Aspects related to national security in the context of the scale of crimes committed by economic migrants residing in Poland will also be discussed. Design/Methodology/Approach: In the research implementation process, data, and sources analysis, as well as a modeling method to show extrapolation of migration trends. Findings: The methodology used allowed the authors to determine that international migration processes have permanently entered the order of functioning of countries around the world. Practical Implications: According to the authors, showing current trends in global migration contributes to acting at international and national levels to counteract the negative effects of migration Originality/value: According to the authors, presenting the forecasted upward trend in international migration based on the logistic model of the number of migrants in the world may become a factor stimulating the activities of specific countries in terms of their security in the broad sense.
