    A lopsided world
    Immigration and mass migration are not issues that the United States faces alone; they are worldwide phenomena.

    In the year 2000, about 175 million people lived outside their countries of birth. Between 1965 and 2000, the fraction of people living outside their home countries increased from 2.2 to 2.9 percent of world population.
