           Human migration is taking place all over the world as wars, political upheaval, climate change, terrorism, trafficking, and extreme poverty displace people or make survival in one’s home region tenuous. As we have seen from anthropology and new DNA based ancestry analysis, global migration has been happening since the beginning of humankind. It has always shaped communities, economies and cultures.
