Why did Coptic Christians from Egypt and Assyrian/Chaldean Christians from Iraq not migrate to Latin America in the early 1900s, certainly not in nearly the same numbers that Christians from Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine did at that time?

Many of them moved to Europe because it was closer to their native land and many also to North America and Australia. There is small community in Brazil. South America was too far and not as highly developed as Europe, US/Canada and Australia.

Syriacs/Arameans are largely concentrated in Sweden, Germany, Holland, Belgium, USA, Canada, Austria, Switzerland and Australia.

Probably because in that time what is today Lebanon and Syrian Levante were more overpopulated than others parts of the ancient Ottoman Empire and overpulated of Christians.

In that time they got to Brazil holding the ‘’Ottoman Turkish’’ passport… They were called Syrian lebanese or only Turkish. Most of them were from Levante area and Lebanon (because they saied) but Christians from all over Otoman Empire (also muslims) came to Brazil, but is impossible know exacly the numbers from modern countries they would be today.
