Trying hard to find the best place for dwelling, almost all of them choose the USA and the rest go to Europe. According to the latest data, 61% of migrants live in such countries as the United States of America, Germany, Australia and France. Developed countries take advantages of the migrants as they found it to be a good and cheap labor source. That sounds to be too good to be truth.
