A lot of people migrate from one place to another. Though individuals have their own reasons? Is it natural for one to be an immigrant at all?

Most people are technically immigrants. Take the U.S. for instance. Unless you are a Native American, called that for a reason, then you are an immigrant. And for the most part, if you want to go that far back, most of them walked here from somewhere else. Not sure what you were really asking, but I hope I answered it.

Thanks tweakpotter. Maybe my question is just a little too broad. What i meant was migration in search for greener pasture which is very rampant for third world citizens going to the west.

I think we have been immigrants ever since. Our ancestors and all native ancestors we have have been migrating due to change of season, looking for food or just trying to find the perfect settlement. I think it is just normal. The world is a big place for all of us. Just not enough means.:)

Scientifically speaking, humans were originally nomadic tribes, and hunter gatherer societies. We may have an instinctual inclination to go where there is better food and climate for our own survival. So there may be a natural instinct towards migration - allowing us to seek a more prosperous place to live.
