In a world that is constantly getting globalized, the migration phenomenon is natural and predictable. However, the reason for the transition from one place of origin to another for representatives of individual communities always manifests an individual nature and its own specifics. Immigration of Muslims in to the United States is connected with a number of factors and has been taking place over the years. Natives of the Arab world make up a significant share of the population in the European countries and in the United States and are every year gaining more and more influence in public life.
