Immigration Strengthens Tolerance in the World

Immigration is the international movement of people into a destination country of which they are not natives or where they do not possess citizenship in order to settle or reside there, especially as permanent residents or naturalized citizens, or to take up employment as a migrant worker or temporarily as a foreign worker

· Most things get stronger when they are regularly challenged. That is how exercise and studying work to improve our bodies and minds. This is basic argument that how immigration strengthen tolerance. Immigration, however, by challenging tolerance also exposes intolerance. So you may get the impression that it causes more intolerance. This isn’t so. The backlash against immigration we see in many parts of the world isn’t new intolerance, but entrenched intolerance freshly exposed.

· Tolerance is the basic need of the whole world as our world became global village so there is less tolerance between different people from societies. To increase the level of tolerance, variety among people in a place is necessary.

· A Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation survey of nearly 1,700 Americans – including more than 1,000 in rural areas – reveals that attitudes toward immigrants form one of the widest gulfs between U.S. cities and rural communities. Rural residents are more likely than people in cities or suburbs to think that immigrants are not adapting to the American way of life. The poll also finds that these views soften in rural areas with significant foreign-born populations.

So when there is variety in the culture of country than tolerance will automatically increase because of interdependency

· Pakistan, my country is proudly the largest host of refugees in the world according to UNHCR.According to their report Pakistan host more than 1.45 million refugees and most of them are from Afghanistan.these refugees become immigrants because of the long afghan war and now they don’t want to go back there. I personally witness that now these people live with the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan and they have love for each other and their younger ones are marrying with each other, this immigration of afghans due to war however increase the level of tolerance and peace and interregional harmony.
