Immigration in Argentina (1880 to 1914)
European migration is the movement of people from Europe to other continents. It was a particularly intense phenomenon in colonial times, during the European wars and dictatorships, due to the demographic increases of the population in the region and the economic crises, famines, political repression and other difficulties present in the continent at that time. The reversal of these factors in Western Europe has changed the sign of the migratory balance, being this area nowadays an important recipient of immigrants.
Many emigrated in search of adventure, work and, in general, economic advancement in order to achieve greater expectations for the future. Several of them settled permanently in the new lands, created new nations and transferred the culture and part of the European heritage.
Another great recipient of immigrants has been Brazil, where about five million Europeans arrived between 1860 and 1920,(one million until 1900) about 2-4 million settled permanently. The number of immigrants has been increasing in the last few years. The number of immigrants has been increasing in the last few years.
The remaining theories of pre-Columbian contacts are highly speculative, and lack scientific consensus. There has been speculation about a possible African origin of the Olmec people, a hypothesis of racist origin based on the supposed “negroid” features of some Olmec sculptures, and later embraced by certain Afrocentrist currents.  Genetic evidence has shown that Olmec populations are not related to African populations, and the supposed anthropological evidence has been described as based on “superficial judgments and erroneous conclusions. “ There has also been speculation of pre-Columbian contacts by Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Phoenician, Egyptian, Roman, Celtic, Jewish, Arab  navigators or explorers, and African travelers from the Mali empire. None of these hypotheses has a scientific consensus, and they are usually considered as pseudo-archaeology and pseudo-history.
Immigrants in Argentina (1880)
Thousands of immigrants from Central America are in a caravan heading to the United States. In response, Donald Trump wants to cut funding to their countries of origin. Experts warn of a destabilization of the region. (23.10.2018)
The caravan is made up of more than 7,000 people. The migrants gathered on Sunday in Tapachula, where they slept after traveling about 40 kilometers from Ciudad Hidalgo. They are now heading towards Huixtla. (22.10.2018)
Citizens of the European Union today delivered proposals for the future of Europe. They would like a migration adapted to the needs of the European labor market. What about the thousands of Latin Americans seeking asylum?
Regardless of the content, from the Summit of the Americas remains the absence of some Latin American and Caribbean countries. Should the EU put its beards in soak for its next summit with CELAC?
Smuggled migrants are vulnerable to exploitation and abuse and their lives and safety are often at risk: they can suffocate inside containers, perish in the desert or drown at sea while being driven by smugglers who profit from a trade in which migrants become commodities. Because it is a clandestine crime, global value figures are difficult to determine with precision. However, based on two of the main smuggling routes: from East, North and West Africa to Europe and from South America to North America, it is estimated that this crime generates around US$ 6.75 billion annually for criminals operating in these regions alone . However, that figure is presumably much higher at the global level.
Migrant smugglers are becoming increasingly well organized and establishing professional networks that transcend borders and regions. As with other forms of organized crime, groups involved in this criminal activity have expanded their operations by changing routes in an attempt to expand into other markets and evade state repression. Some groups have merged or established cooperative relationships, expanding their geographic scope and the range of their criminal activities. For some criminal groups, migrants are simply another illicit trafficking product, along with drugs and firearms, and because migrant smuggling is a highly profitable business with a relatively low risk of detection, this criminal activity is attractive to criminals.
