  Emigration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Emigration is the act and the phenomenon of leaving one's native country to settle abroad.
Emigration had a profound influence on the world in the 19th and the 20th century, when hundreds of thousands of poor families left Europe for the United States, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, and Australia.
Even though definitions may be vague and vary somewhat, emigration/immigration should not be confused with the phenomenon of involuntary migration, such as instances of population transfer or ethnic cleansing.

 "Great" Polish political Emigration (1831 - 1870)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The emigration consisted of politically compromised persons such as members of the insurrectionary government, envoys, activists and publicists, generals and junior officers (particularly volunteers), and also some subalterns and privates.
The Polish emigration of 1831 was, in the 19th century terms, a massive one, but its importance lies predominantly in the fact that, in intelectual terms, it played a paramount role in the history of post-Partition Poland.
The emigration assumed, for at least several years, a number of functions of the non-existent Polish state and became a center of the literary, artistic, and to some extent scientific life as well as the hub of the growing free political and social thought.

 Estimates of Emigration of the Foreign-Born Population: 1980-1990
Of the 1980 foreign-born stock, the highest emigration rate was for the cohort of 1970-1979 (19 percent), followed by the 1960-1969 (9 percent) and the before 1960 cohorts (7 percent).

This higher amount of emigration is consistent with related events in recent U.S. history: the continuous rise in legal immigration, admissions of refugees and political asylees, and the general amnesty given to the undocumented aliens and special agricultural workers under IRCA.

 Thomas Mann and the Proponents of Inner Emigration
While the definition of inner emigration was not, in itself, a source of critical discussion -- since, as stated, the existence of inner emigration was supported both by the Adenauer regime as well as by the Allied occupational forces before that -- the tone of the debate continued to be one of defense and apology.
Because the inner emigration authors were all national conservatives, they were empowered by the new German restoration; in addition, their actions as resistant forces during the war continued to be emphasized.
His reasoning in the controversy surrounding inner emigration -- that it was not only undesirable, but possibly dangerous and certainly of questionable morals, and that it denied the collective responsibility of all Germans for their own history -- continued to drive the debate in the years to follow.

 Report on Christian Emigration: Jordan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The phenomenon of emigration is one of tremendous concern for the churches in the region, as the number of believers leaving for greater economic opportunities, relief from the psychological pressure of living as a minority community, or relief from war and insecurity continues to grow.

 Migration Information Source - Cape Verde: Towards the End of Emigration?
The idea of emigration and return as a path to prosperity is a deeply rooted aspect of Cape Verdean society.

Cape Verde is one of very few countries to have experienced emigration on such a vast scale, and it is particularly vulnerable to the tightening of immigration policy in Europe and North America.
