Migration on the increase, according to the UN
Friday, December 17th is International Migrant Day. The UN says migration is on the rise, with one in 32 people worldwide now living in a country other than that of their birth. That rises to one in ten in Europe and one in seven in North America. The United States has long been a beacon for people seeking to make a better life for themselves; our reporters Constantin Simon and Vikram Singh followed one Indian family who are doing just that.
