Flying Emigrants

Flying Emigrants

How do people move between the city where
they live and their countries of origin?
It is interesting to notice how flights contribute
in moving people, working especially
as a connection for those moving from a
country and another. But the linking function
of airplanes do not end here.
New York City, Miami and Los Angeles are
three of the US cities with the highest percentage
of foreign-born people, and immigration
ows are one of the most noticeable
and interesting phenomena in our world.
People travel for various reasons - study,
business, pleasure... - but some of them
take a plane to change their lives.
How many passengers land in these three
cities, and how many come back thoughout
the year? How many are actually moving in
New York, Miami or Los Angeles?
