Claim in 2014: Immigrants aren’t rushing to Moscow in search of opportunity.

Incorrect: Russia’s international migrant population is the world’s third largest. (Fact-check done in October 2016.)

Source of the claim: U.S. President Barack Obama (Aug. 2014).

While the U.S. was estimated to host nearly one-fifth, or about 46.6 million, of the world’s total international migrants in 2015, U.N. data for that year show Russia in third place among host countries, with over 11.6 million international migrants, a large portion of them in Moscow. Germany, with 12 million, claimed second place.

As early as 2000 and as recently as 2013, Russia ranked as the #2 destination in the world for international migrants, outnumbering then-third-place Germany by 2-3 million.
