I need a list of unconventional, interesting facts related to modern
international migration of human beings. I think I heard once that
Ecuador's biggest import is foreign money from emigrants sending money
back to their families. I am not particularly concerned about this
fact, but anything that is remarkable, outrageous, or
startling is helpful-- and reliable sources are, of course, important to note.
I know this is vague, but I just need some interesting facts related
to migration, immigration, emigration, migrant workers, historical
patterns-- anything.

In addition, I am looking for a map (or series of maps) that define
the most common migration routes, with arrows or by color with
numbers. (and not the ones from the IOM site). Thanks!
There is no answer at this time.
