Refugees or Migrants?

Migrants move because they can.
Refugees run because they have no option.

Celts, Vikings and Norman's invaded and intermarried with those living in what we call Ireland. My family has Irish, Scottish, German, French and First Nations/Indian heritage, blood and DNA.

Why did my ancestors first come to the New World?
Possibly because at least one ancestor was a horse thief.
Others were seeking opportunity or freedom.
I'm glad those who got here just before my ancestors didn't bar the gate, even against the horse thief.
