Why did the Mormons migrate to the Salt lake region?

The Mormon pioneers migrated to the Salt Lake region because they had been kicked out of every other place they had lived (Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois). The US government refused to assist them, so they traveled to Salt Lake, which was then part of Mexico, to seek religious freedom.
