Pull Factors in Immigration
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"-Emma Lazarus.
 
2     This quote is written on the base of the Statue of Liberty. It welcomes immigrants to the "land of opportunity," the United States. For many years, freedom in the U.S. pulled immigrants to this country.
 
3     Pull factors help emigrants decide where to move to. These are conditions in another country that attract people from other nations. They give people the idea that life would be better somewhere else.
