You’re thinking about immigrating to the United States with your family in the coming months or years. It’s been your goal for a while. Though you still think it’s a wise idea, someone asks you why you want to go, and it makes you think.
What are some of the direct benefits of immigrating to the United States with your family?
Everyone has a unique story
The story is different for everyone. For instance, those seeking asylum or coming from refugee camps are often just looking for protection, security and safety from persecution. On the other hand, students coming from wealthy, stable countries may be far more interested in advanced education opportunities or chances to network with successful peers as they begin their careers. Where you start helps define the benefits you and your family will be most interested in.
One of the most oft-cited benefits is the chance to start a business. Interestingly, studies have found that immigrants are vastly more likely to start companies than those born in the United States. For instance, back in 2017, immigrants represented a mere 13.7 percent of the population in the U.S. At the same time, about one out of every three people to start a company in 2017 was an immigrant — 30% of the total.
