The article titled “Eurozone crisis ‘pushing migrants to UK’,” written by Dominic Casciani and appearing on BBC News on 13 April 2016,  details how the Eurozone crisis is pushing migrants to the United Kingdom (UK) from other European countries. The author states that the number of EU nationals in the UK has shot up from 700,000 to 3.3 million (Casciani, 2016). About 49% of these migrants are from Poland and Romania, while Spain, Italy, and Portugal contribute 24% of the migrants (Casciani, 2016). The article further states that the migration has been orchestrated by a mixture of pull factors including higher wages and economic prospects in the UK. More than 70% of the EU citizens applying for at least one-year residence in the country cite work as the main reason for their stay, with more than half of this number having already secured a job (Casciani, 2016). This article is related to Chapter 6 topic on migration.  From this chapter, migration is contextualized as relocation from the place of residence to another because of the pull and push factors.Migration does not happen just for the sake, but there is a reason behind it. Pull factors include the factors that attract people to relocate to a given place because there is something they cannot get in their current locations, while the push factors include those factors that force people out of their current location. In the context of this article, migration is facilitated by different pull and push factors.
