"Emigrate means to leave one country or region to settle in another.",

To "immigrate" means to come to a country of which one is not a native, usually for permanent residence

So James would have emigrated from UK and immigrated to California.

You would have emigrated from the US and immigrated to Canada"

In addition to being snarky, your FYI is also wrong.
Have you ever ever looked at a pre-printed Naturalization Service Declaration of Intent from the early 20th century? The US Government has very clearly printed "I emigrated to the United States of America from ______________ on the vessel _________"
