¡Palabra!: Immigrant

Immigrant: Someone who moves to one country or region and intends to reside permanently in that country or region. Immigration means “in- migration” into a country, and is the reverse is emigration, or “out-migration.” The long term and/or permanent movement of human population in general, whether into, out of, or within countries (or before the existence of recognized countries) is regarded as migration.

Inmigrante: Alguien que se traslada a un país o a una región y tiene la intención de residir permanentemente en tal país o región. La inmigración significa “entrar” en un país, y es lo contrario de emigración, o “salir” de un país. El movimiento a largo plazo y / o permanente de la población humana en general, ya sea el movimiento al entrar o salir de los países o el movimiento dentro de los países (o antes de la existencia de países reconocidos) se considera la migración.
