Migration and the European Union
  • Open borders: the largest flow goes to the 'richer' parts, and a small flow of elderly people from old people who move to warmer countries
  • Migrant workers from outside of Europe come to work here (refugees). (Asylum-seekers, if they don't get asylum, some of them stay illegal)
  • Fort Europe: the EU has strict rules for immigrants
