A Day Without Migrants






How would a day without migrants look like? Contrary to what some may believe, migrants play a vital role in the global economy.

Studies show that immigrants bring growth and innovation in both the countries they come from, and in those they move to. In the United States alone, immigrants have founded or co-founded companies such as Google, Intel, WhatsApp, PayPal, eBay, Tesla and Yahoo! Although they make up less than 15 percent of the population, skilled immigrants account for over half of Silicon Valley start-ups and over half of patents.

Most Western nations face a demographic time-bomb as their aging populations and low birth rates mean that they will have to rely on immigrants to drive and sustain economic growth. It is therefore in the best interests of these developed nations to support a safe and orderly migration.
