Which countries will get the most applications for immigration visa if all countries open their borders without limits?

"Immigration seems to be making more headlines in recent years. As the world globalizes in terms of nations’ economies, trade and investment, borders are opened up more easily for “freer” flow of goods and products. People are supposedly freer to move around the world, too."

No one wants to go and live in a poor country with no job prospects or social services etc. So, we are left with those countries where you can lead a productive life and still have at hand medical services, unemployment benefits, a good employment base and some kind of industry etc. This leaves Canada, Europe, the US, Australia, parts of Asia such as japan, parts of Africa nd maybe south america and possibly Russia. However, Russia has an endemic crime problem and a dictatorial government. The US has problems with social services but possesses the advantage of accepting people who can contribute to the country and it offers vast opportunities although not as many as usual in the current economy. Canada and Australia are good targets as they possess all the requirement except they have a small population and not much industry, this makes employment less viable. Europe may be the main target I suspect although the US probably as well.

      Why do you think the USA is not as popular as it used to be, especially in many parts of Asia and Africa? What can the USA do about it?
