      "Few, if any, countries have experienced emigration as extensively as Cape
      Verde. The diaspora outnumbers the resident population, and virtually every
      family has emigrant members. The importance of migration makes the country
      particularly vulnerable to the tightening of immigration policy in Europe
      and North America. Recent decades have been marked by declining emigration,
      increasing population growth, and considerable migration pressure."
