    Where were you born? Where do you live now? Are there others who live around you, go to your school, or play on your soccer team who were born in a different country?

    An immigrant is someone who moves from the country where they were born to a new country.  They may become a permanent resident of the new country, meaning they remain a citizen of their birth country but live in the new country permanently, or they may become a citizen of their new country, as if they had been born into the new country.

It is also possible that one country may pay less for the same job in another country, causing people to move to the country that pays more.
