Immigrants are Leading the Way Across the World

In the current high stakes debate on immigration that is raging across the world, there are extremely divided opinions with firm polarization on both sides about whether immigrants are taking away jobs from local citizens.

Whether its technology, business, art, cinema, literature, journalism or politics, immigrants have been making their mark, inspiring people, creating wealth and new job opportunities that benefit the local citizens of their destination country as well as the country they have left behind through steady remittance of funds to their families back home.
