Definition of EMIGRATION


EMIGRATION

The act of removing from one place to another. It is
sometimes used in the same sense as expatriation, (q. v.) but there is some
difference in the signification. Expatriation is the act of abandoning
ones country, while emigration is, perhaps not strictly, applied to the
act of removing from one part of the country to another. Vide 2 Kent, Com.
