental or cultural factor and each one as a push/pull factor.

Ex. Found a great job (economic and pull)


Intervening obstacles
INTERVENING OBSTACLES

  • Before modern transportation they were mostly environmental (ex. Gold Rushers had a hard time getting to California……why?)

  • More modern IOs include such things as government regulations (ex. Quotas)


Internal migration
INTERNAL MIGRATION

  • Permanent movement within the same country

  • Two types

    1. interregional – from one region of a country to another (ex. NE to West)

    - historically, the main type has been from rural to urban areas (why?)

    2.intraregional– movement within one region (ex. Florida to Georgia)

    - historically, the main type has been within urban areas



International migration
INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION

  • Permanent movement from one country to another

  • Two types

    1. Voluntary – person chose to move for economic improvement

    2. Forced– compelled to move due to cultural factors, felt they didn’t have a choice

    *** be aware of migration transition (p.87)

    *** you are responsible for “Characteristics of Migrants” on your own (pp. 87-88)


ISSUE #2

Where are Migrants Distributed?


Global migration patterns
GLOBAL MIGRATION PATTERNS

  • Net Out = Asia, Latin America, Africa

  • Net In = North America, Europe, Oceania

  • Pattern of migration from LDCs to MDCs

  • Highest percentage of immigrants is found in the Middle East (why?, doesn’t seem to make sense)


Global migration patterns1
Global Migration Patterns

Fig. 3-2: The major flows of migration are from less developed to more developed countries.


Type 1
Type 1

1. List at least 3 reasons you think the major flow of migration is from LDCs to MDCs.


Net migration per population
Net Migration (per population)

Fig. 3-3: Net migration per 1000 population. The U.S. has the largest number of immigrants, but other developed countries also have relatively large numbers.




U s immigration patterns
U.S. IMMIGRATION PATTERNS

  • 3 main eras of migration:

    1. colonial period

    • mid-1800s-early 1900s

    • 1970s-today


1 colonial immigration
1. COLONIAL IMMIGRATION

  • Came from Europe (voluntary) and Africa (forced)

  • Prior to 1840, 90% of European immigrants came from G.B.

  • 400,000 slaves before 1808; 250,000 after


2 mid 1800s early 1900s
2. Mid-1800s – EARLY 1900s

  • U.S. offered the greatest hope of economic success (almost all during this Era were from Europe, the most from which country?)

  • Europeans who didn’t come to the U.S. went mostly to temperate climates (ex. Canada, Australia, southern Africa, southern South America……why?)

  • There have been three “peaks” of European immigration



3 recent immigration 1970s today
3. RECENT IMMIGRATION (1970s – today)

  • Immigration dropped sharply during1930s and 1940s (why?)

  • Has surged since the 1970s, most from Latin America and Asia


Immigration from asia
IMMIGRATION FROM ASIA

  • 7 million from Asia in last 25 years

  • China, Philippines, India, Vietnam

  • Many also go to Canada (Canada receives a higher % of Europeans and lower % of Latin Americans – what might explain this?)


Immigration from latin america
IMMIGRATION FROM LATIN AMERICA

  • 13 million from 1960 – 2005 (overtook Asia in the 1980s as the leading source of immigrants)

  • Most from Mexico (compare to Germany) and The Dominican Republic

  • Significant role played by the Immigration Reform and Control Act (1986)

  • same reason as other regions (pushed by poor economic situation and pulled by economic opportunity)


Migration to u s by region of origin
Migration to U.S., by Region of Origin

Fig. 3-4: Most migrants to the U.S were from Europe until the 1960s. Since then, Latin America and Asia have become the main sources of immigrants.


Migration from asia to the u s
Migration from Asia to the U.S.

Fig. 3-5: The largest numbers of migrants from Asia come from India, China, the Philippines, and Vietnam.


Migration from latin america to the u s
Migration from Latin America to the U.S.

Fig. 3-6: Mexico has been the largest source of immigrants to the U.S., but immigrants have also come from numerous other Latin American nations.


U s states as immigrant destinations
U.S. States as Immigrant Destinations

Fig. 3-8: California is the destination of about 25% of all US immigrants; another 25% go to New York and New Jersey. Other important destinations include Florida, Texas, and Illinois.


Big picture
BIG PICTURE

  • Pattern of immigration in U.S. has changed from mostly European to mostly Asian and Latin American

  • Reasons remain the same, pushed by poor economic/political conditions and pulled by economic and social opportunities

  • Crossing the U.S./Mexican border is relatively easy (T/F)

  • Define “undocumented immigrant”

  • List the 4 states in which more than 50% of recent immigrants are clustered

  • More than ¼ of all undocumented immigrants are located in this state alone

  • Define Chain migration

  • During the late 20th century most immigrants came from ___ and ___ (Asia and Latin America)

  • One reason fewer Europeans migrate to the U.S. is due to the fact that they have low _____ and _____ that can support the population. They are in stage ___ (natural increase rates; economies; 4)

  • Crossing the U.S./Mexican border is relatively easy (T)

  • Define “undocumented immigrant” (people who enter the country without proper documents)

  • Why have Mexican migrants recently started going to the Midwest in larger numbers? (take industrial jobs shunned by Americans)

  • What was the point and impact of the enclosure movement? (to make farms in England more efficient. It forced millions to emigrate from rural areas)


ISSUE #3

Why do Migrants Face Obstacles?


Immigration policies of host countries
IMMIGRATION POLICIES of HOST COUNTRIES

  • Two policies used by host countries to control arrival of foreigners seeking work:

    • Quota system

    • Temporary Work


Quota laws
QUOTA LAWS

  • Quota Act (1921)

  • National Origins Act (1924)

    • These two remained relatively unchanged until the 1960s

    • European bias ????

    • Led to a decline in immigration

  • By 1968 national quotas were replaced with “hemisphere” quotas

  • Hemisphere quotas were replaced by global quotas in 1978

    • breakdown of what type of people are permitted? (most are to reunite families)

    • Does this apply to refugees?

    • Asians have very effectively used the family preference strategy, leading to a great deal of chain migration


Brain drain
BRAIN DRAIN

  • Effects of U.S. immigration policies on countries with a lot of emigrants

    • Some are unhappy that they are losing this “brain power” to Europe and the U.S.

  • Should the U.S. care?


Types of temporary workers
TYPES OF TEMPORARY WORKERS

GUEST WORKERS

TIME-CONTRACT WORKERS

Workers (many from Asia)recruited for a fixed period for a specific job (railroads, mines, plantations…)

Many stayed after that time expired

Many Chinese living in other Asian nations

  • Citizens of poor countries who obtain jobs in Europe and the ME

  • Take low-skilled, low-status jobs that locals don’t fill

  • Benefits home and new country in different ways such as….?

  • What protects them from exploitation?

  • Most in Europe come from NA, ME, EE/SE and Asia

    • A lot of Turks in Germany


Economic migrant or refugee why does it matter
ECONOMIC MIGRANT OR REFUGEE?(why does it matter?)

Haitians were considered economic, not political refugees in the ‘80s until changed by a lawsuit by the Haitian people

Cuban emigrants are seen as political refugees since the ’59 revolution

- concentrated in Florida

  • Surge of Vietnamese to U.S. after 1975 created some issues (boat people)

  • 2nd surge in late ‘80s to other Asian nations

  • about 800,000 have ended up in the U.S.


Cultural problems faced while living in other countries
CULTURAL PROBLEMS FACED WHILE LIVING IN OTHER COUNTRIES

Type 1: List 5- 10 problems you think you would face if you were an immigrant (forced or voluntary) in another country.


Cultural problems faced while living in other countries1
CULTURAL PROBLEMS FACED WHILE LIVING IN OTHER COUNTRIES

U.S. Attitudes toward Immigrants

Europe & Guest Workers

Isolated (usually arrive alone, send most money back home, experience language & cultural barriers)

Some natives dislike/fear guest workers (why?)

Recent efforts in Europe and ME to reduce the # of guest workers due to lower economic growth

Troubles in Fiji?

  • 19th century – immigrants were often viewed with suspicion but helped settle new territories and extend U.S. control

  • Opposition increased in early 20th century as the frontier “closed”

  • Recent issues about things such as allowing/denying undocumented immigrants access to public services such as schools, day-care centers, health clinics…

10. Why is it important to distinguish between economic migrants and refugees?

- Refugees are given priority over economic migrants. Ems are generally not admitted unless they have special skills or close relatives already there; refugees don’t need these two requirements


ISSUE #4

Why do People Migrate Within a Country?


Types of internal migratrion within the same country
TYPES OF INTERNAL MIGRATRION (WITHIN THE SAME COUNTRY)

INTERREGIONAL

(between regions)

INTRAREGIONAL

(within the same region)

Usually from older cities to suburbs

  • Usually between rural and urban areas


Migration between regions within the u s
MIGRATION BETWEEN REGIONS WITHIN THE U.S.

  • Interregional was more prevalent in the past (why?)

  • Most famous example of large-scale internal migration in U.S. history? (interregional or intraregional?)

  • Population center has changed over the past 200 years (how? Why?)


Interregional migration in the u s
Interregional Migration in the U.S.

Center of population in the u s
Center of Population in the U.S.

Fig. 3-12: The center of U.S. population has consistently moved westward, with the migration of people to the west. It has also begun to move southward with migration to the southern sunbelt.


Migration within one region within the same country
MIGRATION WITHIN ONE REGION(WITHIN THE SAME COUNTRY)

  • Much more intraregional than interregional migration today

  • Usually from rural to urban areas

  • Today nearly ½ of world’s population lives in urban areas, in 1800 it was about 5%


Migration from rural to urban
MIGRATION FROM RURAL TO URBAN

  • Industrialization in 1800s led to larger urban populations

  • ¾ of current U.S. population lives in urban areas (5% in 1800)

  • In LDCs this has skyrocketed and accounts for 50% of population increase in those areas (ex. Sao Paulo, Brazil)


Brasilia brazil
Brasilia, Brazil

Brasilia was created as Brazil’s new capital in 1960 and since then has attracted thousands of migrants in search of jobs.


Migration from urban to suburban
MIGRATION FROM URBAN TO SUBURBAN

  • In MDCs most intraregional migration is from cities to suburbs (opposite in LDCs)

  • Unlike other migration, reasons are not related to employment (pulled by lifestyle)

  • Consequences include converting farms to developments, more roads, sewers, schools….


Migration from metropolitan to nonmetropolitan
MIGRATION FROM METROPOLITAN TO NONMETROPOLITAN

  • New trend in late 1990s, more people in MDCs immigrated into rural areas than emigrated out of them (counterurbanization)

  • Why? – growth of suburbs, lifestyle, less isolation with new technologies, retirees, leisure activities
