How weird it is, when migratory birds come to our country we rush to enjoy the beauty. However, when the workers were desperate to go back their home, despicably we termed them as ‘migrant workers’( in our stuttering spoken English) and remained obnoxiously apathetic towards their woes! But they were immigrants or emigrants?
IMMIGRANT- A person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence.
