The article aim is to prove that Borjas (2016) estimation of migration rate close to 1 if labor mobility between the North and the South is fully allowed, matches with refugee mobility crisis faced by Western countries actually. An endogenous growth model with probability of migration is used to conduct the study. We find that, migration theories move toward a new paradigm based on refugee mobility crisis explanation in the economic literature. Since careers preferences and initial assets endowments play a great role in the decision to migrate, therefore, refugee mobility crisis is the excess unemployed labor force existence in the poor countries’ economic system since moving is risky if already hold a job. Conjugated to Western countries low growth rates and high unemployment rates as well as restrictive migration policy conducted, consequently, the UN 1951 asylum Convention needs to be reviewed.
