Immigrants are people who permanently move from one country to the country you are living in. If you live in Turkey, immigrants are people who come to live in Turkey. If you live in Australia, they are people who come to live in Australia. All countries have a certain amount of Immigration (people coming to live there permanently) although during times of civil war, finanacial collapse or other turmoil, it can temporarily dwindle down to nothing.
