Gallup: More Than 750 Million People Globally Now Wanting to Migrate

Breitbart – by Virginia Hale

More than 750 million people want to migrate to another country permanently, according to Gallup research published Monday, as 150 world leaders sign up to the controversial UN global compact which critics say makes migration a human right.

The Gallup World Poll survey, which interviewed 453,122 adults in 152 countries between 2015 and 2017, found that 15 per cent of the world’s adult population would like to move to another country if they had the chance.  

Noting this proportion had risen from 13 per cent between 2010 and 2012, and 14 per cent between 2013 and 2016, the pollster commented that rising populism and a backlash to mass immigration seen in many Western electorates has apparently not deterred would-be migrants from wanting to seek a better standard of living elsewhere.

Regionally, the desire to migrate was found to be highest in sub-Saharan Africa, where 33 per cent of adults wanted to migrate permanently, followed by Latin America and the Caribbean (27 per cent), European nations outside of the EU (26 per cent), and the Middle East and North Africa (24 per cent).

Gallup found there were 13 countries in which half or more of the adult population said they wanted to migrate to another country, with Sierra Leone (71 per cent) topping the list for its proportion of would-be migrants, followed by Liberia (66 per cent) and Haiti (63 per cent).

The U.S. remains by far the most popular country for people wanting to move abroad, with 21 per cent of potential migrants selecting it as their top destination, with Canada, Germany, France, Australia, and the UK each also ranking highly.

Politicians from around the world gathered in Marrakesh, Morocco, on Monday to sign their countries up to a UN accord declaring mass immigration to be “inevitable, desirable and necessary”; however a large number of nations including the U.S., Australia, Chile, Israel, and several EU countries withdrew from the agreement over concerns about national sovereignty.

Earlier this year, Breitbart London reported on data from the Pew Research Center which revealed that up to two-thirds of the 1.1 billion population — a number set to more than double by 2050 — of sub-Saharan Africa were wanting to migrate to Europe or the U.S., millions of whom were planning on making the journey within the next five years.

Analysts such as NumbersUSA president Roy Beck have long pointed out that mass migration into Western countries can never resolve the challenges faced by poor countries, especially as populations in the third world increase.

  1. The Kalergi Plan for the replacement of Europe is fully underway. I believe the replacement of whites in the USA is about to be jump started to a level that will make Europe look like a “Walk in the Park” if the democrats win it all in 2020.
    The Democrat/Bolsheviks will throw open the border and I expect 80-100 million migrants to push across in 4 years. The Bolsheviks will give them the right to vote and the White population will be reduced to 40% of the population or less in those 4 short years. Crime will sky rocket in the inner city with Migrants pushing Blacks out of their neighborhoods.

    By 2022, i see an attempt of genocide against Blacks and whites occurring as the immigrants begin their take over of the USA. As violence escalates total disarmament laws will kick in creating even more chaos.

    While some will say calm and order will be restored, the truth is i see the demographics changing in the USA so much that we may never restore our country.

    I figure we have 2 years or less; after that its going to be hard just to live and have a job.

    The funny part is all of these jack ass white antifa types are going to be stuck in their mom’s basement for the rest of their worthless lives. The current democrat leadership by supporting immigration will put themselves out of power when the migrants decide they want their own running the show.

    Just my thoughts on immigration.

    1. You are probably right, that is unless about 40 million of us get up off of our dead f-king asses and blast their asses out of our country. Of course that would take doing it instead of harping on how it is not going to happen.
      The fact is I disagree with you. I think this thing is about ready to erupt. Of course I’m sure back in 1775 your average person was talking about how the king was coming to take everything they have and enslave them with the same zeal you are.
      Any of you, speak for yourselves, they are not taking anything from me.
      What a sorry ass bunch of f-king cowards. Land of the free, just plain silly. Home of the brave, laughable.
      But all in all, there are enough American nationals out here to punk the rest of you into pointing your guns in the right direction because we are not going to let your cowardly asses let them destroy us. This whole thing will end when the average mutts out there become more afraid of us than they are of a small percentage of spineless communist bureaucrats, who are too weak to even do their own f-king.
      Purely disgusting.

  2. I’m going to migrate some were that warm year round once they all migrate some were else . Once I find the right place then all I need is Soros to pay them to leave . Be back later I’m hunting just for the right place with the ocean around it

  3. Hey I want to migrate to Antarctica, but I here despite it having no government and no real life that we supposedly know of (other than those joke science bases), I still have to apply for a permit to go there. Maybe I just need to find a way to climb over the ice wall.

    I’ve been thinking about taking a caravan of 10,000 or so people with me. Think George Soros and company will help fund my friends and I for a “better life” in Antarctica? I hear there’s many opportunities there. I hear there’s many rich people in tuxedos waiting to welcome us. Lol

  4. Actually, for those looking for some kamikaze action in their life, Sentinel Island is the place to live out the rest of your day. I say “day” and not “days” because most people don’t survive past their first hour, let alone day there.

    1. You’re in rare form today. Ever consider stand-up? You can open for Flee. (grin)

      Thanks for making me laugh today.
