Who Moves to Find a Better Life?

I have noticed people using the terms migrant and immigrant interchangeably. But, they do have different meanings.

Migrants and immigrants both move around to find a better life. Here’s the difference:

A migrant leaves their country to get temporary work in another country. They intend to return to their country after a season.

An immigrant leaves their country with the intent to reside in another country permanently.

This blog post on Stilt. com,  a company focused on providing credit to immigrants and the underserved, gives a comprehensive explanation.

Should immigrants have rights?
