The reasons why people from third world countries emigrate to first world countries.

In the third world no less than tens of thousands of people leave every single day to work in another country.

There was a group of travelers concerned about getting to their destinations; some were going to Europe, the U.S., some to the Middle East and yet others to Australia and New Zealand.

The third factor is mixed race marriage. With the rising recognition of Internet dating and made to order brides, men and women are migrating to stay with their newfound love.

In conclusion, as interracial marriages increase and waves of immigrant workers rise, family reuniting becomes imperative. This leads to a new set of travelers.
