“Where asylum is used as a route to economic migration, it can cause deep resentment in the host Community”-David Blunkett. In the past years there has been a Migrant Crisis going on due to the corruption in the middle east. Many Refugees are coming from war torn countries to more welcoming areas like the United States and the European Union. This however affects the citizens of said areas who do not want the refugees coming to their countries. It also affects the refugees themselves because the routes they take can be dangerous. Moreover, the wars in the middle east are a major contributor to this crisis. In addition to the European Schengen Area. The refugee crisis is causing problems for both the United States and the European Union, but …show more content…
The issue starts over in the middle east, this article states that Syria is the biggest contributor of the crisis, as well as countries like Iran and Afghanistan (Migrant Crisis: Migration to Europe). In addition to all the issue that the middle east has is really a burden to its citizens. Moreover, all the violence is causing people to leave their home countries to go to a more stable country. Then again not all citizens in said countries will be happy seeing refugees come to their country, United States senators have proved this according to Guardian.com United States senators have said that they will not be accepting any refugees into their states (Cambin, Kingsley and Nardelli). Because the United States senators are not allowing refuges to enter their states, they are in fact helping groups like Isis, as the refugees will start to believe that their only hope for survival is to join with Isis (Cambin, Kingsley and Nardelli). That being said, by not accepting the refugees there will be serious problems on both sides. The refugees might end up staying in war torn countries and join potential terrorist groups, which will bring the problems with terrorism up in the United States and European Union. Even if the U.S and E.U agree to allow the refugees to come over to their countries many will dies trying as states by BBC, [Everyone is dying] because of how overcrowded it gets (Migrant …show more content…

Like this source states “Backlash against refugees is based largely on the fear that a Paris style attack could be replicated in America (Cambin, Kingsley and Nardelli). Moreover, the United States and the European Union are not the only ones who are down falling from this, but the refugees themselves are as well. Many of them are dying on the way to safer countries. As well as many of them are being separated due to the harsh conditions that abrupt from the middle east. Not to mention, it is also affecting the united of the European Union itself due to all the refuges who cross the borders of the Schengen area freely. With many choosing to go to Germany because according to TheWashingtonPost “Germany would offer temporary residency to all refugees arriving there (Sly). With this in the air, consequences are bound to happen for both parties, unless something is done. Both the EU and the US must take action to resolve all this chaos. Specifically, EU member states should be the

    Things have changed a bit, but not without disagreement. The Syrian refugees are experiencing major difficulties to gain entry into the United States. Even though many state governors are opposing taking in Syrian refugees, President Obama has plans to accept thousands. “The Refugee Act of 1980 dictates that refugee resettlement within the United States is managed by the federal government… Individual states do not have the legal authority to block refugee placement.” (“GOP governors threaten to halt Syrian refugee resettlement in their states” Associated Press) Many are saying that the participants of the Paris attacks were hidden amongst the thousands of Syrian refugees. State governors are using what happened in Paris as a reason to justify why we should not allow them to stay in the United States.…

    The topic of refugees has been a major issue in the United States for quite a long time. They allegedly commit all crimes and are the main cause of terrorism in the United States and Europe. Refugees differ from immigrants because immigrants have the opportunity to move, usually to seek better (economic) opportunities. Whereas, refugees are forced to move out of their homeland due to: conflict-induced displacement; development-induced displacement; and disaster-induced displacement. Where ever the immigrants choose to reside, they often face many negative stigmas about their ethnicity, how they’re believed to impact the given economy, and how they are perceived and forced to assimilate into the new society.…

    They need to be open minded, and accept that they are being looked to for help, and as a land of refuge. Recently there has been countless acts of terrorism, and this creates a very negative attitude toward the Middle Eastern people. Everyone has begun to assume that these attacks have to do with the excess amount of Syrian Refugees. This is not the case, in fact, all of the identified assailants involved in the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015 were citizens of European Union countries. Although the attacks were most likely coordinated by Islamic State operatives, the radicalism was “homegrown” and cannot be placed on Syrian refugees.…

    The main party that is opposing the refugees is the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West. Their reasoning for this is that they do not want anymore refugees to enter the country illegally. The main goal of this group is to protest against anything related to the religion of Islam. This extreme right wing party is known for “anti-Muslim protests drawing as many as 8,000-10,000 participants”. (TRAC).This group clearly does not supported the Syrian Refugees if they are an anti- muslim group since most of the Syrian refugees practice the religion of Islam.…

    If the United States never allowed Einstein in, he and many others, would of been killed and to this day we might not of had the opportunity to understand the basics of the earth.

    Shunning refugees is not only an insult to U.S. values, it is an indirect acceptance of ISIS’ warped viewpoints. ISIS has denounced refugees fleeing to the West, warning them that they would not be welcome in the U.S. and Europe. Therefore, by accepting refugees, America can defeat ISIS’ propaganda. Additionally, it has been revealed to be unlikely that a Syrian refugee will prove to be a terrorist. Refugees are subject to the strictest security checks of any group seeking entry to the United States.…

    Despite the belief of Syrian refugees being a threat to American security, banning them from the country is outrageous and will not solve anything. In most cases, they are scared of the very same things that Americans are afraid of. Americans should also accept the idea of living with Syrian refugees because President Obama has declared that 15,000 refugees will be able to resettle in the United States starting this year. The U.S. is able to carry out thorough background checks and interviews on these refugees to ensure everyone’s safety. So as the war in Syria continues to intensify, we must think about the victims in who are subjected to persecution but are still willing to start a new life here in the United…

    They have forced the union to ditch the Dublin principle on refugees and to apportion refugee quota for each member state, generating opposition from some members. Germany and Sweden, the most welcoming of migrants, have also become weary, because of serious, if not insurmountable, political, economic and security consequences. Some Eastern European members have even fenced their borders with barbed wire to stem the flow of the flood of migrants. Evidently, the union is fraying at the…

    The Holocaust offers a significant warning on the current policy on immigration; that is, most refugees are merely people who look for safety and people should forsake their aloofness to the victims. Some people may be frightened of ISIS soldiers entering the United States as refugees, but that is, in fact, not an efficient way for them to invade America because “slipping in a European recruit and exploiting the visa waiver gap in U.S. security would probably be a smarter use of terrorist assets.” (Reilly, Elizabeth). In the eyes of foreigners, United States is a cosmopolitan policeman, and why would a policeman not save lives? The appropriate universalization of the Holocaust helps to expose the weakness on…
