Sometimes it isn't even about a better life but just about life. Now, as so many times before, "leftism" or other ideologies hasn't a lot to do with it....No; rather, it's the hope and promise of a better life. It's similar to what motivated several million Blacks to leave the Southern US in the 20th century in order to escape Jim Crow and take advantage of better economic opportunities in other parts of the US.
(check a bit what's happening these days in Sudan, for example).
