    Re: The young migrants emigrat or The young migrant emigrates??

    Please ask unrelated questions in separate threads. I'm ignoring your first question, because your title deals with the second question.

    One migrant: The migrant emigrates.
    More than one: The migrants emigrate.

    I don't like the style of using "migrate" and "emigrate" in the same sentence. It's redundant.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
