During this research I aim to prove how these factors affect the process of adaption. It is intended to make useful recommendations to the host country and to the immigrants in order to adapt to a new country easily. It must be said that not everyone experience the same process of adaptation because everyone is exposed to different factors. Moreover, immigrants may experience more than one factor as one factor can lead to the development of other factor. 2.
Migration means leaving or abandoning something, and migration is also defined as the movement of individuals from place to place for the purpose of settling in the new place. A term that defines migration as the transition from the mother country to stability in another country, In which they move individually or collectively from their home country to a new home. Usually there are many conditions that lead to migration, such as the spread of civil or external wars in countries, or poor economic conditions, which are considered as triggers for migration. The countries of the Diaspora are keen to apply a range of legal and legislative mechanisms, which guarantee the protection and respect for the full rights of migrants. According to the general
Rather than attempting to construct a common identity amongst vastly different groups, the behaviors and beliefs that make certain groups different ought to be celebrated and respected, as these differences constitute the true American identity and provide a richness that allows America to continue strengthening. The issue of immigrants’ rights versus preserving dominant cultural traits in a society has only become more pressing as globalization has increased. This increased globalization has caused mass migration from certain areas of the world, often afflicted with famine, strive and poverty, to the West. As nations tackle these pressing issues and attempt to deal with their new residents, certain questions have to be answered. Are all cultures equal?
The essay also presents the difficulties encountered by immigrants in their host countries, which are often borne out of power dynamics in a “post-colonial world.” Embedded in the label immigrant is an otherness deriving from a previous location, place of origin, social identity, ethnic or racial identity, or national identity. These forms of otherness manifest themselves in different ways — through language or accent, skin colour, diet, mode of dressing, family values and sometimes employment. This label implies a permanent or prolonged relocation to a new environment” (Okome & Vaughan, 2012). There are three terms, which are often associated with migration. They are “immigrants”, “transnationalism” and “diaspora”.
Social and Cultural Challenges The social and cultural tensions which arise from hosting immigrant communities are often expressed as a failure to integrate or assimilate immigrants into society. Yet cleavages can be amplified due to the liberal and egalitarian doctrines which underpin European states. Provisions have to be made for immigrant citizens which may cause resentment in the existing population as a consequence of competition for diminishing resources, as well as the overarching factor of cultural stability(Lahav 2004, p1167). Yet this difficulty may be eased by the inclusion of non-EU immigrants in a reformulation of the European identity.

Immigration Helps America Immigration can be defined as passing foreigners to a country and making it their permanent residence. Reasons ranging from politics, economy, natural disasters, wish to change ones surroundings and poverty are in the list of the major causes of immigration in both history and today. In untied states, immigration comes with complexities in its demographic nature. A lot of cultural and population growth changes have been witnessed as a result of immigration. In the following paper, I will focus on how immigration helps United States as compared to the mostly held view that it hurts America.
Immigration is the movement of people into a new country. Immigration impacts the host-country, the country receiving immigrants, by changing the pre-existing culture of the host-country. Immigrants change the pre-existing culture by carrying their religious beliefs and ethnic traditions across borders, from the mother country to the host-country. In this way, immigrants add to the diversity of culture in the host-country. Over time these new ideologies and lifestyles can create a multicultural community filled with many different ethnicities.
Integration The integration of migrants is multidimensional process, and because it is a process of social change, it is difficult to clearly define. The term is often confused with terms such as incorporation, inclusion, adaptation, acculturation and adaptation, and sometimes assimilation. These variations can hardly replace the term integration, meaning of which is always associated with the ideal vision of the (national) society seen as a distinct whole. This meaning also implies the historical, political and social processes associated with the formation of the nation-state and the national self-understanding which affect the perception of immigrants, including the possibility of integrating them.
