10 QUOTES WITH «MIGRATION»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word migration.
1
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
I am not against migration. It is simply pragmatic to restrict migration, while at the same time encouraging integration and fighting discrimination. I support the idea of the free movement of goods, people, money and jobs in Europe.
2
J. G. Ballard
Electronic aids, particularly domestic computers, will help the inner migration, the opting out of reality. Reality is no longer going to be the stuff out there, but the stuff inside your head. It's going to be commercial and nasty at the same time.
3
Traian Basescu
The increase in salaries at private companies has exploded, and Romania also faces a labor shortage, especially in construction. We believe that the Romanian market will remain an incentive, so that migration will not be an issue.
4
David Blunkett
Where asylum is used as a route to economic migration, it can cause deep resentment in the host community.
5
David Blunkett
In the U.K., we have always been an open, trading nation, enriched by our global links. Contemporary patterns of migration extend this tradition.
6
Junot Diaz
Migration gives a blank cheque to put anything you don't feel like addressing in the memory hold. No neighbours can go against the monster narrative of your family.
7
Mohamed El-Erian
The global realignment is accelerating the migration of growth and wealth dynamics from the industrial world to the larger emerging economies.
8
Nigel Farage

9
Vicente Fox
So if Arizona sees the federal government isn't assuming its responsibilities, it creates local laws. But migration and keeping security on the borders is not a local or state issue, it's a federal issue.
10
Michael Franti
If we do not change our negative habits toward climate change, we can count on worldwide disruptions in food production, resulting in mass migration, refugee crises and increased conflict over scarce natural resources like water and farm land. This is a recipe for major security problems.
