Migrants vs. Refugees, in economic terms

AsylumMarketplace shared a fascinating segment about the migrant vs. refugee crisis in Europe.

Refugee: is someone who “[has] to leave their country for fear of prosecution of who they are, race, religion, politics… [they feel they are] in danger”

Migrant: is someone “chooses to move, seek a better job, better schools for their kids, better life…”

Tracey Samuelson roughly breaks it down to 2/3 are refugees and 1/3 are migrants in the current European crisis.
