Migrants are people who leave their country for any reason, such as employment, family reunification, or education. 

Refugees are people who flee their country because of credible threats of danger or persecution and because they’re not protected by their own government. 

Asylum-seekers are people who’ve applied for protection — refugee status — on arrival in a country besides their own.

Internally displaced people (IDPs) are displaced by conflict, violence, or natural disasters within their own country.

Immigrants are people from a foreign country who relocates to live in another country. They may or may not be citizens.

Aliens are people from a foreign country who is not a citizen of the host country. They may be there to visit or just stay for a while.

Undocumented immigrants/illegal alien are foreign-born people who do not possess a valid visa or other immigration documentation, because they entered the U.S. without inspection, stayed longer than their temporary visa permitted, or otherwise violated the terms under which they were admitted.
