Sometimes people do not have a choice about
moving. They are forced from their homes as
prisoners or slaves. Some people have to flee their
homes for fear of being killed or imprisoned. They are
called refugees. Some people must leave homes
destroyed by flood or hurricane. Others leave
because of a food shortage. When migrants do not
have a choice, the migrations are all push and no pull!

about these forced migrants? Do you think it mattered that
they came from difficult situations?
