"Global Migration Patterns" Lesson Plan The United States has often been referred to as a "nation of immigrants." While immigration has historically been the country's foundation, immigration continues to shape the structure and composition of the population. The majority of migrants move in response to economic pressures, but some migrants—called refugees—move because of fear. Recognizing their story is also an important part of understanding international migration. The objectives of this course are to understand immigration to the United States, to identify major international migration streams, to evaluate the impact of migration on U.S. population structure, to explain the impact of major refugee movements on both source and host countries.
